Sudden Death.
Con. Costelow, who last season kept the livery stable opposite the Larrabee House, died at Waukesha on Friday morning. He had been ailing for some time but was able to attend church Sunday before last, and on Monday started for Waukesha to try the mineral spring water. He arrived there but the journey was too much for him and early Friday morning he passed away. The remains were shipped to Oshkosh, where they were met by friends and taken to the residence of his father about two miles from Omro. The funeral was held on Monday forenoon from the Omro Catholic church, after which the body was taken to Poygan for burial. The remains were escorted to their last resting place by a large number of friends and acquaintances.
