Lieutenant Woods died on board the training ship Baltimore while the ship was cruising in the Indian Ocean, death following a short illness with pneumonia. He was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Woods, and was born in this city, November 14, 1877, removing from here a few years ago to Ottawa, Ill. He was well known in this city having attended the schools here for some time. He was a graduate of the Annapolis Naval academy in 1900 and soon after his graduation, received an assignment and served in the navy for about seven years. At the time of his death he was returning to the United States, after a long cruise in eastern waters, and expected to reach his home the latter part of April. Lieutenent Woods' first assignment on waster was on a gunboat cruising off the coast of the Philippine islands and three years was spent in the water surrounding those islands. When death claimed the young officer, the remains were started on the homeward trip, the cruise taking about two months.
