of this city (Boscobel), after several months of intense suffering, passed to the great beyond, and was buried from the Catholic Church Saturday forenoon, where Father Kaiser preached an elegant sermon and the remains borne to St. Patrick's cemetery over on Irish Ridge, where sleep loved ones gone before, to await the sounding of the last trumpet.   John Scheinpflug officiated as funeral director and engaged a fine auto hearse from Livingston owned by W. M. Hannan.
Last September Mrs. BARRETT was operated upon in Chicago and for a short time thereafter every hope was bright for a permanent cure, but the deadly malady, cancer, soon began again and she underwent another operation at Brookside Hospital, but it seemed nothing could be done to stay its deadly work and after suffering untold agony, she passed away.   Her maiden name was Annie CARLIN and she was 45 years of age, and leaves a husband and son Leo, to mourn her early departure, as well as an aged father, mother, and a number of brothers and sisters.
