FUNERAL CARD

Oh, deem not

they are blest alone

whose lives

a peaceful tenor keep;

The Power who pities man,

has shown

A blessing for the eyes

that weep.

shall fill again

The lids

that overflow with tears:

And weary hours

of woe and pain

Are promises

of happier years.

The tables were beautifully decorated for the occasion.  Two lovely wedding cakes, one presented by Princess Rebekah lodge and one by Mrs. Anna HANSEN, of Dixon.  The beautiful gifts received show the esteem in which they are held.

At the close of the first tables a talk was given by Rev. Theo. BECK, followed by the presentation of a purse of money by Dr. Thomas D.
