in i he presence of Archbishop J. J.

For some time Mr. Gray lias not
been .in the best of health but none
of his friends nor even members of
the family dreamed that the end was,
so near. Fa- some days he had been
suffering with severe nervousness
and Friday night his condition .was
so severe that a physician was called
who gave Mr. Gray something to
make him rest, as he had been un
abie to go to sleep and was threaten
ed will: complete collapse and ner
vous breakdown. His system, how
ever, failed to" respond to the treat-
raenl and the end came Saturday
without hnn regaining consciousness, j
"Frank Gray' was known and lov-1
ed by every one. One merchant by j
whom he had been employed at one
time said: " j
''It is worth a thousand dollars a j
year to my business just to have
r't ank Gray around everybody likes I
him so well." j
