Bowring
Pioneer Actor Dies at Brigham City
Henry E. Bowring, one of the pioneer theatrical men and actors of Utah, died at Brigham City Saturday. His death was sudden and unexpected. Mr. Bowring landed in America just half a century ago with but one cent in his pocket. Undaunted by circumstances, he made his way to Iowa City, Ia., and later traveled by foot to Utah. In early days Mr. Bowring built a small theater in Salt Lake City, which was one of the first here.

At one time Mr. Bowring had four wives, all of whom are now dead. He lived in Salt Lake City until 1877, and has since made his home at Brigham City. His funeral will be held at that place at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

Burrell

The young man was robust and hearty, the very picture of health, until attacked last Wednesday with the dread disease. He was 19 years old and had always lived with his parents working for his father in the sawmill. It is needless to say that the family is greatly shocked at his untimely taking away. We extend sincerest sympathy to those bereaved.
