Tbe tolling bells of the City Fire Department, at half past twelve o'clock Sunday afternoon, announced the passing from our midst of the last but one of tbe family of the late William Trow. George E. Trow was born in Madison thirty-eight years ago, and had he lived until May 16, 1900, would have completed his 39th year. He attended the public schools of the city in his early boyhood, and subsequently, in 1875, entered Hanover College, where be remained for two years, going to Andover in 1877. Three years later, in 1880, he went abroad, and became a student in the great Heidelberg University, where he studied chemistry under tbe celebrated Dr. Bunsen. After returning home, he was happily married, Sept. 19, 1883, to Miss Elizabeth Ross, daughter of Jno. H Ross, Esq , who survives him, but they had no children. The health of Dr. Trow, never robust, had been failing for years, and his illness was aggravated, several weeks ago, by tbe effects of an accidental fall, which shattered the cap of his knee and caused him considerable suffering He was predisposed to consumption, and his early demise was doubtless do to the ravages of this fell disease. He was a stockholder and director in the Madison Gas and Electric Light Company, a fireman in good standing, and a stockholder and director in tbe W. Trow Co., the famous flour milling institution founded by his lamented father. The Doctor had also served quite recently as Secretary of tbe Board of Health of the City of Madison. His educational advantages were very great, and he was able to converse with unusual intelligence on the topics of the times. He was raised a gentleman by loving parents who were well to do, and who spared no pains to fit him for a station of honor and usefulness in life. He was possessed of a kind and generous nature which caused all who knew him to like him, and it is doubtful it he had an enemy. There is not one of his acquaintances who may read these lines but will have some word of kindly remembrance for tbe deceased, and of earnest sympathy for the bereaved wife and the venerable and devoted mother. The latter, who is over eighty years ot age, must feel strangely lonesoma now that she is the only one of the once large and happy family left to finish life's journey alone. She has this consolation, however, that she did for her son a mother's part, administering with her own hands to his every want. She realizes that though her lot is a sad one, her interests are confided to the merciful keeping of her Heavenly Father, who will safely lead her through the shadows to endless life and rest. The funeral will take place a t 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. The services will be conducted by Rev. Fuller Swift, pastor of the Vine Street Baptist Church. Mr. Frank L. Powell will be master of ceremonies, and the pall-bearers will be as follows: From tbe Church—Theo. Evans and R. L. Ireland, Jr. From the Mill Joseph R. Matthews and Henry W. Edwards. From Washington Fire Company —Samuel M. Strader and Thomas Graham.
