Mr John Abernethy died at his home a few miles southwest of town Monday after a short illness with pneumonia. Only a few days before his death he was in town mixing with friends and seemed in the best of health.
John was a good citizen and was making a success on his farm. His remains were laid to rest in the local cemetery this morning.
Mr W.B. Abernethy was called here Wednesday, from Joplin, Mo on account of the death of his brother Mr John Abernethy.
