Death of Chas. McGINNIS
The death of Chas. McGINNIS occurred at his home in the town of Cedarburg on Sunday last after an illness of about a year, deceased having suffered a severe attack of the grip last winter which developed into lung trouble from which he died. Charles was born and raised on the farm, his late homestead, and was a sober, intelligent young man, who for his industry and exemplary habits was esteemed by every one. To know him was to respect him. Four years ago he was married to Miss Maggie RYAN, sister of Rev. F. C. RYAN of Milwaukee, who with her little son survive him. Among all his acquaintances, we have never heard a person say a word against Charles. He was kind and obliging to all and it was not his disposition to say a hard word against anybody, no matter what their faults might be. The funeral services were held at St. Francis church this forenoon, Rev. F. C. RYAN officiating. The remains were interred in the Catholic cemetery.
Sudden Death of Wm. RICE
Our citizens were startled last Monday morning on hearing the news that Wm. RICE of this town had breathed his last. He had always enjoyed the best of health and his death was a great surprise. Several days ago he complained of not feeling well, but seemed to be improving until Sunday when a relapse set in and he died the same night. The cause of his death was inflammation of the bowels. Deceased was about 56 years of age and highly esteemed by all who knew him. He was a devoted husband, a kind neighbor and a true friend whose death is deeply mourned by relatives and his large circle of acquaintances. Three years ago he was married to Miss Jennie LYNCH of Milwaukee who with two little twin sons survive him. He has gone to his long rest and the sympathy of all are extended to the bereaved family. The funeral occurred from St. Francis church, of which the deceased has been a faithful member, this - Wednesday - forenoon, after which the remains were interred in the Cath!
olic cemetery, whither they were followed by a large concourse of mourning friends and relatives, Rev. J. W. O'KEEFE officiating.

'Tis a dainty way to let your dear ones know that in the busy whirl of life, one day, is marked beyond forgetting in the lives of mother, father, sister and brother. A beautiful birthday cake came from Mr. and Mrs. GOSSE of Chicago, with their compliments; a profusion of cut flowers and delicious ice cream was a remembrance from her oldest son William, who also lives in Chicago. Congratulatory letters from absent loved ones, and dainty fancy work by daughter's fingers, made mamma feel that it was indeed a rare treat to celebrate a birthday. Covers were laid for ten guests and the delicious refreshments were done ample justice to. Those present were: Mesdames SCOTT, ECKEL, BLAKE, STELLING, KO!
EH, JACKSON, LEEK, MUELLER and Miss Dora MORITZ of Milwaukee.

So when elected the offices of Justice of the Peace will as heretofore be found at Millie WEYKER'S saloon, at the Wilson and at the American with one at the court house, TOWSLEY.
