Thomas Grames, living in Pine Township, aged 62 years, died at his home last Monday from catarrh of the stomach, after an illness of 5 months. Funeral services were held at the Rainsville Church yesterday at 2 o'clock p.m., Rev. Wm Wilmer officating. Deceased was a brother fo Mrs. James Anderson of this place. Albert Warner Deceased was born in Liberty Yownship, Warren county, Ind., April 5th, 1875, and died at the home of his parents in that township on Friday, June 30th, 1899, aged 24 years, 2 months and 25 dyas. He had been ill since August 1898, from lung trouble, the result of catarrh in the head. He had, all his life, followed farming, helping his father. When he grew too feeble to work he turned his attention to preparing himself for illustrating and sketching for newspapers and had been a student twenty weeks. He finally had to give this up. About fourteen years of his life, from 1881 to 1895, he lived with his father in Kansas. During his illness he was under the care of Drs. DeHart and DeLancey of this place, Case of Attica and Bernard of Rainsville. The funeral services were held at Elm Grove Church last Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. L. C. Bentley of this place preaching the discourse. Interment was made in the Schoonover Cemetery. Elias E. Schlosser Deceased was the son of John H. and Minerva Schlosser and was born on the home farm, two miles west of this place, August 9th, 1869, and departed this life Thursday, June 29th, 1899, aged 29 years, 10 months and 20 days. Elias was a young man of exemplary habits and was loved and respected by a large circle of friends. He was genial, orderly and kind, and affectionate to all. His whole life was spent on the home farm of his parents. He was taken ill in August 1898 and was a patient sufferer for almost ten months, and uncomplainingly laid down his life when the time came. All that medical skill and loving hands could do, or thoughtful hearts could suggest was done to alleviate his sufferings and prolong his life, but all proved of no avail, and when the summons came the obedient son, loving brother, true hearted friend was committed into the hands of the Allwise Father who will render unto him his due reward. The funeral services were held at the family residence Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Eli Myers of Argos, Ind., officiating, assisted by Rev. George H. Clarke of this place. The attendance of the friends of the family was very large. The remains were interred in the West Lebanon Cemetery in the family lot. The pallbeareres were: Joel Sutton, Jacob Wolfe, Horace Thomas, O C. Rabourn, B. C. Shannon and Amos Ringel.
