The funeral services of the late Sherman F. Bartlett were held from the residence in Fairview addition at 2 p.m., Rev. Dr. Kantner, of the First Congregational church officiating. Burial at Rural cemetery. Mr. Bartlett was a native of Connecticut, removing to New York in his youth, thence to Nebraska, and in November 1890 to Oregon.

He was married in 1851, Mrs. Bartlett and two adult sons in Nebraska surviving him. He was not a member of any secret society. He was a great worker in his denomination and always paid liberally to the church, and by his warm hearted enthusiastic ways won hosts of friends. Deceased was a very quiet man but of the qualities that make a model and useful citizen in every walk of life. His death will be a great loss to the community in which he moved. He leaves a very comfortable home to take his place in the House not made with hands.
