DIED.--FRANK HOBBS; at Evingston,
Wyoming Tr., on Monday, August 8,
1881. Age, 22 years.
- The death of Frank Hobs, under the
existing circumstances, is one that brings
untold sorrow and affliction to both relatives
and friends. The sudden announcement fell
upon the community as falls the cadence of
a plaint in the midst of swelling paeans.
The sad particulars are as follows: While
traveling in Wyoming Territory, he left the
train, and upon again boarding it, his foot
slipped on the steps, which were wet by rain,
and he fell beneath the iron wheels and
was crushed to an instant death. This was
at the town of Evingston, in the month of
August, 1881, and the sad news of the terri-
ble event reached the bereaved parents and
relatives but a week or so ago.
Poor Frank, thus cut off in the flower of
his manhood from a useful, and perhaps,
brilliant life--but, alas, words are frail and
inadequate to the occasion. The grief-
stricken parents have our deepest sympathy
and that of the community at large; but as
'tis unavailing to offer consolation to an a
affliction like this, we can only commend
them to Him "who doeth all things well."
