    • Death of Prominent Farmer

      Mr. Allan Fried Succumbs to Typhoid Fever

      We are sorry to report the death of one of our most prominent farmers, Mr. Allan Fried, who died on Wednesday night, after a short illness, in his 57th year. The late Mr. Fried had not been in the best of health lately but still able to be up and around until last Friday night when he took very ill, and when the doctor was summoned he pronounced it typhoid fever. He became delirious the same night and remained so intermittently until death came to his relief. He was married to Rachael Gehman about 31 years ago. To them were born eight children, all of whom survive: Ephriam, Mrs. Wilfred Wanner, Mrs. Melville Veitch, Ralph, Russel, Clayton, Cleo, and Ethel, at home; besides these he leaves to mourn their loss his aged parents, three sisters and one brother. He was a member of the Evangelical Church here and has been a prominent man in this community. He has been a successful exhibitor of cattle and horses at fall fairs for many years. The funeral was held at his late residence on Sunday afternoon, thence to the Evangelical Church for service, thence to the cemetery, and was largely attended. The four sons and two sons-in-law acted as pallbearers. In his death the family loses a kind husband and loving father. The community extends its sincere sympathy to the bereaved widow and family.
