Scores of friends in Whiteside county are grieved over the news of the death of J. Robert Lane, until nine years ago, one of the prominent farmers in this county, and popular in various fraternal organizations. His death occurred at 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon at Rochester, Minn., where he had gone for treatment ten days before, from his home in Traverse county, Minn.

Mr. Lane was 48 years old and was born in Hume township. He was married to Miss Ella Gaulrapp of Hume and they made their home in the township where he was a prominent farmer, until nine years ago, when they moved to Tintah, Minn., where he continued in the same occupation. About a year ago he underwent a serious operation, which apparently was successful, but recently complications developed which finally resulted in his death. He is survived by his widow, two brothers, C. L. Lane and G. C. Lane, both of Montmorency, and three sisters, Mrs. Bert Scott of Hume, Mrs Charles Herbon (rest of page unreadable).
