The Death of Eugene Kolb. He Was Sick But One Day

Eugene Kolb, well known as an employee for some time past of the Lewistown Meat and Provision Company, died suddenly at his home Wednesday afternoon about 3 o'clock, having been complaining but about one day, and was not considered seriously ill until a very short time before his death.

On Tuesday he made a trip to Kendall and on his way home in the afternoon, ate some noodle soup at the half way house. Immediately thereafter he began to feel bad and upon getting back to town looked up Dr. Hedges and got a prescription. He was not feeling at all well in the forenoon Wednesday but go up and ate dinner. About 3 o'clock Dr. Treacy got a message to come at once to the Kolb home and upon arriving there found that Mr. Kolb had died about 20 minutes prior to his coming. An autopsy was performed and revealed a state of chronic coloitis and inflammation of the stomach, liver and intestines, all of which of long standing and very naturally caused the sudden death of the sick man. Mr. Kolb was buried at 10 o'clock Friday morning in the Catholic cemetery.

The deceased was about 45 years of age and leaves a wife to mourn his untimely death. He was a hard working man, provided well for his family, was true to his friends and possessed the sincerest respect of all who knew him, either in a business or social way.
