The Passing of A Friend
Mr. S. F. Kelly Died Early Friday Morning

“It was with sincere regret that we learned of the death of our warm personal friend, Mr. S. F. Kelly, which occurred at his home in the northern section of our country Friday morning. For several years past he had not been in the best of health and this with his advancing years caused his friends to feel anxious about him. We had known him for many years, and there was one thing that could be said about “Sing” Kelly as he was familiarly known, he was a sincere friend. When he was a friend to any one he never did anything to betray that friendship, and was always fair and straight to any who might oppose him in any way. Our first and most intimate relations with him dates back to 1888, when the writer was chairman of the board of county commissioners and he was elected a member of the board. He proved his friendship for us then, and we ever since regarded him as one of our truest and best friends. We could always place him. He is survived by his wife and several grown children besides a number of other relatives, to whom we extend our sympathies. The remains were laid to rest Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock at the Smyrl burying ground."
