The death of Charles Lane of Hume occurred this morning at 8 o'clock at his residence.  Mr. Lane has been ill for the past two years from a complication of diseases.  The immediate cause of his death was heart failure.  The deceased was born in New York sixty three years ago.  He came west with his parents when quite young and settled with them in Whiteside county, Illinois.  He has lived in the vicinity of Hume and Tampico ever since he came west.  He married Susan Wroten from which union there are seven living children.  Besides his wife to mourn the loss of a good father and husband, the living children are Robert, of Coleta, Roy, Grover, Lore, Mrs. Mary Scott, Mrs. Ina Herbon and Mrs. Ida Hollis.  Mr. Lane leaves also a sister, Mrs. Jacob Vandemark, of Rock Falls and two brothers, James who lives in Kansas and the other one resides farther west.  Mr. Lane was a good man and one who made friends.  He thus leaves many behind who will miss him.  He has owned farms in Hume and at the time of his death had one in Kansas.
The funeral will be held Monday at 1 o'clock p.m. at the home.
