G.H. < $ . Smith Dead G. H. Q. Smith , an old resident and member of the Gr. A. B. , died at his home on the corner of Hall and Cath erine streets yestei day morning about four o'clock. Mr. Smith has lived in Cherry county for the past 17 years and was a well respected citizen. He had been failing considerably of late and though he was about town Tuesday was not feeling well and about three o'clock yesterday morning fired his re volver several times which aroused Mr. Wilbur and his wife just across the street from him who went over im mediately and found Mr. Smith up and dressed but said he was dying and ask ed Mr. Wilbur to put him on .the bed. Dr , Dwyer was called but came too late as Mr. Smith died a few miuutes after Mr. Wilbur c'and his wife came. Heart failure and a choking up of the lungs is the probable cause of his death. Mr. Smith was about 70 years Old. Mrs. Procter of this city is a sister to the deceased and we hear that there was a brother and a s'ster living back east. There was a fire in the room and on the table was ink , pap er , pen and a letter partly written to a sister in Illinois. Funeral today at two o'clock. Educational Department.
