W. E. Daugherty, a former resident of Otterbein, but of late in the employ of the Burlington Railroad at Lincoln, Neb., was killed in teh railroad yards in that city on last Saturday evening by a switch engine. The funeral was conducted at Lincoln on Monday. The deceased was highly respected and had a large number of friends. The little infant of Nute Nipe and wife died last Wednesday and was laid to rest in the Gopher Hill Cemetery. It has only gone to prepare a home for its loved ones. Though it seems hard to part with our loved ones, we have the hope of seeing them in the happy world above, where death no more can take our cherished ones from our side. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved parents. The death of Mrs. Bowers occurred at Mr. J. Nicholson's, near this place Tuesday 19th inst. Mrs. Bowers was the sister of Mrs. Nicholson. Funeral was the next day at 11 o'clock, after which interment was made at Locust Grove, Ind. They have the sympathy of all. Cledah May Grames, little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm Grames died the morning of the 23rd. She was about five years old and a favorite of all who knew her. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. Wilmer of Attica Monday at the M. E. Church in this place. Interment was made in teh Rainsvile Cemetery. A deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved in their grief. Mrs. Hettie Bowers was born in Tippecanoe County April 30, 1846. She was the daughter of Julia and Jeremiah Stanley. She was married to John Bowers in 18__, from which union four children were born three boys and one girl. She has been a sufferer with lung trouble for some time and not long since had the measles, which proved too much for her delicate health. She was ready for the Master's call and told her friends where she wished they might lay her to rest. She gently fell asleep Tuesday the 19th at 8:30 o'clock. The day with its busy hours was ended, and as the evening shadows gathered, the life of one so dear, whose feet had walked with patience this long pathway of life bade us a gentle good night to meet us in the better world "in the morning." Two sisters, Mrs. J. Nicholson living near this place, at whose home she died, and Mrs. Cynthia Ballinger of Boise City Idaho, and four children survive her. The remains were laid to rest in the Locust Grove Cemetery Wednesday.
