Mr. Bingham was in usual health Saturday morning when he arose, which was about 5:30 o'clock, but it being early he went back to bed for a short time and was conversing with his wife when he was suddenly stricken with apoplexy and remained unconscious until death. He had been in excellent health and had remarked to his wife how well he slept and how good he felt. Medical assistance was called but nothing could be done and he died at susset. He leaves besides his wife, two daughters, Mrs. John Kohler of Rochester and Mrs. Charles Goodrich, and one son, A. Rowe Bingham of this place.

By looking at the stove it was found that she had started up the fire as usual in the morning and it was first supposed she had an attach of paralysis but it is now thought she had a dizzy spell and in falling struck her head which rendered her unconscious. She was not found until afternoon and was very cold. She regained consciousness after much medical work but is still in a very critical condition.

He was seen to drive into the gully and as there is but the one entrance and exit and he did not return, an investigation was made in the fear that in his condition he had met with harm. It was found that he had driven into the creek, which was very high from the rains, and his horse had turned down, gone with the current until the wheels became wedged in the rocks, had then broken loose and gone foraging for himself, and that his owner was camping in the wagon in the middle of the creek with two pint bottles of whisky to keep him warm.

Some time ago Father Notebaert, who had been annoyed several times by thieves entering the church and stealing the contribution boxes had the boxes arranged so that if they were moved a bell would ring in his house.
He heard the bell ring on Saturday afternoon and upon going into the church found Webb there. He was turned over to the police.
