While Mr. King had been in ill health for several years he was able to attend to his own business. Just what caused his death is unknown as the telegram received simply announced his death. D. Ward King was known all over the world as the inventor of the split-log drag. He invented the drag and gave it to all persons for the improvement of the roads. Letters were received by Mr. King from persons in different countries complimenting him upon his method of road treatment. Several years ago Mr. King directed the improvement of the roads across the state of Iowa in one day. The improvement was from Omaha to the Mississippi river. Mr. King left his home at Maitland, Missouri, Saturday and was in St. Louis to attend a meeting of the directors of the Farmers Federal Loan Bank, of which he was an officer, when he was taken suddenly ill. Mr. King was born in Springfield, Ohio, October 27, 1857. He was a son of the late R. Q. King. His education was obtained in the Public Schools here and in Wittenberg College.
