J. C. Robertson Dead.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, 1901, J. C. Robertson, of Eagle township, died of pneumonia at the age of 70 years. Mr. Robertson was one of Barber county's most highly respected citizens, a substantial farmer and venerable old gentleman who enjoyed the good will and friendship of all whom he had an acquaintance. His dealings among men were always honest and cordial and his example in life is one from which the younger generation may profit.

He is survived by one son, Wm. Robertson, and a son-in-law, Geo. W. Frisby, who have the sincere sympathy of many friends.

Funeral services were conducted from the residence on Friday by Rev. J. F. Irwin, of this city. The remains were laid to rest in the family grave yard by the side of the wife and mother who preceded him three years ago.
