Azra L. Kethum died Sunday afternoon at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm Kethum in Independence. He was about 28 years old. The funeral services, conducted by Rev. D. A. Rodgers of Pine Village, were held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the church at Independence, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Independence Cemetery by the Knights of Pythias Lodge, he being a member of the Carbondale chapter. Members from Attica and Williamsport lodges were also in attendance. John Ramser, a prominent farmer of the south part of Fountain County died very suddenly while in Covington last Friday afternoon. After attending to some business for which he had come to the city, he stepped into Buckner's drug store, remarking that he felt ill, and sat down. He died almost instantly. Heart failure is attributed as the cause. Little Myrtle died at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Horatio Talbert, April 1st, 1896, aged 3 years. After suffering several weeks with lung fever she got better and was able to visit her auntie's, who lives about two blocks away. After this she took the whooping cough, which she had in the very worst form and she was not strong enough to wear it out as she had always been a very delicate child and her lungs were never strong. She was a great pet in the home, the pride of the family, and loved by all that knew her. She was a very kind and loving little child and so smart and so precious that God did not see fit to leave her in this sinful world any longer. Even when strangers would come in they would say she was nothing but a little sunshine, or something of that kind. The Lord always takes the very precious gems of this earth to make up his jewels above. How sweet it will be for you and me to meet our loved ones that's gone on before. We know that it is hard to part from the ones that we love here so well but God knows the best what to do so we must prepare to meet them above where there will be no more parting. We pray that the grandparents and mama and uncles and other loved ones will be prepared to meet her for we know it will be a happy meeting for us all. We know that God never takes any of our pleasures away without giving us something in return. We know the home is very sad without the prattling of the little tought and the patter of the little feet. We know that all that tender hearts and loving hands could do was done by the doctor and the family for this little one. We wish to thank the friends for their kindness and respect that they have shown to the family in the time of their bereavement
