Dr. F. P. Butler Dead

Dr. F. P. Butler died at a hospital in Marshalltown Wednesday morning from an acute affection of the glands in the neck. He went to the hospital from Whitten some days ago. His son underwent an operation for appendicitis in the same hospital recently. The body will remain in the receiving vault for a few days and burial will take place in Grundy Center.

Dr. Butler was about 55 years old. He has been a practicing physician at Whitten for the past twenty years. He came to Grundy Center in 1884 and clerked for some time in a store here. Later he studied medicine in the office of Dr. E. A. Crouse. His wife is a daughter of Mrs. C. Beckman of this city. They have one son.

Dr. Butler was a brother of our mayor, C. E. Butler, and leaves sisters as follows: Miss Agnes Butler of Ackley, who reached here Wednesday; Miss Byrd Butler of Cedar Rapids, who came today; and Mrs. J. H. Blewett of Eugene, Oregon, who will reach Grundy Center on Saturday.

Dr. Frank P. Butler Dies

Former Grundy Citizen Passed Away in Marshalltown

Dr. Frank P. Butler, a former Grundy resident, passed away yesterday morning in the hospital at Marshalltown after an illness of some weeks. Dr. Butler is a brother of Mayor C. E. Butler and Miss Agnes Butler and Mrs. Roxie Plummer. He was in business here for a number of years but moved to Whitten about 20 years ago.

He married a daughter of Mrs. C. Beckman who, with one son, survive him. No funeral arrangements have been made, but it is probable the remains will be placed in a vault until the son, who is ill, gets out of the hospital and the weather is milder. The remains will be buried here.
