LARDNER, LYNFORD

A Good Man Gone—Mr. Lynford Lardner, father of District Attorney Lardner, died at Dutch Flat on Thursday after a brief illness of two or three weeks. A little over two months ago, Mr. Lardner, who had been suffering from an attack of malarial fever contracted at his home near Penryn, went to Dutch Flat for a change of air. For a while the change seemed to benefit him, but owing to his advanced age—he was in his seventy-fifth year—he did not hold his ground. Deceased was a very excellent man in all of his ways and manners, having come of good stock and possessing a finished and even classical education, and he left his children the priceless legacy of an unsullied reputation. Several of his relatives, who still survive in Philadelphia, are among the wealthiest and first families of that city. He was a cousin to Nicholas Biddle, President of the United States Bank in President Jackson's time, and he was also related to Lieutenant Lardner Gibbon, USN, who explored the Amazon River many years ago. The funeral will take place tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.
