lhe death ot Uharley Tower oc
curred last Tuesday night at the

trouble combined, in a degree with
consumption, neglect of himself
previous to his becoming a county
charge, are the reported cause of
his death. Coroner Wilkins was
among Mr. Tower's old-time friends,
Wednesday, seeing what could be
done in the way of burying the re
mains in a grave other than in the
potter s field. It was arranged to
inter the remains in Crystal Lake

A number of months s go Willis
Scott had the misfortune to cut his
left knee cap slightly. It soon
healed up and ' he paid little at
ten tion to the case. About a month
ago, while painting oa his house he
knelt down and the knee that had
been cut began to pain him severe
ly. It grew rapidly worse and was
so paintui that physicians were
summoned to attend him. Blood
poisoning developed and for a time
it seemed that his life was ieopardiz
ed. lhe trouble spread up his leg
and into his left side. Many times
he was under the lance and for a
period all ' efforts seemed vain.
However, it is now thought that he
is on the road to recovery, although
for many weeks he has been con
fined to his bed, and it is under
rtor? tv.ste-fs still bedfas.
