Harvard, Idaho, Jan. 3.--William C.

Mr. Conner worked on the saw a few minutes and complained of being dizzy and asked to be helped to his bed. From that time he grew rapidly worse and at eight o'block that evening he passed into that sleep that knows no awakening. The remains were laid to rest in the Woodfell cemetery Sunday.
