Obituary

MICHAEL GARDNER CALLED TO ETERNAL REST

Death relieved the sufferings of the venerable Michael Gardner at 11 o'clock on Wednesday night. He met the grim messenger with perfect composure and with the fortitude of a good soldier of the cross. He had been confined to his bed for several weeks, suffering intensely from liver and kidney troubles and he was willing and glad to go.

The funeral will take place at St. Joseph's church at 10 o'clock on Saturday morning. Tomorrow the Courier will print a more extended notice of the life history of this most excellent man and citizen.
