At Endicott Ready to Play for a
Dance on the Fourth.
Without a second's warning Wilbur
Hamblen dropped dead on the dance
floor at Endicott Tuesday afternoon at
4 o'clock while preparing to play lor a
dance in the evening. Two brothers and
two or three friends were all that were
present at the time.

went to Endicott on the morning train
planning to play for a dance in the even
ing to be given by Harry |P. Hays. In
the afternoon they and two or three
others were in the pavilion while George
was tuning the piano. Wilbur was ap
parently as well as ever and was danc
ing across the floor alone when without
a moment's notice he fell on his face to
the floor and never breathed again. His
heart had simply stopped beating. Tte
brothers picked up the body and a phy
scian was called. His forehead was
b uined and nose mashed where he struck
the floor, but the physician was satisfied
that the heart stopped beating before
the body struck the floor. Shortly af
terwards the body was brought home in
Mr. Hays' automobile.
The young man is survived by his par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hamblen
and three brothers, George, Ernest and
TiptoD. If he had lived three days
