M. H. Dickinson, an Old Citizen of Kansas
City, Dies in Michigan.

Martin H. Dickinson, who has lived in Kansas City since 1857, and who has been identified with the book and stationary business here since about the close of the war, died yesterday at Escanaba, Mich., where he went about ten days ago for the benefit of his health. Mr. Dickinson had been in poor health since the early part of last winter, when he sustained an attack of la gripped, which left him in an enfeebled condition, and he seemed everafter to suffer from something like an asthmatic complication. He spent the early part of the summer in Colorado and returned to Kansas City about August 15. After reaching Escanaba he appeared improved, but Wednesday word was received here that he had taken cold and was seriously ill.
Nothing more was heard until news of his death came.
He was a native of Oneida county, N. Y., and was 54 years of age last May. In politics he was a Republican. During the war he was a lieutenant in a Kansas company. His wife and four grown childrein—three daughters and one son-survive him. The body will arrive here this evening and arrangements for the funeral will then be made. The funeral will probably take place from All Souls' Unitarian church, of which he was a member., and interment will be in Union cemetery, where the family has a lot.
