A. B. Knapp
   February 10th, at his residence in Pleasant Lake, Indiana, A. B. Knapp, age 65 years.  Those who knew Mr. Knapp the best loved him the most.  He died as he had lived - a firm believer in the final holiness and happiness of all mankind.  He had been a prominent member of the Universalist Church at Pleasant Lake, and the last year of his life has been devoted to the erection of the church of his faith.  When the church was completed and dedicated it seemed his work on earth was done.  He will be missed much, as he was always first and foremost in every good word and work.  His funeral was the second held at his church.  N. Crary
