Jules Malige, 89, Summoned By Death

Jules Malige, 89, for 58 years identified with the farming interests of Nez Perce county, and a resident of Lapwai, died at St. Joseph's hospital at 10:15 a.m. yesterday of paralysis. He was stricken 20 days ago and failed to rally.

Mr. Malige was a native of France, born June 23, 1861. He came to the United States in 1893 and located at Juliaetta. The following year he filed on a homestead at the foot of Soldier's canyon and continued his residence there until death. In 1901 he engaged in operating a general store in conjunction with his farming interests but later disposed of the business.

Survivors are two sons, Marcel E. Malige, United States consul at Marseilles, France, and Emile Malige, Portland, who was at the bedside of his father when he died. He also leaves three grandchildren.

The body is at Vassar-Rawls chapel. Funeral arrangements will not be made until his son in France is heard from.
