Sudden Call to His God.

Last Friday morning, in the Stamp Creek district, in this county, three brothers, Joseph, William and George Rogers, were engaged near their mill in the erection of a pen for fattening hogs. They had their work well under way when suddenly William began falling to the ground, but was caught by Joseph. Frightened, the two brothers looked into Williamís face and there saw that grim death had set his seal. The deceased tried to speak while falling but could not. As the occurrence was witnessed by the brothers, an inquest was unnecessary. Mr. Rogers was perhaps about fifty-five years of age, unmarried, and was a consistent member of the Methodist church. Heart disease was no doubt the cause of his sudden demise.
