Henry S. Clouse, a well known and respected citizen of Jackson township, died suddenly at his home near Wallace, Thursday morning, Feb. 12th. On the morning of that day he arose in apparently the best of health, ate his breakfast and went about his morning work as usual. In a short time however, he returned to the house and complained of feeling exhausted and of pain through his breast and lungs. Dr. Rice, of Wallace, was at once sent for but before he arrived Mr. Clouse had expired, having been stricken fatally with paralysis of the brain. At the time of his death Mr. Clouse had reached the age of sixty-three years, two months and thirteen days. His whole life was spent upon the farm on which he died. He leaves a wife, one son, two daughters, seven grandchildren, one brother, three sisters and a host of friends to mourn his loss. The funeral which was held in the Lutheran church near the home, Saturday the 14th, was largely attended. He was laid to rest in the cemetery adjoining the church. Thus ended a busy, earnest life. He died as in a sweet slumber of peace and quietness. Being a man of robust health his sudden death was a great shock to the community.
