Pioneer Passes Away.
A telegram received Wednesday
morning announced the death at Omaha
of Byron L. Robinson, a pioneer resl
dent of North Platto. Several months
ago Mr. Robinson becamo afflicted with
heart trouble, but after being confined
to tho houso for a couple of months,
improved and ho essayed to resume" his
duties as passengor director at the
depot. It was found, however, that he
could not stand tho work, nnd ho re
mained indoor. A week ago, accom
panied by Mrs. Robinson, he went to
Omaha, and from there expected to
go to California to spend the winter.
After reaching Omaha his condition
gradually grew worse and doath en
sued Tuesday evening at six o'clock at
tho Wiso Memorial hospital.
Death came suddenly a fow minutes
after his family, who had been watching
at his bedsido, had left the hospital for
tho ovening meal.
Mr. Robinson was conscious until the
last nnd conversed with those around
him In a cheerful manner.
B. L. Robinson was born in Onon
dago county, New York, February 15,
1849. When a small boy he moved to
Michigan with his parents. A number
of years later during the Civil war he
held a position as government operator
for the Union army in tho south.
In 1871 ho camo to North Platto and
accepted a position as telegraph opera
tor in tho Western Union, a position
which ho held until 1899. On Sept. 2,
1877, ho was married to Miss Alice Tink
ham of Beatrice. To them wore born
two children, a daughter who died in
infancy and a son Guy who is now a
resident of Burlington, la. For four
teen years Mr. Robinson faithfully per
formed his duties as Union Pacific train
director, his courtesy to tho passengers
was alike appreciated by his employers
nnd the traveling public.
On February 8th, 1880, ho was united
with tho Methodist Episcopal church
and for a number of years served on
the official committee. Eighteen years
ago he was appointed superintendent of
the biblo classes and Sunday schools.
Mr. Robinson was a man who was
honostin every business transaction.
Unselfishness was tho principle which
animated him and his charactor, tho
greatest asset of man, was abovo re
proach. The funeral will bo hold from the M.
E. church Sunday afternoon at 2:30
o'clock, Rov. Cram conducting the
To mourn him are left hia sorrowing
