(Additional obituary; same newspaper, same page)
Mr. William Pringle, Jr., agent of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company at Portage, this county, died at 8 o'clock p.m. Wednesday. Mr. Pringle had been in delicate health for years. At one time it was feared he would fall a victim to consumption, but he recovered, and for a period seemed to be much stronger and better, but a cancerous tumor formed in his bowels, and his condition again became critical. He went to Philadelphia and had an operation performed which seemed to give him some relief. A relapse followed, however, and another operation was deemed necessary. This was performed on Tuesday last at his home. He was so physically prostrated that he could not rally from the effects of it, and he declined gradually until death ended his sufferings.
Mr. Pringle had been agent for the company for about twelve years, and in all his dealings he had the confidence of his employers and the public in general. He was married twice. His first wife died about seventeen years ago. To his second wife he was married some years subsequent. He was the father of eight children, by whom and his devoted spouse he is survived. He was a member of the United Brethren Church and a respected citizen of the community in which he lived. The funeral will take place tomorrow.
