H. B. Kirkwood.
Mr. Horace B. Kirkwood died at his home last night at 8:30 o'clock, after an illness of a week. He had just returned from a trip with hsi wife and children to the Sweet Springs, Old Point and his farm, near Jamestown, and was in the best of spirits up to a few days of his death.
Mr. Kirkwood came to Richmond seven years ago. He saw that there was an opening for the popular-price lunch, and started at once in the business on Main Street, near Twelfth. So  popular became his enterprise, that within less than a year, he was compelled to move to larger quarters, next door, and he spent a considerable sum in improvements. His success continued, and in a short while, he opened a popular-price place on Broad Street, near Fourth. His wonderful business continued, a nd it was not long before he found it necessary to open another place near Eighth and Main Streets. Later he took charge of the lunch-room at the Main Street Station, and in the four enterprses he proved a success as a business man.
Kirkwood's name was almost a household word. He was known not only all over the cty, but all over the South. He had conceived a plan of which he intended to open up lunch-rooms in the various cities of the South, and this scheme was about to come to a head.
Horace Kirkwood was charitable to a degree. He was broad-minded and liberal, and scores of persons will grieve his loss.
The funeral will be from the residence, No. 404 East Broad  Street, at 10 o'clock to-morrow morning.
He leaves his wife and two small girls, Anitta and Alice hsi father, Mr. E. C. Kirkwood, and his sister, Miss Ada Kirkwood
