    CHARLES F. KLINGER
    Charles Franklin Klinger, aged 6O years, 6 month and 17 days, died at 8:45 o'clock Monday evening, September 3, at his home on Grand ave., after a several months illness of cancer of the stomach. Although under the care of a physician for a long time, he was able to work up to about six weeks ago, when he was compelled to quit. He made several trips to Phila. to consult specialists but none could hold out any hope. During the past week or two he had been sinking rapidly and it was known that the death angel might call at any time. Although at limes he suffered greatly, his death was very peaceful.
    The deceased was a son of the late William Klinger and wife. He was born near Fearnot, Hubley Twp., February 10, 1857. His parents moved to Tower City when he was eleven years of ago and he has resided here continuously since that time. He was a member of the United Evangelical church and Sunday School since boyhood and for many years took an active interest in church work, having held nearly every office within the gift of the church and Sunday School. He was of a quiet disposition and much attached to his home. He was widely known and held in high esteem.
    His widow, nee Jennings, and the following brothers and sisters survive: Albert, Suubury; William, Tower City; Mrs. Wm. Fritz, Treverton [sic]; Mrs. Amanda Robinson and Mrs. E. L. Ramer, Slatington; Mrs. James Lewis, Mrs. W. F. Kuecht aud Mrs. Nelson Rishe, Tower City. The couple never had any children.
    The funeral took place Thursday afternoon at one o'clock from his late home on Grand ave. and was largely attended. His pastor, Rev. W. L. Teel, had charge of the services. He was assisted by Rev. Arthur Oakes of Spring City, a close friend of the family, and Rev. Gutbub pastor ol the local M. E. church. At the close of the services the remains were taken to Greenwood for interment.
