Harrison W. Larch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theo Larch, was buried at Mound Cemetery near Pine Village at 3 p.m. last Saturday. The funeral services were conducted from Union Chapel by Rev. Rogers. Miss Maud Bowlus, daughter of Reverdy I. Bowlus, died at the home of her parents near this place Sunday night after comparatively a short illness from consumption. Some four or five months ago, we are informed, Miss Bowlus, who is about seventeen years old, took the la grippe from which she never recovered, and which resulted in hasty consumption. Maud was an unusually bright girl and loved by all who knew her. The funeral services conducted by the Rev. Myers took place from the family residence southwest of this place at 1 o'clock p.m., Tuesday, after which the remains were laid to their long unbroken rest in the West Lebanon Cemetery. The family has the sympathies of all in their deep sorrow. Died, February 13th, 1895, Newton Shatell, aged 13 years, 10 months and 25 days. He was a bright and happy boy, loving his home, friends, and school. He had been ailing for several weeks, but desiring very much to go to school, his cough became worse until he took to his bed never more to rise. While sick he sang several songs, being very fond of music and prayed asking to go Home. His obidence and devotion to duty, such as he had to perform according to his years, will make him sadly missed by his mother, sister and brothers at home. His genial temper was such that you never hesitated to ask him to do a favor if necessary. His favorite hymns were "At the Cross" and "Meet Me There." He was a regular attendant at church and Sunday school, enjoying both.
