The stores of Madill were closed from 4 to 5 o'clock to pay tribute to Mr. Aydelotte.

The deceased was born at Princeton, Ind. November 9, 1863. Had he lived until the coming November he would have been three score and 10 years old.

Mr. Aydelotte moved to Shawnee, Okla, in January of 1903, and from there to Madill in 1918. In 1909 he was married to Miss Annie Laurie Hooe, who survives.

Mr. Aydelotte was converted and joined the Methodist church here in 1923, while Rev. O. L. Adams was pastor. Since that time he has been very active in church work, being a steward of the church at the time of his death. He was also prominent in civic organizations.

Mr. Aydelotte was from a family of four brothers and all preceded him in death. Other than Mrs. Aydelotte, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Nora Thompson of Aubrey, Tex and Miss Ann Aydelotte of Kansas City, Mo.

Mr. Aydelotte was manager of Aydelotte Gin company for many years and up until only a short time before he was taken to the hospital. He had been in ill health about a month before he was taken to the hospital, but did nicely up until a short time before his death.

One of Mrs. Aydelotte's sisters Mrs. H. E. Turley of St. Louis, Mo., was here for the funeral services as were Mr. Aydelotte's two sisters.
