Deming, one of the best known and most highly respected men of Johnson county, died at his home in Edinburg at 4:30 Wednesday morning, after an illness of many months, of softening of the brain. The disease has been coming on him gradually for perhaps more than a year but he was not compelled to take to his bed until a few days ago.

He was also a member of the I.O.O.F. of Edinburg, in which order he had held many high offices and was always looked upon as a model Odd Fellow.
He had served as trustee of Blue River township and also as a member of the school board of Edinburg, both of which places he filled to the entire satisfaction of the public.
He leaves a wife, two children, mother and two sisters and a host of friends to mourn their loss.
