DEATH OF MR. JOSEPH WEBB
A Surgical Operation Proved Fatal - He Died in Chicago
     News was received in the city Sunday morning of the death in Chicago of Mr. Joseph Webb, of Hillsboro, a brother of Mrs. J. B. Cheshire and brother-in-law of Mrs. Joseph Graham.  Mr. Webb was stricken with paralysis some months ago, and was induced by friends West to go to the Lincoln Park Sanitarium i Chicago.  He, accordingly, left Hillsboro several weeks ago for the Sanitarium and was there advised to undergo an operation, which it was claimed, would restore him to health.  The operation was performed Saturday, and proved fatal.  Mrs. Webb and children were here at Dr. Graham's when they received the sad news.
     Mr. Webb was 44 years of age.  He was a native of Hillsboro, and a graduate of Chapel Hill.  Few ever left the University with a brighter record.  His was a life and character of high integrity, pureness of purpose, and devotion to honor and principle.  He was a member of the Episcopal church, and a devout church man.  The remains were to arrive in Hillsboro Sunday night. Mrs. Webb, accompanied by her sister, Miss Rebecca Hill, and niece, Miss Bessie Graham left here yesterday morning for that place.
