Funeral of the Late Joseph Emigh.

The funeral of the late Joseph Emigh, whose sudden death near his home in Summerhill Township on Tuesday is elsewhere noted in this paper, took place yesterday, interment being made in the Wilmore U. B. Cemetery. Rev. J. C. Erb, of the U. B. Church, officiated.

Mr. Emigh had gone to the home of his son William, after eating his dinner, and was out for a stroll with his little grandson when he was stricken with heart failure and died. A sad and unusual incident connected with the death of Mr. Emigh was that his ballot was counted as he lay a corpse; and his son William heard of his father's death while in a booth at the polls preparing his ballot.
