"Caleb H. Needles, a member of the Society of Friends, died at his residence, Twelfth and Race streets, yesterday, after a long illness of Bright's disease. He was sixty-four years of age, and succeeded his father in the drug business at the corner of Twelfth and Race streets. His parents were quite prominent in the anti-slavery movement. He took part in the battle of Gettysburg, and at an early age was active in politics. After the war he became an active reformer, and was connected with the old Reform Committee of this city.
