On his way home he fell to the ground, but managed to attract the attention of a little girl who was passing and asked her to call his wife. Mrs. REAGAN hastened to the site, but he was dead before she reached him.

Besides the widow, four children, all grown, survive the deceased. he was a man of tireless industry, of correct life, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him.
