JOHNATHON R. CRITES

HOMESTEADER

Funeral services for Johnathon R. Crites, formerly of Havre, and deputy collector of customs, at Peskan, who died at Bonner's Ferry, Idaho, April 14, were held at Hingham, Saturday afternoon. Havre Lodge No. 55, A. F. & A. M. was in charge of the funeral services, Rev. Bickle, preaching the funeral sermon, and C. E. Artman, worshipful master, performing the graveside services.

A large delegation of Havre Masons and members of the customs and immigration service attended the last rites for the deceased.

Funeral music was furnished by a male quartet, and a solo was rendered by Henry O. Woare of Chester. The little church at Hingham was filled to capacity with sorrowing friends and his widow.

Johnathon R. Crites homesteaded near Hingham previous to 1912. He was deputy sheriff of Hill County under Henry Loranger from 1912 to 1916, once operated a garage here, and also a butcher shop.

He entered the customs service in July, 1916, and was first deputy collector of customs at Sweet Grass, later at East Port, and at the time of his death, at Peskan, 40 miles north of Browning.

He had recently been in ill health, and not long ago was advised by his physician that he should seek a lower altitude on account of the bronchial and throat affection which was troubling him. About two weeks ago, he and his wife left Peskan, he having taken a 30-day leave of absence. But he became ill and died at Bonner's Ferry Tuesday.

He wife was formerly Miss Fanny Wilbur. Mr. Crites was a member of lodge No. 41 A. F. & A. M. at Bonner's Ferry.
