Arthur Mortinson

Word was received here Tuesday of the death of Arthur Mortinson at his home at Toronto the day before. Arthur was taken sick a short time after leaving Vienna and during the past year had been treated by the best physicians in the country who were unable to benefit him. A short time ago he had his leg taken off in a Chicago hospital in the hopes of saving his life, but the disease from which he suffered had too firm a hold on him and death came as a welcome release in his case.
