(transcription from very dark copy-hard to read)
Daniel S. Hurst, well known citizen of our town and county, died at his home in this city at 11:30, Tuesday night, August 10th, aged 63 years, 5 months, 26 days. Mr. Hurst was well and favorably known throughout this country. He was born in Indiana and grew to manhood in that state. Was elected to and held several important offices in his old home county in his native state. He moved with his family to Oklahoma about ten years ago and has resided on his farm two miles east of this city and in the town of Shattuck ever since. Two years ago he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for state senator from this district and even at that time was scarcely able to make the race. Mr. Hurst was a man well liked, a good citizen, a good neighbor, a good husband, a good father. He was a man of worth and influence in the community and his loss will be felt among the people whom he lived and mingled and transacted business. The funeral services will be held at the Baptist church in this city today at 2 p.m., the Rev. T. A. Butler, of Arnett, officiating, after which the body will be laid to rest in the Odd Fellows cemetery, south of town with the honors of that Fraternity of which order he was been a member for a number of years. The MONITOR has always had the near friendship of Mr. Hurst and deeply sympathizes with the bereft family and the community in the loss of a good man.
