Comrade Mitchell has Joined hi» many comrades of blewed memory in fhat eternal Home to which his life has been but a vestibule. Ills life and character were distinctly wholesome. It seems to me that the word "wholesome" best expresses what all found In him. It was always good for one to see hi* cheerful smile, to hear his kindly word, to be under the Influence of his generous thought. I would emphasize hi* cheerfulness and kindness of thought and his spirit of usefulness. He will be missed In his home and by the Emerson Women's Relief corps. Interment wan made In the beautiful cemet«ry where he labored so many years to keep the resting places of many who preceded him a place of admiration, and beside his wife who preceded him In death on Nov. 24, 1927.
