A. D. Sefton

Normal Notes.
Mr. A. D. Sefton died Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. He had been sick but little more than a week. He was ready to die, often expressing his faith in a future reward for followers of the Master. He was conscious to the last, and just before he died lie sang part of a hymn, and uttered a beautiful prayer. His was a life well worthy of imitation. His body was taken away Sunday night on the 12 o'clock train, all the members of the Crescent Literary Society accompanying. He was one of the oldest members of this society. In consequence of his death the society will not give its usual entertainment next Friday evening, but a week from that time a meeting will be held in respect to the memory of this beloved brother. Those who will take part are Mrs. Boucher, essay; Miss Wilson, poem; Mr. Kilroy, eulogy; Mr. Williams, oration; Mr. Blain, Declamation and B. F. Nihart, biography. The hall will be appropriately arranged.
