W.W. King, of twelve miles west of Spur, died Monday night after a brief illness of appendicitis. During the night his condition became to serious that he was brought to the Nichols Sanitarium for an operation in the hope of saving his life. However, the operation as a last resort was unavailing, death following soon after the operation. His remains were interred Tuesday afternoon at six o'clock in the Spur Cemetery.
Mr. King was a charter member of the Spur Mutual Association, and immediately following his death Secretary C.C. Haile paid a one thousand dollar policy to his family.
W.W. King was a good substantial citizen and his death is a loss to the community. The family has the sympathy of many friends throughout the town and country in this sudden bereavement.
