    Notes 

    • SCOTTDALE, Aug. 2 ? Elisha C. Porter, a well known farmer and almost a life-long resident of this community, died at his home one mile west of Scottdale this morning at 2 o'clock, after several months' illness due to a disease of the nerves, aged 64 years. He was taken ill last autumn after suffering a fall from a mowing machine. While crossing a small stream, the mower dropping sidewise and he was tumbled backward out of the seat, alighting on his head and shoulders. For the past 10 months he had been confined to his room, but bore his illness uncomplainingly and with Christian fortitude. The deceased was a son of the late Moses and Amy Porter, early residents of this section. He is survived by his wife, Almeda, only sister of Dr. A. W. Strickler of Scottdale, and three sons, Albert L., of The Courier staff, James Lester, representative of a tea and coffee firm, and John Allan, who is on the home farm. Three brothers and a sister survive: J. Dennis Porter, a farmer of near Summit Mines, George W. Porter, on a nearby farm to Scottdale; L. Lindley Porter, a physician of North Yakima, Washington, and Miss Lydia Porter of Scottdale. He was for a great many years a member of the Jacobs Creek Methodist Episcopal Church and served for several years as Superintendent of the Sunday school and a member of the Official Board, and for the last 12 years has prepared the communion after this duty was relinquished by his brother-in-law, the late John Keyser, on account of his illness.
