H. S. STRADLEY HAS PASSED AWAY
-----
For many years He Had Been Employed in Jewelry Stores in This City. Had Useful Life.
-----
Arrangements have been completed for the funeral services which will be held to-morrow afternoon over the remains of the late Henry S. Stradley, a prominent member of and worker in St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal church.

The deceased had been ill for almost five months but during that time bore up well. For several days previous to his death, he had been lying very ill at his home, at 608 West Third street, and it was seen that his end was near. The end came yesterday morning shortly after the midnight hour, at which time he was surrounded by the members of his family.

The deceased was sixty-five years of age, having been born October 23, 1843. He served during the civil war, and at the conclusion of his enlistment, he returned to civil life. He started in the jewelry business in the store of Ziba Ferris, at Fourth and Market streets, and remained there until 1872, when he entered the store of Charles F. Rudolph, where he remained until he was overtaken by his final illness.

The deceased had a host of friends, and during his life time, he was an earnest worker in the church, and particularly he was interested in the temperance question. He was a member of St. John's Commandery, Knights Templar, and it is expected that there will be a delegation from that organization present at the funeral, but the Commandery will take no active part in the services, owing to the desire which had been expressed by the deceased, to the effect that he wished to be buried from the church and that the ceremony be entirely in accordance with the forms of the church. The services will be held tomorrow afternoon, with the Rev. Dr. Charles A. Hill officiating.
