Fails to Survive Kidney Operation in Wichita

Edgar Johnston, who since 1935 had been living on his farm near Laverne, Okla., with his brother, George Johnston, and wife, died at 3:20 a.m. Thursday of this week in Wesley hospital, Wichita.

He had been receiving treatment for kidney trouble since last fall and was taken to Wichita last week.

On Tuesday he underwent an operation in the Wesley hospital for the removal of a kidney stone and on Wednesday his brother, Earl, of Capron, Okla., who was with him, telephoned his brother, Walter R. Johnston of this city, that Edgar was improving.

However, Edgar suffered a relapse and died soon afterward.

The body is being brought to Coldwater. Funeral services will be held at the Presbyterian church in Coldwater at 2:30 p.m. Friday of this week. Burial will be in Crown Hill cemetery by the side of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Johnston.
