Troy--Fern Elizabeth [Hilton], little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Hilton who are now residents of Moscow, died last Friday [August 3] from an attack of appendicitis. The child seemed to be sick one day, and upon examination it was found that the appendix had broken. Fern was one year, six months and 28 days of age. E.D. and Thos. Weeks and their families went to Moscow to attend the funeral which was held Saturday. The Dunkard minister preached the funeral sermon and the remains were placed at rest in the Moscow cemetery.


Troy--G.E. Taber was in receipt of a telegram Friday night [August 3] containing the sad news of the death of his father, J.W. Taber, which occurred quite suddenly at his home at Manchester, Iowa.


Harvard--William B. Trontner, a farmer living one-half mile west of Harvard, passed away at the Harvard hotel August 4th, after a long illness with cancer of the stomach. Mr. Trontner was born in Kellettsville, Penn., in March, 1860 and came to this locality six years ago and landed near Harvard, where he has since resided. About a year ago he was taken with a violent hemorage, from the effects of which he never recovered, his health from that time steadily failing, and it was a well known fact for several months that there was no hope of recovery, the end came unexpected. The last few days he had seemed somewhat stronger and more cheerful, but at seven o'clock Saturday morning, suddenly and without warning the thread of life was broken and the sick man joined the hosts on the other shore. The funeral services were held at the Harvard school house Sunday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. Arthur Gilliam. The remains were then taken to the Potlatch cemetery, where they were laid to rest. Harvard Grant No. 10, of which Mr. Troutner [sic] was a member, had charge of the services at the grave, where a beautiful Grange ceremony was read. The pallbearers were F.A. Leinhard, Joe Chambers, Eugene Cochran, H.J. Smith, Samuel Leinhard and V.C. Cochrane. Mr. Troutner was a man well liked by all whom he met. The large floral offerings, together with the string of automobiles, which followed the remains to its last resting place showed the high esteem in which he was held.


Princeton--Mrs. H.L. Hawkins received word from Great Falls, Mont., of the death of her nephew, Vernon Brooks, of that place.


Cora--Mrs. Hogan Hansen was taken suddenly insane Friday and the physician who was called ordered her taken to Orofino. It will be remembered that Mrs. Hansen suffered a broken hip last winter, followed by a paralytic stroke, which added to morbid brooding may have led to this latest trouble.
