      FRANK TIBBETTS DEATH

      Young Man Died of Results of the Extraction of a Tooth. . . .

      Frank Tibbetts, of Pleasant Grove, twenty-eight years of age, passed away at Burlington hospital at 5:10 o'clock yesterday morning. The young man, who was a fine specimen of physical manhood, and had always enjoyed perfect health, fell a victim to blood-poisoning, which followed the extraction of a tooth. The molar was drawn out about ten days ago, and as that did not give the desired relief, and the patient's condition continued to grow worse, he was brought to the local institution last Saturday. Here everything possible was done for him, but the physicians soon discovered that their patient was past human skill.

      Frank Tibbetts was born in Nebraska April 13, 1885, and came to Des Moines county with his parents when a small child. He grew up here, was married here two years ago, and was one of the coming younger farmers of his part of the county. He was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him well. He leaves the parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Tibbetts, of Pleasant Grove township; the widow and the following brothers and sisters: William and Oliver and Miss Nellie Tibbetts, at home, and Mrs. Mattie Hawk, of Martinsburg.

      The funeral will be held from the family home this (Friday) afternoon at 1 o'clock, with services at Pleasant Grove church at 2 o'clock, and interment in Millersburg cemetery, where other members of the family have been laid away.
