Charles Lee and Josiah William, remain to mourn their loss beside a host of sorrowing friends and neighbors.

Mr. MIDDLETON has always lived on the farm.
He was a man among men. One who never shirked a task that was his and was
never too busy to lend a helping hand.
While his departure was almost without warning we know that all is well and He
who rules the universe, knew that Mr. MIDDLETON's work was finished.

Ayr. Interment was made in the "Sweet Home" cemetery at Lesanville.CARD OF THANKS.
