Mann occurred Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the family residence, on Riverton avenue. There was a very large concourse of friends present. The house was not "large enough to hold the people who came. The services were conducted byRev.Crowl of the Congregational church^of Sterling, who ia the pastor of the family. They were very impressive ceremonies. The singing was especially fine, being rendered by the quartette of that, church under the leadership of Mies Ella Bichhards. The remains were placed on board the Penrock passenger this, forenoon at 8 o'clock and taken to Lyridon by the family, where interment took place* in the old Lyndon burying grounds where many friends of the family lie buried. Mrs. Giles Green, the cousin and adopted slater of Mr. Mann, was present at Joe funeral from Lyndon, as well as the rest of her family. The pallbearers were Joseph Wright, F, D.

At an early sge he Was apprenticed to the moulders' trade In ShoU's foundry. After serving seven years apprenticeship he followed his £rade about fifty-five ytars. He was married July 16, 1853, to Agnes Thornton in Scotland>who died Oct. 17, 1882. Eleven children were born, only three of whoin*survive: William G., Mrs. Kate Brown, wife of Frank Brown, of this city, and Nellie T. There are also three grandchildren. In 1854 he immigrated to this country, settling at Rockford, III., where be lived until 1870, when he moved to Rock Falls, thus becoming a resident of this town only two years after its birth. Since then he had always lived here and ia well known among the older residents. He has been identified with the Methodist Episcopal church ever since he came to Rock Falls, and waa much thought of In church circles. He was also a member of the I. O. O. F., who will take charge of the funeral services to be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Methodist church. Fifteen years agu he lost his life's companion by death. Three grown up daughters have also gone before. Interment will take place at the Riverside cemetery, Sterling. Mr. Robb has not been well for. several years, and for the past year he has not been out of the house much, but it waa only the week before his death that he was conQned to his bed. He was a cheerful man and took much comfort in his religion. He was a .Christian man In every sense of the word. It was thought best to change the Tflace of servIceiTFo the church, lo.ac- commodate the large crowd of people who wish to attend. Mr. Robb leaves a sister, Mrs, James Houston, of Rockford, who, with her husband and their daughter, Mrs. Robert Graham, came last night to attend the funeral; a brother, George Robb.'of Chicago, who is expected here today or tomorrow. There is also another brother living In Scotland. The pall bearers will be three from his lodge, A. J. Burdick, A. J. McNeil and Julius Smith, and three from his old Sunday School class. At the funeral of James Robb to*-, morrow the casket will not be opened. Those who. wish to view the remains must do so at the house. GATHERING OF LITTLE ONES. Absence, even of one day in a week, dulls the edge of interest, and puts the earner at a double disadvantage This act needs emphasizing—that intern t 3 maintained and progress secured, niy by regular application to the work. ?eachere and parents should work to- ether to secure, prompt and regular ttendauce on the part of every pupil. The days, weeks, months, are rolling apidly by. Soon the end pf the school ear will have come and gone. Op- ortunity gone too.* ' * "Master ol human destinies am I; . : .

There were fifty-eight invitations sent out to children between the ages of four apd seven years and all were present but four, and these were der tamed by sickness. Fifty-four children in one group are a good many and the occasion was an interesting one in the extreme. The utmost grand matinee prevailed among them and not one cried for homesickness. Various games were gotten up J;hst all might participate in and this caused a liveliness that was enjoyable to the outsider. Shortly after 4 o'clock^ the little tots were seated around the two large rooms on the floor, and were given a fine lot of eatables. Nunfer- ous presents were given the boy by his guests.
