JOHN E. MOORE PASS
ES AWAY AT THE
From M'pdnesdav's Dally.
Yesterday morning at the
hospital at Lincoln, John E. Moore
passed away after long years of af
fliction, and the body was brought
here this morning on No. 4 for burial.
The funeral was held this afternoon
from the undertaking rooms of M.
Hild, and the body laid to rest in the
Eikenbary cemetery, south of this
city. Mr. Moore was born in the
state of Iowa on October 27, 1954, and
was brought to this county when a
child of 5 years of age. He was from
infancy afflicted with a mental lack
ing that made it necessary for him
to be cared for by his relatives, and
it was with loving care that they
watched over him during the many
ears of his life. Since the death of
the father of the unfortunate man
some thirty years ago he has been
cared for by his brother, W. F.
Moore, and wife at their home near
Murray, and everything possible for
the care and comfort of the stricken
one was given him by the brother and
his wife until his increasing feeble
ness made it necessary to have him
taken to the hospital last October,
where he has been since that time
and until death came to relieve him.
Although a man of CO years of age,
his mind was that of a child and the
care given to him by his relatives was
all that could possibly have been ask

The Place to Buy Lumber.
There never was a season so favor
able for building and making im
provements around your farm home
as this one has been, and the activity
around the Murray lumber yard is an
evidence of this fact. More of all
grades of lumber is being sold this
spring than for many seasons. The
demand for good goods and the fact
that it can always be found at this
lumber yard at the right prices are
the causes for the increased business.
Mr. Kikendall is after the lumber
business of this locality, not only from
the fact that it is due him, but be
cause he is ready and willing to meet
all competition on the numerous
grades of lumber.
