Pestlar Tsaxg Bisk Clerk Panel Away
ia Plalaaaiptia Efc-piul.
Surroucded by his father and mother,
tbe skilled physic'an wh'i had operated
op'-a him for appendicitis, and tho
sotober-claj nurses who bad tenderly
wu-hed beaide him daring the iat weeks
of his sk-koeNS, George S. Harrio, as
sisuut cashier of the Som&rsat C iuoty
National Bank, breathed his last Friday
afternoon, at a quarter before one o'iock,
iu S Joaepb'a Hoepiul. Philadelphia.
He was conschx's up to sri bit a tew
minutes before bis death, and then ap
parently fell into r, trHlSal sleep from
which be did nit wtfca. Ha knew boars
before that death, was swiftly approaching
; rwt.nM to nis late, vai tne
knowledge that bis parents wete on their
way and would be with him when the
angel of dna'b appeared buoyed op bis
strength aad kept the fliekencg candle
burning until he hid received their last
lov i n g earee-.
Dr. Hare, of tha Jeffj-son Medical Col
lego, wbo had charge of Mr. Harrison
nee his admUisioa to the hospital, was,
prior to Wednesday night, greatly en
eonragsd wih tbe conditioa of his pa
tient and had assured bis parent and
friends tbat he would recover from the
efl cts of the operation. Captain and
Mrs. Hartiu bad spent the preceding
Sunday with their son a, the hipital,
aal when they left him wre eocouragsd
to lx-lieve that be would be with them at
bo.ue in tbe course of a few days.
Wednesday morning tbe experienced
eye of tbe physician detected an unfore
seen complication, and it developed dur
ing tbe curse of tbs day that an abcess
bal f irmed ia tW j-atieau's left side.
Tbe woand was rfipend, when it was
f iuad that the wo'jni was healing prop
erly, but the digaois of the physician,
that pus from an unforeseen source had
eo:iHuuuiratfed with thi seat of the
trouble, was found to be correct. Tbe
itua:i.n at once assumed a very grave
phase and at a late boar that Dtgbt a dis
patch was sent to Captain Harrison in
firming him of tbs changed conditions.
This mesAMge was not received until aftel
business hours Thursday morning. Later
in tbe day other messages, stating that
George was sinking and could not re
cover, were received.
The alarming news ex-ited gre-t inter
est throughout town, and dozens of people
wailed at the telegraph and telephone
o:"5ces, anxious to learn any word tbat
might be received relating to the con
dition of the p-puiar young bank clerk.
Captain and Mrs. Harrison left for
Philadelphia on the evening train Thurs
day and reached tbs b"p'tlal at ail early
hour Friday. Geo-gsi was very weak
when they got there, but immediately
rallied and continued strong for some
time, or until after the excitement caused
by tbe arrival of bis parents had passed
The body reached here Saturday morn
ing. Several hundred people, wha had
collected at the railroad station, followed
tbe hearse to the Harrison residence and
stood with uncovered bead iu a drench
ing rain while the casket was being re
moved into tbi house.
Mi Mi rah Rtss, the betrothed bride
of Mr. Harrison, arrive.! h Friday
noon and went immediately to ibe Har
rison home, where she remained
until after tbe funeral- She is
a daughter of Mr. R obert E. Ross, of
Addison, and her engsgement to Mr.
Uarrisin was to bave beea nsummated
A stream of people passed in and out
of the parlor in which the casket was
placed ail day Saturday and up until tbe
hour of the funeral 3:30 o'clock Sunday
afternoon aa d none of those who looked
for tbe last time on the familiar features
went away unmoved.
Tbefliral tributes sent by the friends
and admirers of the dead bauk clerk
were the handsomest and most profuse
ever seen in Somerset, completely filling
tbe parlor aad requiring a separate car
riage to convey them from the residence
to tbe grave
George S, Harrison was the eldettson
of Captain aad Mrs. Charles J. Harrison.
He was born March 27, l-T.t, aod was
therefore ia his twenty-eighth year. He
was educated in the locai public schools
and shortly after leaving school was giv
en a clerical position in his father's bank
ing house. When the beck was con
verted into a National Bank be was made
aMtatit cashier, a position which he
r.eid continuously up until, the time of
his death. The possessor of excellent
business qualificationsa genial dispo
sition and natural -japtability to tbe
bankicg business be was uniformly pop
ular with all the patrons cf that institu
tion. Ha was a member of the Christian
Church, several secret and beneficial
orders and the East End Fire Company.
In social circles he was one of tbe beet
known and m-t popular young men of
iho'viilag, and no funrlioa held by tbe
set in which he moved was complete
without his presence. I'uif.wmly p-lite
and courteous, and always considerate
for the comfort and pleasure of others, be
endeared himself to tboso wbtcamein
ancial otitic with him.
JJjt, after all that has beea said, per
haps tbe highest tribute that can be paid
to any man is the one cheerfully atti ib
uted to George S. Harrison by those wbo
best knew Lira he was a dutiful son.
The funeral Sunday afiernoou w a tbe
lirge-t sec-n in Somerset in reveut years,

Harrison from all p"inu in the county
you eg men aud men wbo aire fast ap

capitalists, beaded by Husband Bros., of
ML Pleasant, bave purchased a tract of
7,0u0 acres of coal land in Sprinefield
township. Fayette county, and it is an
nounced that they will develop it at
once. The concern wiil operate under tbe
name of the Indian Creek Coal A Rail'
road Company. Oae of the most import
ant projects of the oompany is the build
ing of a railroad from the mouth of In
dian Creek to Bolivar, Westmoreland
county, where cooi.ection will be made
with the main line of the Pennsylvania
Railroad. Tho road will be forty miles
long. The coal underlying their tract
his been thoroughly tasted. The Con
cellsville Courier aays, "the field is of
the same character a the field developed
witbia tbs last six years by tbe Listie
Mining Company, one of the greatest
bituminous producers in tbe State. For
many years the Somerset coal could
hardly be given away. It was bought up
at a modest Sgure and has made money
for its owners, being rated as one of the
best coals on tbe market. As bright a
future is predicted for the mountain field
of Fayette county. Tbe railroad np In
dian Creek will open up f torri lory rich
in much be-idjs coal .'
In this oc-nnection it is not amisa to re
mark tbat nearly all of the coal developed
and now in course of development ia
Southwestern Pennsylvania and West
Virginia seeks to enter the market as
"Listie Coal." As staled by onr Con
neilsville contemporary, the Listie Com
pany "i one of the greatest bitumiuous
producers in tbe State," but ail tbe :oal
marketed as "Listie" is not the genuine
Somerset county Listie product.
A Eici Xaa't Project.
A rich man's statement tbat be intends
to devote almost bis entire fortune to
charitable works has aroused much dis
cussion. Tats is because it wiil accom
plish much good. It is a praiseworthy
endeavor, Kt there are many other
agencies which accomplish as much good.
