      ________________


      Death of Mr. Henry Hagey, of Preston - This worthy resident of Preston, one of its oldest and most honored citizens, died very suddenly on Wednesday afternoon last. Mr. Hagey has been afflicted with heart disease for some years, more a disease incidental to his age than acute, and with the care which he was enabled to take of himself, it was not thought his ailment would prove fatal. However, last Wednesday morning he appeared as well as usual, and went for a walk, returning in time for dinner. During the afternoon, his friend, Mr. Ambrose Winter paid him a visit and they had a pleasant conversation for some little time, Mr. Hagey seeming as well and cheerful as usual. Shortly after Mr. Maurice Hagey, hearing a noise, entered Mr. Hagey's room, when he was shocked to find his grandfather lying on the floor quite dead. Mr. Hagey was born in Preston, March 2nd, 1823, his whole life having been spent in or in the immediate vicinity of the village. He was by trade a blacksmith, and carried on business for some years in the shop now occupied by Kay Bros., at the east end of the village. He retired from that business and carried on farming until about ten years ago, when he again became a resident of his native village. Municipally he served his village as Reeve for several years. His family consisted of five children, viz.: - Mr. Isaac Hagey, of Preston; Mr. Jonas Hagey, of Davenport, Iowa; Mrs. M. Bricker, of Berlin; Mrs. Jacob Slichter, of Blenheim; and Mrs. W. Clemens, of Blair. The funeral on Saturday afternoon was very largely attended.
