NEWELL S.

During the morning Mr. Ackley wasabout the farm sewing oats and at noon he came to the house feeling tired andafter dinner laid down for a time to rest. Shortly after he concluded toburn up some brush on a field back of his home, and without doubt it was theover exertion of keeping this fire from spreading that was the direct cause ofhis death, along with the extreme heat of the day. The family becomingalarmed at his not returning in the evening made as thorough a search as waspossible and also notified the neighbors of their fears for his safety, and atabout 9:30 o’clock that evening his dead body was found seated by a fence inthe field where he had worked during the afternoon.

For many years he has been an official member of the MethodistEpiscopal Church of this borough, and of the hours of beautiful service andyears of faithfulness for Christ’s sake and in His name only He who knoweth allhas a full record. The church and community suffers a great loss, butwill keep in lasting remembrance that in our midst he lived a most consistentChristian life, building up a character of sterling worth.
