Rarely, if ever, during the years of this correspondents connection with the JOURNAL, has he been called on to note the passing away from our earthly homes, within a few hours of each other, of three persons so well and favorably known as was the case last week. Funeral services, held later in the week, are here mentioned. Those of E. A. Giles, about 69 years old, a respected and useful citizen, and active member of the Methodist church, were held at the house Wednesday, and were very largely attended. Rev. C. M. Carpenter was summoned by telegraph from Lynn, Mass., where he is taking a few weeks' vacation, to officiate, but reaching town too late, Rev. Joseph Hamilton, of W. R. Junction, acted in his place. The remains were buried in Hartland cemetery.
