causing him to cough freely at night.
The last day and night he had no pain.
He had his right mind until noon before
he died, and was ready and anxious to
so. After that he did not talk and seem­
ed to sleep himself away. He had been
a member of th£ M. £. church about 50
years, and was looked up to and respect­
ed by friends and neighbors as an upright
conscientious Christian.
His remains were brought to the resi­
dence of John Bryan, the neighbor near
est the old homestead, by his son John
Harris, where the funeral services were
conducted by Rev. S. H. Dewart, Sunda}*,
March 4. He was buried by the side of
his wife and two sons in the cemetery at
Cedar City.
He leaves four sons. A, W. and John
E. Harris at Sibley, Iowa, George F. Har­
ris at Hartland, Minn., and Cnarles Har­
ris at Ruthven, Iowa.

This is to certify that the Masons' Fra­

Mass., of which I am a member, has paid
me promptly in full for injuries received
while on duty as a locomotive engineer.
In fact my claim was paid 60 days before
it was due, but immediately upon my ap
plication for the same. I wish to hereby
recommend this accidental company to
all Masons, as the cheapest accidental
company I know of, and is a worthy, re­

ministering to the relief of brother Ma­
sons when in need of aid. L. G. Basford
