The Death of Henry Adams

Henry C. Adams, who has been failing in health all the year, peacefully passed away on Sunday morning, July 5th, of tuberculosis of the bowels. He was taken ill last fall spent a month in Seattle under treatment, but has remained at his mother's home in town since early in the year, hoping to get well, and only giving up at the last. His friends found it hard to realize that his condition was hopeless, and his death came to them as a surprise. The funeral was held at Doyle's hall, a short but impressive address being made by T. P. Fisk, prayer by Rev. J. C. Dorwin, and appropriate hymns by a choir. The pallbearers were young friends and associates. The remains were interred in the Odd Fellows' cemetery, beside those of his father, who died about ten years ago.

Deceased was born in Shelton valley, May 10th 1884, and has spent all his life in Shelton, except for several sea voyages. Since settling down at home to the care of his widowed mother he has given promise of realizing the ambitions justified by his energy and abilities. He was unusually apt and bright, and gave satisfaction in his work for the JOURNAL and postoffice, and at the Bank, both to employers and those whom he served. Death has intervened to cut short this promise, and leave a sorrowing mother, brother and sister to mourn, as well as many friends and a sympathizing public.
