    Hansell Pinckney Wells died yesterday morning at 9:20 o'clock at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Annie Smith, 2010 Southern avenue.
    Deceased had been ill with the grip for two months, but had improved and hopes were entertained for his recovery. He had a relapse Tuesday and sank so rapidly that little hopes were entertained for his recovery and the end came yesterday morning.
    Deceased was 74 years old Oct 11, 1907. He was born in St. Helena parish and his entire life was spent in Louisiana. He was educated in Kentucky, attending college with the lamented J. M. Foster and J. M. Hollingsworth.
    He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Laura Brown, and they would have celebrated their golden wedding Dec 25 next.
    Captain Wells served during the Civil War as a captain in Colonel Harrison's cavalry, a company composed of men from North Louisiana.
    Deceased was a lawyer and was a member of the local bar at the time of his death. He lived at one time in Delhi and was a member of the Legislature from Richland parish, serving two terms. He was a Mason and an Odd Fellow.
    Besides his wife, he is survived by three children: Mrs. Annie Smith and William and Percy Wells.
    One son, H. P Wells, Jr. a member of the local bar also died here a few years ago.
