The remains of B. B. were brought here Wednesday from Bismark, N. D., for burial. Mr. Bothum had been ill since March 6th, 1912 when he had a stroke and for months lingered along and was not expected to live. About 18 months ago he went to Bismark to make his home with his daughter Mrs. Hoiem. About a month ago they wrote that they would come to Lyle March 15th for a visit, little realizing that on that day, he would be here for burial. Mr. Bothum was past 86 years of age and lived in this community for many years.
