He was in his 57th year, and is survived by his wife and five children, all boys, viz., William of St. Louis, Mo., Bruce of Detroit,
Floyd of Delhi, and two boys who live at home.

All were home for the funeral, which was sheld on Monday last, the remains being interred in Johnson's Cemetery.

There were many floral tributes, which expressed the respect in which the deceased was held in the community.
