WILLIAM DOUGLAS DIED AT HOSPITAL YESTERDAY .

William DOUGLAS of this city died at the Missouri Hospital at St. Joseph [MO] on Sunday morning [August 3, 1924] at 4:40. His death was quite a shock to his many friends and his relatives. The body was brought to Bedford Sunday evening, and the funeral will be held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. T.[homas] E. [Myrtle] OWINGS, at 2:00 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Rev. PRICE of the Christian church, assisted by Rev. FLETCHER of the Baptist church, in charge.

He passed his 63rd birthday on June 20th. He had been in poor health for a number of years, and was taken to the hospital on July 26. He was operated on for appendicitis and was apparently recovering nicely, but late Saturday night his condition changed for the worse and he passed away the next morning. Burial will be made in the Bedford [Rose Hill] Cemetery.

Obituary will be published later.

Funeral of William Douglas Was Tuesday.

The funeral services of William H. DOUGLAS, who died at the St. Joseph hospital Sunday morning [August 3, 1924], were held Tuesday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Elza [Myrtle] OWINGS of this city. Services were conducted by Rev. PRICE of this city. The following obituary was read:

William H. DOUGLAS was the eldest son of Henry W. and Betsy [(GLOVER)] DOUGLAS who are both deceased, also two brothers Jesse B. and Jasper A.

He was born in Courtland County, New York, June 20, 1861, and with his parents and sister, moved to Ringgold county, Iowa, at the age of eight years, where he grew to manhood.

He was married to Miss Huldah FITCH of Taylor County, December 23, 1883. To this union were born seven children, four boys and three girls: Oscar E., John O., Orville W. and Melvin C., Mrs. Myrtle OWINGS and Mrs. Ida KEMPLE and Bernice B. DOUGLAS, all of whom are living in Bedford.

The deceased leaves a loving wife, one brother, C[larence]. C[harles]. DOUGLAS and family, one sister, Mrs. Ida M. MERRYMAN of Oskaloosa, Iowa, and other relatives to mourn their loss.

The deceased was not seriously sick as supposed until in the last two weeks when Tumerous Appendicitis developed and after an operation in the Methodist Hospital in St. Joseph, Mo., he passed peacefully away, Sunday morning, August 3, 1924, at 4:40 A. M.

In 1892 in a revival meeting conducted by Rev. MARTIN, Evangelist of the Christian church, the deceased was converted and baptized and joined the church in Bedford, Ia., and remained a member until death.

The deceased was 63 years, one month and thirteen days old.

"A loved on from our home is taken
A voice we loved is stilled.
A father's fellowship is broken,
Which Christ alone can heal."
