KILLED BY LIGHTNING

Yesterday morning, the remains of G.D. Pittman arrived over the Central
railroad from Wilcox, Arizona, accompanied by the deceased's sister, Miss Lena
Pittman. Mr. Pittman lost his life last Wednesday by a stroke of lightning.
The devoted sister then started on the long and mournful pilmigrage, bringing
the body home to rest in the family burying ground seven miles northeast of
town. The funeral services were conducted at Springfield yesterday afternoon
by Rev. S.L. Dobbs, in the presence of many sympathizing friends.

The unfortunate young man was the son of Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Pittman. He had
entered a tract of land and would have soon secured his deed. His sister had
gone out West to be with him and teach school. The sad tragedy which has so
suddenly overtaken this good family has evoked the sympathy of many friends.
