Julius Van Auken
Last Sabbath afternoon death claimed another of our citizens
Julius Van Auken, well and favorable known by a large member of our people,
died after a brief illness of only three days. Mr. Van Auken was quite
a young man and gave promise of a useful life. He had taught one term
in Fremont Academy, and would have commenced his second term of this school
in a few days had not his life been brought to such an untimely close.
He was buried on Monday in accordance with the usage of the Order of Odd
Fellows and was followed to his final resting-place by a large concourse
of sympathizing citizens. He leaves a wife and two small children to
mourn his loss.
