    Paul Kreft
    After a long and painful illness, Paul Kreft died at 3:30 yesterday afternoon at his home in this city, aged 52 years, 2 months and 3 days.

    Mr. Keft (sic) was born in Danizer, Prussia, May 20, 1848, and came to California when 16 years of age, residing there until 1881, when he came to The Dalles, making this his home until the time of his death. In 1878 he was united in marriage with Kate McIntyre in San Francisco. She and six children, Henriette, Bertha, Charles, Edward, Paul and Nellie, survive him, while two children have preceded him to the grave, one daughter having been killed in a runaway accident here four years ago.

    Mr. Kreft was a painter by trade, and for several years conducted a paint store here. For the past years his health has been failing, and a few months since he went to San Francisco, hoping to gain relief, but his malady was incurable, and since his return home he has patiently awaited his final summons. He was an honored member of Mt. Hood camp, W. O. W., and was universally respected by the entire community.

    During his residence in The Dalles Mr. Kreft held a number of official positions, and on the death of Dr. Rhinehart, who was major, he was selected by the council to serve the unexpired term as chief executive of the city.
