The family of Dr. Hays of Hillsboro, Ind., was poisoned last Sunday from eating canned chicken. Two of the family had died, and two others are said to be in a dangerous condition. Andy O'Brien died Sunday night at 10 o'clock from consumption. Funeral services are at Attica Tuesday. Mrs. Mirium Homan died at the residence fo her son, James Homan, in Ambia, Ind., on Wednesday, March 14th, 1894, at 11:45 p.m., after six weeks of intense suffering. Mirium Condrey was born in Boone County, Ohio, May 12th, 1827, and was married to Emanuel Homan, July 9th, 1843. Her husband departed his life July 18th, 1884. Six children survive them- Mrs. Ollie Robb, Williamsport, Ind.; Mrs. Achsa Rockenfield, Palestine, Ill,; Mrs. Mary Myers, Streator, Ill.; Mrs. Dora Fix, New Hebron, Ind.; Mrs. Clara Allen and James Homan of Ambia, Ind., all of whom were around her bedside for a week previous to her death. She tried all her life to live a Christian, being a member of the M. E. Church during her young life until the fall of 1868, when she joined the Christian Church and remained steadfast in the faith until the end. While her children stood at her bedside, she prayed and tried to sing her old time hymns, which are now almost forgotten. She was highly respected by all who knew her. Her "earth life" is a living monument, well worthy the imitation of her children and those about her. The funeral took place from the M. E. Church in Ambia, Ind., on Friday, March 16th, at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Broomfield of Boswell, Ind., and the body was laid to rest in Locust Grove Cemetery, followed by a large concourse of friends. "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord."
