Jenners, Oct. 9. -- William H. Kautz, aged about thirty years, died Sunday at the home of his father, C. H. Kautz, and was buried this morning at 10:30 o'clock in the Horner Lutheran Cemetery.
William Kautz was a young man of strong physique. When the Spanish-American War broke out he enlisted, being one of the first to volunteer. While engaged in service for Uncle Sam he was stricken with fever, and gradually failed in health. He returned to this State and located at Latrobe where he resided for some time. His health prevented him from working, and he removed to the home of his father, where he resided up until the time of his death.
He is survived by his father, wife, and one child. Also by three brothers -- Harry and George of Pittsburg, and James, of Nevada -- and two sisters -- Mrs. Irvin Berkey, of the Seventeenth Ward, Johnstown, and Mrs. John L. Sipe, of this place. His wife was the daughter of the late Harry D. Lohr, of near Jenners.
The deceased was a young man of good character and reputation and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He was a faithful worker in the interest of the Lutheran church. He taught school for a number of years in Somerset County.
