      Obituary
      Augustus Smith, was born in New York state, Nove 3rd, 1803, died in Antwerp, Ohio, Nov. 19th, 1892, aged 89 years and 16 days.
      He was a man of good health until stricken by paralysis about a year ago.
      He was a man respected for his good traits and having no bad habits maintained his physical powers to a good old age.
      His trade in early life was shoe-making; his occupation in the vigorous years of his manhood was that of a farmer, while his declining years were employed in carpet weaving. he had the faculty of adjusting himself to the situation, and surmounting the obstacles of adversity he succeeded in possessing a good degree of prosperity.
      He lived in the state of Ohio about 56 years, and under the stroke of his ax fell the forests of three good farms.
      Four sons and one daughter; fifteen grand and seven great grandchildren survive to mourn their loss, but he rejoices in his gain.
      He was for many years an acceptable member of the church of the United Brethren in Christ. His obsequies were held at the M. E. church last Sabbath afternoon, conducted by Rev. J. C. Crider, and his remains were laid to rest in our village cemetery.
      Mr. Smith in his long life had done what does not all to the share of every man -- he had voted at 17 presidential elections, casting his last vote for Benj. Harrison on Nov. 8, the last day he was on the streets before his fatal illness. He had been married six times, his last wife alone surviving him.
