      The funeral of the late Daniel C. Foelster was held at the German Lutheran church this afternoon. A large number of friends gathered at the church to pay a last tribute to their departed friend. Rev. F. A. Winter preached a beautiful sermon on the life and character of this man. The floral offerings were many. The scholars of the German Lutheran school, of which he was janitor, sent a beautiful piece, "gates ajar." The scholars also rendered some appropriate music at the church. A large concourse of friends followed the remains to the German Lutheran cemetery, where the body was interred.
