Yakima, Oct. 30. Elmer Marks,
pioneer Holsteln breeder of the
Takima valley, and known to stock
men of the Northwest, died at his
home in the Ahtairam Friday of an
ailment that has baffled specialists.
After a vain effort to determine the
cause of -his falling health he began to
put his -house in order, preparing for
what seemed to be the inevitable. He
advertised the dispersal of his Holsteln
herd, but was at death's door on the
day, of the sale and lived but six days
after that event
He was born in Uinn county. Oregon,
September 18, 1S70. In 1S71 his father
drove the second wagon across Sno
qualmle pass and took up government
land in the Ahtanum. where the family
home is still located. Marks received
much of his early education from his
father, who was the- first school super
intendent of Yakima county. Later he
took a course in a business college in
When 26, Marks and his brother,
Charles, leased land from their father
and entered the livestock business. In
1910, after his father had retired, Marks
