West Burke
Death of Sumner Hartwell

Sumner Hartwell passed peacefully away about 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. He was 55 years old. He was a member and Steward of the Methodist Church, and has 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 religious work, and will be greatly missed in the church, and in his home.

He leaves a widow and two sons to mourn his lost. Last Sunday Mr. Hartwell requested his friends to come to his home and take the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper with him, and those that gathered on the solemn occasion carry away precious memories of a touching scene.
