It deeply pains us to chronicle the death on Sunday night last, at his late residence in t his city, of Dr. S. S. Buck, one of our oldest and most esteemed citizens, aged 57 years. He was one of the pioneer citizens of this county and was universally esteemed and beloved. In the time that tried men's souls he was a faithful Union soldier, and for the past few years had been receiving a handsome pension. His bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of our entire population. A very appropriate funeral discourse was delivered at his late residence at half past 5 o'clock on Monday evening by Rev. Mr. Rankin, of the Episcopal church, after which his mortal remains were interred in the Coffeyville cemetery. At the time of his death he was a member in good standing of the G. A. R., the Masonic and Knights of Pythias organizations.
