Death of Mr. George IL Timanus Another of the old soldiers has answered, the last roll call-none other than our kind old friend, Mr. George H. Timanus, who died at the Grace hospital, Kansas Monday morning about 4 o'clock. The hods-was brought to Olathe and the funeral service held from the Christian church on Wednesday, at 2, conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. H. Scrivner. Burial was made in the Olathe cemetery. For several weeks Mr. Timanus has been ill and was being cared for by his Wester. Mrs. Lydia Fulton. Two weeks ago it was deemed necessary to take him to the hospital and this was done. Mr. Timanus was born in Noble county, Ohio. September 25, 1846, which made his age 77 years two months and 11 days. At the age of 18 he enlisted as a private In the Civil War, then in progress and valiantly did he uphold the flag until the close of the war. Then in a few years ho came to Kansas, and later to Olathe, where he lived by him-self as ho: was never married. It was fitting that the old soldiers to bawl charge of the services at the grave. There was a good turnout of the Boys in Blue, but at that there were not so many as just a few years ago for their ranks are being diminishing very very fast. Mr. Timanus deserved a large attendance of tho Old Boys, for never did he fail to don his G. A. R. badge, a, sprig of evergreen and march with his comrades to pay his last respects to a deceased comrade. Many Olathians will remember the sorrel horse,"Jim" his constant companion for 28 years. The two were well nigh inseparable. He was really the helpmeet of Mr. Timanus. With glitch loving care as he bestowed on this animal it's no wonder that he was sleek and fat always though he worked hard. And when he had reached that 'age and could no longer eat by reason of bad teeth, then it was that his master, prepared soft food for him. and with his hands fed him a mouth full at a time. After it few weeks of such feeding and the horse continued to go down, lie was chloroformed. Mr. Timanus is survived by three brothers Nathaniel, Fresno. Calif., Elmer, Kansas City, and Will of Olathe. Three sisters survive: Mrs. Lydia E. Fulton, Olathe. Mrs, Annie Sweet, Kansas City, and Mrs. Clara Gordon, Liberal, Mo. There are also many nephews and nieces, and a host of friends who liked and admired him for his square dealing, his cheerful disposition, and his kindly ways.
