Councilman A. F. Nichols, of the Tenth Ward, died in Chicago yesterday from the effects of a surgical operation. He left with his wife for the East June 11. They went to Manhattan, Kan., where a son, Professor E. R. Nichols, lives. Here Mrs. Nichols remained while Mr. Nichols and his daughter-in-law went to Chicago. The physicians assured Mr. Nichols that the operation would not be dangerous.

Mr. Nichols was born in Essex county, New York, 66 years ago. In early manhood he settled in Clayton county, Iowa, where he engaged in farming. He was president of the Agricultural Association of Clayton county, and was elected supervisor for several times.
