     The funeral of Henry Loucks Sr. at the Lime Kiln was largely attended from this place. he was the father of Jeremiah Loucks and of Mrs. M. O. Rickard. Mr. Loucks was the oldest citizen in this community, and would probably lived a number of years yet had it not been for a fall on the ice on the morning of the 11th of this month.
