Isaac Coen, an old and respected citizen of Fountain County died at his home near Newtown last Saturday at 12:30, of lung fever. The funeral services were held from the Newtown Presbyterian Church Monday and interment was made in the Newtown Cemetery. Perry Beck, a prosperous farmer, committed suicide at his home near Crawfordsville. Beck tied a stick to the trigger of a shotgun, pressed upon the stick with his feet discharging the gun and blowing a hole through his body. His clothing became ignited, and when found the body was burned to a crisp. No cause is known for the rash act. Death of William Howland. John Howland of this place recently received a letter from his brother Williams's family, who live at Mifflin, Wisconsin, announcing Williams's death from la grippe, the 7th of February. William was a former resident here, but several years ago moved to Wisconsin with his family, where he has since resided. At the time of his death, William was sixty-six years old, and had always been regarded as being in uncommon good health. He was taken with grippe and only lived a few hours, the disease affecting the nervous system and rendering him unconcious and helpless at once. The funeral services were held Feb. 9th, directed by the Masonic fraternity. Obituary. William M. Woods died Monday morning, February 1st, 1892, aged sixty-eight years and nine months. The circumstances connected with his death are touching and sad. He left Union City one week ago last Sunday night, accompanied by his brother Lewis, to visit their brother Marshall, who, as they had been informed by telegram, was lying at the point of death at Williamsport, Indiana. On arriving at Red Key, he, with his brother went to the hotel to await the early morning train for Williamsport. Feeling very badly in the morning, his brother Lewis went on the train, and the deceased remained at the hotel, his son, Marshall, having been called to his bedside. A physician was called, who pronounced the case very serious, and their tender hands bore the dying man to the home of his daugher, Mrs. Edger. All was done that could be done for him, but without even being able to speak to his friends, he quietly passed away without a struggle at 15 minutes before 7 o'clock. His brother Lewis, having arrived at Williamsport, was startled by a telegram announcing that the brother whose bedside eh had left but a few hours before had died. Marshall Woods died that Monday night at 12 o'clock, and last Thursday at the same hour, the kindred, friends and neighbors of these two brothers were engaged in the same funeral rites, both here and at Williamsport. We have been seeing the genial cheerful face of Mr. Woods on our streets and at his well-known place of business for many days past. We shall see him no more. "The silver cord is loosed"-"the golden bowl is broken." The seemingly strong frame laid low, the voice hushed in the silence of death. How true it is that in the midst of life, we are in death. The deceased was well known, having come to Union City in 1860. He was genial and kind hearted and had no bad habits. We commend this stricken widow, these bereaved daughters and sons, and all these relatives and friends to God and to the word of His grace. Let us bow in humble submission, knowing that the Judge of the whole earth will do right -Union City Eagle, Thursday, Feb. 11, 1892. Our good citizen Charles Moore passed off on Friday night, after a short illness with lung fever. He was a good citizen and a kind father. He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his loss. Interment was made at Battle Ground. Uncle Charles Haywood of West Lebanon, who has been ill for some time, died Tuesday night from asthma. Mr. Haywood was an old resident of the above place and favorably known. Little Beckie, daugher of Charles and Emma Blind, died Wednesday at eight o'clock. The funeral services were held Friday at two o'clock and the remains were interred in the Martindale Cemetery.
