Eustace Lyon died at the home of his father on Mulberry street very suddenly at 7 o’clock Thursday evening from typhoid fever. His death was wholly unexpected, as he was thought to have been improving for several days prior, but a few hours before death came he became afflicted with bowel trouble and all medical efforts proved futile. He had had the fever only a little over two weeks.

Mr. Lyon was the only son of Andrew Lyon and was 27 years of age. He was a printer and followed his trade very successfully, being an artist in that line of business, and at the time he was taken sick he was in the employ of the James-Shepherd Company at their printing plant on West Pike Street, a position he held with satisfaction to his employers. Among those of that trade he was regarded one of their best and his ability commanded the respect of all. He was a member also of Clarksburg Typographical Union No. 372, in good standing.

The deceased was a jovial, companionable, intelligent young man, enjoying the friendship and esteem of a host of people, who are pained to hear of his sudden demise. He was courteous, kind and sympathetic, ever ready to lend a helping hand and to share his earnings with those in need, and in the printing trade will his memory especially be cherished.

Besides the father and mother four sisters survive. They are: Mrs. Minnie Powell, wife of Dexter G. Powell, of Salem; Mrs. Kleon Pritchard, Miss Jessie Lyon and Miss Beulah Lyon.

The funeral under the auspices of Clarksburg Typographical Union No. 372 from the residence at 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon, and the obsequies conducted by Rev. Robert B. McDanel, of the Baptist Church. Interment at the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
