Mrs. Carl Talbott was notified last Wednesday that her father, J. R. France of Colorado Springs, Colo., had suffered a stroke. A short time later she received another wire telling of his death. She and her sister, Mrs. Wendell Tingley of Vermont, left for Colorado Thursday night, arriving there Friday morning. Funeral services were held from the Law Mortuary in that city Friday afternoon at 2:00, with interment in the Evergreen cemetery.

Mr. France was born near Ipava on May 29, 1877, a son of Thomas H. and Mary Vaughn France. He was 76 years of age at the time of his death.

The boys' mother died in 1907 and in 1912 he was married at Colorado Springs to Maud Kost of Vermont, who survives, with the two daughters, Lucille Talbott of Astoria and Louise Tingley of Vermont. Two sisters and one brother survive, namely, Mrs. Maud Horton and Mrs. Mary McGrath, both of Long Beach, Calif., and Carl, of San Francisco.
