Leroy H. Noland. The subject of this sketch was the son of James W. Noland of Brookston, Ind., where the deceased also resided at the time of his death. Mr. Noland was a section hand on the Monon road and while assisting in clearing away a wreck at Carr's Tank, he met with the accident, which caused his death. The right arm was badly crushed and he was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lafayette where an effort was made to save his arm. It was found necessary to amputate the arm just below the shoulder, though, after the patient had lingered a week, as the last resort to save his life. The shock was too much for him and he never rallied from its effects, but sank rapidly until death came on the same evening, January 13th. Mr. Noland was 33 years old and leaves a widow and two children. He was a man of noble character and real worth. At Green Hill where he resided for several years no one knew him but to respect and love him. He was a true and devoted member of the U. B. church and was always ready to perform the duties and obligations of a Christian life. His prayers, his exhortations and his worthy example will long be remembered. His familiar face will no more be seen in the Sunday school and prayer meeting where we used often to see him. But we believe he has gone to be with the angelic hosts of Heaven where the sorrows and pains of earth are unknown and where all tears are wiped away. The funeral services were held at Brookston Monday, under the auspices of the I.O.O.F., of which order Mr. Noland was a member. Rev. J. S. Cooper of Battle Ground officiated. Interment was in Davis Cemetery, Green Hill.
