The sermon preached by Father Hemmen, pastor of the St. Francis Catholic Church, fe]ll like a beqe- di'ction upon the respective hearts of all those who had gathered to pay a last, loving tribute.

He told the beau- tifu] story o Mary and Martha and of their faith which Jesus reward- ed by returning their brother, Laz- arus, to them alive and well and in the possession of all his faculties, after his death and after he had lain in his grave :three days. Following the touching cerenon- ies at the church, where the choir rendered appropriate and heart- soothing music, interment was made in the family burying ground at the City C'emetery, the pall bearers be- ing, Chas.
