  • Notes 
    • Sad news from Long Beach, Cal., announces that Rev. I.B. Kilborne was one of the 37 killed in the terrible acident there. Mr. Kilborne was fatally injured and died not long after the tragic fall on the doomed structure.

      He was 85 years of age and could not recover from the shock and injuries, although a younger man might have lived, despite the hurts. The aged clergyman wiil be remembered by many Iowa friends, especially among the pioneers. He was pastor of the Haddock memorial church at Sioux City 22 years ago, but retired to go to California to live shortly after the new century was born.

      His son and his late daughter-in-law, Dr and Mrs Dr. Jay M Kilborne were former Iowa City folk. The son was graduated here from the college of Homeopathic medicine in 1894 and has practiced since in Sioux City. The deceased daughter-in-law was graduated from the same class. She will be recalled as Adelaide E Cornwall.

      The remains of Mr Kilborne will be brought to Iowa and interment will be made at his old home town, Smithland, Iowa.
