The infant child of Jacob Brandenburg was taken suddenly ill Saturday with cholera infantum and died Sunday. The funeral was held Tuesday and interment took place at West Lebanon. Mrs. Mary Longley died at 2 o'clock at her home in this place Wednesday morning after a long illness from consumption. The funeral services will be held from the M. E. Church at 2 p.m. today. Sup't W. H. Hershman and family of Attica, on being notified of the death of Rev. R. F. Edmondson, came over and spent the afternoon with S. C. Hanson and family Saturday. Sup't Hershman is a nephew of the late Rev. Edmondsons. Benjamin S. Hurd died Sunday, August 6th at 7:45 p.m., of blood poisoning. Mr. Hurd had been sick but a few days and his death was very sudden. Several days ago he slightly cut his hand, but thought nothing of the accident until it began to give him considerable trouble, when it was found out that blood poison had resulted from the wound. The funeral services were conducted from the church Tuesday, Rev. Wilmer of Williamsport officiating. After the funeral services the body was taken to Rainsville for burial. Mr. Hurd was born May 30, 1839, at Newport, N. H., and has been a resident of this state since 1875, removing to Williamsport from Illinois in that year. He has lived here since 1889, and was well respected by all who knew him. He was twice married and four children by his first wife survive him. By his second wife, three children were born, two of which are still living. The sympathy of the entire community is with his widow in this hour of bereavement. -Oxford Tribune
