SWANTON, JAN. 6,

The funeral will be held at the Methodist-Episcopal Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. S. H. Smith, pastor of the church will have charge of the service. Rev. L. O. Sherburne, the presiding elder, will preach the funeral sermon, and other ministers will take part in the service.
