At his home near Hedrick, Wednesday morning, Oct. 4th, 1893, just as anew day was dawning, his spirit took its flight. He was 25 years, 4 months and 25 days of age. He was sick only a few days, but during that sickness he was patient, loving and kind, always remindful of his friends least they should weary themselves waiting upon him. The following named young men, his associates, were the pallbearers: James Anderson, James Partley, Charles Cronkhite, Isaac Graham, John Graham, Arthur Hefferman, Robert Dawson and Henry O'Ferrel, who, with the relatives and a large number of friendsaccompanied the remains to Attica, where the funeral services were conducted by Father Lemphfer at the St. Francis Church, after which the body was laid to rest.

Little Dave Phipps, son of Mrs. Sarah Phipps of Liberty Township, died at his home of dropsy, Sunday morning, Oct. 1st, 1893. Davie was a good boy, patient through all his suffering, and will be sadly missed by all his friends. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family, especially his mother, who watch by his beside four months. His remains were laid to rest in the Keister cemetery Oct. 2d. The eldest daughter of Wm Bailey (about 15 years old), of Pond grove, was buried at Independence Sunday. Wm Moore of Otterbein, ex-treasurer of Benton County, died Friday, October 6th. He was buried at Armstrong on Sunday the 8th, Revs. Smith and Dougherty officiating. He was in his 77th year. His disease was kidney trouble. He lived in Warren and Benton Counties sixty years and was a Christian gentleman in all his relations of life. He leaves a wife, 72 years old, three daughters and one son, with a host of life long friends to mourn his loss. A noble man and sincere Christian has gone from us to inherit the reward laid up for the truthful. Mr. John Johnston and wife buried their little girl Sunday. She was about fourteen months old and was always delicate. She has gone to bloom in eternal health. It is hard to give these little ones up, but we can meet them in the sweet bye and bye.
