Darius M. Smeltzer, 73, who has lived in town several years, and before that was a well known farmer of Green township, died Monday night at 9:15 after a week's illness. He had been suffering with hardening of the arteries.

Darius was the son of Jacob Smeltzer, Elizabeth Farmer.

Mr. Smeltzer lost his wife (Mary E. Brainard, m. 1864) fourteen years ago, and five children survive him--Mrs. Edgar Henshaw and Mrs. Will Harrison of Green township, Mrs. Lewis Grube and Frank H. of Gallipolis, and Mrs. Jerome Wood of Everett, Wash. One brother, Lewis, and a sister, Mrs. John Swigert, reside in Gallipolis; and a brother, H.C., lives in Dighton, Kans.

The funeral will probably be Thursday afternoon, from Lewis Grube's residence, with interment at Mound Hill by Wetherholt. Mr. Smeltzer served in the Union Army during the War.
