After a long, lingering illness Charles Parker died October 25, at his home; of chronic inflammation of the bowels. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Astleford at the Adaville Church.

The church was crowded to its utmost with friends and neighbors who had gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to the dead and show their sympathy for the bereaved family. Mr. Parker was a man highly respected by all who knew him and leaves a young wife and boy five years of age and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn his loss.

Charley Parker, of Adaville, died at his home near that place last Sunday.

The funeral services were held at the Adaville Church yesterday afternoon.

Mr. Parker was about twenty-nine years old. He leaves a wife and a child about six years old to mourn his departure.

Last week Dr, Warren and two physicians from Akron performed a delicate surgical operation on the young man. The malady had formed such a growth that its removal was more than human vitality could stand. Mr. Parker has a wide circle of friends who mourn his death.
