Mr Gus East died a most horribl
death last Saturday being burn f
to death in a fire place He and his
father lived alone on their farm a
short distance from the city on thef
Buttermilk road Mr East had been
ti
subject to epileptic fits for a great
number of years probably from in
fancy Saturday his father left
home to go to 3 neighbors on busi
ness and left his son sitting up be
fore the fire playing the violin As
the elder East left he asked his son
how he was feeling his son telling
him that he never felt better in his
life The father not was gone more
than half an hour When he return
ed he observed that everything was I
very quiet about the house and sup
posed that his son had either walked
out on the premises or had lain
down and gone to sleep But on
entering the room he was horrified
to find his son burned to death in the
fireplaceLike
Like those in so many farm houses
the fireplace was a very large one
long pieces of wood being used for
fuel The upper portion of the man
was not so badly burned as were his
lower limbs He had fallen into the
fire with his violin and bow in his
hands and from the position of his
arms he must have been standing in
front of the fire playing his violin
of which he was very fond and with
which he had whiled away many a
lonesome hour when his physical con
dition would not permit his being
out on the farm The violin was
burned up
Almost every particle of clothing I
had been burned and the poor man
with the flesh almost entirely burned
fram his lower limbs and arms pre
sented a sickening object to his lov
ing father who had given him such
close attention ever since his moth
ers death
The unfortunate man was in the
33rd year of his age and was unmar
ried He was well liked by his
3j
neighbors and acquaintances and had
their deepest sympathy in his afflic
tion
As soon as possible the father af
ter he had taken the lifeless remains s
of his son from the chimney notified
his nearest neighbors of his sons
death and the body WAS properly
cared for until the arrival of an un
dertaker The remains Were buried
Sunday in the Hamby burying
ground
