Frank Dill, second son of Thomas Dill, formerly of Attica, while stealing a ride on a Big Four freight train dropped between the cars at Danville, Ill., last Saturday and was cut in two. The coupling of the cars, between which he was standing, was broken, precipitating him to the track, where the rear section passed over his body. The remains were taken to Veedersburg where his father now lives. The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Pence died at the home of her parents in Jordan Township Sunday, May 5th, after twenty-four hours of intense suffering. The little one was born April 29th and lived only to see the light of six bright days. She has but gone up higher where the father and mother may later ascend. Through this medium they desire to extend their thanks to all sympathizing and assisting friends. Mary Jane Clearwater, wife of Josephus Clearwater, departed this life May 10th, 1895 at 3:30 p.m. Mrs. Clearwater was teh daughter of Harrison and Hannah Price of Clinton County, Ohio, and was born October 12th, 1840. She was united in marriage to Josephus Clearwater and removed with him from Clinton County, Ohio in 860 to Stark County, Indiana. In 1862 she united with the United Bretheren Church of which she was a constant member until Feb. 1895 when she united with the newly formed Presbyterian Church of indiana Mineral Springs, to which place she and her family had removed a few years ago. She leaves a husband, two sons and three daughters to mourn her loss. She died from stomach trouble being ill but eleven days. Her death was the first death among the membership of the Indiana Mineral Springs Presbyterian Church and the members of that organization deeply sympathize with the family in their loss. She was distinguished for her Christian example and strong faith, and hope of eternal life. She has gone "To be with Christ which is for better." Dear brothers and sisters will you meet her "Over There?"
