Mr. Charles Stump, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Stump of Colorado springs, Colo., died Thursday, November 8,1900 at 11 o'clock a.m., after a long illness from consumption. The remains will be brought to this place and interment will take place here or in Prairie Township. Mr. and Mrs. Silas Cundiff reside one and one half miles east of Pine Village, in Adams Township, and had two children, one 3-1/2 years of age and the other one a month. Monday evening between 5 and 6 o'clock, Mrs. C started the fire in the kitchen stove to get supper, using coal oil. The little girl saw the mother build the fire and when the mother was busy in another part of the room, she poured oil on the fire, starting a great flame in an instant which caught her clothes, burning everything but the shoes from the body. Death relieved the terrible suffering of the child between 9 and 10 'clock Monday night. The sympathies of the entire community are with the sorely afflicted parents. (Lola R. Cundiff) Mrs. Honora Belangea-Sloan of this place, after an illness of one week, died at her home last Tuesday, November 6, 1900, of congestion of the brain. Deceased was born in Williamsport, Ind., April 27, 1866, and death was 34 years, 6 months and 9 days of age. The funeral services were held yesterday at the residence on South Monroe Street at 2 o'clock p.m., Rev. J. N. Greene officiating. Interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. Deceased was the eldest daughter of Mr. Hiram McC. Belangea. She leaves one child, a daughter about 9 years of age. Lottie, the daughter if Mr. and Mrs. David Foster of this place, died here Thursday, November 1, 1900, from membranous croup after a sickness of nine days. The funeral was held at the home of deceased on Friday, November 2, 1900, Rev. William Wilmer officiating and interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. Lottie was born July 20, 1892, and at her death was 8 years, 3 months and 1 day of age. Dehart was the attending physician. Frank Gavan, Sr., well known to many of this county, died suddenly Thursday night at his home on Lafayette from heart failure. He had been at this tailoring establishment all day on Thursday and went home in the evening apparently in his usual health. He retired about 9 'clock and died within an hour. He was born in Ireland, but came to the United States when only 16 years of age. He had resided in Lafayette about 40 years and was one of that cities most respected citizens. His wife and four children survive him. He was a devoted member of the Catholic Church, his membership being in St. Mary's Church. The funeral occurred Monday morning at 9:30 o'clock from St. Mary's church. He was 72 years of age. Martin Howry, a young man 19 years of age whose home was at stone Bluff, In Fountain County and who worked in the elevator there, was badly injured last Thursday in attempting to jump on a moving freight. He missed his foot and leg up to the knee was terribly mangled and a wound was received in his side. He was taken to Veedersburg for medical aid and died. He lived with his widowed mother who is very poor. The mother was away from home when her son was hurt. The unfortunate young man is to blame, as he had no business to try to jump on a train while moving. Will the people never learn? Asa. J. Fisher of Danville, Ill., died at his home in that city last Friday from Pneumonia. He was at one time Sheriff of this county and there are many in this county who were well acquainted with him.
