          The funeral services for the late Henry Ruschaupt, who died at his home near New Palestine, will be held at his last home Monday noon and then at 2:00 a funeral sermon will be preached by the late Rev. Theobold Schory at the New Palestine German Evangelical church of which denomination he was a member.  Mr. Ruschaupt was almost 80 years old.  He lived in the extreme northwest corner of this county since 1866, he having been born in Hancock county, of Prussian parents.  He raised a large family, one of his sons, George Ruschaupt, now being trustee of Moral township.  He lived on a farm all his life and was a good man and a good citizen.  His death was due to infirmities of age.
