The death of William Dimler, 54 years old, who lived a mile and a half north of Fillmore, occurred at near 4:30 o’clock Sunday afternoon in the Dr. Fletcher Sanitarium in Indianapolis where he had been for about two months.  Heart disease was the immediate cause of his death.  He leaves a widow but no children. The body was brought to his home on the Interurban car at 9 o’clock this morning. The funeral services will be Tuesday afternoon at 1 o’clock at the Christian Church in Fillmore. The services will be conducted by the Rev. EB Scofield of Indianapolis.  Mr. Dimler was perhaps on of the best known farmers in Putnam County.  He was a buyer of wool and each year purchased a large amount of the Putnam County wool.  In this way he gained a large acquaintance with the farmers and people of Putnam County.  A few months ago he was taken critically ill with nervous prostration.  He gradually grew worse and his mind became affected.  About two months ago he was taken to the Indianapolis sanitarium.  An autopsy will be held at the home this afternoon.  Dr. Bert O’Brien of New Winchester will have charge.  He will be assisted by Dr. Zaring of this city and Dr. Miller of Coatsville.  - kbz
