PIONEER'S DEATH IS REVEALED BY UNCLAIMED MILK

A tell-tale milk bottle that hadn't been picked up from Saturday's delivery led in the discovery of the death of O. P. Robb, 74, in his trailer parked at the south end of Sullivan.

Oscar Watts, deliveryman for Deakin's Dairy, had placed the bottle as usual on a chair outside of Robb's trailer Monday at 10 a.m. the bottle was still there. Watts, thinking that Robb might be ill, and hearing the radio going, opened the trailer door. Robb was lying on his bed with his feet on the floor.

Robb homesteaded in an early day between Eva and Elkhart, Kans. He was a Spanish-American War veteran and pensioner. His only local relative is Lester Hargrove, 217 N. Academy, a cousin. Another cousin, Albert Hargrove of Walsh, Colo., was a pallbearer.

Services for Robb were held at the Howlett Chapel, Tuesday, 2 p. m. Interment was at Elmhurst cemetery under Howlett direction.
