and Rev. Strauss of Waukomis, con-
docted the services. Special music
was furnished by a male quartet
from the Enid Gospel Team, of which
Mr. Butler was a member. The

Mr. Butler's death occurred Thurs-
day evening at 4 o'clock, following a
short illness and following reports
that be was on the road to recovery.
It was naturally a great shock to the
community. As president of the
Garfield Exchange bank he was rec-
ognized as one of Enid's leading busi-
ness men who held the public confi-
dence to a marked degree. He was
also active in the religious world,
particularly as pertained to the Meth-
odist fellowship, being superinten-
wholly understanding English. He .
was about 50 years old and came to j
Enid a little more than a week ago :
for treatment. Dr. Barnes, special-
ist. was treating him, as was Dr. C.
t>. Cooley. Both doctors had report-
ed him to the sheriff's office as
slightly demented, but he was quiet
and seemed to be able to care for
himself. He was staying at the !
Weins hotel and appeared to have
plenty of money, having told one of j
the doctors that he owned a farm i
near Thomas, and that he had been a
section foreman at Thomas for some j
It was some time after the accident
occured before the man could be iden- '

from the office of Dr. Cooley on j
which his treatments were marked. I
