OBITUARY NOTICES OF LUKE P. GILLEM: Gillem, L. P.: L. P. Gillem, Sr. -- Accidentally Killed by a Falling Tree. Bloomington. Jan. 30. -- This community was shocked today by receipt of the news that L. P. Gillem, Sr., living near here, had been killed by a tree falling on him. Mr. Gillem was in the woods cutting down a tree which in some unaccountable manner fell on him. Death resulted almost instantly. Mr. Gillem was a thorough gentleman and has been a prominent citizen wherever he has lived. He was about 65 years of age and leaves a large family--most of whom are grown. Several of his boys are in the army in Manila. Only two or three of the smaller children remain with Mr. Gillem.
