John E. Little, an old time citizen of this county, died Tuesday morning at Little's mines, where he had been making his home for several months past, aged 74 years. His death was caused from typhoid fever and his sickness was of short duration.

In the meantime Mr. Little had accumulated considerable property and was counted one of the most substantial farmers in the county. But his generous disposition led him to assume responsibilities for others who were unable to meet their obligations. Through this and other reverses of fortune he became deeply involved and eventually lost all his property. For several years past he has been making his home among his children, while he has engaged in various occupations, none of which were very remunerative. Yet, notwithstanding all the reverses and misfortunes of his later life, John E.

The remaining members of the family are Robert and Charles and Mrs. John Eaton, of this city."
