(Column 04)
Summary: George H. Stouffer died in Greencastle on July 10th. He was 22 years old. "The deceased was a young man of promising talents and exalted moral and Christian character. During his sickness he manifested great Christian resignation, being entirely resigned to the will of Him who doeth all things well. He died without a struggle, with his eyes raised to Heaven, his face radiant with a smile, which reminded us more of a celestial inhabitant than one over whom was closing the dull curtain of mortality. In his death his bereaved wife lost a kind and affectionate husband, the community an active and esteemed citizen and the church an energetic member."
