"OLD PEOPLE - WHO HAVE DIED IN ST. CLAIR COUNTY SINCE JULY 7, 1893. - The Necrologist's Report Before the St. Clair County Pioneer Society.

At the Pioneer Society meeting on Wednesday, M. F. Carleton, necrologist, read the following:

The duties of a necrologist are not the pleasantest in the world. He is not supposed to be looking for material to add to the pleasurable part of any gathering. On the contrary it is his duty to collect, so far as he can, a record of dates when people of a certain locality ceased to be residents on mother earth, and took their departure over into that land on the other side. The list of those that go year by year, of the old ones, increases. Many that formerly met with us here are awaiting us over there. We know not how soon some one will record the date of our departure. May we be entirely ready when our time comes, and may the last days of each member of this society be peaceful and happy. I now respectfully submit the following report. That it is imperfect and incomplete I feel quite satisfied, and hope that your next necrologist will give you a fuller report, in details relating to the deceased, but that he may have fewer names to report:
