Word was received a few days ago of the death of George Vogel. He and Mrs. Vogel went back to South Russia, their old home, a little more than two years ago to spend their last years there. Two of the sons, Rhinehard and Conrad Vogel, will leave for Russia, next week. The father had quite a little property in the old country, and they will settle up the estate and bring their mother back to Kansas with them.
