Died at 5 a. m. Sunday, March 31, 1901 at St. John's Hospital, Springfield, Walter Ridgeway, aged 26 years, 9 months, and 30 days.

Mr. Ridgeway was born in Lanesville, but the latter part of his life was spent in the vicinity of Lake Fork station. He recently suffered an attack of appendicitis and was taken to the hospital where an operation was performed for his relief, but he could not rally from the weakness induced by the operation. He is survived by his wife, two daughters Luella and Myrtle Ridgeway, his father D. F. Ridgeway, two brothers Edward and Arthur Ridgeway, and one sister Mrs. Izora Foster, all of Logan County. The remains were brought to Lake Fork Monday morning and the funeral occurred at the Buckles church at 2 p. m., followed by interment in the Carlyle cemetery.
