Recent Arrival in this Country Succumbs to Pneumonia at St. Luke's Hospital

After surviving the hardships and dangers of four years of warfare in an English infantry regiment in the late war, James B. Currie, a native of Scotland, who was quite recently migrated to this country, succumbed to an attack of pneumonia this morning at 4 o'clock in St. Luke's Hospital, aged 25 years.

The young Scot came to this country less than two months ago to visit his brother, David, in Trenton, N. J., and while here affiliated with the Bethlehem F. C. soccer team. Currie was a forward, having played an outside right position with some of the strongest European clubs, and his acquisition to the newly-recruited Bethlehem team was welcomed. He, however, sported the colors in only a few games this season, the last of which was against Harrison about three weeks ago.

Shortly after that game, he was taken ill and today a week ago was removed to St. Luke's Hospital seriously afflicted with pneumonia.<

Relatives in this country were very few, including only his brother, David, and an aunt, a Mrs. Robert Montgomery, of Elizabeth, N. J., who were at his bedside when he passed away.

The body was taken in charge by Undertaker Wetterbuch and forward this afternoon at 4:30 o'clock to the residence of the aunt at Elizabeth, N. J. Funeral arrangements have not yet been completed.
