Harry Whitcomb, second son of Mr. and Mrs. John R. Whitcomb, .was born in Clinton, Indiana, June 2, 1857; died November 27, 1906, age 49 years, 5 months and 25 days. The cause of his death was due to a complication of stomach, kidney and heart trouble. The attack which ended his life came suddenly and unexpected. He was mu"h improved Monday and felt quite well. He and his sister, May, were making arrangements to spend the winter in lower Calif;'rnia. The funeral services will be held at the Presbyterian church today, (Friday) November 30th at 2 p. m. The remains will be laid to rest in the Riverside cemetery. The deceased i» survived by two sisters, May,, and Mrs. R. M. Pen-treath, and one brother, Benjamin R. One brother, William, preceeded him to the grave. Harry Whitcomb was one of the best known men in Vermillion county. He was a very heavy taxpayer. For many years he was engaged in the coal business and was one of the.first men to develop that industry, which has n)ade Clinton what it is today. He was the organizer of the Fern Hill Coal Co., John White and family spent yesterday at St. Bernice. now known as the Maple Valley Coal Co. He was also engaged in mercantile business in this city. He was a very successful farmer and took great pride in his farm lands. At the early age of 14 he began work for himself on the farm and remained at work and in love with that vocation till death called him away. He was ever of a generous disposition, never holding malice or ill will toward anyone or anything and it was always his aim m life to never do an injury to anyone. Naturally of a quiet disposition he loved his books and papers. He was a great reader and a deep thinker. He was noted for searching out the highest and best in all things, never allowing anything «base or low to enter his heart. He was always generous in his gifts towards institutions of Christianity and charity. On the Sabbath days he attended church twice daily, living the pure life of a Christian. What ho has accumulated in life has been through his great industry his justness and uprightness. By his death our community has lost one of its most useful and best citizens. SAY James Lowden was squeezed through the hips while at work in the mine one day this week. MRS.
