I stood by the narrow casket,
At rest from the pain and struggle,
The sleeps with green grass above her,
The smile on her face yet lingers,
She will dwell in our memories ever,
God has called thee home, dear Mary,

Boyd Lyle, a thrifty farmer living a short distance from Kyger, was stricken down with heart disease at his home Feb. 1st. He had been in poor health for sometime from this affliction, though his death was not anticipated, hence it falls with the force of a sudden shock upon his family and friends. Mr. Lyle was born in Meigs county, July 23, 1845, and was therefore in his fifty-second year. He was a soldier, serving in the 53d O. V. I. For a number of years he has been a resident of Gallia county. A sister and four brothers survive him, while in his immediate home he leaves a wife, three children and one grand-child to mourn his death. He was a good-natured, companionable man, agreeable at home and abroad, and a most obliging neighbor. Interment took place Thursday at Poplar Ridge cemetery, Rev. W. J. Fulton of Rio Grande, conducting the funeral service.
[apparently died 02 Feb 1897 according to county death records, an uncle of Emmet Lyle.]
There is a very pretty new egg salad just invented. Place crisp lettuce leaves upon an individual plate. Cut the white of a hard boiled egg in the form of petals (in strips the long way of the egg), and spread them out in the form of a water lily. Put the hard boiled yolks through a vegetable press or a ricer and place carefully in the center of the lily. The imatation [sic] of a lily is very good indeed. Pass a salad dressing with this salad.
In pursuance to a called meeting, a
large number of the stockholders of the
Gallia Produce Company met Monday
at the Court House and voted to
increase the capital stock of the
company from $50,000 to $100,000.
