LotIbc Expectation of the Re tar a of Soa and Brother Blasted With Bitter News of His Loss? Mrs. Edd y Saved From Ending Her Own Life bj Vio lence. Marietta, O., Aug. 29. ? In ihe little home at Yankeeburg, a few miles east of Marietta, are three be reaved women with their reason dethroned. At Reno, not far away, is another who mourns the man who was soon to take her for better or worse. The death of only one of Uncle Sam's soldier boys hes wrought this havoc, and his body now sleeps in its last resting place in the bed of the sea, between Santiago and Montauk Point. His name was Okey P. Eddy, and the three un fortunates, whom his death has so fearfully deranged, are his mother and two sisters, Bertha and Vesta. The fourth is his financee, Miss Linda Cook. SAD TIDINGS CAUSED INSANITY. When the sad news of young Eddy's death on the Mohawk and his burial at sea reached the Eddy cottage at Yankeeburg yesterday, it caused a heartrending scene, and the men who bore the sad tidings collapsed through sympathy with the grief stricken women. The family consists of the boy's mother, Hannah Eddy, widow of the late Simon Eddy, and his four sisters. Okey was the only son and brother. As the intelligence of his untimely end broke upon their minds, the mother and the two sis ters named immediately lapsed into a hysterical state, which grew rap idly worse until last evening when all three had reached a condition of violent insanity. Mrs. Eddy is in a most pitiable condition, and lime and again at tempted to take her own life. She was saved only by the interference of neighbors, who have not left her for a minor ? since she first received the news. It was found necessary to tie her ? .nds in order to prevent her doing bodily harm to herself, and she re? iained in that condition all night. She is 55 years ot age, and a mos* estimable woman, as are all her daughters, whose condition is little les> serious. The en' i'e community isrxpress ibly shocked o\ " the pitiful situa tion, and svrapai'iy for the unfor tunate i^ mi bounded. Your ^ Okey was only 21 years of ag' . ? nd was the idol of bis home. About two weeks before the break ing out of the war be went to East Liverpool to work. HIS COUNTRY CALLED HIM. At that time he was possiised of the martial spirit and his mother begged of him to put away the idea of enlisting. Her pleadings were in vain, however, as he joined company E, of the Eighth Ohio and marched away to his doom. The first news of his enlistment reached his mother in a letter which he wrote her from Santiago, saying he was well. When he wrote that he was com ing back there was a joy in the Eddy home, but it was changed in the twinkling of an eye to the deep est sorrow. The horrible story that the young man starved to death added to the intensity of his fam ily's grief and has aroused immeas urable indignation throughout the city and county. The boy was very popular among his acquaintances and the shock of ' his death with the realization that even his body cannot be brought back, is a heavy blow to all. There is a possibility that his sisters will recover their mental balance in time, but the mother is in such a state that there is no hope for her. ? % i When wear begins to exceed re pair in your body you are going to fall sick.
