End Comes to Veteran and Jurist at
Excelsior Springs.

Judge Jefferson Brumback, prominently associated with the earlier history of Kansas City, died at Excelsior Springs this morning about 2 o'clock. He had shown a gain of strength within the last week and there were hopes he would recover. His advanced age of 90 years was the balance against him, and a collapse came last night.

Judge Hermann Brumback was notified by telephone of his father's death.

Because of having been on the bench in Ohio, Mr. Brumback was known as Judge Brumback, but he gained the title of general in the civil war, through which he served with distinction.
