    The death of Charles H. Gray of Luverne, Minn., which was noted in our columns last week, occurred suddenly and without warning to the family. Mr. Gray was at his farm, which is occupied by a tenant, to make some repairs on a building. While passing through the hog pasture he fell unconscious and died soon after. The following we clip from 'The Rock County Herald' of Luverne:
    'Charles Henry Gray was born on February 11th, 1847, in Oneida county, New York, and when two years old accompanied his parents to Rock county, Wis., where he lived until 1877. In 1875 Mr. Gray was married to Miss Ada Vincent, and to this union was born one son, Clarence, who died a year ago last June. Besides Mrs. Gray the only immediate relatives who survive are two brothers, Chauncey and Frank Gray, of Milton Junction, Wis.
    'Upon leaving Rock county, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Gray settled near Austin, this state, where they remained for six years, and then returned to Milton Junction. They continued to make their home in that vicinity until about seventeen years ago, when they came to this county. The first year of Mr. Gray's residence here he operated the Jay LaDue farm, and the next two years were spent in Magnolia. In 1900 he purchased the LaDue farm which he has since owned, and operated. Following the death of their son Mr. and Mrs. Gray came to Luverne to reside, but Mr. Gray continued to operate his farm.
    'During all of his residence in Rock county Mr. Gray was a very extensive stock raiser and feeder, but a short time ago he decided to retire from active farm work and accordingly leased the place for the coming year. In preparation for this move he had been busily engaged in making extensive repairs and improvements on the farm, and was getting his work in shape to take a well earned rest.
    'The deceased was a good citizen in every sense of the term, and enjoyed to a marked degree the respect and confidence of all who knew him. His untimely death occasions general and deep-felt regret as was clearly shown by the large number of friends and acquaintances who attended the funeral.'
