Died at her residence in Danville, Saturday one week ago of cancer of the stomach, Mrs. Mary A. Conner. She leaves a husband, three sons and two daughters, viz: Louis and Charles of Danville and Frank of Bethany, Ill., and Annie and Allie of Danville. The funeral took place from the residence Monday afternoon. The deceased was a former reisident of this place and a sister of Mr. P. W. Lewis. The infant son of Elmer Walker, which was adopted upon the death of its mother last spring by Mr. and Mrs. J. Brook of Attica, died at the Latter's home in Attica last Wednesday evening of cholera infantum, after a struggle of twelve days with the terrible disease. The funeral services took place Saturday, after which interment took place in the West Lebanon Cemetery. Samuel M. Frame, Sr., died at Danville, Ill., last Saturday morning Sept. 17th, where he had gone for medical treatment for a cancerous growth on his hand. The immediate cause of his demise was an overdose of morphine, which he has taken late Friday evening to relive his intense suffering. The body was embalmed at Danville and was brought to his residence here on the fast line Saturday night. The funeral services took place from the Christian Church of which he was an honored member, last Monday afternoon at two o'clock by Rev. John A. Mavity, after which the mortal remains were laid in their resting place at West Lebanon Cemetery grounds. Mr. Frame was born Sept 27th, 1817 and died Sept. 17, 1892, aged 74 years, 11 months and 20 days. Our citizens were pained to learn on Wednesday morning last of the death of Edward Harvey, son of Thomas Harvey of Attica. Ed was a locomotive engineer, employed on the Rock Island Railway, and being caught between a moving engine and the walls of the shop, was so badly crushed that his death was the consequence. His body was brought to Attica on Tuesday evening and buried on Thursday last. He was an excellent young man, had many friends to whom the news of his sad death will cause their hearts to sorrow and to the parents and other relatives they offer their deepest sympathy. Mr. Harvey was a son-in-law of Wm Slauter Sr., formerly of this county but one of Potomac, Ill., and our people greatly sympathize with the young wife in her sorrows.
