DEATH AT COUNTY FARM
CHARLES CLARK OF CARTERVILLE, A VICTIM OF TUBERCULOSIS
Charles Clark, 49 years old, died of tuberculosis at the county poor farm yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
He came to the county institution from Carterville about a year ago. Last spring he applied to the county court to be sent to the state tuberculosis sanitarium at Mt. Vernon, Missouri, and his petition was granted, but the management at the sanitarium refused to receive him on account of the advanced state of his ailment.
He was then, at his request supplied with a tent at the poor farm and he slept and lived out in the open air there all summer. He improved a good deal under this arrangement, but yesterday he was suddenly taken with a hemorrhage and died in a few moments.
He has no known relatives.
The funeral was held this morning at 11 o'clock and the interment will be in the cemetery grounds at the county farm.
