    Obituary- McLean, James
    James McLean, 78, was found dead in his room above the Cless Hardware about noon Sunday. From the badly decomposed condition of the body coroner deducted he had been dead since Friday night. L. F. Page found the body and reported to the authorities.

    Mr. McLean lived alone. It appeared he had fallen just as he entered the door of his room, stricken with a heart attack.

    Mr. McLean came to Rossville, first about 1909 or 1910 and conducted a real estate business. Some years later he remarried and moved to Texas, and after some years absence returned to Rossville.

    Of late years he had represented a Missouri Nursery Co. and was a familiar figure about the farming districts as he walked from house to house selling his wares.

    His only known survivors are a daughter, Mrs. H. A. White of Biggsville, Illinois; and Mrs. Evelyn Johnson, of Topeka, who during her girlhood made her home for a time with Mrs. Elma Binns.

    Because of the condition of the body no funeral service was held and the body interred in a Topeka cemetery.
