Wednesday morning at 4:30 a. m., Mr. J. A. Hoffman, a well known resident of the town of Newport was found in a dying condition. He had not been well for a few days previous but his condition was not such as to cause any uneasiness. It is thought that he had an attack of lagrippe and that complications of heart trouble set in during the early part of the morning. He lived but a short time after aid reached him.
He was one of the best known residents of the township of Newport. He held the office of assessor for forty years and for a number of years has served as collector. For 28 years he has held the office of clerk of Russell camp M. W. A. He had been a collector for the Millburn Insurance company ever since it was formed.
The deceased was born in Pennsylvania May 29, 1842, but for a great many years his home has been in Newport township. The funeral services will be held Friday, at 1 o'clock.
Mrs. Alex Hanlan, only daughter of the deceased, whose home is now in Canada arrived here on Friday last, it being the first visit to her old home in eight years. Her visit was a surprise to her father and little did she think when she arrived that she would attend his funeral before returning to her home.
