 FUNERAL OF MR. J. R. BIGLANDS,
ASPATRIA.

   There was an exceptionally large gathering at the  funeral of Mr. J. R.
BIGLANDS, which took place at St. Kentigern's Parish  Churchyard, Aspatria, on
Sunday afternoon. Deceased who was only 34 years of  age, was a very popular
young man. For many years he worked for the Bothel  Limestone Quarry Co., as a
motor driver, but latterly had been working and  residing in the Brampton
district. He was married to a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  ATKINSON, late Howrigg
Farm, Westnewton, but at present living in Carlisle. Much  sympathy is extended
to his young widow.

   The Rev. A. H. HODSON took the service and the  hymns "Rock of Ages" and
"Thy will be done" were feelingly sung by the  congregation. Miss. COBB
presided at the organ. Amongst the floral tributes  were:
