posse:,sed the dignity of honest con-

enough to live as lie believe I to be
right, after a lifetime of diligent re-
search and tireless investigation If
j there he one thing more than an-
ther that mankind honors and ad-
mires, it is a brave man, and such
was he; a man of high moral princi-
ple, just and honorable in all his
dealings with his fellow men; a
devoted husband, a kind, indulgent
father; one who by his thorough
sincerity commanded the respect of
all who knew him well, and one
whose influence an I presence will
be missed by many warm friends
and neighbors wha h ive grown to
know and value his usefulness to
