    Mr T J Balis gives a few particulars concerning his son's death, Mr. John Balis.

    "Mr. John Balis, when taken ill was aobut 150 miles from home, having gone in performance of his duty as constable to reciover some horses which had been wrongfully hidden away. After a journey of about 100 miles by rail he was compelled to drive across the country, some sixty miles, and taking cold, was attacked by pneumonia. He managed to get back as far as the railroad when his friend, Judge Kent, came for him and took him home to Orleans, reaching there on Thursday, and Mr. Balis died the following Monday morning about 6 o'clock."

    Mr. T. J. Balis reached the place on Wednesday and the funeral services were held on Thursday. As soon as he can settle up both his own and his son's business he will return to Brodhead bringing with him his six orphaned grandchildren. Mr. Balis was a member of the Order of United Workmen, and his children will promptly receive from that association, his insurance of $ 2000.
