Wm. Proctor


    Wm. Proctor, a colored man who has been in the employ of Messrs. Bonesteel, of the International Hotel, during the past summer, died on Friday morning last, of typhoid fever. The deceased was formerly a resident of Leavenworth, Kansas and came to Yankton about one year ago. He was a sober, industrious citizen, robust and active, and appeared to be able to withstand the conflicts of life until worn out by age; and yet he was stricken down by the fell destroyer in the very hour of his prime. Verily, "in the midst of life we are in death." The funeral was largely attended by our citizens, on Saturday, the 5th inst. The body was buried in the Yankton cemetery.
