Died, Tuesday evening at 9:45, at his home in this city, James S.Sterling. Mr. Sterling had been quite sick for some time, but had beenreported better and hopes were entertained of his recovery. Consequently the news of his death was quite a shock to his friends. The malady from which his death resulted was pronounced gangrene of the lungs. He was sixty-one years age, and old soldier, one of the pioneers of this county, standing high with his fellows, and had been honored with more than one public position.

The funeral is to be held this afternoon at 3:30 at the family residence, Rev. H.D. Rice officiating.
