Death of Ben Anderson

Had Expired Some Hours Before Found at Bachelor Home.

Ben Anderson, a bachelor, aged about 50 years, was found dead last evening at his home place on Blanchard Heights, near the orchard gates, by relatives who had come to look after him. He had suffered from paralysis for some years but had been seen yesterday morning when he seemed about as usual. Mr. Anderson lived alone, and had been dead six or seven hours when discovered. He came to this section about eleven years ago from Missouri, and has followed farming and carpentering.

Mr. Anderson leaves several half brothers and half sisters. They are Thomas Blythe, with the Gerry-Gordon company, and Mrs. R. R. Pubb of Lewiston; Mrs. J. S. McDonald and Mrs. John Lockridge of Vollmer, and Mrs. W. A. Myers of Aberdeen, Wn.

The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon, from Vassar's parlors.
