MEADVILLE, July 22.—Frank R. Shryock died about 6:45 o'clock, Sunday evening at the cottage on the east side of Conneaut Lake where he and Mrs. Shryock were spending the summer. He had been a sufferer for some months from a trouble that developed cancer of the stomach.

He was a son of James J. Shryock, for many years a prominent citizen and leading business man of Meadville, and a brother of John J. Shryock and Mrs. Emma Merwin, both of Meadville.

He was srill a young man when he took up the matter of commercial electric light plant for Meadville, and organized The Peoples' Electric Light, Heat and Power company, which he managed successfully for several years. He built the city's street railway line and developed the Cambridge Springs line and the line on through to Erie, and also the lines to Conneaut Lake and Linesville. The line to Ponce de Leon Springs was built in connection with the original Meadville line and was a part of Mr. Shryock's work.

When, a few years ago, the electric system passed into the hands of the Northwestern Railway company, Mr. Shryock went to Cleveland, O., where he accepted the management of a deep tilling plow enterprise which he also pushed to success, and in which his business interests were centered when he was taken sick and forced to relinquish his active duties and endeavor, though too late to build up his shattered health.

Mr. Shryock. who was aged 57 years, was married a few years ago to Miss Miriam Rausch of Parkersburg, W.Va., who, with his brother and sister, Mr. Shryock and Mrs. Merwin, were at his bedside when he passed away.
