Dated March 6, 1902


Dr. J.W. Hines died at his home on Eagle street yesterday morning at half past five o’clock after an illness lasting about eight weeks. His death was due to paresis superseding an attack of gastritis. For the past few days his condition has been hopeless and he relapsed into unconsciousness early on Friday and remained in that state until death came.

The closing days of his life were lonely and sad and only relieved by the assiduous care and nursing of his physician and a few devoted friends. He had no relatives here to soothe his dying hours. He was about sixty-five years of age and unmarried.

Dr. Hines was a graduate of the University of Virginia, and was a native of the state of Virginia. He was a Southerner from the tips of his finger to the crown of his head. He saw service in the Civil War and was also a surgeon in the confederate army.

In 1880 he came to LeMars and for many years was in partnership with Dr. C.J. Hackett, who died some five years ago. He was an able man in his profession and enjoyed an extensive practice. At the time of his death he was senior member of the firm Hines & Reeves.

Dr. Hines was a gentleman of the old school, polished in his manners and possessor of great scholarly attainments. He was of a reserved and dignified nature and was highly though of by those who knew him well. He will be much missed in many circles. Of his early history and relatives not much is known as he was reticent on these points. He has a sister at Greenville, West Virginia, a half brother, Charles Hines, of Kansas City, and a nephew, Frank Butts of Baltimore. Mr. Butts who formerly lived here is expected here today and funeral arrangements will be made on his arrival.
