Robert Graham expired at the county
alms house yesterday morning, where he
had been taken June 30 last, agfd 71
years. His remaios arrived in the city
on the 1:20 Peoria train this afternoon
and were immediate taken to Chippian
bock cemttery art 1 consigned to their last
restius place. Decessedhad the follow
ing children: Mrs. George Lorton, Mrs.
Al McGuinness, Dayenport, Mrs. Seth M.
Crone, Boston; Charles Gr-.ham, the cel
brated artist of Harper's Weekly and the
late Mrs. George Lamont.
Along in the 60's Robert Graham was a
prominent and respected business man of
the city. In 1853 be was elected to the
council from the Second ward, and later
was favorably mentioned as a candidate
for mayor. He operated two large hard-,
ware establishments, one in Davenport
and the other here. Business reverses
came acd instead of applying himself
with renewed energy, he attempted to
drown his sorrow in drink. The result
was bankruptcy and moral obloquy.
From bad he drifted to worse, until the
charity of the county was alone extended
to him, and as is above recorded on the
80th of Jiist Jnc he was registered as an
inmate of that institution. His children
made repeated attempts to reclaim him
and keep him in comfortable circum
stances, bnt he would not listen to their
vertures. Today four cirri ages followed
the remains to the cemetery.

There is more catarrh ia thi9 section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
