Died - at his residence in Winterset, Saturday, May 1, Marcus B. Green, aged 42 years and 11 months.

The deceased was stricken with paralysis or apoplexy last Friday morning, and died the next morning. He leaves a wife and grown-up daughter to mourn his loss.

A large concourse of friends attended his funeral on Sunday afternoon, including the Knights of Pythias and a few of the Workmen, of which orders he was a worthy member.

Mr. Green, though unobtrusive, was a kind neighbor, a good citizen, and an exemplary member of the Presbyterian church.
