There is no doubt as to Cornelius' sal

His memory will always be cherished.

CAMP CLERK DIES
Dr. Wells of Erie, After 30
Years Membership, Had'Paid
Less Than Face of Policy.
Dr. II. K. Wells, who claimed the
honor of being the oldest local camp
clerk In the Modern Woodmen of
America, is dead at his home in Erie,
111. Notice has been received at the
head office. He Is a member of camp
No. 14 at Erie and had been connect
ed with that camp for within two
months of 30 years. He was a charter
member and the first clerk of tha
camp, serving till last fall. His age
at the time of death was 86 years of
age, he having joined the society
when 59 years old.
Notwithstanding the advanced age
at which Dr. Wells joined the society
I -mrt (hr fart that hn wan a memher for
nearly 30 years, he paid into the bene
fit fund but $1,203.90, while the
amount of his benefit certificate is
? 2,000. Payment of the claim on his
death will leave a deficiency in the
benefit fund of $796.10, which must
be paid by surviving members of the
society. This case, therefore, fur
nishes a striking bit of proof of the
j act lriat this great fraternal organ!
zation cannot long continue on its
