Word was received in Cavour on Monday morning of the death of John W. [sic] Gallup at an Ann Arbor, Mich., hospital. Mr. Gallup has lived at Sears, Michigan, for some six years and was taken to Ann Arbor October 4 and only lived five days, dying the ninth of October.  Mr. Gallup was afflicted with dropsy and suffered terribly. He was well known to old settlers and was at one time Lakeside correspondent for the (then) Journal-World, now State Spirit.  At one time he, together with H.C. Teets, owned the Cavour hotel, selling his interest to Teets and going to Michigan.

Needs the Journal-World

Friend Boggs: Will you please send me the back numbers of the Journal-World from say October 25 down to date. If I decide to locate in the east permanently I will let you know my address as I cannot keep house without the J-W., but I expect to return to South Dakota soon.

My health is good; has, I think, improved some in the last two weeks. I am taking treatment from Dr. Chas. Mayo, of Rochester, but he did not think it necessary to operate on me.

Order of Home Guardians Pays Another Claim.

J.C. Milne, Supreme Field Marshal for the Order of Home Guardians, went down to Cavour on Saturday to play the claim of John Gallup of that place against this Order for total disability.  John was offered two options according to his policy.  He could accept half the value of his certificate now and continue his insurance in force at the rate of assessment on the original certificate or he could cancel his policy receiving the same amount.  He wisely chose the former and will continue to carry his insurance with the Order. As usual the Home Guardians were the first to pay the claim, living up to their reputation of first in prosperity, first in trouble and first to pay.

Miss Gallup Was Seriously Ill

Ate Chicken Which Was Tainted and Ptomaine Poisoning Resulted

Miss Hazel Gallup, daughter of Charles E. Gallup, of East Kingsley street was made dangerously sick this week by eating some chicken which had been cooked in a metal kettle, and developed ptomaine poisoning.

Miss Gallup had been visiting her sister, Mrs. Harlow Ingall of Medina for a few days, and before she left on Sunday her sister gave her a cooked chicken to bring home. On Monday she ate a small quantity and soon afterward was taken violently ill. A doctor was called who pronounced it ptomaine poisoning, and vigorous treatment probably saved her life. Today she is just able to be about the house, although still very weak.
