He had been ill for some time with heart disease, but the past few weeks was much improved in health and able to take rides in the car. Friday night he was able to accompany his family for a short ride and his death was a severe shock to them.

Private funeral services will be held in the home on Monday afternoon. Interment will be in the family lot in the Erie cemetery.

For the past 48 years D., Dow had practiced medicine in Erie and in Rock Falls. He was graduated from Rush Medical College in Chicago in 1887.
