TWO MURRAYVILLE RESIDENTS DIE
C. Guy Coultas, a Popular School Teacher, Passes Away After Week's Illness of Typhoid Fever and Marion M. Crouse Answers Final Summons.
C. Guy Coultas, one of the popular school teachers, of the Murrayville community, died Friday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock, after a week's illness, from typhoid fever, aged 23 years. In some unknown manner the fever broke out on the street where Mr. Coultas resided and he was one of those who contracted the disease, together with his wife, who is still quite ill. Mr. Coultas was a sick man from the day he took his bed and the best medical attention availed nothing. At the time of his death his temperature was 108 degrees.
He was born in Murrayville, Dec. 29, 1886, and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Coultas. He was a young man of industrious and studious habits and after finishing the common schools prepared himself for teaching, which had been his profession for the past four years. Last year he taught at West Greasy and his services had been secured for the coming winter. He was married Oct. 22, 1906 to Miss Elizabeth Wilson. Mr. Coultas was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, of the Modern Woodmen, Odd Fellows, Rebekahs and Masons.
Besides his wife he is survived by two children, Fay Elizabeth and Helen Gladys, his parents, two sisters, Mrs. Nora Spencer of Manchester and Lula at home; also three brothers, Herbert of Greenfield, Frank of Chicago and Walter of Murrayville.
Funeral services will be conducted Sunday morning at 10 o'clock and interment will be made in the Bethel cemetery.
