Obituary of JAMES L. SEARLES
Death of Mr. James L. Searles

Mr. James L. Searles, an old and respected citizen of this city, died suddenly last Sunday evening from the effects of the grip, aged fifty-four years. The deceased had been sick only a day or two, when he was taken with a violent coughing spell, during which it is believed he ruptured a blood vessel, as he died soon afterwards. He leaves a wife and a family of children to mourn his death.
The funeral occurred Monday afternoon at two o’clock. Services were held by Rev. William Richmond, of the Episcopal church, at the residence, after which the body was taken charge of by the Knights of Pythias, and buried by them in the Larned cemetery. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.
