T. J. Yearty

T. J. Yearty, of Vista, was thrown from his horse yesterday and died at a late hour last night.

Mr. Yearty was the founder of the town of Vista and operated an up-to-date cedar and cypress mill at that point. He has always taken a great interest in the development of this section of the county, and the loss by his sudden death, will be keenly felt, not only by the mill employees, butby the county at large.

Mr. Yearty was born and reared in Levy county and was known all over the entire state for his stability in business and firmness of character. He is survived by a wife and several children, as well as a host of friends, who extend to the bereaved family their heartfelt sympathy.
