Taps Sound For Ralph Farrier In California

Ralph Farrier passed away at one o'clock Wednesday moring at the sanitarium at Monrovia, California, a victim of tuberculosis. For nearly three years he had been fighting the disease which it is thought he contracted while in the army. He spent some months at Edgecliff near Spokane, and nearly a year ago went to California where it was hoped the change of climate would benefit him. He failed to rally and the past few weeks grew steadily weaker till it was seen the end was not far off. With him at the time of his death were his mother, Mr. J. I. Farrier, and a sister, Miss Ruby. They started for Ritzville with the body last night. it is expected that they will arrive about Sunday night and the funeral will probably be held Monday or Tuesday.

In his death at the door of manhood there passes one who was splendidly equipped to enter upon life's duties. He was a graduate of the Ritzville high school and later graduated from Washington State College at Pullman in the department of engineering. After college he went back to the Generl Electric Co., works at Schenectady, N. Y., where he was employed until the outbreak of war. He entered the service March 6, 1918, serving in the 13th Service Company,Radio Research Division of the Signal Corps and later the 29th and then in the 3rd Service Company, entering a branch of the service where his special knowledge could be put to use. He was at officers' radio school at Campl Alfred Vail and also Yale University on an army detail when the armistice was signed.

Ralph was born August 28, 1893, in Adams county and until he went away to college spent his life here. He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. James I. Farrier, three brothers, Leonard, Jim and
Ted, and sisters, Mrs. Pearl Proctor and Mrs. Ralph Herring of Montana, and Miss Ruby. Interment will be in the Ritzville cemetery.
