The coroner was telephoned for early last Sunday morning to come to the residence of Doc Gephart in Prairie Township, where the body of a young man had been found in the barn early in the morning. Coroner W. U. Yeagy immediately answered the summons and the inquest held developed the following points: That the young man's name was Daniel B. Clark, son of the late John Clark of Prairie Township; that he was about 19 years old; that in company with young Gephart he had been to Williamsport and Attica on Saturday previous and that both returned to Doc Gephart's place about three o'clock Sunday morning when young Clark would not go to the house but went to sleep in the barn. Upon going to feed about 6 o'clock Sunday morning, three hours later, young Clark was found dead. That there were no marks of violence upon his person, and that he probably came to his death from the effects of heart disease. The case from above facts, is particularly sad one, the young man's mother being a widow and of the best family relations. The funeral services were held Tuesday. The family of Wm Bales of Pond Grove is greatly afflicted. But revently two children have been buried; having died from fever, while the wife and one child is not expected to live. John Seville died at his home in LIberty Township last Wednesday from typhoid fever. Mr. Seville has been ill for some days, was a son-in-law of Thomas Hamilton, and leaves a wife and small children; Mrs. Seville also being down with fever.
