Yea, at last he ardently longed for deliverance and to be with tho Lord forever. This God granted him at the above stated time. He calmly and peaceably fell asleep, as we have good reason to hope, iu the Lord. His funeral took place Thurs day morning from the Ev. Luth.

After religious services his body was laid to rest in the old cemetery to await the mourn of resurrection. His widow, 8 children and two grandchildren mourn their sc-severe Iosp. May the Lord of all riches and consolation abundantly console them in their bereave ment. j i is recently
