Suffers an Attack of Heart Trouble
Saturday Night at His home
in Chicago.
          Word reached here Sunday morning of the death of  Edward Beeks,  son-in-law of  Mr. and Mrs. John Blessing,  of East Franklin street.  His death occurred suddenly at his home in Chicago.  He seemed to be in the best of health, when without warning an attack of heart trouble suddenly seized him, resulting fatally.  Mr. Beeks had apparently, been in the best of health, and at only one time had a very slight stroke of apoplexy, this stroke attacking him a number of years ago and was so slight that not even much attention was paid to it.
          Deceased was 53 years of age and leaves a widow, who is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Blessing, and a son,  John,  who is 21 years of age.
          The remains arrived here this afternoon and were taken to the Blessing home.  The funeral services will probably be held Tuesday afternoon, although this has not been definitely decided upon.
          Later -- The funeral services of the late Edward Beeks will be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Blessing on East Franklin street at two o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Walter E. Price, of the First Presbyterian church, officiating.  The interment will be in the Forest Hill cemetery.
