Miles, Jr.: Mr. Miles Jones

Death has taked from our midst our oldest townsman, Mr. Miles Jones.
Dying on last Sabbath he was 90 years, 3 months and 2 days old.
Mr. Jones has been a resident of Elmwood for nearly 30 years.
For a number of years he has been an invalid confined to his room and bed most of the time.
He was out last that he might vote for Blaine and Logan.
It's hard to realize the changes taking place during the life-time of a man living 90 years.
Mr. Jones was born when Washington was president, and so lived under the administration of every president since to founding of the Republic.
Then the population of our country was not more than 4,000,000 now it is nearly 60,000,000.
All our modern improvements have come in duing his life time.
The settlement of both the old west and the new west has been made since he begun life.

Mr Jones was the father of Mrs. J. A. Vandervoort, Mrs. Wm Douglas and Mrs. James Venn. For two or three years past he made his home with Mrs Venn, at last dying there surrounded by all hus daughters, one son, and his other numerous relatives.

Father Brown is now the oldest man in our village, being in his 88th year. All should move in the presence of these fathers reverently. They belong to the noble generations of the past, having many excellencies after which we need to pattern. Peace to the departed and belssings upon the living.
