Full Text

James A. Hoth of Wilmette was killed and E. C. Mulligan of Evanston was injured, as the result of an automobile accident on the Glenview road, west of Wilmette Thursday night about 6 o'clock.
Mulligan and Hoth were returning from a trip to Riverside in Mulligan's car. They were driving along at a fair rate of speed. Mulligan attempted to turn from the left to right side of the road and the car jumped into the ditch. Mulligan was driving the car and from some cause or other was able to escape with a few bruises. Hoth suffered a fracture at the base of the brain.

H. C. Schuett of Wilmette was a few yards ahead of Muligan's [sic] machine. He saw the accident and returned to the place to give assistance to the injured men. Hoth was taken at once to Evanston hospital. He never regained consciousness and died Friday morning. Mulligan was taken to the hospital, where his injuries sere cared for and he was removed to the home of his mother at 2031 Sherman avenue. His condition is not considered serious by Dr. R. W. Bartholomew, who attended him.
Mr. Hoth was 46 years old and was a resident of Wilmette all his life. He was engaged in the ice and coal business. He leaves a wife and four children, all living in Wilmette.
The inquest which was to have been held last Saturday was postponed until August 4 on account of Mr. Mulligan being unable to attend.
