J. B. Huston died of the grip and old age Monday night at the residence of his son, Z. T. Huston, in Lincoln township, aged 78 years.

Mr. Huston was an Iowa pioneer, as he settled in Dallas county in the early 50s. He lived in Winterset a few years and some five of six years ago moved to Kansas. His wife died there in Sept. and he came to live with his son.

His body was taken to Des Moines yesterday for burial.

Mr. Huston, father of Taylor Huston and Mrs. Andrew Crawford, died at the home of Taylor Huston in Lincoln township Tuesday morning of heart failure. He was quite an old man and had been suffering with the grip for several days. Tuesday morning he got up and dressed himself and attempted to walk out to a lounge in the sitting room. His legs failed him before he reached up and he was assisted to the couch by his son making the remark that it was all over with him. He died in an hour.

The body was taken to Des Moines for burial and was accompanied from here by several of his old friends who acted as pallbearers. His wife had recently died and was buried at the same place.
