Seymour Alkire of Pine Township died at Brookston, where he was receiving treatment for black erysipelas at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning. He was a cousin of J. W. Alkire of this city and was thirty-one years of age. The funeral servies took place from the Golboa Church Wednesday. --Ambia News The gates opened and little Allie stepped in. She had patiently waited for months for the summons and was prepared. The strongest of earthly ties made this world a pleasant place; the kindest and most loving of earthly friends clung to her, which made departure harder. So God in His goodness spared the loved sufferer the trial of parting and took her to Himself almost without warning. Allie had been a sufferer for a long time and patiently bore her affliction. It was the writer's good fortune to be personally acquainted with her from childhood up to the day of death, and can speak from both personal knowledge and report of friends of the sterling worth and goodness of her life. Kind, gentle, lovable, uncomplaining; always looking to the comforts of those about her, seeming to forget self in her thought for others. As a daughter, seh was obedient and affectionate. AS a wife and mother, she was perfection. As a wife and mother, she had no superior. There is a place in her once happy home that can never be filled until the family are reunited in that glorious land where parting is no more. Let her example be to the bereaved husband and dear little children a beacon light guiding and directing them in the path of duty until they shall be called to meet with her. Alice Perry was born February 12, 1863. She was the daughter of the late Levi Leslie. She was married to John Perry, a prominent man of Liberty Township, Warren County, Indiana, December 5th, 1884; died September 2nd, 1895, leaving a husband and three children, one child having preceded her. The children's' names are; Wyatt C., Charles H, Guy E. and Hazel H. She very much desired that the children should attend Sunday school and be trained in those moral principles which would make them useful members of society and fit them for a higher life beyond the grave. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Myers of Williamsport at the family residence near the Cameron and Hunter Springs, September 4th, after which the remains were followed by a large concourse of mourning relatives and friends to the Goodwin Cemetery and there laid to rest. In loving remembrance of Clara, aged 20 years, beloved daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Wilson, who departed from this life on Thursday morning, September 5th at 4 o'clock, after an illness of several months. She had an attack of la grippe last winter, which resulted in hasty consumption. Clara was a lovely girl, beautiful and accomplished. She was the light of home and it makes the home sad and desolate to give her up. But she has gone to a fairer, sweeter world than this, and our loss is her eternal gain. She leaves a father, mother, three sisters, three brothers and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn her untimely departure. She was a student of the Normal School at Covington until her health became so poor that her father brought her home, much against her inclinations, as she was very desirous of getting a good education. The funeral concourse was over half a mile in length. The pallbearers were six young ladies, friends of the deceased. She was laid to rest, sweet eternal rest, under the green grass in the West Lebanon Cemetery, and the birds of the summer sing their songs in the trees over her grave, and the cool breezes of September chant a sad requiem over hermortal remains. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Joseph Hagerly, who died of consumption, was buried last Thursday.
