S. M. Harmon a well know business man and resident of this community for many years, died at the University hospital at Iowa City, Saturday morning, April 1st, after a brief illness of less than two weeks. About two weeks ago Mr. Harmon consulted a local dentist in regard to an infected tooth. Infection was discovered which led him to go to the University hospital at Iowa City immediately for an operation. He seemed to be getting along well from the operation when erysipelas developed and his condition grew worse until death was a relief.

Samuel Miles Harmon the son of James and Mary A. Harmon was born in Union township, Louisa county, September 17, 1864. He grew to manhood in this community and July 4, 1888 he was united in marriage to Miss Hattie Arington, who with a son, Lynn, survive to mourn his death. He is also survived by his sisters, Mrs. V. W. Hildebrand,of Mt Vernon, Washington and Mrs. J. T. Carlisle of this place.

At the age of nineteen he engaged in the lumber business in this city with O. P. Wilcox and followed the business here for twenty years. About sixteen years ago he accepted the management of the Hawkeye Lumber Co. yards a Farmington and moved to that city where he remained in charge of the yards for ten years, returning to this city about six years ago. He was a man highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends. Fraternally he was a member of the I. O. O. F. and Masonic orders and served for a number of years on the city council. The body was brought to this city and taken to the family home on West Hill where services were held at three o'clock Monday afternoon conducted by Rev. W. E. Ruston.
