The great esteem in which Mr. Bond was held by the entire community is shown by the very large attendance at the funeral service. The church was filled to its capacity and by the profusion of floral offerings which consisted of beautiful cut flowers and many elaborate pieces. Mr. Bond, by his cheerful disposition, his courage to do what he though was right and his honesty, gained for him a host of friends, by whom he will me missed. --16 July, 1914: J. A.
