JAMES O. SALTS FUNERAL TO BE HELD TOMORROW
The funeral services for James O. SALTS, who died yesterday morning at 5:30 o'clock at the Jefferson County hospital after a week's illness with pneumonia, will be held tomorrow morning at ten o'clock from the home at 906 West Depot street in charge of Rev. Kuhns. The remains will then be taken to the Gantz cemetery at Brookville for burial.
Mr. SALTS was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John SALTS and was born in Warren county, Ind., on July 26th, 1866. In February, 1890, he was united in marriage to Miss Ella HOLMES. In the fall of 1898 he moved to Iowa, settling near Brookville. From there the family moved to Richland and several years ago moved to Fairfield, where he has since resided. Besides his sorrowing wife he is survived by the following children: Mrs. Pearl TOMPKINS of Canton, Ill.; Russell, of Moline, Ill.; Ralph, who is in France; and Bryan, Earl, Everett, Forrest, Stanley and Clifford, who are all at home. He also leaves two sisters and two brothers: Miss Rhoda SALTS of Hedrick, Mrs. Ed. PILKINGTON, of Danville, Samuel SALTS of Brookville and Wm. SALTS, of County Line.
Many friends will extend their sympathy to the bereaved wife, who is ill with pneumonia, and to the fatherless children.
