      (Source: Bureau of the Evening Times, Frostburg, Feb. 15) Mr. Benjamin Yates, aged 55 years, a native of this county and a former resident of this place, died Sunday night, Feb. 11, in a hospital at Boston, Mass. His illness dates from Jan. 5th when, while travelling on foot in the vicinity of Boston, he had both his feet frozen. Early last week his condition became so critical that Mr. Isaac Yates, a brother, and Mr. Richard Gunter, a brother-in-law of the suffering man, were summoned to Boston by the hospital physician.

      When they arrived, they found Mr. Yates bright and cheerful, although he seemed to realize that his end was near. The sufferer expressed gratitude for the kind treatment he had received from the nurses and physicians. The doctors stated that they probably could have saved Mr. Yates' life by amputating both feet, but he would not consent to the operation. The deceased is survived by one brother and three sisters: Mr. Isaac Yates, Mrs. Richard Gunter, Mrs. John Harris and Mrs. Phil Offman, all of Grahamtown. The remains are expected to arrive here today. Funeral will most likely take place Friday.
