Obituary of GEORGE W. STONE
Death of Geo. W. Stone

Geo. W. Stone of Garfield died at Topeka Sunday. He had been sick for some time from stomach trouble, and after consultation it was decided that he had a tumor and that an operation was the last hope of saving his life. He was taken to Topeka and the operation performed, but he did not rally from the shock.
The funeral was held at the Swedish church in Garfield Wednesday. Mr. Stone was a member of the Methodist church and the pastor, Rev. J. A. Rutan, preached the sermon, but as the Swedish church seats a larger number they kindly offered it for the service.
Geo. W. Stone was one of the early settlers of this county and was a veteran of the civil war, serving in a New York cavalry regiment. A more compete obituary notice will be given later.
