    JOSEPH STAY'S FUNERAL
    Will Take Place Thursday From the First Ward Meeting House.
    The funeral of Joseph Stay, whose death was announced in last night's "News," will take place in the First ward meeting house on Thursday, the 8th inst., at 1:30 p.m. Friends of the family are invited. The remains may be viewed at the late residence, 738 Wellington avenue, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the day of the funeral
    As there were some inaccuracies in last night's account of deceased, the following information furnished by Reigo Hawkins, a son-in-law, is cheerfully given space: Joseph Stay was 80 years, 9 months and 19 days old. He had been a resident of Utah since 1876 and had been paralyzed for 14 years, 8 years of which he had been utterly helpless. Nearly five years ago he buried his aged and faithful wife, shortly after celebrating their golden wedding. He was true and faithful to his covenants, a consistant Latter-day Saint, and a friend to the poor and needy, giving of his means liberally. He leaves four daughters, all of whom are faithful members of the Church. They are Mrs. Sarah J. Powell, Mrs. Charlotte E. Hawkins, Mrs. Louisa Woodbury, and Mrs. Rebecca Warburton. He also leaves 21 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

    Son of Peter STAY & Sarah MUSSEN.
