WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1916
Word was recelved In Logansport this morning announcing the death of Edwin H. Tabor, at his home, in North Yakima, Wash. Death comes a sudden shock to his local relatives and cause of death is unknown. Deceased was fifty-one years old and was born in Logansport. About, twenty years ago he went west where he had been engaged in the mining and fruit business, he is survived by three brothers: Cyrus AL Taber of Indianapolis; Graham P. Tabor, who resides in Kansas, and Jesse Taber of this city. One sister, Miss Julie Taber, of this city, also survives. The remains will leave North Yakima some time tonight and is expected to reach Logansport Sunday or Monday, when the funeral arrangements will be announced.

A Missing Boy.
From the Logansport Pharos.
On the 11th of last August Edwin Rock Taber, a lad 14 years of age, five feet high, square build, large, blue eyes, freckled face, uneven teeth, and of a polite and manly bearing, left his father's home in this city. He was afterward seen at Lafayette, Indiana, but before his father could reach there he had taken his departure.
Paul Taber, Esq., the father of the boy, is a worthy and highly respectable citizen of this city. While he and his excellent wife were mourning over the boy who had causelessly strayed from his comfortable home, a still greater affliction was visited upon them. In one week four of their remaining children died of diphtheria, three of whom were buried in one day. It is believed that if the affliction that has fallen upon his fond parents was known to the absent Eddy he would return at once to his home, and it is in that hope that we respectfully ask our exchanges to copy this notice.
