    Death of Dr. Jones.
    After languishing for several months in painful illness. Dr. T. A. Jones died at his home in Toronto Wednesday, Jan. 29. His life had been despaired of for several weeks and the public was not unprepared for the news of his death. Nevertheless his demise was a sad event to all who knew him. During the last three or four days of his life he was unconscious, and never spoke to or recognized any one. The cause of death was dropsy.
    The deceased was born near Gentryville, Ind., April 2, 1843. When the war broke out he enlisted in the 25th Regt. Ind. Inf., and was wounded at Shiloh; and after recovery re-enlisted in the 10 Regt. Ind. Cav., and fought to the end of the war. In 1865 he married Christina Hesson, who, as his widow survives him. Three children as the issue of this union—Charles, Roswell and Thomas—are now living. The deceased came to Kansas in 1875 and settled at Twin Falls, in Greenwood county, but had lived in Toronto for many years. He joined the Methodist church in 1866; was a member of the G. A. R., Masons, A. O. U. W., and M. W. A. and carried life insurance in the later two orders.
    The funeral occurred Thursday at 2 p. m. under the auspices of the Masonic order. Services were held at the Methodist church, with a sermon by Rev. Bascom Robbins, and additional rites were also observed at the grave. Members of all the fraternal societies to which the deceased belonged attended the funeral in a body.
