Dr. D. K. SMITH, brother of Councilman J. B. SMITH, died at
Colorado Springs at eleven o'clock Wednesday nigh. Dr. SMITH was a member
of the hospital staff at Altoona, Pa., for a number of years. His health
having failed him, he went to Colorado some time ago, but the change did not
bring about the improvement sought. He was a classmate of Dr. W. L. SCOTT
and his wife is a sister of the wife of Rev. CONNORS of Venice.

Miss Alice MILLER, daughter of John H. MILLER of Mt. Pleasant
township, died at her home Tuesday evening, March 13. Miss MILLER spent
several years as a mission teacher in the Mary Allen Seminary in the South,
returning home about three years ago in broken health. Her mother died just
two weeks ago since which time Miss Alice has rapidly declined. She is
survived by her father, two brothers, and two sisters: Prof. MILLER of W. &
J. College, Edwin and Catherine at home, and Mrs. John WHITE of Mt. Pleasant
township. Funeral services were held Friday at 1:30 o'clock.

Mr. and Mrs. W. T. REED were at New Wilmington Sunday attending
the funeral of Mrs. REED's niece, Miss Anna MILLER, of Greenfield, Pa.

Frank DILLER, a well known young man of McDonald, was taken to
the Mercy Hospital, Pittsburg, Monday afternoon to undergo an operation for
appendicitis. He was already in a greatly weakened condition and the
chances were largely against him. The operation on Monday evening was
apparently successful, but he died on Wednesday morning. He was born in
Buffalo, N. Y., December 1, 1888. At the age of seven his mother died and
he came to McDonald to live with his aunt, Mrs. J. C. MULDOON. He has lived
here most of the time since. His father resides in Buffalo. Frank was of a
most cheerful and generous disposition and was much liked by a large circle
of young friends who deeply mourn his loss. He appeared to have little hope
of recovery when he was taken away and remarked to friends who were trying
to cheer him that he would probably not come back alive. The funeral was
held this (Saturday) morning with High Mass of Requiem at St. Alphonsus'
church. Interment at Noblestown.

Mr. and Mrs. Samuel WILLISON and sons, Roy and Joseph, of
Oklahoma, former residents of this vicinity, are here at present, called
home on account of the death of their daughter and sister, Mrs. Della
BORCHERT, whose death occurred last Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. WILLISON will
remain with friends for two weeks before they return to their Western home.
