985 At twenty minutes of 12 o'clock yesterday morning, a noble soul parted from this life, to enter into the great Beyond: The feeble, flickering spark of life, that for many days had struggled for an existence, at last went out, in the moon-time calm of a beautiful Spring day: and the earthly duties of Justice Lane were finished.

Probably no other event has ever caused such universal sorrow through the community, who feel his loss as a personal bereavement. Possessed of natural and acquired abilities that elevated him above the average, yet he was as modest and unassuming as a child: Endowed with the finest characteristics of manhood - the embodiment of all that was good and ennobling; with an organization keenly sensitive to the misfortune of others; - free, open-hearted, sympathetic, overflowing with genuine humanity - such were the qualities that endeared him to all, and his untimely decease is a great public misfortune.

Giles Willard Lane was born in the town of Cobbleskill, Scoharie County, N.Y., on the 25th of November 1820, which would bring his age 57 years, 5 months and 1 day. He was next to the oldest in a family of seven children - 3 boys and 4 grils - all of whom survive him. The oldest brother is in Wisconsin, the other two, John and Spencer, reside near Camden. Two of his sisters reside here, Mrs. Osborne (with whom he lived), and Mrs. Deans; the others are Miss Louisa Lane, of Constantia, and Mrs. Merchant of West Monroe.

In 1837, Willard, than a promising young man, moved with his father's family to West Monroe, where they lived three years and the came to what is generally known as Lenesburg, a few miles northeast of here. Willard was now in his 20th year, and soon after their arrival, engaged in the lumber business, which was carried on for a number of years. During his 20 years' residence at the Burg, he held the office of Trustee for a long time, and also taught school there.

In the year 1860, he took up his residence in Cleveland and in partnership with his brother John, purchased the chair factory of Hitchcock & Son, which was then in operation where the planing mill stands.

The people were not long finding him a representative man, and in 1861 he was elected to the office of Supervisor, where he served the people faithfully and well. A year or two after he was chosen Collector. In 1864, he was elected Justice of the Peace, which position he held continuously till his death. The greater part of the time through those years he was also a member of the Village Board.

All through a period of over 15 years he was chosen by the people to positions of public trust and honor, and their confidence in him was unlimited. That his fidelity and usefulness was appreciated, is plainly evidenced in the deep expressions of sorrow from far and near.

All through his long illness, and up to within a day of his death, he clung to the belief that he would get well. He expressed himself as fully prepared, if he must die, bu cherished a great desire to get well that he might finish up many things that remained unsettled. Although his hopes were not to be realized, Death found him not unprepared. His eminently worthy Christian life and rendered the transition sweet and peaceful -

The funeral services will be hold tomorrow, in the Methodist Church, Rev. W.S. Titus officiating. After which, the remains will be taken to Maple Flats for burial, beside his father, mother and two sisters.
