Death of Sumner Hartwell.

Sumner Hartwell passed peacefully away about five o'clock Tuesay afternoon. He was 55 years old. He was a member and steward of the Methodist church, and had led the choir ever since the church was built. He was also a member of the Grand Army.He has always taken an active part in all religious work, and will be greatly missed in the church and in his home. He leaves a widow and two sons to mourn his loss. Last Sunday Mr. Hartwell requested his friends to come to his home and take the sacrement of the Lord's Supper with him, and those that gathered on this solemn occasion will carry away precious memories of a touching scene.
