Mr. Hancox, pastor, and burial in the St. Charles cemetery.

The bereaved parents and sisters have a full measure of sympathy in their severe affliction, which was intensified by the fact that Mr. Pixler’s father was buried a week ago, his aged mother considered at the point of death and their two remaining young daughters most severe sufferers from the same disease that took from them their youngest daughter and sister. The two surviving young ladies are, however, convalescent and their recovery anxiously hoped for.
