DR. R. G. RIDER DIES.
Suddenly Passes Away at His Home Tuesday Afternoon
Dr. R. G. RIDER, a respected citizen of Mt. Ayr, died suddenly at his home Tuesday afternoon at 1:30. He had been sick only
since Saturday and his condition was not considered critical until Tuesday morning. Inflammation of the bowels, affecting
the heart, was the cause of his death. To his many friends the news of his death was a sudden blow as he was apparently
enjoying his usual good health when last seen on the streets Saturday.
Dr. RIDER had been a resident of Mt. Ayr for 13
years. He came to Mt. Ayr from Beaconsfield where he was engaged in the practice of medicine for four years, and since that
time had been retired from active professional life. He was a gallant defender of his country in the civil war, and was
promoted to be major of the 85th Illinois volunteer regiment. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his death. A
complete obituary will be published next week.
The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed, waiting the arrival
of G. E. RIDER, of Ft. Smith, Ark, and N. L. RIDER of Vinita, I[ndian] T[erritory, Oklahoma], sons of the deceased. They
were expected to arrive last night, and the funeral will probably be held this afternoon. The services at the cemetery will
be in charge of the Masons, of which order the deceased was a member.
