L.W. PRINGLE DROPPED DEAD
L.W. Pringle, a well known resident of Fairfield and Jefferson county
died suddenly Wednesday about ten o'clock. He was just turning at the
Mulenix barber shop at the southwest corner of the square when he was
stricken and was carried inside and physicians called but he had passed away
before they arrived. Heart trouble was the cause of his death.

years of age. He was married to Mattie Harkness and they made their home
upon the farm on the Keokuk-Jefferson county line until ten years ago when
they moved to Fairfield. Later Mr. and Mrs. Pringle were in California for
three years returning to Fairfield last fall.
Mr. Pringle was an old soldier having fought in the Rebellion with the
30th Iowa. He is survived by his wife, who is lying critically ill at her
home and one sister Lylis Hicks of Brighton, as well as the following
children: Myrtle Kendall, Twin Falls, Idaho; Walter Pringle of Ollie; Bryce
Pringle of Brighton and Makla Mitchell of Packwood, Ia.
The time of the funeral has not been set but interment will be at
