David Fauber, formerly of this county, died at his home in Chicago last Wednesday. The funeral services occurred from his residence on Saturday. He was a relative of I. m> Tayler of this place and well known in Steuben Township. The death last Saturday of Hon. D. W. Voorhees, Senator for many years from this state, at his home in Washington City from rheumatism of the heart at the age of seventy-six years, removes a most prominent figure both in state and national politics and for many years a Democratic leader. He had been in poor health for the past two years and since his retirement last March when he was succeeded by Senator Fairbanks, he seems to have broken rapidly. His death at this time however was a surprise to his many friends. Mr. Voorhees was first appointed Senator to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Oliver P. Morton in 1877 taking his seat in September, since which time he has continualy filled the office. His history is familiar to almost every old citizen of this and Fountain County especially, where he was raised and has many relatives. His great power as a lawyer and as a senator lay in his magnetism and eloquence. He always put himself upon the defense, and was a noted advocate. The remains will be buried from his Terre Haute home today. The death of Mrs. J. Reed occurred at her home in Cincinnati, Ohio, monday, April 5th of consumption. She was sister of the late Wiliam Bartlett and Thomas Bartlett of this county. Her death will be mourned by a large circle of firends in this and Fountain County.
