Allan, who died on the 14th November, was laid to rest in the Wellsville Cemetery on Monday afternoon. The young man was exemplary in life and greatly beloved. Many Wellsville citizens have been in this office since young Mr. Allan's death and all have taken the opportunity to speak of him in a complimentary way. He was a youth of striking personal characteristics. Although he carried in his breast for the past two years the knowledge of his impending death he bore it with cheerfulness and resignation that was unsurpassed. He was prematurely brilliant, of a most studious turn of mind and books were ever his greatest delight. He was pure of mind, clean in all his words and deeds, and the affection he bore his parents was beautiful to behold. He was high spirited and ambitious and only a few days before his death presented himself before the county school superintendent for a special examination for school teachers and took the highest percentage of all who presented themselves. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon and in many respects was the most remarkable ever held in Wellsville. Preceded by a procession of 16 of his girl cousins, each bearing a wreath and bouquet of flowers, the remains were carried to the church to the solemn strains of a requiem on the organ.
