C., of Fairfield; Mrs. Aaron Hise, of West Liberty; Mrs. W.S. Luse, of the same place; Sidney Harris, of Fairfield, and Edward Harris of Wapsie.
The funeral is appointed for tomorrow morning at 10 o’clock, under the auspices of the Old Fellows, of which organization the deceased had long been a member.
