The funeral was held this afternoon from the home, the the body was buried in Elmwood cemetery. The Ancient Or- der of United Workmen and the Knights of Pythias joined in takin charge of the services. Mr. Wilson was about 30 years of age. he was the elder son of Mr. and Mrsl V. Wilson and was a Chanute boy, spend- ing most of his life here, securing his education and graduatin from the Cha- nute schools, and when manhood was attained, settling down here to make his home and help build up a business. He was associated with his father in the management of the Chanute Steam Laundry. Mr. Wilson leaves a wife and four children to mourn his death. His wife was Nellie McCaslin, who was a mem- ber of the Chanute High School class of 1892, in which Mr. Wilson graduated. Their four children are all little ones, the oldest being six years of age. The dead man had a large circle of friends, who mourn his early death.
