M. Marsh on South First street. Rev. F.F Farmiloe will preach the funeral sermon and the Grand Army will have charge of the service.

Mr. Ballou, who was 52 years old, left home May 10 last, and when his bleaching bones were discovered in a tangled thicket eight miles south of city, he had been away eight months and six days. Besides his wife who lives at 1255 Ferguson street, he leaves four daughters, one of whom is married. Four brothers also live in Rockford.

Besides viewing the remains at Stllman Valley, relatives were taken to the spot where the body was found in the woods, and the members of the family are all certain that Mr. Ballou came to his death owing to heart disease, to which he was subject.
