T. It May be that the Dally Mali comes Tbs class and we do not Wain to ooh i the position after More mature reflection we understand that the funeral service Abbeville was conducted by an aged Man Lotf who was invited by the constituted Auto ties of the Tau Rob and who arrived at Aboc " Volle late saturday even no before the fun Al was to take la cent sunday.
