The funeral of Mrs. Wm. Shepard was held at the Baptist church this Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the W. R. C. attending in a body. We failed to receive the particulars but have personally known Mrs. Shepard for many years as an especially kindhearted affectionate neighbor and friend. She was formerly Miss Julia Bettis of Bailey. The husband, children and friends have our sincere sympathy.

Wm. Shepard has just had erected in the Le Roy cemetery a family monument of the "cottage" style made by J. B. Barber, of Cresco, bearing the D.A.R. emblems and also the Relief Corps emblems in the inscription work referring to his deceased wife. It is a handsome piece of work and is of different style from any now in the cemetery. - Le Roy Independent
