The remains arrived in this city at 4:45 o'clock Monday morning from Boston via the Lake Shore railroad. The body was taken to the residence of Lewis M. lea, No. 502 Wayne street. Mrs. W. G. Myers, mother of the young man and Miss Bessie Brittingham, a sister, accompanied the remains.

Among young and old he was well known and much sorrow is felt at the news of his death. He was cut down just at the dawn of young manhood. Had he lived until the 24th of this month, he would have been 19 years of age.
