Lingo were pained yesterday afternoon to learn of his sudden ' death, which occurred about 2 o'clock at tb office of Dodsworth's distillery. In Carthage. He had been In the employ of Mr. Dodaworth about two years, and bad charge of tb gaugers reports, tn which capacity ht experience for a number of years In ths revenue service mad him a most valuable man. He had been at the distillery warehouse examining- th Gaugers reports, and returned to the office. He sat down, and was reading a newspaper, when some one In the office noticed his head suddenly droop on tits breast, and be turned very pale. He was quickly placed In a reclining position, and all tbe attention possible given htm. but bo gave no signs of consciousness. He gaeped once or twice, and In a moment death came to his relief, caused, it Is supposed, by neuralgia of th heart. Caleb Frederick Lingo wa th oldest child of Caleb and Margaret Lingo, and born In Cincinnati November Id. lKtu. When a young man he worked for his fa-ther In the Cummtnsvill planing mill and learned the business thoroughly. He aft erward moved onto a farm near Lafayette, Ind.. and at th breaking out of the war. in 1811 etrtlsted In the Tenth Indiana Volun teer Infantry. He was wounded four times while in tne service, ana was snot in tne shoulder at the "buttle of CMckamauga. wtilch wound troubled him frequently up to the day f his death. After the war he went Into the revenue service under James Puilan. then Assessor of Internal Revenue, and was engaged In the Revenue uepartment until I leveuuia wss elected the first term, when he retired. When Harrison was eiectea ne waa rein-atad under the Rcooblican Administra tion, and remained there under Collector McCtung until the latter was removed by Preandont Cleveland during his second term as Chief Executive.

His widow Is prostrated over the intelligence of his sud den Gem IBS. ano sne nas tne sympaiuy vi a large circle of friends. The deceased was a member of tha plan ing mill firm of Caleb Lingo A Son. which assigned about four or Ave daya ago. It Is supposed that the failure of the firm preyed upon bis mind and assisted materially to haaten bis death. Ha waa a member of Hoffner Lodge, F. and A.

It Is a singular fact that his mother died very suddenly in almost the same manner as her son, in 1KU3. without a moment's warning. She. waa stricken down and died while she wss preparing supper. His oldest sister, the wife of M. 8. Turrill, of Northslde, also died o,ult suddenly tnree weeas ago to-aay.
