A SAD DEATH.
David C. Phillips of North Dakota, Died While Visiting His Son In This City.
From Tuesday's Daily.
A sad death surrounded by sad circumstances, occurred last evening at 5:30, when David C. Phillips of Ransom, N.D., passed away from the effects of fever, at the residence of his son, F. O. Phillips, 2301 Crawford avenue. The elder Phillips had been in the city for a visit with the family of his son. Soon after his arrival, he became afflicted with pneumonia. His condition was not regarded as serious until a few days ago when a decided change for the worse was noted.
Mr. Phillips' death was particularly sad, from the fact that members of his family, with the exception of his son, were absent. The remains were prepared for burial by Ellis & Martin and shipped to his late home in North Dakota, on the 12:10 Kansas City train. F. O. Phillips accompanied the body.
