George Cost, a highly respected citizen of this city, died at his home on Clay street last Saturday week from the effects of injuries received several weeks ago by falling from a building upon which he was working.
The deceased was about 48 years old and was quite popular among our people and was a member of the United Brethren of Carpenters and Joiners, which organization attended his funeral the following Monday in a body, the interment taking place at the Odd Fellows’ Cemetery.
He leaves a wife, three children and a large concourse of friends, who have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement.
