We are informed that Ed. Holloway and Ed. Lemmon have gone to Salt City to run Baird Bros.’ store in that place. They are bright, active, reliable young men.

Mr. Ed. Lemmon came over from Salt City last week. He will probably remain in Winfield for some time.

Mr. Doud, of the Elk City Times, called on us Saturday. He reports Ed. Lemmon as ill, but recovering. The Times is a neat journal showing good editorial and mechanical work.

DIED. Just as we go to press we learn by a telegram from Independence to A. B. Lemmon, who is here on his way there, that his brother, Ed. R. Lemmon, died this (Wednesday) morning. Ed. was a bright, energetic and talented young man, and was for a time one of the COURIER force. His disease was pulmonary consumption and aggravated by over-exertion. His death is a sad bereavement to his mother, sisters, and brothers, and will be deeply felt in a wide circle of warm friends.
Cowley County Courant, January 12, 1882.
News reached us of the recent death of Ed. Lemmon, at Inde­pendence. We had noticed that he had been lying very sick for some time and now we learn with pain of his death. Ed. resided here for some time and was well known among our young folks, and made many friends who will learn with deep regret that he has ceased to walk among them. The blow will fall very heavy upon his mother, brothers, and sisters, who have before felt the pangs of a broken family circle. [Note: Paper had “Lemon”.]
