DEATH KEEPS BUSY IN OUR COMMUNITYThe hand of death has been laid heavily on this community recently. In its last issue, The Capital told that the funeral of
C. M. BARTON was then being held. On Friday, Charles H. BURLINGAME passed suddenly as a result of a second stroke of paralysis. He seemed
to be making a speedy recovery from a first attack, but the second proved quickly fatal. He was a veteran sawmill man here and was well
known. He was buried Sunday morning under the aspices of the Moose. The ranks of the G. A. R. were again invaded on the same day when W. R. KIRKLAND answered the last "taps". His home was at the outer
edge of town, adjoining Louis PAULSEN's home, where he had been an invalid for years. He was almost 84 years of age. He has been a
resident of the valley for a number of years. He enlisted in a Kansas regiment and served through the Civil War. Mrs. E. L. FARRIER died on Friday after a long and painful illness at her home on the end of Ruby Street. She had been a sufferer for
a long time and her death was expected long before it occurred. The funeral was held on Saturday.
