Mr. Harding caught a cold six weeks ago which developed into malaria and finally into pneumonia.

Until his illness, he had been mine manager for the Patterson-Harding mine, now owned by the Stiehl brothers.

Mr. Harding and his wife, the former Miss Annie Beaumont, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on May 8. The couple had eleven children, including triplets, and seven survive. The triples were the last three children born and they died before they were two months of age.

Mr. Harding came from England to this country when he was 21 years of age, following the death of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Harding.
