Saturday at half past 1 o'clock p.m., the house was thronged with sympathising friends to pay their respect to his memory.
The services were conducted by Rev. E. P. WOOD, the music being led by Mr. McINTIRE. The remains were interred in the south
[Rose Hill] cemetery [Mount Ayr].

Thus we have lost a good citizen and are to be condoled with ourselves, while we offer our condolence
to the afflicted family which is here, and scattered in Mo., Kansas and Colorado.
