Until a little over a year ago ho had spent his life in or near Postvllle, where he had very extended acquaintance. Ho was held in high esteem by all who knew him for integrity of character and sterling worth of manhood. Ho was recognized as on* of the truest, most worthy young men of tho community. Ono of tho largest funerals that Postvlllo has uvor seen Indicated tho general sorrow felt, nnd the sympathy with tho bereaved family. In his home was seen one of the most beautiful traits of Dean's chnractcr, in his attachment to his mothct and sisters. An only son, he was hl« mother's support and counsolor, the strong arm on which sho was coming to loan moro nnd more. Ho wns a truo son nnd a loyal brother. Ho was convertod nnd united with the M. E. church in Jan. '85, and remnlnod a faithful membor until his death. During his illness, though not thinking himsolf dangerous at that lime, ho spoke freely with his pasiur about his christian lifo, and expressed his love for the Bible and his faith in Ills Savior. In losing a young man of such worth we sorrow, yot wo '-sorrow not even as others which havo no hopo." To tho christian "Therc'i nothing terrible in death; 'Tis but to catt our robe away.

All (Including ladies) are cordially invited to attend. Speaking will commence at 7:30. We cannot refrain from adding n few words to the nbovo, not that all has not beon said that could be, but simply to show our own appreciation of Doan and our sympathy for the family. Wo knew him for a number of yoars, aid havo often pointed to him as a model young man, worthy of being patterned after by oyory young man in the com munlty. Kind, affnblo and gentloman ly to nil, ovoryone was irrcsistably drawn to him. His manner, his moral habits and his integrity of charnctor wcro rapidly bringing him to the front in tho business ns well as tho social world. In these fast days wo havo no such young men to spare. They are tho snit of the earth nnd tho hopu of futuro generations. We all mourn hi departure only loss keenly than his relatives. So far as he Is concerneit it is just as well. No mattor what pro parnlion may bo necessary ho was "duly and truly prepared" for tho change. Whilt years of usefulness and honor havo beon cut off hero, lie is free from corrodiug caros that must wt heavily on every life, nnd in life's early foreuoon he 1ms lain down to rest, with tho b'ossings of all nho knew him and the smiles of that providonco which he adored. Youug friend, tho tears we shed nt parting nr> not for you. Beyond tho surges of life's sea wo know if there is a harbor you havo gained an abuudnnt entrance therein. If when the darkness camo there wns a hand outstretched to savo, we know that it was clasped in yours and that it lod you safely to the further shoro nnd up tho stoops to tho o'.ornal city, and that from tho many mansions you will go no moro out forever. Bo it ours uot only to cherish your memory but to e inula to your virtues, that we too may finally lay the burden down as full of confident and trust and reueivo as glorious <i reward. • -Headquarters for Axle Grease, Gasoline, Lard.

Its great superiority over all other kinds is readily admitted by every person when once understood. The Standard's rotary shuttle has revolutionized the whole sewing machine principle and other sewing machine Oo's are paralyzed because of their inability to meet the Standard in competition. The Rotary principle is the only correct principle for a shuttle to a sewing machine. Our trade in this department is proof of what we say. Everything striotly one price. No deviation! JNO. CROSBY. .

Charles Burnham, one of the oldest residents of Franklin township, died at his home near Hardin, on Thursday, after a long and painful illness. His death has been expected for a long time, as his malady, dropsy, with other complications, was beyond the reach of medicine. Mr. Burnham was a man universally respected by all who knew him and his losi will ho greatly felt in the community. Our. sympathy Is extended to the boreaved family. —Wo rogrot lo learn that F. M.

Wo wish him abundant succoss in his new fluid of labor. Mr. Orr has filled a number of prom' inent business positions hero. For Ave years he was bookkeeper in tho Post­ vlllo Ba,nk.

Its whole shuttle race is SOLID STEEL and can be sinoss, whioh business was successfully replaoed, while on other machines the shuttle race is conducted for five yoars, when it was | ONLY OAST IRON and cannot he replaced.
