Roscoe Parkhurst Suddenly Expires in His
Father's Barn, near Fairland.
          Roscoe Parkhurst  was found dead at the home of his father, about two miles from Fairland, Wednesday night.
          Between the hours of three and four o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Roscoe Parkhurst, who makes his home with his father,  J. W. Parkhurst,  near Fairland, left the house, going to the barn to feed the stock.  He did not return for supper, so the family thought he had gone to Fairland.  He had not put in an appearance at his home at nine o'clock when his father returned, so they becoming alarmed, sent Mr. Parkhurst out to look for him.  He took a lantern and went to the barn.  Noticing that the stock had not been fed that evening he ascended the ladder.  Reaching the loft he examined it and found his on lying dead on the hay.  He immediately summoned the family who called a physician, but to no use as the young man had been dead several hours.
          He was twenty-four ears of age and had been a sufferer from heart trouble, which was supposed to be the cause of his death.  He leaves a wife and one child.  The funeral will be held Friday.
