      A Hitch in Funeral Arrangements. On Friday of last week the remains of Mrs. John Cannon, of Wilmington, were brought here on the 1.30 P.M. express for burial. Previous to leaving home, Mrs. Anderson, the mother of deceased, had telegraphed in ample time to the proper persons her wishes in regard to the digging of the grave, attendance of undertaker, etc., and came here feeling confident that she would find every thing in readiness. Upon arrival at our station, however, and after the train had moved off, the funeral company found themselves the sole occupants of the premises. Neither undertaker, hearse or any one to represent that necessary portion of the funeral equipment, were on hand. Upon inquiry it was further discovered that no grave had been prepared and no preparations of any kind had been made. There was no alternative but to postpone the ceremony until the necessary arrangements could be made; so the remains of the deceased lady were allowed to remain at the railroad station, while the bereaved mother went about hunting up the proper person to attend to the making of the grave and looking up an undertaker. This was soon accomplished and the remains taken to the Free Methodist Church, where service was held, and the grave was prepared in the meantime. This was finally accomplished, and the same afternoon the burial took place at the M. E. cemetery on High street. The deceased was a former resident of this town-her maiden name being Haines,-and a relative of Mr. James McKinsey, formerly of this place, now residing in Philadelphia.
