Elmer wat tick bnt a ihort time, having had an attack of grip but recovered sufficiently from it to go to work again. He was taken worte Wodnetday night and died the following Saturday afternoon.

Sho arrived here with the rcmaint on Monday morning and the funeral wat held from the Congregatioaal church at 11:00 A. M. on Tuetday, the interment being in the Mlnerl cemetery. Elmer, like all tho other brothers, was an exemplary young man, greatly respected by alt who know him. Ha had a good position with a wholesale firm in Chicago, and his prospects were as bright as any young man could wish. But tueh are the uneerta'.ntiet of life. While the old must die the young may alio die. "In the midst of life we are in death," and it there remains any thing to do to prepare for tho change there ihoald be no delay.
