ROBERT MALONE ANSWERS CALL /
PROMINENT FARMER DIED LAST NIGHT AT LOCAL HOSPITAL FOLLOWING OPERATION /
LEAVES HIS WIFE AND FAMILY
No Arrangements Have Been Made for Funeral -- Was Taken Ill on
Christmas Day -- Removed to Hospital Monday
Robert Malone died at the local hospital Wednesday at 1:30
p.m. from an attack of peritonitis after an illness of only three days.
He was taken sick on Christmas Day and was taken to the hospital on Monday
afternoon. The attending physicians, after a careful examination,
found that the only hope was an operation which was performed by Drs.

a grip that the operation did not do its desired work and Mr. Malone
passed away shortly afterward.
The deceased was well-known throughout the city and
western portion of the county and was respected by all with whom he had
come in contact during the fifty years he had lived in the county.

on the south side of the river for the last twelve years, and has been
held in high <unreadable> Mr. Burns during that entire period.
