Serious Illness of Dr. Green
Dr. Green complained of feeling unwell the fore part of last week, but did not pay very much attention to it only taking a sweat or something of the kind. Friday, we believe he was taken worse and confined to his bed. He continued to grow worse, and Sunday Dr. Dale of Oshkosh was sent for, and his parents telegraphed for.
Early Monday morning his parents arrived and are now with him. The disease is typhoid fever and is a severe case. This morning he is lying in a stupor, with very little hope of his recovery.

In our village on Friday, Nov. 12th, about noon, of Typhoid Fever, Dr. G. C. Greene. Aged 26 years and one week.
Dr. Greene came to our village from Spring Prairie in March of 1879, and immediately commenced practice. He was a steady, honest hard-working young man, and immediately won the esteem and respect of our citizens, and soon worked up a good practice. We do not know when we have become acquainted with a young man, in whom we placed more confidence, both as a man and a physician, than we did in Dr. Greene.
It seems that the Doctors of our village have been singled out by the grim messenger as his victims, as three have died within about a year and a half. When we look around and count the number of times a man of business has fallen in our midst of late, it but reminds us of the Scriptural injunction, “Be ye therefore ready for in such an hour as ye think not of the Son of man cometh.”
The father, mother, brother and sister, of the deceased were with him at the time of his death and started on the sad journey for home, with the remains on Saturday morning. The Good Templars’ Lodge, of which the Doctor was a worthy, and highly esteemed member, escorted the remains to the depot.
