Sad Death of Hon. Cicero Close.

Last Friday news was received here of the death of Hon. Cicero Close, who resides near Washburn. The particulars as near as can be ascertained, are as follows: At about half-past six Friday morning Mr. Close and two of his men went out into the barn-yard to hitch up a team preparatory to hauling a load of hay. After the team had been hitched up and Mr. close had given necessary directions about the work, he started for the house. After a short distance he heard a rumbling sound, and turning around saw his team coming at full speed toward him. He seized both horses by the bridles, and was thrown across the tongue. He held himself in that position for about a rod, when the wagon collided with a leg of a watering trough, and he was thrown violently to the ground, one of the horses striking him on the head, behind one of his ears, and one of the wheels passing over his head and fracturing his skull, death resulting almost instantly. The funeral occurred Sunday, a large concourse of friends and neighbors being present to pay their last tribute to their departed friend. There were one hundred and thirty- two vehicles in the funeral procession. The deceased leaves a wife, four daughters and two sons. He was a good husband, an indulgent father and an excellent neighbor, and his death is a sad blow to all. Mr. Close represented BlackhawkCounty in the tenth and eleventh general assemblies, and again in the fourteenth, and made a fine record there. He was a large and extensive farmer, and has been a director of the state agricultural society, and for many years was an active member and officiial of our county agricultural society. One of his daughters married W.A. Ackley, a well -known conductor on the Rock Island Road.
