Death of J. P. Worrell

Captain J. P. Worrell died at his home in this city some time Sunday morning, from heart trouble. The day before he had seemed as well as usual and retired as usual Saturday night.

Mrs. Worrell noticed that he seemed restless during the earlier part of the night but thought nothing of it. In the morning he lay quiet as if asleep, and upon closer view it was seen that he had passed away. He had fallen asleep never to waken. He had been subject to heart trouble for some time and had been in poor health.

Captain Worrell was one of the pioneers of Pawnee county, coming to Larned in 1873. He was a lawyer in the early days and was prominent in the affairs of the town. He is well known throughout the county.

He was 73 years of age and had he lived two more days would have celebrated his fifty-third wedding anniversary. He was a veteran of the Civil war and an active member of the G.A.R. A more complete obituary will be printed next week.

The funeral was held this afternoon from the house and services were under the direction of the G.A.R. The funeral was delayed until the arrival of the oldest daughter, Mrs. Belle Worrell Ball, who arrived from Washington Wednesday night. Of the other children, Geo. Worrell and Mrs. Myrtle Buckles live in Larned, and one daughter in Alaska.
