George W. Allen, formerly of this city, but who of late years has lived at Brazil, died at that place on Wednesday, of softening of the brain. Mr. Allen was born and raised in this county and for many years was in business in this city. At the time of his death he was about 55 years of age. His wife, Mahala C., and his daughter, Kate, were present at his bedside when he died. His remains were buried at that place yesterday.
