DEPARTED THIS LIFE - After an illness of more than 5 months, Mr. Frederick EBERLEIN breathed his last at his home in this city yesterday afternoon at 3:00. The cause of his death is not definitely known. Mr. Eberlein submitted to an operation some months ago, but received no benefit and has been confined to his bed ever since. Deceased was born in Germany Jan. 31, 1834 and came to this country when 16 years of age. He settled in Shawano county 26 years ago and 10 years later moved to this city, which has since been his home. He was an industrious and upright citizen and as such enjoyed the respect and esteem of all. A wife and family of 11 sons and daughters survive him. The funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 2:00 at the Lutheran church, conducted by Rev. Th. Nickel.
