Obituary

Loren Kingsbury, one of our aged citizens, died at his home last Friday, and the funeral was held at the Methodist church Sunday, Rev. M.H. Smith officiating, assisted by Rev. F.E. Coburn. Mr. Kingsbury was a veteran of the civil war, and a member of Hooker post. The post attended in a body. He was a quiet retiring man, well liked by all who knew him. He is survived by one daughter, who has tenderly cared for him in his declining years, and ministered to his every want in his lingering illness.
