Griffin died at his borne on South Walnut street, at 3 o'clock Friday morning. Mr. Griffinfhad been in declining health since last February, at which time he contracted a severe cold, attended with a distressing cough and enfeebled powers of endurance. With remarkable resolution and strength o f purpose, he however continued . his daily voca tion up to about three months ago, although constantly deteriorating in health and strength and less able each day to take up his burden of duty. He gradually grew weaker, until ex hausted nature yielded to the insidious advances of bis ailment, and prostrated him in final help lessness on the bed where he patiently lay for six weeks, submissively awaiting the end. His sickness assumed no definite character, but seemed to be a general breaking down of the system a gradual waning of life's energies until the lamp of existence went out. His ail ment was painless and of that subtle operation that disguised the rapid approach of its final consummation, almost to the end. ' Calmly and resignedly he bowed to the High er Will, and closed his eyes to the dear faces and familiar scenes of the home he loved so well, with a trusting heart, and a faith that gave to him the blessed assurance of an eternal home beyond the bounds of mortal life. His funeral was held from the house, Monday at 2 o'clock p. m., at which Rev. S. W. Meek officiated, assisted by Rev. Henry D. Stauffer. Orlando Henry Griffin was born in Vernon, Oneida county. New York, October 5th, 1817 Of four sons and two daughters born to his father and mother, A. B. Griffin, of this city, a brother of the deceased, alone survives. When a young man he learned the tool makers trade in Utica, N. Y., at that time one of the best of the mechanical occupations. An important event in the civil history of the country occurred in the year 1838, while he was yet a resident of Utica. This was the comple tion of the railroad extending from that city to Schenectady, N. Y., being one of the pioneer roads, and the first line of any importance to commerce and travel. To befittingly commem orate the great achievement grand celebration was held at Albany, to which the officials of the road invited the Mayor and Council of Utica, together with other officials and dignitaries of the place, including the " Citizens' Corps and Band," giving them a free excursion to Albany and return. Mr. Griffin was a member of the " Corps and Band " above referred to, and as such, accompanied the distinguished party to Albany on the memorable occasion. This Band was the first one organized in Utica, and made its initial appearance on the streets of that city January 1st, 1838, the day on which the exciting news reached the place of the capture of the American steamboat " Caroline " an incident of the " Patriot war " in Canada. From Utica he went to Rochester, where he worked at his trade about six months. In June, 1839, he came to Ravenna, O., and. commenced working at his trade with F. K. Collins, in the building on Spruce street now occupied by Jas. Brooks as a blacksmith and repair shop. They continued the business together until the death of Mr. Collins in 1843, when Mr. Griffin carried it on alone for several years, until the introduc tion of machinery destroyed his trade. He then went to work in the old hub factory, at that time operated by tbe Ravenna Carriage Company, and subsequently by H. & A. Stowe, who became its proprietors, and lastly by A. B. Griffin, who still owns the plant. Here Mr. Griffin remained continuously until physical disability compelled him to retire about three months ago. He was a man of great and unceasing indus try, taking few holidays from the duties and re sponsibilities of the position he filled so well and so long. Few men quit this world with such a record of faithful, conscientious service. June izth, 1843, he was married in Ravenna to Miss Louisa Chase, who came here from Maryland, N. Y. This was within two days of the marriage of A. B. Griffin, the death of whose wife we were called upon so recently to chronicle. For fifty years O. H. Griffin and his wife lived together in affectionate union, exem plifying the highest conceptions of the marriage covenant. Two children were bom to them only one of whom Dr. C. H. Griffin, of this city is left to mourn with his widowed mother the loss of a kind husband and father. Their daughter, Mary L., died in Youngstown, March 23, 1883 the wife of John Treudley. Soon after attaining his majority Mr. Griffin became a member of the Baptist Church in Utica, N. Y.; but there being no society of that denomination in Ravenna at the time he came here, he became a regular attendant at the Congregational Church, in the choir of which he played a flute for sixteen years. Mrs. Grif fin, who was also a member of the Baptist soci ety, became an active member of the Congre gational choir with her husband, contributing her services an equal length of time. An effort was made at one time to establish a Baptist church in Ravenna, and Mr. and Mrs. Griffin both identified themselves with the new society, but after a short existence the organization was disbanded for lack of members, and they return ed to the Congregational church, in which they were constant and valued workers and attend ants. Mr. Griffin was a man who lived a life deserv ing of the highest eulogy. Perhaps in no one particular could be pointed out any distinguish ing excellence, but it was this very uniformity of character that commended his living to his fellow-men.

To the ills of human life he was superior, and never allowed his faith in God and humanity to wane by reason of any visitation or experience.JHebelievedJin a'Divine Providence and in the better nature of mankind, and misfortune and evil were alike powerless to modify his convictions. He profited by all that fell to his lot, and imparted new strength and hope to others by the example of his own grace and fortitude. He was a man of high intelligence, good judgment, and strong mental endowmens, all of which he employed successfully in the practical affairs of life, but subordinating them all to the service of the higher moral attributes. He pos sessed an equanimity and happiness that came from a compliance with the simple conditions of Christian living, and so ordered his ways and habits that he reaped the greatest amount of good out of life as. he went along and bright ened and blessed at the same time those with whom he had to do or associate. His affections were deep and abiding, his heart open to sym pathy and relief, and his character was adorned with all the gentle, homely virtues of tbe kindly souled friend and neighbor. In the death of,Mr.Griffin the community has lost a valued resident and a most useful citizen, the example Of whose fidelity and upright life is an inheritance Of common benefit.

A Thief at Larre. Last Wednesday afternoon E. P. Mertz, B. & 0. Agent at this place, prepared his daily remit tance, amounting to $99 38, to send to headquar ten on east bound train due at 2:03. After seal ing the money in an envelope he placed it in a box attached to the south wall of the offioe, while he and his assistant. Perry Shrop, went out to attend to passenger train No. 3, which had just arrived. This was shortly after 12 o'clook, and they were not away from the office to exceed three minutes. On his return he at once went to the box for the money, and was greatly aston ished and nonplussed to find that it was not there. After a thorough search and inquiry, he was forced to the conclusion that it had been stolen, which theory became a settled faot a little later on. by an examination of the floor or sill of the ticket window, on which were plainly Been a number of scratehes made by the feet of someone who had entered the office through the aperture. Joseph Thomas, a B. 4 0. deteotive. happened to arrive about the time of the theft, but he was unable to discover any definite clue to the anthor of the crime. It was ev idently the work of some one who had watched the Agent place the money in the box. and while he was busy attending to train 3, quickly erawled in through the window opening, took the money, and made his exit at the rear, into the freight department, the outside doors of which were open. This is a most unfortunate occurrence, as un der the rules of the Company, Mr. Merts will have to stand the loss. He has been a most faithful, hard working official, and that the mis erable outcast who committed the theft may be discovered and brought to speedy justice, is at present all the oonsolation left him. A story comes np from the Welte House, just opposite the Erie depot, to the effect that one of the female members of the family discovered an individual who had been staying at the place, in the aet of trying to " even up " his accounts by attempting to help himself from the money drawer. She gave an immediate alarm, on which tbe ohap beat a hasty retreat, and a moment later when confronted by the irate Welte. very oooly reasoned the proprietor out of all suspicion that he was the guilty party, and shortly afterward took his departure.

Creasinger's singing, we select two as speoimens : We hare been acquainted for years with S. P. Creasinger. the anthor of " Billows of Song." He is a very liberal gentleman in his gifts to be nevolence and charity ; is a gentleman of large Intellect, genial countenance, pleasing address and perfect physique, standing over six feet in height, and weighing over two hundred and for ty pounds- One of tbe most remarkable features connected with the anthor is, that he has never taken vocal or instrumental lessons.but the words and musio have come to him spontaneously and harmoniously on the line of inspiration, and are striotly original. He has written hundreds of songs, and as a noted pastor once said, he may be called a " fountain of song." Weekly Crite rion, Los Angeles, March 5, 1892. Singer of Sacekd Song. An evangelical song servioe was held last night at the Central Avenue Methodist Church, which was conduoted by S. P. Creasinger. of California. It was largely at tended, and so feelingly were the selections ren dered by the singer that the audience was swayed at his will. He meets with phenomenal sucoess wherever he goes. f Indianapolis (Ind ) Journal.
