DEATH OF A. H. BLAKE
Old timer in the Valley Passes Away Saturday Evening, Funeral Held Monday
After a lingering illness of several weeks. A. H. Blake passed away last Saturday evening at 11 o'clock, aged 52 years. The cause of death according to Dr. Judah was cirrhosis of the liver. Mr. Blake was engaged in business here with Cas. Mischke for nearly five years, they sold out their business last summer and in August Mr. Blake and his wife left for his old home, Indianapolis and on the way visited relatives at St. Joseph, Mo. He had not been felling in the best of health and was in the hope that a change of climate would be beneficial. He had only been in Missouri a few weeks however until his condition became such he was forced to enter a hospital. There it is said he realized that his death was close at hand and it was his wish that he might spend his remaining days here among friends. While in no condition to travel, hi determination was strong and his one last effort was exerted in making the long trip. After arriving here he gradually became worse and finally lapsed into unconsciousness in which state he remained for several days prior to his death. Mr. Blake or "Dad," as he was called, by his more intimate acquaintances numbered his friends by the hundreds. During his last days he doubtless bore untold agonies, knowing that the end might come at any moment, but thru it all he was patient and cheerful to the last. That his ling sleep which has just begun may be a peaceful one is the wish of his friends.
He lived here four years, coming from Wenatchee where he lived nine years. He is survived by his wife and three sisters and a brother who lives in Missouri. He was a member of the Eagles, which fraternity had charge of the funeral.
