eight years old. The news Of his death
casts a glcom over the entire cemmun
ity, where he was well known and
highly esteemed as an henest, indus
trious, worthy citizen. While his death
is a shock to many who had not heard
of his declining health, yet it was
known to many of his friends that for
the last year he had been in ill health.
He recently had an attack of stomach
trouble and on Friday spoke of having
a headache. As has been-his custom of

Mrs. Ellen Brum bach, where other
relatives and friends were awaiting the
coming of the bearers, and also of Mrs.

were waiting at the Bridge, and at
about 3 p. m. Sunday, he was laid to
