The following obituary was read at the services:

G. Fred TRIMBLE, son of Geo. W. and Melcena TRIMBLE, was born February 10, 1875, at Bedford, Iowa, and departed this life March 14, 1933, at the home of Mrs. Mary KELLEY near Mount Ayr, Iowa, aged 58 years, one month and four days.

He was married to Alice CLAYTON April 21, 1897. They resided on a farm for three years then moving to Des Moines, Iowa, which retained his residence until his death.

In 1907 he was appointed to the police department, serving in that capacity continuously for almost 23 years. Beginning as a patrolman, he filled almost every position in the department, retiring as assistant chief. Much of the time he served in the secret service department.

He was a member of the United Brethern church, also a member of the Masonic lodge.

He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, four brothers, T. W. TRIMBLE of Bedford, Iowa, Frank TRIMBLE of Mount Ayr, Doss TRIMBLE of Minneapolis, Minn., and Jack TRIMBLE of Compton, Calif.; and one sister, Mrs. Anna STIVING, of Mount Ayr, besides a host of relatives and friends.

CARD OF THANKS.

Mr. Frank TRIMBLE and family.
Mr. Will F. TRIMBLE and family.
Mrs. C. O. STIVING and family.
