          James Patty, residing in Sugar Creek township, is dangerously ill with blood poisoning.
          James Patty, who lives on the farm of  Phillip Hoop, in Sugar Creek township, is slowly dying of blood poisoning caused by a malignant carbuncle located on the left cheek.  Mr. Patty is well known here.  He was a soldier in the Ninth Indiana Cavalry and is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic.
          With feelings of sorrow I record the death of  James Patty, at his home in Sugar Creek township, on the 18th inst., of erysipelas, aged 60 years.  Deceased was widely and favorably known in this community.  He was a true and gallant soldier in the late war, being a member of Company H. 9th Indiana Cavalry.  His funeral occurred on Monday, the 20th inst., at the Boggstown M. E. church, under the auspices of  Jerry Odell Post, No. 567, G.A.R.  Rev. J. P. Pell delivered the funeral oration.  The remains were interred in the Boggstown cemetery, where tonight the cold March winds chant a sad requiem o'er the remains of a once fond husband, father, and friend.  Farewell, dear comrade, no more prison pens and hospitals.  No more battle fields and weary marches.  You have gone to join the innumerable company of those who muster today upon the parade grounds of Heaven.
