Funeral of Dr. E.D. Perkins -- Services Over Remains at 4 o'clock This Afternoon.

The funeral of Dr. Edward D. Perkins, who died yesterday morning, will occur this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Rev. William F. Locke, pastor of the Mount Vernon M.E. Church, will officiate. Burial will be private in Congressional cemetery. The pallbearers will be Drs. Ernest F. King, Harrison Crook, Edward Green, H.A.T. Lemon, S.E. Watkins, and G.R. Lee Cole, fellow members of the District Medical Association.

Dr. Perkins came from Castine, Me., his native city, eleven years ago. His wife died last Saturday of Bright's disease. Dr. Perkins parents reside at Castine; a sister, Mrs. H.S. Soper of Hotchkiss, Colo., and a sister-in-law, Mrs. R.R. Burr of 1010 B street southwest, who is in Providence Hospital, also survive him.

Dr. Perkins was for a time a teacher in the local public schools, and subsequently studied medicine, graduating from Georgetown University in 1895, and soon established himself in practice. He was one of the most popular members of the New Jerusalem Lodge of Masons, Mount Vernon Royal Arch Chapter and of the Woodmen of the World. He married Miss Emma Sheed of this city last September.
Dr. Perkins died of inflammation of the intestines. A consultation, in which Drs. Crook, Braden, Holden and Watkins took part, was held, and it was found that the illness was incurable.
