Register and Argus, Elkader, Iowa, Thur., 21 Feb. 1918.

The death of Ernest Fuelling, of Farmersburg, occurred at the Moran hospital Tuesday, after he had been operated on. His physical condition was so poor that he could not rally after the operation. His body was taken to his home yesterday, where arrangements are to be made for the funeral. His family has been in quarantine for scarlet fever, and it is impossible to learn just what arrangements have been made. An obituary will be expected next week.
