Henry Wax is Dead.
Word was received here late last Friday night of the death of Henry Wax, the Grangeville merchant, that evening at the Portland hospital from the effects of rupture, with which he was seized while on the train enroute to Los Angeles. Mr. Wax was one of the pioneer citizens of Idaho county and was well known and esteemed throughout central Idaho. He was engaged in the mercantile business for a number of years at Mt. Idaho, Cottonwood and Grangeville and has made his home at the latter place for the past number of years. He was married to a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Binnard, of Lewiston, and to them was born one son, Monte, who is now a young man grown.
The remains were brought from Portland to Lewiston Monday and were interred there Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock. The funeral services were conducted by the Woodmen of the world lodge and the Jewish service was read.
With the death of Mr. Wax Idaho county loses one of its most prominent and progressive citizens and the sorrowing relatives will have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
