      ____________________


      It becomes our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of one of our well-known farmers, Mr. Frank Snider, who passed away on Sunday evening. About 24 years ago deceased had an accident, which partially disabled him, so that he could never walk very freely after that. Nearly two years before his death he suffered a paralytic stroke, and has been helpless ever since. Dropsy and heart failure was the immediate cause of his death. He leaves a sorrowing widow, a grown-up son and a large circle of other relatives. The remains were laid to rest in Snyder's cemetery, Bloomingdale, on Tuesday afternoon.
