      George H. ADAMS, aged 82, retired farmer and veteran police officer of this city, died Saturday morning at the home of his foster son, Earle ADAMS, five miles north of this city following a heart attack.

      The deceased had been in ill health for many years due to heart trouble, but his death was entirely unexpected. The death occurred at 5:15 o'clock.

      Mr. Adams for a number of years lived on a farm north of this city along the Tippecanoe River. He plotted a piece of ground there as a camping site which is known under the name of Adams Landing and Adams High Banks.

      Mr. Adams served as city marshal, deputy sheriff and court bailiff. For the past forty years he has served as constable in justice of peace courts here. At the time of his death he was employed by Justice William EWING.

      The deceased was a member of the Baptist Church and the Knights of Pythias lodges of this city. He was a charter member of the Citizens Band of this city. He played the bass drum.

      Survivors are the foster son, Earle ADAMS; two grandchildren, Miss Nadine ADAMS, Louisville, Ky., and Mrs. Ruth McGRIFF, Rochester, and a brother, Marshall ADAMS, Cope, Michigan. A son died in infancy.
