ART departed this life, after an illness
of only five days. Ile was in the (7th
year of his life. In him our county
lost a good citizen; his neighbors a
true friend, and his wife and children

From boyhood the writer was acquaint

and truthful man have I known. lin
every way possible did he minister to
the wants and necessities of his fellow
men, and not with Intention of extort
ing, but from pure kindness of heart.
An allwise Creator sawv fit to remove
him from the faimily circle, and we are
consoled with the hope, that he has
joined his dear daumghter in the hmaveni
of rest. A FIEND.
