Paralysis Fatal
To Mr. Burgess.

Mr. Thomas R. Burgess, of near
Dehaves, this county, died at his home
at 3 o'clock Thursday morning after
an illness of but a few hours. He
was 78 years of age.
Mr. Burgess' death was due to pa-
ralysis, this being the third stroke
which proved fatal. He had been
unusually active and healthy during
the past autumn and winter, and his
friends had hopes that he would be
spared for several years; but their
hopes were vain.
The funeral was held at the United
Brethren Church, near Glengary, W.
Va, this morning at his late home at 10
o'clock. The Rev. Mr. Crabill offi-
ciated and interment was made at Mt
Carmel, near Matchless, W. Va.
Besides a widow he is survived by
two sons, William Burgess, of Down-
ington, Pa; Henry Burgess, of Iowa,
and two daughters, Mrs. Sallie Mc-
Donald, of Morgantown, W. Va., and
Mrs. Mary Fletcher, of Ohio. The
deceased was a man of sterling quali-
ties and had many friends.
