Bert Sackett Dead.
Bert Sackett, a consumptive, died at the home of Mr. Dickinson, where he was being cared for, Thursday morning, October 23, at about 7:45 a.m. Rev. Miller, of the Methodist church, held a brief service at the house and his remains were taken to Norton, Kan., for interment. A.D. Rummell, representing the Odd Fellows' lodge, accompanied the remains and attended to the interment beside his wife and child.
He had been in poor health for about three years, and having no family, and having once resided here, he came to Goodland about three months ago. He was evidently in a decline when he came here and failed rapidly until the end came.
Mr. Sackett was born in Michigan in 1864. He came to Sherman county in July 1885, and took a claim one mile west of town. He was postmaster at Itasca for about a year and was also a notary public in Sherman Center. When Goodland became the county seat and Mr. Spencer was appointed postmaster he worked awhile in the office, instructing the new postmaster in his duties. He was a very pleasant man and a gentleman in every respect.
