One of the oldest residents in the Upper 1'eninsula and of the copper country, Mr. John Light, died at his home at Lake Linden yesterday at noon after an illness extending back for tbe pat eighteen months, but which w as not considered serioos until lately.

When he did not return tbe pair went after him, but he was not to he found, neither was the team. Tbe only thing they could do uuder the circumstances was to walk home, which they did with a good deal of difficulty, as neither was an athlete, and a twelre-mile walk was not to tbeir taste. The pair agreed to keep the mat ter to themselves, but it was too good and one of them bad to let it out. Keweenaw Comity Politic.
