HENRY H. FOSTER-Mr. Henry H. Foster died at his home in Centre street on Sunday last, in his 85th year. For eight years or more, he was afflicted with what he supposed to be rheumatism, but which of late had developed into gangrene. Until within two weeks he was able to be out. Funeral service was held on Wednesday, the Rev. M. Y. Bovard officiating. The burial was in Greenfield Cemetery. A wife and four daughters and one son survive him, to whom, in their bereavement, much sympathy is expressed. Deceased was born at Fosters Meadow, where he lived for some years until his removal to this village. He learned the business of a shoe maker and afterward was a butcher, from which business he retired some twenty years ago. In politics he was a strong Democrat, never failing to vote at all elections or to work for the successs of his party. Some years ago he was Collector of the Town and also Constable.

(1)SELAH H. BRUSH-Selah H. Brush, who had served several terms as Justice of the Peace of North Hempstead, died at his home at Port Washington on Wednesday from consumption, from which he had long been a sufferer. Deceased was an honorable man, a good neighbor and a worthy member of Morton Lodge, F.& A.M., whose members attend his funeral on Sunday afternoon next, at 1 o'clock, to take charge of the services.

(2)SUSAN O. JENNINGS-The announcement of the death of Mrs. Susan O. Jennings, the wife of Mr. Stephen O. Jennings, will be of regret to our villagers, among whom the deceased has lived together upwards of fifty years-years that had seen its pleasures and hardships-always devoted and happy because spared to each other. The affliction is a great one and our sympathies are extended to the bereaved family.

(3)MRS. FRANCIS PINE-The remains of Mrs. Frances Pine, whose death occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. F. Robinson, in Jacksonville, Florida, on the 10th inst., were brought to the village on Sunday last. The funeral service was held Monday evening, from the residence of Mr. J. A. Bedell, Jackson street, The Rev. J. A. Davis, officiating. The interment was in Greenfield Cemetery. Four days previous to her death Mrs. Pine was stricken with paralysis, from which she never rallied. Deceased's husband, Mr. Samuel Pine, died thirteen years ago this month. Mrs. Pine was a consciencious member of the Presbyterian church, (having united with that denomination, we are informed, when she was 16 years old), a kind neighbor, and a woman highly esteemed by all. She was in her 80th year.

(4)BARNARD POWERS-Mr. Barnard Powers, who formerly resided in Henry street, this village, but of late years, has been a resident of East Meadow, died of paralysis on Sunday, having been stricken two days previously. He had been to the city on Thursday, feeling apparently as well as ever. The next day he was stricken, never regaining consciousness. Deceased was about 65 years old. Since he has been established at East Meadow, he has engaged in the dairy business. Honorable in every business relation of life, charitably inclined toward every one, a life of great usefulness has closed. His furneral, held on Wednesday, was largely attended. The interment was at Westbury. The family in their bereavement has the sympathy of the community.

(5)GEORGE WILLETS-An old and respected resident of our village- Mr. George Willets-died quite suddenly at his home on Franklin street, last Monday. Though he had not been in good health for some time, he failed very rapidly at the last. A little more than a week ago, he had a fall, while passing along Front street, which affected him considerably. This with his sickness and infirmity, prevented his rallying. The funeral service will be heard on Friday at 1:30 P.M., members of Hempstead Lodge, I.O.O.F., attending, of which body he has for some years been an honored member. A son and daughter survive the deceased, to whom the sympathy of our community is extended. Though deceased possessed some wealth, he was opposed to any display and many deeds of charity and assistance has he rendered to deserving ones, which only those assisted will ever know.
