I I wouldn't be specially inter- 1

jence in the community in which;
I he lived was great. Then all who !
knew him was his friend.
Mr. Allen was 67 years of age. ;
! In his ways of living and dealing I
jwith his fellowman was a Chris-!

j help all those who call on him.
Mr. Allen was a great man. a
gentleman and a scholar. He was;
loved by all.
Loutsburg has lost a great man,
