We have just received the sad news of the death of Calvin Barr, on Monday, at Medix Run, the eldest of the family of A. H. Barr on Huston Hill. From what we can learn he had only been sick since last Friday with appendicitis. Two doctors from Dubois and Dr. McGarrick of Medix Run performed an operation and he never rallied and died before they had finished. He leaves a wife and five children, father, mother, two sisters and one brother to mourn his untimely death. He was a man greatly beloved by everybody and especially his own folks.
