A Sudden Death
Albert J. Weeks Expires while Conversing with his Doctor

A startling and unlooked for termination of a case of illness occurred last evening at 6:10 o'clock at the home of Albert J. Weeks on Greenwood avenue, north of Oak street.

Mr. Weeks, a clerk in the employment of C. E. & A. Swannell, was compelled by illness to quit work three weeks ago tomorrow. Typhoid fever developed and he became a very sick man. He had apparently passed the crisis of his disease, and his physician had put him on a stronger diet. He was in a cheerful frame of mind, anticipating his speedy recovery. Yesterday evening he was sitting propped up in bed conversing with Dr. True. He told the Dr. that he had been fattening a turkey for Thanksgiving, but that he would have it for Christmas dinner. Suddenly he dropped back on his pillow and with a convulsive gasp died. His young wife is completely prostrated. She has passed from one fainting spell to another and requires constant care. Mr. Weeks' mother, who is in Canada, hs been telegraphed for. The relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Weeks live in New York state. Mr. Weeks came to Kankakee about three years ago and has been clerking at Swannells ever since. Prior to that time his mother had been keeping house for a farmer near Chebanse. His age was 23 years at the time of is death. Besides his wife, he leaves one child, a boy about 3 years of age.

Mrs. Weeks' father will arrive frome Malone, N. Y., tomorrow when arrangements for the funeral will be made.
