J. W. Brewer died very suddenly at Eustis last Saturday. He was sitting at dinner in Nichols’ restaurant, when it was noticed that he was ill. He was carried out of doors and died before medical aid could be procured. Failure of the heart to act is said to be the cause. He leaves a wife and daughter, who have the sympathy of the community!


John W. Brewer was born at Princeton, Ill., Oct. 17, 1868, being 36 years, 4 months and 24 days old at death. He was married to Flora Willey at Hebron, Nebr., Aug. 19, 1891. His wife, daughter and one sister survive him.


I take this method of thanking my many friends for their great kindness to me in my sad bereavement. May God in his mercy comfort you in your hour of affliction is my earnest prayer.

Mrs. Brewer
