WERNLI -- On Saturday evening, April 20, 1889, of diabetes, Adolph Henry Wernli, aged 29 years, 7 months and 25 days.

The deceased had been a great sufferer for years, but was always patient, scarcely ever complaining and attended to office work up to a short time previous to his death. He was careful and painstaking in his business transactions and had become well established in the lona insurance and steamship passenger agencies.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the family residence of Prof. J. Wernli at two o'clock and later at the German Methodist church. A large attendance of friends were present and the clergymen of several churches joined in conducting the services.

The deceased was a man of great natural ability and had his life not been blighted at an early age by sickness he would have taken a prominent place in the world.

The German Methodist church was supplied with an abundance of flowers, and the exercises were of highly interesting character. But owing to the death of Mr. A. H. Wernli, a noticeable sadness and quiet pervaded the congregation that is known for its enthusiasm and enterprise in all religious ceremonies.
