Dr. Franklin Endress Bamberger, of 717 Walnut Street, one of the most widely known physicians in the county, passed away suddenly about 9 o'clock, Monday evening. He appeared to be in his usual state od health during the day and in the afternoon visited his farm in the southern section of the county. In the evening he suffered an attack of stomach gas, a recurrent affliction to which he was subject for some years, and after attending his office patients, retired to his bedroom to seek rest. He was found seated in a chair, dead, shortly afterward by Mrs. Bamberger, who looked for him when some other patients arrived at the office. Dr. John D. Boger, county coroner, ascribed the death to a heart attack superInduced by a stomach condition. Dr. Bamberger passed his 73rd birthday anniversary the day before his death. The decedent was born in South Lebanon township the son of John Endress Bamberger and his wife, Reteisa Holstein Bamberger. He spent his boyhood in his native township, and attended school there. He later took a course at Palatinate College, Myerstown, later known as Albright College. In his early years he followed the vocation of his forebears, that of farming, and also taught school for a number of years. Later he was graduated from Hahnemann College, Philadelphia, in 1902, and the following year began the practice of his profession in this city, following a year of internship at the Children's Homeopathic hospital, at Philadelphia. He talked the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect frequently and thus became popular in the country districts while building up a large clientele in the city as well. His services were in particular demand in obstetrical cases. He was a doctor not only by profession but in sentiment as well and his services were available, to all coming without regard for ability or intention to pay for them. His charity in that regard covered a wider field than was even suspected by others than closest friends and intimates. He regarded his work as a duty and he followed that urge uncomplainingly although it filled his record books with unpaid accounts. He had a lucrative practice too, however, and is said to have accumulated a comfortable fortune. He was a member of the Lebanon County Homeopathic Medical Society the Central Pennsylvania Homoeopathic Medical Society, the Pennsylvania State Homeopathic Medical Society and was a member of the board of directors of the North Side Bank. He wan a member of First Reformed Church, this city for a number of years. He was a medical and physical inspector for the Lebanon Nest of Owls since its organization in this city. He was affiliated with the membership of the Woodmen of America, the Golden Eagles, and Lebanon Lodge, No 121, Independent Order of Odd Fellows. In addition to his wife, the former Maud Smith, who was a school teacher before her marriage, he leaves three sisters and a brother, Mrs. Lorenzo Laudermilch, residing near the old Fair Grounds, on Lebanon Route No. 4; Mrs. Allen M. Wenger, of South Lebanon Township; Mrs. Howard J. Beard, of Waldeck, this county; and Alexander S. Bamberger, of Midway. There are a number of nephews and nieces.
