          Charley Burl Bates,  age 62 years, was found dead about four o'clock Wednesday afternoon in the woods of the  John Tindall  farm, two and one-half miles east of Shelbyville near the Mt. Pisgah church, where he had gone Tuesday afternoon to cut wood.  The body was discovered by  William Bates,  a brother, and  Perry Rhodes, about twenty-six hours after death occurred according to the report of  Clyde Underwood, Shelby county coroner, which stated that death was due to apaplexy[sic].
          Mr. Bates had been living alone in Melterzerville since the death of his mother,  Mrs. Horace Bates,  which occurred eight weeks ago.  The brother and neighbors did not become alarmed when they did not see Mr. Bates about his home Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning as he was in the habit of visiting his sister, Mrs. Artie Edwards,  of Manilla, and other relatives for a day or two at a time.  When someone reported seeing him go into the woods about 12:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon a search was begun, and the body was found a short time afterwards on the Tindall farm.
          The deceased was born in Shelby county May 24, 1867 and was the son of  Mr. and Mrs. Horace Bates.  Besides the brother already mentioned he leaves two other brothers,  Harry Bates,  of Anderson; and  Bert Bates  of Shelby county; two sisters,  Mrs. Artie Edwards,  of Manilla; and  Mrs. Ollie Baker,  of Indianapolis.
          Mr. Bates had been a member of the Mt. Pisgah church for the past thirty-five years.
          The body was taken to the home in Meltzerville, where friends may call any time from five o'clock this evening until the hour of the funeral.  Funeral services will be conducted from the Mt. Pisgah church Friday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, with the Rev. John Reese officiating.  Burial will be in the church cemetery in charge of Charles M. Ewing.
