This morning at 5 o'clock, at the home of his parents, 1206 West Sixth street, occurred the death of Leo RUHL, the third eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred H. RUHL. The cause of his demise was rheumatism of several months duration, although it was but three weeks ago that he was compelled to take to his bed. The lad suffered much, but bore it all with fortitude, and in the acute stages of the malady, which finally reached the heart, he had endeavored to cheer the sorrowing relatives with the hope that restored health would come with the future. He was nineteen years of age and was a bright and promising young man who's death will be long regretted by those near and dear to him. Beside the bereaved parents, he is survived by two brothers and three sisters. The funeral will be announced later.

At his home, 1540 Rockingham road, at 7:30 o'clock yesterday forenoon, occurred the death of George RICHARDSON, a well-known resident of this city, in the seventy-third year of his age. The remains were shipped to Keota, Iowa, today for interment

The funeral of little Ida SPIERS, two years of age and another victim of the dread disease now rampant among childhood, who passed away at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, took place today with interment in the Holy Family cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Simon NEVINS, who reside in the Fulton block on Perry Street are mourning the loss of an infant daughter who passed away after a span of life measured by but one day. The funeral was held yesterday with interment in St. Marguerites cemetery

At the WILSON home, 524 Depot street yesterday, occurred the death of the one year and a half old daughter of the family. Congestion of the lungs was the cause of death. The funeral will be held tomorrow, with interment at Searstown.

Frank HALLER, who died at Durant yesterday, as noted in The Times last evening, was born near Nalie, Prussia, April 13, 1831, and came to the United States in 1849, first living in St. Louis and the following year coming to Scott County. In 1852, he crossed the plains with his brother, Charles to California, being drawn there by the gold excitement then pending. He returned to Davenport in 1859 and this city and Durant, where he lived the past twenty-five years, being engaged in mercantile pursuits and farming, had since been his home. In 1890 he was the main organizer of the Durant Saving Bank and of which institution he was a director from the date of its organization. Later he also organized the Bennett Saving Bank of which bank he has always acted as president. Frank HALLER was a man of fine physique and genial manners and in whatever matter he engaged brought a great deal of vigor and enthusiasm thereto. He was for many years a member of the Durant school board and in all town matters took a prominent part. He also was a leading member of the Durant Turner society. He was married in 1861 to Mary HETZEL of this county, by whom he is survived with eight children - Frank L., a resident of Omaha; Mrs. Jennie WEAVER, Mrs. H.D. SNOHE, Annie, Bertha and Willie of Durant, Mrs. Dr. SCHUMACHER of Rock Island and Harry of Des Moines. He is also survived by four brothers- Charles, Louis, William and Fred of this city and a brother, Otto, a resident of Idaho. The funeral will take place in this city at Oakdale cemetery on Friday
