Smith W. Allen.

Our community was shocked again last week upon hearing of the sudden death of our well known and honored townsman and citizen. No one thought he was so near the gate which opened into the unseen. Only a short time before he met with Mr. Robbin's "Parlor Orchestra," and expected to be present to add to the entertainment held at the Bulkley Opera hall, in the interest of the High school. But such are the uncertainties of life that no one is exempt from the liability of death.

Mr. Allen was born in the town of Sandy Creek, N.Y., Oct. 27, 1839, and was therefor a little past fifty years of age at his demise. He lived with his father, Mareus D. Allen, at West Sandy Creek, for-twenty.seven years, when he removed to the farm near this village, where he spent the remnant of his days.

He was twice married: the first time to Miss Sarah Sargent sometime in the year 1867; the second time to Miss Addie Chapin July 17, 1878, who still survives to mourn with others the loved and cherished. Besides the wife he leaves an only son Melvin, who has always been to the father, brother and son. New responsibilities have fallen upon the young man who has been wout to lean upon a father's council. A mother, two brothers and sister, with many near kindred, are in sadness. But it is in the home where the greatest
loneliness is experienced. Three brothers and two sisters have passed with father to the spirit land, and the aged wife and mother is only waiting for the chariot to swing low, May the hand unseen uphold and comfort in this time of great need.
