Sad and Sudden Death

This morning Allen S. Underwood, superintendent of H. M. Cool & Co's lumber yard, left home apparently in good health and went to his office.

After being there a short time he stepped out for a moment, and not returning so soon as expected, the office boy went out and found him lying on his back near the office and quite dead. He was taken home and examined by the physicians, who pronounced the cause of his death apoplexy. So far as is known he had never shown any predisposition to it, and though a young man of full habit, his health was excellent and his manner of living perfectly regular and temperate.

Mr. Underwood came here some years since from Glens Falls, N. Y., and had formed many warm friendships in town, He served three years and three months during the war in Co. K, 153d regiment N. Y. Vols., coming out as First Lieutenant. He was a brave and faithful soldier, and exemplified these high qualities on many fields. As a citizen he was quiet, unpretending, honest, industrious, more than ordinarily intelligent, and we think without an enemy. He was a member of the Good Templars, a member of Post Baldy Smith, G.A.R., and a member and officer of Englesby Lodge, F. and A. M. His age was about 35, and he leaves a wife and two small children.

His funeral will take place Wednesday, at 2 o'clock, p. m. at his late residence, on the corner Rugg and Barlow streets, and will be under the auspices of the masonic fraternity.
