The remains of Capt. N. E. Mathers who died at his winter home in Bay
munette (sic), Ala., arrived at the old home in Clear Creek on the Monon at
11 o'clock, and the body was at once taken to the new church, which is now
enclosed and a brief service was held, at which Rev. W. H. Smith of this
city, made a few remarks of a personal nature of the dead, and a choir
headed by L. W. Pauley sing (sic) two selections-"Nearer My God to Thee" and
"Jesus Lover of My Soul". The body was then taken to the home of Edward
Martin as Mrs. Martin is a sister, to await the arrival of the daughter Mrs.
George Clark from Columbus, Missouri, expected this afternoon. Then the
burial will be in the family lot at Clear Creek in charge of the Knights of
Pythias of which Meredith Dillman is the head at Clear Creek. The remains
were accompanied from Alabama by Mrs. Mathers and the daughter Mrs. Dr.
Riley, and the funeral party was joined in New Albany by Presley Mathers, a
brother. The Bloomington lodge of Knights of Pythias had a committee at the
service this morning. There are no further details of the death of Capt.
Mathers than published yesterday, as he had been ill for a long time and the
end came peacefully and was expected.
