eral of N. H Cochran, held at the
Christian church on Wednesday
afternoon, friends and fraternity 1 the 1
brothers of the deceased gentle- j
man turning out to pay their last i "^ithougrh ome folks My
sad respects to him. There were
many floral tributes and the ser-
I . vices conducted by Rev. Wickizcr
I j were appropriate to the occasion.
Mrs. Cochran is herself quite sick
with the influenza and could not
attend; in fact, so seriously that
she was not told of Mr. Cochran's
death until just before the funvral.
Her condition is reported more fav-
orable this morning, and hopes of
her recovery are entertained.
