Mr McLean’s warehouse has a capacity of 25,000 bushels and the volume of his business necessitates the immediate enlargement of his warehouse.

Mr McLean has put out in the neighborhood of 75,000 sacks the past season, and has shipped 125 cars of wheat.

For several years she had been afflicted with heart trouble and about three years ago was very seriously ill for several weeks at which time the physicians said she would not survive another attack. Since then, however, she had enjoyed reasonably good health, and Saturday and Sunday seemed unusually active and cheerful. Sunday night soon after returning from church, and while preparing to retire for the night, she suddenly fell to the floor unconscious. Dr Turney, who had attended her in her previous illness, was hastily summoned and did all he could for her relief, but she never again fully recovered consciousness. Once or twice she rallied slightly but it was only temporarily and Tuesday evening she breathed her last.  Mr & Mrs McLellan came to this county in 1889, and after a short residence on a farm moved to town where they had resided ever since, Mr McLellan engaging in the general merchandise business with A L Smalley. Mrs McLellan was much esteemed by all who knew her. She was a kind neighbor and devoted wife whose death will be a sad blow to the bereaved husband. She was a member of the Presbyterian church, and had always taken an active part in church work as far as her health would permit.
