THE WESTERN STAR, 15 March 1907
Obituary of D. W. HIND

The announcement yesterday morning that D. W. Hind had died the night before at his home in Protection tp. came as a surprise to the people all over the county. Many were not even aware that he was sick. Death
occured at 10:47 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, 1907. The immediate cause of death was uraemic poisoning. He had been sick only a week or so and
no apprehensions had been felt that his condition was dangerous.

Deceased was a native of Ohio. He was educated principally in Cleveland, that state. In about the year 1886, he emmigrated to Clark-co., Kans., and proved up on a claim the southeastern part of that county. He taught a few terms of school in that county and in this county, his first term in this county being in Protection during the winter of 1894 and 1895. Mr. Hind was a skilfull surveyor and civil engineer. In 1898 he was
elected county surveyor of this county, which office he still held at the time of his death. Before coming to this part of Kansas he had assisted in an extensive survey through the southwestern portion of the United States.

Mr. Hind possessed many of the qualities of true manhood. His mind was well stored with useful information and his heart always beat in sympathy and in love for his fellow-men. In the truest sense D. W. Hind
was a good citizen and useful member of society in the community in which he lived. He had always been a hard working man and in his dealings he was upright and obliging with all. At the time of his death Mr. Hind was about 42 years of age.

Funeral services will be conducted at the M. E. church in Protection some time tomorrow. The father of the deceased is expected to arrive this afternoon from Ohio. Rev. I. W. Bailey of the Baptist church will preach the funeral sermon. The Odd Fellows lodge of Protection, of which Mr. Hind had long been an honored member, will have charge of the burial services. Interment will be made in the Protection cemetery.
