Was a Prominent Citizen of Evergreen, Ala.

Evergreen, Ala, July 18 - A. B. Farnham, prominent in this section of Alabama, met a tragic death today. He had been confined to his home by illness for some days, and this morning the report of a gun drew his family to his room.

Mr. Farnham was found dying with the contents of one barrel of a shotgun in his abdomen.

It is believed that he went to the closet to get the gun to clean it and that it was accidently discharged.
