The funeral of Mrs. Nancy BARKMAN, conducted at Bethlehem church last week, was held under many difficulties. The snow had drifted the roads so badly the undertaker could not use his hearse and an ordinary bobsled was used. One son, John BARKMAN, lived eight miles away and it took him nearly a half day to get through the drifts and at three places he had to get permission of farmers to cut the fences to get through.
