B. F. Doughty Dead.

Benjamin F. Doughty, aged 56 years, died last evening at his home 926 North First street. Paralysis was given as the cause of death, but it was coupled with several other complications. Mr. Doughty has been sick for some time and suffered a stroke of paralysis last week, after which he grew rapidly worse until he died.

The deceased leaves a family and was a member of the Woodmen of the World, in which order he carried insurance. He had been engaged in the second hand business in this city for several years.

The funeral was held this afternoon from the residence, Rev. Howard conducting the services, after which interment took place in Mercer cemetery.
