Charles Elliott Summoned
Chas. Elliott passed away this (Thursday) morning at 3:30 at the J. B. Calderwood home in this city following an illness of long duration with Bright's disease.
Charles had sought relief at Rochester, Minn., and at Iowa City, but the ravages of the disease could not be forestalled beyond his allotted time. Some three weeks ago he was brought from the home farm northeast of town which he had been managing the past few years to the Calderwood home, and Mrs. Elliott, who is a niece of Mrs. Calderwood, has been constantly with him. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Elliott, of Waterloo, have also been here much of the time the past few weeks.
There are left to mourn his death besides his wife and parents a number of sisters and other relatives and a host of sympathizing neighbors and friends.
Funeral services will be held from the J. B. Calderwood home at 2 o'clock next Saturday afternoon and from the First Presbyterian church at 2:30.
Obituary next week.
