Last Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock, the funeral services of little Owen Pugh Hanly, son of Hon. J. Frank and Eva A. Hanly, were held at the family residence on Falls Street in this city by Rev. J.A. Patterson, after which the remains were laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery. Little Owen was a bright, sweet child. Too bright and too good, it seemed, to remain longer in this wintry clime. He has been transplanted by the Master's hand into a more genial soil, where this bud of promise may unfold in the divine sunlight of the "bright forever." Owen was born August 29th, 1886, and died Sunday, Oct. 26, 1891, at about 5 o'clock p.m. He was taken ill some two weeks ago with diphtheria, and after close medical attention and nursing, he improved so that great hopes of his recovery were entertained. But later other complications arose; the little fellow grew much worse until death came on Sunday evening. Little Owen was permitted to brighten the home for but a trifle over five short years, but his mission of love is not ended. How much he is missed, as his little form sleeps out yonder, only the bereaved ones can know. These are sorrows where human sympathies are too weak, and where human hands cannot alleviate the pain, else they would have all been taken away. The sweet life of the child, as we dwell upon it, must point us to sweeter and higher scenes into which we may enter when our race, like his is over. The five-year-old child of Henry Keister, living in Old Town, died yesterday morning at 5 o'clock, of fever. The funeral took placfe at the Dunkard Church at 9 o'clock this morning, after which the remains were conveyed to the West Lebanon Cemetery for interment. Saturday, news reached our little village that E.F. Shelton, an old respected citizen of this place, was found dead in the field where he was plowing. His horses had run away and from what we could learn he had been killed by the team, as there were marks on his clothing to show this. Mr. Shelton was working close to Oxford. He has no family and was working by the day.
