It's NEWS To Me!

I received today an unusual tribute to Charles R. Connellan, who died Sunday in his home on Fort street and whose funeral was conducted today. Mr. Connellan, this informant told me, will be missed by scores of folks in his neighborhood, who have looked to him for many years for a little help here and there. No questions asked, no "uplift" offered or asked, just a little neighborly help. Maybe a little load, or a little gift that was called a loan. Maybe some groceries or a hod of coal. Whatever his friends or neighbors seemed to need at the moment, he was "good for it" and so he will be missed by his friends and neighbors. A little tribute that many a man, much wealthier or higher in the social scale, would give a great deal to have from his friends.
