1898. PRICE $1.00 PER YEAR. to at to as Death of Mrs. Aldrich. Mrs. O. B. Aldrich died at her home in this city Saturday evening, November 26th. She had been unconscious from the birth of a little daughter on the preceeding Monday, and the family and friends fully realized the seriousness ot her condition. All that medical skill could suggest or affection execute was done, but without even temporary benefit, and Saturday evening she passed away surrounded by those she loved but did not know. We have heard that she saw and knew the baby and said "It is mine." We hope that was so, as to her the pleasure would have been something to make her forget her pain, for the moment at least. The funeral was conducted Sunday by Rev, Henderson of the Congregational church, at the family residence, and the remains taken to Aurora, Illinois, for burial. Many Garnett friends were present to express their sympathy. There were also present the father and mother of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Bailey of Emporia, Mr. Louis and Miss Emma Aldrich of Tipton, Iowa, brother and sister of Mr. Aldrich, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Cleminsr, the latter a sister of the deceased, of Nickerson, and Mrs. W. R. Rolfe of Aurora, Illinois, also a sister. Mrs. Aldrich was born at Aurora, 111., June 13th, 1878, and came to Nickerson some years ago with her parents, her father being a railroad man in the employ of the Santa Fe. She was married to Mr. O. B. Aldrich October 26th 1896, and removed to Garnett within the past year when the First State Bank of which Mr. Aldrich is assistant cashier, was first organized. During her residence here she made friends of all who made her acquaintance and was universally esteemed and ad-mired. The entire community feels more than the ordinary degree of sympathy for Mr. Aldrich and the fam- iiy. Mr. Aldrich accompanied the remains to Aurora for burial and arrived home Tuesday afternoon.
