The Grave

John Holbrook Sr. died at his home, on North Tenth street, at 8 o’clock on Sunday morning, of paralysis of the heart. the deceased had been sick some time, having suffered a stroke of paralysis some time ago, and the death was not unexpected. The funeral will be held on Tuesday after noon at 2 o’clock from the residence. Rev. C.H. Remington will conduct the funeral exercises.

Mr. Holbrook was well known in Fort Dodge, where he had lived for many years, and the news of his death will bring sorrow to many friends. He leaves a wife and two children, John Holbrook Jr. of Manson, and Mrs. Milchrist of Sioux City.

The funeral of George McNett, whose sad death as the result of an accident, occurred on Tuesday, was buried from the Sacred Heart Catholic chuch at 10 o’clock Friday morning. In spite of the biting cold, a large number of the friends whom the dead man had made during his years of residence here, were present at the church, and the floral tributes were many and beautiful, including one elaborate piece from the members of the order of Locomotive Firemen, of which the deceased was a member, who attended in a body.

Impressive funeral services were conducted by Father Heelan, and many followed the body to his last resting place in the Catholic cemetery.

The sympathy of many friends goes out to the grief-stricken widow, into whose happy home life the rude hand of death has so suddenly broken.

The pall bearers were chosen from the number of Mr. Mcnett’s fellow employees.
