DEATHS:

Indianola-An Old Resident Gone-On Monday H.M. Ashmore died at his residence in Colorado, near Denver, aged 59 years.

He was a resident of this state for sixteen years, and lived during that time in the southwestern portion, and most of the time in Indianola. He was a soldier in the war of the rebellion, during which time his health was so badly undermined by exposure, he had always been a sufferer since, and for years he had been unable to perform any heavy manual labor, but his happy disposition made him many friends. He was elected county judge of this county in 1882 and served two terms. He was honored and respected by all, and but for his disability would undoubtedly been a man of much prominence in state and financial affairs in this part of the state, as he had marked ability in both these lines. His remains were brought to Indianola Wednesday morning, accompanied by his wife, daughter, and many friends and interred in the cemetery here, where several of his children have preceded him. The many friends of both he and his estimable wife were present to show their last sad respects to him whom they had often greeted so friendly while he lived, and offer their sympathy to those to whom he was most dear and who will feel his loss most severely. He leaves a widow and five children, nearly all grown. Judge Ashmore will long be remembered here, where he was well known, and his sorrowing family have the sincere sympathy of many friends all over the west. Friday 1 February 1895

A neighbor who has known her for twenty years, says he never heard her say a crossword but always had a smile and pleasant word for everyone. Her death is deeply felt by everyone in that community.

They had been gone but a short time when they heard the report of a revolver and Bert cry out loudly. The went back to where they had left him and found that he had got out of the hole and was lying in the water by the edge of the river, with blood flowing from a bullet wound under his right eye. His companions carried him to his home in an unconscious condition. A physician was taken out from here who restored him to a semi-conscious state, and labored faithfully with him until the next morning about 6 o'clock, when he died. The young man was 16 years old, and was quite a favorite among his acquaintances. The funeral services were held in the Catholic church here yesterday morning, Rev. Father Hickey, officiating, and his remains interred in the cemetery here. His death was the result of an accident, but just how it occurred no one can tell. The ball entered just under his right eye and must have lodged somewhere in the left side of his head, as that side became paralyzed before death relieved him from his suffering. The grief stricken family have the sincere sympathy of every one in their sorrow. Friday 15 March 1895

She had been quite feeble for many years, and each successive summer left her weaker than before, but up to the time of her last illness, and until one week ago, was in full possession of all her faculties, and the end came without disease or pain. She was tired and went to sleep calmly and peacefully, being simply a giving away of the physical forces. Mrs. Rushworth was born in Brookfield, Maine, December 6th, 1820. She was twice married and had but one child, Wm. Valentine, superintendent of the McCook schools.

Death From Diphtheria-For the past week Vance, the two year old son of R.L. Trowbridge has been suffering from diphtheria. Wednesday afternoon the membrane had formed in the throat to such an extent that death was imminent. Dr. Gage, who had been attending the case, was called when the change was noticed, and realizing fully the condition of the child and that nothing but an operation would save the little ones life, proposed doing a tracheotomy, which consists in opening the wind pipe below the obstruction formed by the diphtheritic membrane and inserting a tube in the opening in the wind pipe through which air is freely admitted into and expelled from the lungs. The parents consented. The urgency of the case demanded immediate action. In the limited time professional assistance could not be secured and the doctor determined to perform the operation without help, which he did. The tracheotomy, was successfully performed, and the child rested quietly Wednesday night, and last night he was getting along nicely, and was in a fair way to recovery, but early this morning he suddenly became worse and died in a very short time.

Fowler, one of the teachers at present in the city schools, from his home in Gerver precinct, that his younger brother, aged about twelve years, had been thrown from a wagon and badly, though not seriously hurt, so it was thought at the time. Mr. Fowler was to have the lantern class in charge that evening and as the message to him conveyed nothing urgent he concluded to wait until the next day. Early next morning he started for home and found his brother, had grown worse and his condition very serious. The little fellow lived but a few hours after his arrival. His father had been repairing a sod building and had taken the box from the wagon and put loose plank on to haul the sod. Before unhitching he started for the field to gather some feed, and to get there he had to cross a pasture the herd galloped toward them and they became frightened and started to run. The little fellow was thrown from the wagon and the wheels passed over him, hurting him internally. A physician was summoned immediately and everything possible done to save him, but when the reaction came, about noon Saturday, death relived him of his suffering.
