DIED. - Isaac H. Ward, a native of Tennessee, and an old resident of Merced county, died at the county hospital last Tuesday, aged 78 years. Mr. Ward at one time was a man of considerable means, and possessed of great energy and force of character. Misfortune and old age had rendered him fretful and incapable of sustaining himself and he has been comfortably provided for at the county hospital for a number of years past. Those who knew him in his vigorous manhood and prosperity, will be slow to realize how one possessed of so many superior qualifications could end his days in a charitable institution, But such is life. The proud are often humbled and the "meek" are occasionally "lifted up."
