                                                Knobs Men Pass Away Suddenly
                                                    Peter G. Cox Dies Suddenly

   People in the Knobs country were shocked this week to learn of the sudden death of Peter G. Cox last Thursday night.  Mr. Cox died of a paralytic stroke and death came quickly and unexpectedly.
   He was an old timer in this part of the country, having farmed here for the last seventeen years.  He was of a very religious nature and was also very studious.  His many friends regret his passing deeply and extend their sympathy to the bereaved family.
   Rev. Walter Kile of the Knobs congregation officiated at the funeral which was held Tuesday afternoon.  Interment was made in the Bonnievale Cemetery.  The pall bearers were Oscar and Ed Knipper, George Most, Barney Heying, Dan Gunderson and Odin Myhre.

   Mr. Cox was married to Katie L. Houck of St. Charles, Missouri, at Carrolton, Missouri, November 28, 1883.  To this union nine children were born:  Urvin, George and Mrs. Minnie Nichols of Knobs, Montana; Mrs. Martin Tommerdahl of Webster, Montana; Viola and Stephen of Omaha, Nebraska; Mrs. Lewis Anderson and Mrs. George Hood, of Huron, S.D.; and Charles Wesley who died in infancy.  Two brothers and two sisters of Hamilton, Mo. and thirteen grandchildren also survive the  deceased.

                                                            In Memoriam

Peter G. Cox has left us,
Great love we bear him,
Ever hath it pleased him to cherish and uphold truth,
To honor, bless and serve his fellowman.
His faith and fortitude have piloted many lessers,
Serenely through storm and calm,
He hath successfully scaled the difficult passes,
And entered -- in advance.
We shall miss him here;
But shall live better
Because we know him well.
