Death of Wm. Strine, Sr.

Our immorality has suffered a loss in the death of Wm. Strine, Sr. which occurred on Tuesday morning last, in the 66th year of his age. About one year ago, Mr. Strine commenced building the present handsome residence of the family on Walnut Street. While engaged in excavating the cellar, he became over-heated and taking a chill, his system received a shock from which it never recovered. From that date until his death with the exception of short period of apparent convalescence, he has been gradually losing strength, his stomach becoming so irritable as to refuse almost every kind of nourishment.

His death, though for some time past not unexpected, is a severe trial to his family and they have the kindly sympathy of all who knew him. Mr. Strine, for many years and to the time of his death, was a consistent member of the M.E. Church and departed this life with a full hope of future bliss. For several years, he held the office of Overseer of the Poor, for this borough and discharged its onerous and unremunerative duties to the entire satisfaction of the public.
