Ransom Banks, aged nineteen, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Banks, had gone to the fair last Thursday with his parents in usual health, which for a long time has been very poor. While sitting near the west end of the ? he suddenly fell forward, and in a few minutes was pronounced by physicians to be beyond recall. Heart trouble had, previous to this time, prostrated him several times, and the end had long been looked for, yet when summons came, it was so sudden that it was a severe shock to family and friends. The remains were laid to rest in the Bethel cemetery Friday afternoon at two o'clock.
