Mr. Eltiste has been ill with kidney trouble for several years. Paralysis set in and caused his death.

He was a farmer and stock raiser, and was quite successful. He had other commendable qualities.

Last December he moved for the winter to Tuscan, Arizona, in company with his sister, Mrs. Christina Smith, who tenderly nursed him till the end came. He bore his affliction with great patience.

The remains were shipped to Auburn arriving here Saturday morning and taken to the Fred D. Bohling home northwest of Auburn.
