Dr. Charles Henry Newth, veteran physician of Philomath, died at his home there shortly after one o’clock this morning. Dr. Newth had been ill but two days prior to his demise, from trouble apparently of the nature of acute indigestion, and news of his death this morning came as a surprise and shock to friends in his home town and in Corvallis where he was generally known.

Dr. Newth located in Philomath practically 25 years ago and had practiced his profession in that city and the surrounding country until he was forced to give up his work Monday of this week. He was twice married, the first Mrs. Newth passing away at Philomath a number of years ago. Two daughters by the first marriage reside in Portland, and his widow and one son, Carrol, are residents of Philomath.

The funeral service will be held from the White church at Philomath at 2 o’clock Friday afternoon and interment is to be in Newton cemetery.
