Death visited our town again on the morning of the 5th of October, and claimed Mr. J. S. Harris.  He had been greatly afflicted for fifteen months.  His remains were carried to Connaseena cemetery and consigned to the silent tomb, October 6th.  A large number of our citizens were present to perform the last sad rite to our deceased friend, Rev. J. M. White officiated at the grave.  He had been a citizen of Kingston twenty-four years, and would have been fifty eight years old the day he was buried.  Landed in Kingston about the same time of day twenty-four years ago that the funeral procession started out of town to the cemetery.  Brother Harris will be greatly missed at the Methodist church and Sunday school.  His seat was rarely empty, and his class of little boys always found him at his post until the past few months, he was not able to be present.  He leaves a wife and several grown children and many friends to mourn his loss.  Much more could be said, but your correspondent does not wish to violate your custom.  We feel sad over the thought of so many of our good citizens have died during this year.
