Harper and family were called to Frankfort, Ind., Tuesday by the death of his sister, Mrs. Messler, who has been seriously ill for some days. Mrs. Mary Hickman, wife of the late Peter Hickman, one of the old settlers of the east part of the county, died at the home of Mrs. N. L. Little Saturday evening. The funeral services conducted by teh Rev. D. A. Rodgers were held Tuesday at ten o'clock from the Bethel Church. The funeral of Milton Hartz was held from the Carbondale Church, conducted by the Rev. J. P. Shagley at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The burial services were under the direction of Sherman Lodge, K of P, of which he was a member. Interment took place in Hillside Cemetery. Members of a number of lodges participated and a large circle of friends were in attendance. Milton H. Hartz, the fourth son of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Hartz was born Dec. 11, 1872 and died at the home of his parents in Liberty Township, Wednesday morning, Feb. 10, 1897, at 10:30 o'clock of typhoid fever, aged 24 years, 1 month, 30 days. He was attending school at Valparaiso, Ind., when stricken with this terrible disease and returned home only a few days before the death angel came and beckoned him to that long home where dwell the happy and righteous and the weary are at rest. Milton was a good boy, a dutiful son, loved and respected by all. In his youth he gave himself to God, having united with the M. E. Church at Valparaiso, Ind., the winter of 1890. He will be sadly missed in his home, and among his young associates, but we weep not as those who have no hope. He leaves a father, mother, three sisters, four brothers, and many friends to mourn his death. The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church at Carbondale, Tuesday, Feb. 16, 1897, at 10 a.m. conducted by Rev. Shagle after which interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. Thus ends a noble life just begun.
