A private telegram received here today from Akeley, Minn. announced the death there of the father of Mrs. A.R. MAULSBY, of this city. The parent's name was BEARD, and he was widely known amoung G.A.R. members of this city, having been here for several months, until about three weeks ago, when he went to Akeley. The telegram announced merely the death without giving the cause, and evidently the demise was sudden, because no information of the illness had been received here. Mr. BEARD was not feeling well when he left Everett three weeks ago, but that death was near at hand was not suspected. Mr. BEARD resided in Everett for several months and was employed as driver of hearses by Maulsby & Sons. He was past commander of the G.A.R. post at Akeley. The funeral will take place there.
