Clarence [GREGORY], the four years old son of Mrs. GREGORY, who lives west of town, died Saturday of croup. The funeral was held this morning at 11 o’clock and interment made in Shaffer cemetery.
A surprising death occurred near Leiters Sunday afternoon. Mr. & Mrs. Irvin WALTERS, who lived with Irvin’s father, Robert WALTERS, had helped to entertain a party of friends at Sunday dinner. After the dinner had been served and the party was enjoying a general visit Mrs. Walters went up stairs and was found there about 3 o’clock lying on the bed in a stupor that resulted in death an hour later.
Drs. SLONAKER and OVERMYER were called and found the patient in a stupor similar to that produced by numerous sleep producing drugs. They tried to relieve her by emetics but she slowly sank to death and lived but a short time after they arrived. No bottle was found containing any drug except a bottle of family medicine that could not have produced the death and it is not known what she took or how or where she got it.
Of course it is possible that she might have died from some poison taken accidentally but she had talked to the family of being tired of life and she wrote a letter Sunday morning which has not been found.
Mrs. Walters and her husband had been married but a short time -- about one year -- and so far as known they were happy. Her maiden name was WHITE and her parents moved on the old OVERMYER farm from Vermillion county but soon went back to their old home. Walters and his wife were married in Vermillion county but came back to his parents’ home near Leiters Ford last fall and had lived there since.
Milton MOORE a well known farmer, living three miles east of town, died Saturday night after a long illness from cancer of the liver. He was 62 years old, the eldest son of George MOORE, deceased, and leaves a wife and two sons, Henry and Homer, and two brothers, Frank and Charles.
Deceased was a photographer for many years but went back to the home farm when his father grew old.
The funeral will occur at the family residence Tuesday at 1 o’clock land burial to follow in Odd Fellows cemetery.

The final report in the matter of the estate of Jacob RAILSBACK, deceased, has been filed by Administrator John E. TROUTMAN and shows that the work of that official was one of long and tedious application.

Mrs. Isabelle LOUGH, who had cared for the old man during the last years of life was given $2,632 by the court for her services. Back taxes were paid to the amount of $1,824.34 and various other amounts were paid out until the total amount left for distribution among the heirs was $3,787.95.
The work of finding all the heirs was one that occupied a great
deal of the administrator’s time for about a year and as a result of his
research, eighty-four descendants were placed on the list. The residences of

When sober Grover Blake was a model young man. At such times the neighbors give him credit for being very attentive to his mother, who in all his troubles when arrested and with prison staring him in the face many times had been a true mother to him. But when drinking he almost invariably committed some crime from stealing to forgery to assault. When he murdered his mother he was under indictment on the charge of forgery, and the fact that he had not been sent to prison was because his mother pleaded with the prosecutor to postpone the trial.

When ex-Sheriff Isaac GOOD heard that ex-Postmaster Jonas MYERS had ordered his casket built of solid walnut Isaac at once came to town to see what his old friend’s idea of the right kind of coffin is. He saw the “box” and liked it so much he ordered cabinet maker, Sam WALTERS, to make one for him just like it. And then he hunted Jonas up and made a contract with him that if he (Good) should die before his casket is finished he is to have the casket already finished for Jonas and Jonas is to use the one to be made for Isaac.
This is a remarkable circumstance. Both men are at the four score period of life and both talk a good deal of being ready to die and yet they are as cheerful as ever and seem to enjoy the company of their friends the same as usual. And the pair is remarkable in another respect. In politics they have always been the stubbornest of opponents, while as neighbors and Odd Fellows they are the closest of friends. For years they have stood together on all I.O.O.F. matters and both wear “Fifty years an Odd Fellow” badges.
Myers has carried out the plans for his funeral in detail. He has deposited in his casket full written instructions for his funeral, such as names of pall bearers, songs to be sung, etc., and has the casket locked and the key in the keeping of an undertaker who is to unlock the casket when Jonas dies and carry out the instructions he has written and deposited therein.
But these funerals may not occur for ten years yet. While each of the illustrious old Fulton countyites have an occasional “brush” of grip or something else that threatens to take them away both are sturdy and at this time in very vigorous health considering their old age.

The sad news of the death of John A. NEW, of Green Oak, who
committed suicide at
The body of John A. New, of
The case is one of the worst that has ever been heard of in the city, and as near as can be estimated New had been dead about one week. It was the extreme hot weather what caused the remains to go to pieces and to the condition that they were in when discovered.
The room in which the remains were found was formerly used by the Salvation Army people and it was Captain HINSHAW and Lieutenant EMVOY who made the discovery after they had broken down the door to find the cause of the awful smell that circulated about the hallway and the street below. Investigations by Coroner GOODRICK have not been completed but from the facts received by a Journal reporter it is almost certain that the man came to his death by suicide. He had as much as threatened his own life and it was only a short time ago that he visited his brother, Marshall [NEW], an employe of the L. E. & W. shops and informed him that he carried a small package with him, and that when the time would come he would be of no more use to earth, he would end it all.
It was more than an hour after the decayed remains were found before they were identified as those of Mr. New.
Shortly after Coroner Goodrick
was summoned, word was sent to Marshall New, an employe of the L. E. & W.
shops, and a brother of the dead man. He was greatly excited over the tragic
death, but at the same time acknowledged that it was no more than he expected.
He stated that he was almost sure that the man would take his life, but never
expected to find him in the condition he was found. In telling of his brother
Mr. New stated that he was one of a family of four brothers and one sister. He
was born in 1851 in
He was married twice, and was
divorced from both wives. He was out of money, and so the prospect of having to
go to the poor house confonting him, it is thought drove him to the rash act.
His brothers and sister are:

The terrible accident happened about 10:30 o’clock and only a couple of minutes before Merle REAM, the milkman, who drove down the alley, exchanged remarks with her concerning her work and she replied “I’m trying to get rid of some of the trash.” Mr. Ream had only reached the cross alleys when he was attracted to the Murphy residence by a piercing scream and running to that place he beheld Mrs. Murphy making her way to the house with flames all over her body. Before he could reach the unfortunate woman she sank to the ground. Mr. Ream, with others who had been drawn to the scene by the lady’s screams, succeeded in getting the flames out and removed the sufferer into the house. Medical aid was at once summoned and at the time of going to press the attending physicians hold out a hope for her recovery although she is in a precarious condition.
It is thought the wind must have blown her clothing over the fire unknown to her and before she noticed it had spread to alarming proportions.

Capt. H. C. LONG, of this city, passed away Wednesday evening about 12 o’clock at the ripe old age of 72 years after an illness of nearly a month with heart trouble.
Deceased has been a resident of this city for over sixty years and at one time was a boot and shoe merchant of the city, however retiring from that business years ago.
Captain Long, or “Cap,” as he is called by his comrades, was
born May 31, 1837, in Boone county, Indiana. His father, Elihu LONG, was a
shoe-maker by trade. H. C., after he had arrived at an age when he was capable
of choosing a vocation, followed the footsteps of his father. He attended the
common school until he was ten years of age, when he came with his parents to
While Mr. Long was a very quiet, unassuming man, yet a faithful and efficient workman, there was something of his strong nature which would be shown by a true test. This test was applied while he was soldiering during the late rebellion, and it is but just that we should speak of him more particularly in this connection, for while he was a brave soldier and a faithful servant of his country in need, he drew to him in warmest feelings and friendship all of his fellow soldiers. In September, 1861, he enlisted in the Thirty-sixth Indiana Infantry as a musician. Six months later, he was discharged by order of Gen. Buell and immediately re-enlisted as a private in Company F of Eighty-seventh Indiana Regiment. At the formation of the company, he was chosen Orderly Sergeant. From the beginning his true worth and merits were noted, and he soon passed the successive promotions of Second and First Lieutenant, and in April, 1863, he was appointed Captain of Eighty-seventh and served in this place to the close of the war, taking part in some of the most daring and dangerous campaigns and battles of the rebellion.
Besides a sorrowing wife he leaves a daughter, Mrs. Lewella

No task was ever too difficult for Mr. Snyder to attempt when helping a friend or neighbor. He was a hard working man and had high ideals in education lines, which has been proven by his untiring goal to educate his children although having received only a common education himself.
He was baptized in the Lutheran church when a child and believed in the faith until death.
