YATES, Benjamin

Bureau of the Evening Times, Frostburg, Feb. 15 - Mr. Benjamin Yates, aged 55 years, a native of this county and a former resident of this place, died Sunday night, Feb. 11, in a hospital at Boston, Mass. His illness dates from Jan. 5th when, while travelling on foot in the vicinity of Boston, he had both his feet frozen. Early last week his condition became so critical that Mr. Isaac Yates, a brother, and Mr. Richard Gunter, a brother-in-law of the suffering man, were summoned to Boston by the hospital physician. When they arrived, they found Mr. Yates bright and cheerful, although he seemed to realize that his end was near. The sufferer expressed gratitude for the kind treatment he had received from the nurses and physicians. The doctors stated that they probably could have saved Mr. Yates' life by amputating both feet, but he would not consent to the operation. The deceased is survived by one brother and three sisters: Mr. Isaac Yates, Mrs. Richard Gunter, Mrs. John Harris and Mrs. Phil Offman, all of Grahamtown. The remains are expected to arrive here today. Funeral will most likely take place Friday.

YOUNG, William M.

Passenger train No 1, last night instantly killed William M. Young father of Rev. Robert Young, for several years assistant secretary of the B&O YMCA, but now pastor of the United Brethren Church at Maysville, W. Va. Mr. Young was a native of Bathgate, Scotland, having come to this country only a short time ago to visit his son and to see the land of "Golden Promise". While here his natural talent for being employed led him to take a position with the contractors, remodelling the Queen City hotel. He worked at this occupation and spent his evenings at the B & O  YMCA where he was a companion to his son then working as assistant secretary and studying for the ministry. Since his son was ordained a minster he has been arranging to return to his old home place, declaring that he would make one more trip across the ocean and that would be for home.
