Claude Mount, Promising Young Man,
Died Saturday Evening
          Claude Mount, a clerk at the Pennsylvania railroad freight office, this city, died Saturday evening at the home of his mother  Mrs. Sherman [Celeste] Monroe, 405 North Pike street.  The funeral was held this morning at the home, by Rev. H. H. Spear, of the First Baptist church, and the Rev. Joseph McQueen, of Sulphur Hill.  After this service, the remains were taken to Bethel, where services were conducted, the interment being at the Copeland graveyard, east of Waldron.
          Mr. Mount was born in Noble township twenty-four years ago.  He was the step-son of  William Sherman Monroe.  He is survived by his mother, two half-sisters,  Mrs. Jesse Wolfe  and  Mrs. Anna Howe, and two half-brothers, Earl  and  Forest Monroe.  When only fourteen he joined the Separate Baptist church and lived in the faith of that creed. Only three weeks ago he was given the third degree in Odd Fellowship.
          Mr. Mount was an exceptionally bright young man.  He had chosen railroad work as his occupation and was employed as a clerk in the local freight depot of the Pennsylvania lines.  He was stricken with appendicitis a few days ago, which caused his death.
