Telegraphic information was received here this afternoon from Camp Cody, at Deming, New Mexico, of the death of Private Fred Seitz, a member of Company A, 169th company of Engineers of Johnson county. The soldier's death was caused by pneumonia. Seitz was about nineteen years of age, and until about three years ago, when he went to Iowa City to live, he had been at the Orphan's home on the Burlington road. Mr. Reinemund stated this afternoon that Private Seitz had stayed at the home for more than twelve years, coming there when but a small child, and remaining until he had reached the age of fifteen, when he went to Iowa City. His father, E. Mass of Iowa City and a married sister at that place, survive.
