It is with feelings of no ordinary sorrow that I record the death of our truly excellent and estimable friend, John J.

Lopeman, who died March 20th, 1887, at the age of 41 years, 10 months and 29 days, with the pneuiponia fever. The deceased was only sick nine days and I until Sunday morning it was thought that he would recover, when a 6udden change in the disease resulted in mortification and immediately death followed, which was altogether so sudden and unexpected to us all that it has brought sorrow to the hearts of the entire community. The deceased leaves a beloved wife and six children to finish the remainder of life among numerous sympathizing friends, who feel as if we had lost In his removal, a long tried friend and an affectionate neighbor. It was impossible to be in his society without feeling that he was a man of no ordinary description, and again it was not easy to leave his company without retaining some impression of his useful and edifying conversation. The deceased on the day following was followed to the East Mt.

Zion church, where Rev. Cullison preached the funeral sermon from Luke 24th chapter and 23d vers after which he was laid away to rest And now just a word to the bereaved ones May the God of all grace comfort those who are cast down on this sad occasion. To Bible readers: I have added to my stock a case of the Crand Para-tell Bibles, both old and new version, (side by side), and invite you all to call and examine them.
