THE WESTERN STAR, 1 January 1915
Obituary of ED STRAIT

Sometime last spring Ed Strait, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Strait, who live on the May McDonald farm in Shimer-tp., began to show symptoms of being afflicted with that dread disease tuberculosis. His condition
gradually became worse although everything possible was done to relieve him. On Tuesday of last week he was taken to Wichita for treatment, but the specialist gave little or no hope of his recovery. On last Friday
the young man, accompanied by his father, started on their return home. While on the way young Strait became worse, and when the train was near Rago and while lying on a cot in the baggage car, he passed away.

The body was brought on to Coldwater and on Saturday was conveyed by automobile to Riverside, Ness-co., where burial was made. Undertaker, Elza Holmes and the stricken parents accompanied the body to that place. Deceased was about 26 years of age. He came to this county with his parents from Ness-co. a year or so ago. The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of all.
