Reuben Kingery, an old resident of Monroe township died on Monday of last week of kidney disease. Mr. Kingery was one of the large party that emigrated from this county to Washington several weeks ago. He went in the hope that his health might be benefited by a change of climate but grew worse instead of better and had barely enough strength to reach his hold home before the end came as he arrived Sunday evening and passed away on the following day. He was upwards of 60 years of age.

Reuben Kingery, who went to the west a few weeks ago with the party of Idaho excursionists, returned to his home near Kasson on Monday of last week and died the following day.

While in Washington with relatives he was caught in the high water on a farm and was compelled to stay there over a week. There was nothing to drink but the river water. He contracted a cold while there and when he arrived in Lorimor he was unable to go home without assistance.

He was quite well to do and was one of the oldest and best known citizens of Monroe township.
