He was found by his wife sitting in his chair, as thought reading the paper. His wife shook him, thinking he was endeavoring to impress her with the idea that he was asleep, when to her dismay she found he was dead. He was buried with the honors due his rank. Being a member of the Endowment Rank, Knights of Pythias, his widow was entitled to two thousand dollars. This sum she received on Tuesday from the committee, consisting of the Supreme Representative, James Irwin, Deputy Grand Chancellor W. H. Bowlsby, M.D., E.C. Hoyt, president, and James W. Dean, secretary of Section 100. The widow was also presented with a set of handsomely engraved resolutions, expressive of regret at her loss and of the loss of the order. The presentation speech was made by the Deputy Chancellor. By her request the committee have taken it upon themselves to invest the money, so that she will be secure from loss and obtain the most benefit from it. As Mrs. McHarg was left in rather straitened circumstances the money will be of great aid to her.
