DR. William A Drane Passes Early Monday The passing of Dr. William Arthur Drane at six o'clock at his home, Monday morning has thrown a pall of gloom over the town. His death was not unexpected as he had been critically ill for more thatn a week from an illness extending nearly a year.
Dr. Drane has been for 46 years an eminently successful practioner in Buena Vista. He was a man of brilliant intellect and possessed many noble traits of character. He was progressive and public spirited and an outstanding citizen of the county.
Dr. Drane was particularly fond of children and his
gentleness in administering to their ills made him
beloved by all and his successful treatment of
children's diseases gave him an extensive practice.
Funeral services were held Tuesday morning from
residence which was attended by a large
representation of sorrowing friends and relatives.
A tender tribute was paid Dr. Drane by Hon Ed
Mathis, of Americus, who couched in lovely words the
affection existing between the two and called to
mind many noble virtues of the deceased.
Rev C R McKibben, assisted by Rev G A Briggs
conducted the services. Interment took place in the
family plat in the Methodist Cemetery.
Dr. Drane was born on Oct. 27, 1860 and was a son of
