Auten, the attendance giving evidence of the general degree of respect and affection with which deceased was regarded in the community. The procession was beaded by the Knights of Honor, of which Mr. Auten was a member. The services opened with tbe hymn, "The Home over There," scripture reading by RflV- J. A. Scarntt, of Jerseyville, and prayer by Rev. Mr. Waggoner, of Upper Alton. The hymn •Refuge" was then rendered. Mr. Scarntt, alter remarking that "human utterances cannot make a scene like this more impressive," took for bis text part of tbe 14th verse of tbe 4th chapter ot James; "For what is your life?" making the uncertain*, ty of life the lesson to be learned t'-om [tbe afflictive dispensation. He stated that Mr. Auten and M'ss Matilda Hicks were married April 27th, 1848. After 28 years of happy wedded life tbe wife died, leaving three children. In February, 1981, J. A. Auten and Miss Mary J. MoAdams, were united in matrimony. Deceased became a member of the M. E. church in Feb. '81, and his faithfulness made it peculiarly ap. proprlato that his pew be draped in black on the occasion of his funeral. Closed with tbe hymn "It is well with my soul." The casket was crowned with two beautiful bouquets. The bearers were Messrs. Louis H&agen, E. Levii, H. C. Priest, H. M. Carr, F. H. Lehne, H. M. Schwepp».
