HE DIED SUDDENLY
W.H. ANTHONY PASSED AWAY
Was Well-to-Do Farmer of Pleasant
Valley Township--Attributed to
Hemorrhage of the Brain.
W.H. Anthony died last-night at midnight at his home, eight miles west of the city. His death was entierly unexpected, since he had been in his accustomed good health until the time of retiring last night. Mr. Anthony had spent the evening with his brother, Charles Anthony, going to bed between 9 and 10 o'clock, and at midnight when his brother woke up he was dead. His death was ascribed to hemorrhage of the brain, a trouble that has been with him for several years, and because of it his eye sight has failed greatly the past year.
Mr. Anthony was one of the leading citizens of Pleasant Valley township, where he was serving his second term as treasurer of the township. He first came to Kansas twenty-seven years ago, and his sons have made their home here since that time. Before coming to Saline county his home was in Gordon, Pa., where he held a position as division superintendent on the Philadelphia & Reading railroad. Since coming to Kansas he has made his home on the farm. Three sons are now in Pennsylvanina, engaged in railroad business, and one in Omaha, where he is in the employ of a grain house. Two sons, John and Ed Anthony, are living in Saline county, and since the death of his wife two years ago, Mr. Anthony has made his home with his son John.
His brother Charles, who also survives him, is two years his senior, and came to Kansas a year ago, that the two brothers might spend their remaining years together. Mr. Anthony died at the age of seventy years. The sons have been informed of the death of their father, and it is expected that they will be here to attend the funeral, which will probably be held next Tuesday at the farm home.
Mr. Anthony was a member of the G. A. R. and had his membership with the Culver post. In the war of the rebellion he served as a member of the Pennsylvania infantry. He had taken advanced work in Masonry, and at the time of his death held his membership in Ashland, Pa. He was also a member of the English Lutheran church. It is expected that some time today telegrams will be received from the sons in Pennsylvania, after which the time for the funeral can be decided.
