        Death of Robert Shoemaker
    Robert Shoemaker, aged 43, a former resident of this city and a member of one of Wilkes-Barre's oldest families, died at his home in New York City on Monday morning of pneumonia.
    Mr. Shoemaker was born in this city, the son of the late Robert M. Shoemaker and Jane Patten Shoemaker, pioneer residents of this city. He spent the earlier part of his life here and was graduated from Hillman Academy. Later he attended Andover and concluded his education at Yale, where he took a course in engineering. For a number of years he was one of the leading engineers in the anthracite regions and left this city for New York twelve years ago. In New York he followed engineering and met with marked success.
    He was well known throughout the valley and has many friends who will be grieved to learn of his death. Mr. Shoemaker is survived by his widow, who before marriage was Miss Mollie Blake Jordan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. P. Jordan, of South Franklin street, and two brothers, William P. Shoemaker, of Essex, N. Y., and Alex Shoemaker, of Tunkhannock. The body arrived in this city last night and was taken to the Jordan residence, from where the funeral will be held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Services will be conducted at the residence by Rev. James Farr, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, and Rev. R. V. Lancaster, pastor of Memorial Presbyterian Church. Interment which will be private, will be in Forty Fort Cemetery.
