John L. Butler, one of Praire's most honored and respected citizens, was buried at Locust Grove Cemetery Tuesday of last week. He was a victim of typhoid and pneumonia. Mr. Butler was born in Pennsylvania in 1860 and in 1883 graduated with high honors from the Ft. Wayne University. After completing his studies he was married to Miss Jessie Crawford, of Tolono, Ill., and settled down to the quiet life of the farm a few miles north of here where he lived until his death. The funeral was preached by Rev. Ross of Lafayette, who was assisted by Rev. Sipes, a college classmate of Mr. Butler's and Rev. Brown, the circuit rider here. Mr. Butler has been a faithful and earnest member of the M. E. Church since he was eighteen years of age. To his wife, who is now dangerously ill and his only son, little Roland, we extend our sympathy in this, their dark hour of bereavement.
