— Word reached this city yesterday of the death of Henry Rust, of Philomath. He went to bed Monday night apparently in good health and the cause of his death could not be ascertained, but it is supposed to have been heart failure. He was a man about fifty years of age, well known and respected, and leaves quite a large family, most of whom are grown to maturity.

Henry Rust, an old and respected resident of Benton county, died suddenly Monday night at his home two miles southwest of Philomath. He had been in usual good health previous to his demise and went to bed Monday night, after eating a hearty supper, apparently well and hearty. Toward morning he uttered a groan as if in pain and his wife tried to awaken him, but her efforts were futile. Dr. Loggan was sent for, but before his arrival the patient was cold in death. Mr. Rust was about 55 years of age and leaves a wife and a large family of children to mourn his loss.
