At the funeral of Mr. Jeseph Douglass, which was attended by a very large concourse of old neighbors and friends at the Betheny church in Clay township on the eight of the present month, the following tribute to his memory was read by Rev. Dr. Putnam wbo conducted the services: Joseph Douglass was born in Darke County, Ohio March 1, 180S; died April 6th. 1881, 83 years of age. The family as the name indicates, was of Scotch antecedents, the father Capt. David Douglass betraying that fact by the characteristic Scotch accent. J»;eph Douglass was one of a large family of children, four of whom, all advanced in years, eurvice him, Willlam Douglas, Mrs. Nancy Barnett, Mrs. Covault and Mrs. Dunkle. He began the battle of life at an early age. Seeking a home in the new state of Indiana he emigrated to the Wabash valley and here in the then almost unbroken wilderness, he began to make for himself a home. His memory of incidents connected with his early life here was very clear and accurate. His fund of anecdotes of pioneer days was well nigh inexhaustible, but his memory of dates was singularly defective. Hence it is uncertain just the year when he first came to Cass County. It is certain that he was a mere lad, probably seventeen or eighteen years of ajre, and came -with a company of surveyors who were running a line for a projected canal. He came to make his permanent home here about 1829. He was in the employ of the government at different times, to farm for the Indians, as was then the plan. In this work he became well acquainted with the Indians for whom he often expressed the deepest sympathy. In 1833 he was married and brought his young bride to his farm. A little log cabin was their home. A dense growth of timber hid the soil that was to yield them their living. Scarcely a single native tree stands on that land to-day. One by one they gave way before his strudy stroke; the corn field and the wheat field crept up to the shade of the edge of the forest, and then the line of timber fell back to a new position; and then the wheat field came forward, and so it went on year after year until patient, persistent toil won the strug. gle. But he never ceased his wofk till the last. Idleness was a crime in his eyes. He had no patience with a shirk: When his last illness came to him, it found him at work. His integrity of character was beyond question. It is told that once when he visited Gen. - Tipton, Indian agent, to get the money due him for work, Gen. Tipton rolled a keg of money from under hia bed, where he was keeping it till pay day.and said, "Now Joe, go take out what I owe you." Mr. Douglas 1 first wife died in 1851 and in 1853 he married Miss Harriet Pu£fh. who still survives. It is needless to say much about his personal traits and character. Everybody kcei? "Uncle Joe". All his faults are far out-balanced by his least virtue, and to-day we remember his thousand kind acts toward his family, friends and neighbors.. We remember his sympathy for tnose in trouble, sympathy that he was quick to measure with dollars; we remember his lore of truth; we remember his loyalty; we remember tha.t no one today is poorer that he might be richer. No one ever hungered that he might eat. We all now and always will remember the patient father, the kind brother, the ever helpful Uncle Joe. with his mother. Mr. Middleton was prominent in local Masonic circles being late W. M. of Tiptoa Lodge, F. and A. M. His funeral will be conducted under the auspices of this lodge to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, services at the house, by Rev. E. S. Scott, of the Broadway Presbyterian church. Interment in Mt. Hope cemetery- Two Funny Men. Barry and Fay are names that stand for all that is humorous and eccentric in the Irishman.of the modern stage. They are essentially of that class of characters which is developed io the son of the green isle who makes America his adopted land. We all know them, know their wit, humor,^shrewdness and infections jollity. Barry and Fay are conspicuously ;the leading- stage types of this style of character. These admirable artists will be seen at the opera house to-morrow evening in their funny play, "McKenna's Flirtation," the piece in which they made their phenomenal run of 175 nights ai the Park Theatre, New York City, last season. Included in the company supporting these comedians are the latest importations the Misses Coog-y.n and Gorman, late of the London, Eng., music hall, who will introduce their terpsichorean novelty called the "Butterfly Dance." Their grace and beauty has been highly indorsed by the New York press where they made their first appearance in this country four weeks ago. Merit Wins. We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been selling Dr£ King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Pills, Buck? len's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satisfaction. We do not hesitate in guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the pur chase price, if satisfactory results do not net follow their use. These remedies have won their great popularity purely on their merits. B. F. Keesling Druggist. 1 Services at the Baptist church at 10:30 a. m.,preaching by Rev. W. H. H.

In the death of David Middleton, sr., Logansport has lost one of its most conspicuous figures, and the tall and commanding presence of the old gentleman will be long missed on the streets of the city. Although his long and hopeless illness had prepared his friends for his death, yet the demise of Mr. Middleton is none the less universally regretted in this community —in a community in which he had "been an active 'figure for so many years. Everybody knew Dave. Middleton, and to know him was to hold him in respect. As an officer of the law twecty-five years ago Mr. Middleton created for him- Belf a reputation that was more than State wide, and while serving as Marshal of Logansport and in other public capacities he became a terror to evil doers which became a local proverb. To the toughs and bums which once infested the city Mr. Middleton was a continual and powerful menace, and the fear of his "setting his foot on 'em" deterred many a criminal from acts of lawlessness. Although his advancing years retired .him from active life sometime -. ago, yet he remained even to his' death a. strong factor iu local affairs and his death has removed a citizen whose memory'will livelong after him. David Middleton was born in Sligo. Ireland'July 1, 1818, was therefore nearly 73 years of age. He cam'e to America in '38, settling at Quebec, where he was employed in railroad service . for some years coming here in 1859. He was citjr Marshall of Logansport from '63 to Wand did much toward cleaning out a worthless element of society here. He was married to Elizabeth Goodwin at Detroit April 18. 1859.. .Two children were born to_ their union, a soa David Middleton, jr., surviving together Commendable. ; A11 claims not consistent with the high character of Syrup of Figs are purposely avoided by the California Fig SyrupjjCompany.
