Contracted In Cuba
Was Disease That Caused Death of Former Soldier
Mr. Herbert Head, of Irvington, Ky., died at the Phoenix Hotel in this city at 6:30 o'clock Saturday morning, after an illness of about three weeks of chronic diarrhea, aged about twenty five years. Mr. Head was Secretary and treasury of the American Finance Corporation with headquarters at Owensboro and came to this city about a month ago in the interest of his business. Four days after his arrival he was taken very ill and the first of last week his condition grew so alarming that his father, H. B. Head, was notified and came here at once, remaining at his bedside until the end came. The young man was a member of the Owensboro company, Third Kentucky Regiment, served through the Spanish American war and contracted the disease which cost him his life while in Cuba. Mr. Head was a lawyer by profession but retired from practice some months ago to accept the position he occupied at the time of his death. He was unmarried and a member of one among the most prominent families of Irvington. He was a near relative of Mr. E. G. Dent, of this city. The remains were taken to his late home Saturday for interment.
