Dies Very Suddenly.


  Aaron McKinney, an aged gentleman living on N. Evergreen avenue, died very suddenly at his residence last evening at 6 o’clock.  He has been rather poorly all winter, but yesterday was feeling so well that he went out to vote in the afternoon and while down town got shaved.  He went back home and laid down to rest, and in just about an hour his wife found him there dead, he having passed very quickly and without pain into the next world.  Mr. McKinney has been a resident of this county for over twenty years.  He came in 1880, and bought a farm north of the city, but for the past six years has lived in Chanute.  He was born June 9, 1827, in Mauchchunk, Pa.  He is well known to the old settlers, and to the old soldiers as he was one of them.  The funeral will be held at the Presbyterian church Thursday at 2 p. m., Rev. Barrett in connection with the G. A. R., officiating
