season," was garnered with the good wheat in his Master's Kingdom. In domestic
life he was affable and of a condescending and obliging disposition. Inflexible
in principal and honest and upright in heart. He has been in the employ
of J.M. Funk for nearly 18 years and has always been true and faithful
to any trust which Mr. Funk confided in him. The funeral took place Friday

after which his remains were laid to rest in Green Mount Cemetery.
He has ended life's career,
Filled his noble mission here,
Fought the fight, the vict'ry gained
And the crown of life obtained.
Cease ye mourners to lament,
'Tis the message Jesus sent,
For his servant just and true,
To that land beyond the blue.

Yet a little while and ye
Face to face with him shall be;
He from labor's now at rest
In the mansions of the blest.
Sin no more will strive to reign
O'er this body racked with pain,
Nor the wicked ne'er annoy--
All with him is peace and joy.
There he'll with his children meet--
Jewels at the Savior's feet--
And with all the blood-bought throng
Sing redemption's precious song.
A FRIEND
