which occurred In St. Louis on Thurs

year the doctor had been sutlering from
a disease of a peculiar character, and at
the time or his death was under the treat
ment or the celebrated Dr. Johnson of
St. Louis, who considered his recovery
certain. A short time ago ho was taken
down with an attack ot malarial fever
and pneumonia, from which ho died us

sion, that of dentist. Dr.

reputation second to no other doctor in
this part or the country, lie had built
up an extensive and lucrative practice, in
Cairo and vicinity, and along and sue
ccssful career seemed to open up belore
him. But all was changed lu a moment
by the relentless hand that sooner or later
will be laid on all animate life. Ho leaves
a wile whose devotion never permitted
her to leave Ids side night or day during
Ids sickness, and who Is now entitled to
our deepest sympathy. Ills remains were
interred in Bethel cemetery near Belle
