A Well Known Young Telegraph Operator Dies.

A sad death was that of Mr. Robert Callahan, which occurred on Tuesday morning and was the result of consumption. He was about 25 years of age and was a bright boy and a splendid telegraph operator. He had been in the Western Union’s and the W. & A. railroad’s service for many years and was punctual, trustworthy and efficient. He had been a cripple from infancy, but displayed an energy and cheerfulness at all times that was wonderful.

He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Callahan, and was a great aid and comfort to his parents.

The public sympathize deeply with them in their loss.
