      DEATH OF AN OLD TIME SETTLER   
       
      In the death of Mr. Frank Kristek early Monday morning, there passed from among us one of the early settlers of this section, and a man who was highly regarded by all who knew him.  He was a quiet, good, peaceloving man, and surrounded by every comfort that loving hands could minister unto him he passed unto his Creator.
       
      Mr. Kristek was born in Austria in 1836, and came to this country in 1871, first settling in the Bluff Settlement, in Fayette county, where the greater part of his life was spent.  For the last fifteen to eighteen years, he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. John Janak, near the southeastern city limits.
       
      Mr. Kristek was the father of four children -- George Kristek of the Holman section, Adolf Kristek of Flatonia, Mrs. John Janak of this community, and one child dead.  Mr. Kristek's wife preceded him to the grave some thirty-five years ago.
       
      The remains were laid to rest in St. Michael's Cemetery Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, the funeral services being attended by a large crowd of sympathizing relatives and friends.
       
      Our heartfelt sympathy is extended the bereaved family in their affliction.
