Mr. George Evans, of this place, died on Thursday and was buried on Friday. Mr. Evans had been a great sufferer, having been troubled with a tumor in his face since last summer. He was treated by different physicians but kept getting worse. Last March he went to Philadelphia and had a very difficult and dangerous operation performed-the cutting away the cheek bone and nearly half the upper jaw bone on one side, and removing one eye. After this painful operation he came home with the encouragement that he would get well. But his face swelled up again, and after about three months of intense suffering death came to his relief.
