THE WESTERN STAR, 24 December 1915
Obituary of S. C. STRAIT

S. C. Strait who was kicked on the head by a horse on Saturday, December 11, died at 6:25 p.m. on last Sunday at the home of J. E. Holwagner in this city, where he has been cared for since the accident occurred. During the week which elapsed between the time of the accident and his death, he was conscious only for a short time on two or three occasions.

At the time death occurred there were present, his wife, their son, C. C. Strait, and his wife and their daughter, Mrs. Chas. Cowles, and her husband, of Kinsley, Kans. The body was taken on Sunday afternoon to Ness-co., the home of the family before they came to this county a few years ago. The unfortunate accident which resulted in Mr. Strait's death called forth the sincere sympathy of many friends of the bereaved family. Mr. Strait was a good citizen, a kind husband and father and a good friend of all. At the time of his death, he was about 63 years of age.
