Allstraut, Obituary/Death NoticePorter County obituaries and death notices . . . .


A Swede man, 70 years of age, got off a west bound train at Porter Station Thursday evening last, and fell upon the side-walk. He was carried in immediately and laid down in the station house, and then was found to be already dead. A coroner's inquest found his name to be Allstraut, that he was five feet four inches high, of slender build. He is said to have been in that vicinity some years ago, engaged in peddling trinkets. His satchel was examined by the coroner, and all its contents found to be brass jewelry, varieties of stones and other worthless traps.
