GEORGE W. SANDS, died suddenly of heart failure Sunday morning at his boarding house, near the Capitol, in Washington, aged 57 years. Mr. Sands, who was formerly of this city, was preparing to come to Hagerstown on the B&O excursion when stricken. He had been down to the station Saturday night and he went to his boarding house and complained of feeling ill. He went to bed and was found dead in it, peaceful and composed as he had died without a pang of any kind. He had taken a little medicine that he had gotten at a drug store, but had declined to see a physician. Added by Sanebee George W.

SANDS, died suddenly of heart failure Sunday morning at his boarding house, near the Capitol, in Washington, aged 57 years. Mr. Sands, who was formerly of this city, was preparing to come to Hagerstown on the B&O excursion when stricken. He had been down to the station Saturday night and he went to his boarding house and complained of feeling ill. He went to bed and was found dead in it, peaceful and composed as he had died without a pang of any kind. He had taken a little medicine that he had gotten at a drug store, but had declined to see a physician. The telegram announcing his death was a severe shock to his family. The deceased had been employed in the Government Printing Office since last March. He was appointed to the position through the influence of Congressman Pearre. Mr. Sands had been a sufferer from heart trouble for some time, but had been feeling well. He was a tailor by trade and for a number of years was employed by Grove Bros. Before going to Washington he was a Court baliff. He was a Republican and took an active part in politics. During 1898 he had charge of the senate cloak room at Annapolis. He served in the Union Army during the latter part of the Civil War. He was a member of Reno Post G.A.R. and Sioux Tribe of Redmen.
