Aged Foreman Of Mines Dead

Thomas Taggart, for many years foreman of the Baisley mine near Baker some several years ago died Sunday at the home of his son, George W. Taggart at Woodland, Washington, according to a telegram received by relatives in Baker.

Mr. Taggart was a native of Illinois. He came to Baker county from the east 45 years ago and lived in the vicinity of Baker until last fall. He was about 72 years of age.

He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Gertie Taggart and two sons, Edward and Paul of Hollywood, Cal., a son, George of Woodland, and a step-daughter, Mrs. Roma McKittrick of Baker. Orrin McKittrick of this city left this afternoon for Woodland to attend the funeral.

Mr. Taggart had expected to go on to California last fall after a short visit with his son. He was injured in an auto accident between Portland and Woodland and was never able to resume the journey to the south.
