Robert Sterling, one of the old and respected farmers of Grundy county, near Dairyville, died on the 1st at the asylum at Independence, says the Cedar Falls Gazette. Last winter Mr. Sterling fell from a load of hay and injured his spine. More recently his mind became affected as a result of his injuries and he was taken to the asylum where he grew worse. He was one of the most worthy and reliable farmers in that part of Grundy county. His body was brought to the home and funeral services were held on Sabbath July 3d at the Advent church three miles southwest of New Hartford, conducted by Elder Stewart of Waterloo. A large number of his neighbors and friends attended.
