James Stewart and family arrived here Monday on No. 4 with the remains of his daughter Alice, who died in California May 26th*.
It will be remembered by many people that he sold his farm and property at Clearspring six or seven months ago and went to the Pacific slope in the hopes of bettering the health of his family, but that dreaded disease - the white plague** - had fastened upon her vitals and claimed its victim.
Mr. Stewart at once sent a message to Perry Branaman here that they would bring her here for burial.
The funeral services took place at Pleasant Ridge (Wray's) church Tuesday afternoon. The afflicted family has the sympathy of this entire community.
* Date in California Death Index is 25th
**white plauge - tuberculosis of the lungs
