      Henry L. Clark Passes Away After Brief Illness

      Our community was shocked and saddened, Monday morning when the news came that Mr. Henry L. Clark, of Lake St., had passed away between six and seven o'clock. Mr. Clark was taken ill and developed pneumonia, a week ago last Friday.

      He fought a good battle and had it not been for a weak heart he would have come off conqueror with pneumonia, but his heart could not stand the strain as it had been a source of trouble, by reason of weakness for some time.

      Henry L. Clark was born on the Clark farm, north-west of this village about two miles, December 8, 1854. He was ambitious for an education. He attended Pulaski Academy and fitted himself to teach district school which he did for a few terms, most successfully. He followed farming all of his life up to about three years ago when he bought the home where he died and came, to town taking up the sale of farm implements, a business he had been doing along with his farm work for some time.

      June 21, 1876, Mr. Clark took to be his life companion, Miss Florence Trumbull who, with four sons and one daughter survive him. They are Edwin E. Clark, Mrs. J.L. Mattison, and Norman L. who live in the neighborhood of their father's home; Norman is on the homestead; Herbert S., of Watertown and F. Clayton, of Madison, Wis.

      Mr. Clark was a member of Pulaski Methodist church; Pulaski Lodge F. & A.M. and Pulaski Grange. He has long taken deep interest in the grange, serving as master, trustee and in other important capacities.

      Mr. Clark stood at the head of the line in good citizenship and his sterling worth and wholesome influence will be keenly felt by many. He was not old enough to lay aside the implements of service and would have been of continued value to our community had his life been spared.

      Funeral services will be held at the home, tomorrow, at half-past two, Rev. Frederick Maunder, of Syracuse, a former pastor of Pulaski Methodist church, will officiate. The
      masonic rites will be celebrated. Burial will be made in Pulaski cemetery.

      A large gathering of neighbors, and friends met at the home of the late Henry L. Clark, Lake St., on Thursday afternoon, to pay their last respects to the man whom we mourn and will miss. Mr. Clark's death, as announced, last week, occurred June 4th. The service was conducted by Rev. Frederick Maunder, of Syracuse, who was pastor of the Methodist church when Mr. Clark became a member. He was called for the service on account of the absence from town of Rev. Chas. T. Holcombe, pastor of Mr. Clark's church. Mr. Maunder talked on the bible verse, "And Enoch walked with God." He paid a high tribute to Mr. Clark and spoke fitting words in the discourse he delivered. The masonic rites were celebrated by Pulaski Lodge, F. & A.M. of which Mr. Clark was a member. Mr. S.R. Trumbull recited the ritualistic ceremonies in a most impressive manner.

      The floral tributes were profuse and embraced many collections in wreathes and other pieces also many loose flowers.

      The bearers were Dwight C. Dodge, David C. Mahaffy, William M. Woods, Dr. J.W. Mills, D. Ward Howard and Byron G. Seamans, members of Pulaski Lodge.
