Take Action on Death
Of Mathias Nickels
Dehm Council, No. 172, C.B.L., Holds
Special Session To-Night.
A special meeting of Dehm Council No. 172, C. B. L., will be held this evening at its rooms in the Hoffman Block to take action on the death of Mathias Nickels. Every member is urged to attend.
Mr. Nickels was born in Germany, December 21, 1841. He came to this country in 1871 and shortly afterward returned to his “Fatherland,” taking active part in the Franco-Prussian War.
Upon coming to America for the second time Mr. Nickels associated himself with the firm of N. Peters & Co., with whom he remained for eleven years. He then started a grocery business which he continued until his death, which occurred yesterday morning.
He is survived by three children, Nicholas J., Mathias and Frances.
