BENJAMIN  F.  M'LEAN.
----------
          Benjamin F. McLean  died at his home in Sugar Creek township, one mile east of Needham, at 3:25 o'clock Saturday afternoon, following an illness of several months.  His death was due directly to Bright's disease from which he had long been a sufferer.
          On the fourth of last March, Mr. McLean was stricken with paralysis and for several weeks was unable to leave his bed, but he later recovered to such an extent that he was able to be out for several weeks.  In the meantime, however, the disease that finally caused his death had made great progress and it became apparent to his friends and relatives that his life could not be prolonged many weeks.  For several days his condition had been critical and his death was not unexpected.
          Mr. McLean was fifty-five years old, having been born March 22, 1852.  He was one of the widely known and highly respected residents of the county and his death is a real loss to Sugar Creek township and the county generally, as he was broad-minded and progressive and always in the forefront in matters pertaining to the advancement of the county along educational, moral and religious lines.  He served Sugar Creek township four years as trustee and under his leadership the affairs of the township were ably administered.  Mr. McLean was a staunch democrat and was elected by his party as trustee in 1900.  As the incumbent of the office, however, his broad mind led him to conduct it to the benefit and advancement of all the residents of the townshp and all had the best of words for him as an official, neighbor and friend.  The regret and sorrow over his untimely death is general.  Mr. McLean followed farming as his occupation and the greater part of his life was spent in Sugar Creek township.  He was married to  Miss Anna Belton,  February 7, 1878, who survives him, and to the union four children, all girls, were born.  They are  Mrs. Gilbert Johnson,  Mrs. Clarence Armstrong,  Mrs. Elmer Armstrong,  and  Miss Gladys McLean,  who was the winner of first honors in the recent county oratorical contest.  He also leaves his mother,  Mrs. Angie Hoop,  of Fairland, and two sisters -- Mrs. William Vaught,  of Noblesville, and  Emma McLean,  of Fairland.
          Mr. McLean was a member of the Knights of Pythias lodge at Needham and the members of this organization will take part in the burial ceremonies.  The funeral services will be held at the Second Mt. Pleasant church at 10:30 o'clock Tuesday morning with  Rev. P. O. Duncan,  a former pastor of the church, officiating, and the interment will be made in the Mt. Pleasant cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.

SUDDEN  DEATH
----------
Mrs. Margaret McLane Found Dead
In Bed Tuesday Morning
--------
          Mrs. Margaret McLane, wife of  Thomas McLane, was found dead in bed Tuesday morning at her home on East Hendricks street.  Mrs. McLane had been ailing for more than a year, her trouble bringing on heart disease with which she was occasionally prostrated.  A number of trips were made to Martinsville but no relief resulted.  She was no worse last evening than she had been and no thought was had that she would die.
          Mr. McLane arose at the usual hour from his couch in their bed room and going to Mrs. McLane glanced at her thinking she was asleep.  He then passed out the room and while breakfast was being prepared one of the daughters went in the room and she thought her mama was only sleeping soundly and sweetly, and so she was, for the Angel of Love had touched her brow bidding her to come up higher and live where there is no pain or suffering or sorrow.  After a while Mr. McLane again went to his wife and this time laid his hand on her.  She was dead.  Her death had probably occured three hours before, due to paralysis of the heart.
          Mrs. McLane was born near Waldron, this county, her maiden name being Newton. Her age was fifty-six years and sixteen days.  She was united in marriage to Thomas W. McLane February 4, 1862.  Unto their union were born seven children, six of whom survive, they being  William C.,  Thomas D.,  Harry M.,  Elizabeth,  Margaret  and  Dunn.  Besides these she leaves three sisters and one brother.  Funeral services will be held at the late home at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 27th, Dr. Caldwell officiating.  Interment in Forest Hill. Remains and cortege in charge of Marshall G. Tindall.
-----------------------------------------------

          The death of  Mrs. Margaret McLane, wife of  Thomas McLane, of East Hendricks street, removes from Shelbyville one of our very best women.  Mrs. McLane was plain and unassuming in her conduct but her disposition was such that all who knew her respected her highly for her many good traits and noble deeds.  She was of the kind that are hard to give up and whose place in the family circle is never filled.  The community extends to the bereaved husband and children in this sore affliction its tenderest sympathy.

OBITUARY.
----------
          Squire T. McLean,  eldest son of  D. and  Rebecca McLean,  was born Shelby Co., March 1st, 1864, and after a lingering illness of seven months departed this life July 27, 1898, aged 34 years, 4 months, and 26 days, at the home of his mother in Needham.  His parents moved there when he was a small child.  Early in life he gave his heart to Christ and united with the Mt. Zion M. P. church near Needham.  Though burdened with humanity to the degree that he sometimes erred, yet he delighted in his church services, and seldom failed to speak a word when the opportunity was afforded, of his love for his Saviour and his desire that all might walk in the way of life everlasting, especially those of his own home circle.  Though of short duration, his life bears the marks of a true Christian.  Although it was his lot to suffer affliction for several years, yet he bore all without complaining.  All that strong hands and loving hearts could do was done to give what comfort could be given but death claimed his own and he is with us no more.  There is a vacancy in the home and hearts of those most dear to him that cannon be filled, but beautiful hands are just over the river, beckoning us to our dear one, where all is peace, love, joy and rest.
          For a time he was the postmaster at Needham.  For many years he was the superintendent of the S.S. at Mt. Zion and was at the time of his death.  He will be missed by the S.S. for whenever health would permit, he never failed to be in his place.
          He leaves mother, two sisters and one brother, his father having died two years ago.  The family thus bereft have the sympathy of their many friends in this sad hour.
          Though it is sometimes hard to see the silver lining which every storm cloud has, still we should look to the light beyond and remember that God’s promises will all be fulfilled, God in his wisdom doeth all things best, and by and by we shall understand.
          Funeral services conducted Friday, July 29th at 2nd Mt. Pleasant church by Rev. John Hein, after which we laid his wasted form away by the side of his father, to await the resurrection.
