Death Vails Son of MUes Blakney
The Union has received word that
Allen Blakney, oldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. Miles Blakney, who are known
to many Princeton people, died at his
home in Fremont, a suburb of Seattle,
on April 4, aged 11 years 10 months.
Death was caused by inflammatory
rheumatism. The boy was stricken
with the malady 14 months ago and
had at times suffered the most excruci
ating pain. Until within a short time
of his death, however, he had been
gradually improving, but the disease
reasserted itself with increased
energy and finally attacked his heart.
On Easter Sunday he was laid to
rest, the funeral services having been
conducted in the Asbury Methodist
church, of which he was a member.
He is survived by his father, mother,
and a younger brother. Miles Blak
ney, his father, is a brother of Mrs.
L. S. Briggs of Princeton and Mrs.
Arthur McFarland of Minneapolis.
Allen Blakney was a bright, manly
boy whom everybody loved, and it is
a pity indeed that his promising
young life was so ruthlessly taken by
the hand of death.
General Fred Grant Dead.
General Fred D. Grant died sudden
ly from heart disease at the Bucking

Grant, and at the time of his death
was commander of the department of
the east. He was with bis father dur
ing a part of the civil war as a mere
spectator, and later, after graduat
ing from West Point, saw some ser
vice while acting as aide-de-camp to
General Sheridan in the western
Indian campaigns. Under President
Harrison's administration he was
minister to Austria and was at one
time a police commissioner in New
York city. He had commanded
brigades in Porto Rico and the
