Mr. J. W. TALLENTIRE, Harrington.

   Mr. J. W. TALLENTIRE, a joiner at the local  ironworks and a well known
football official died suddenly at his home 2, Rose  Hill, Harrington on
Saturday. He was in his 62nd year.

   On Saturday morning, Mr. TALLENTIRE left home to  follow his occupation
as a joiner. He returned home at eleven o'clock, however,  and said he was not
feeling so well. He went to bed and about 1-30 his daughter,  who was going
away to Keswick, went upstairs to see him and he then said he was  a lot better
and would be at work on Monday morning. His wife went to the town  to see his
daughter off, and when she returned home about 2 p.m. she found her  husband
unconscious. Dr. CULLEN was called in but Mr. TALLENTIRE had passed  away.

   The matter was reported to the Coroner but an  inquest was not deemed
necessary. It is understood that heart failure was the  cause of death. Mr.
TALLENTIRE leaves a widow and a son and daughter. He  belonged to an old Harrington
family. For many years he was employed by the late  Mr. Hodgson SIMON, joiner
and undertaker, whose business is still carried on by  the eldest son, Mr.
Harry SIMON. He was the respected member of the  Egremont  and Whitehaven
Football League Management Committee, being  elected season after season and his
position will be difficult to fill. Mr.  TALLENTIRE took a keen interest in the
Harrington Y. M. C. A., and was secretary  of the Harrington Lodge of the
