O. D. Harvey, well-known to this vicinity, was fond dead in his bed, Wednesday morning. The doctor pronounced it a case of apoplexy. His funeral took place on Thursday at the Universalist chapel, Rev. F. Millar delivering an able discourse. The Grand Army men came in a body to pay their last respects to their dead comrade. This is the first funeral held in the new chapel, and the house was full. The family have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
