act of shooting off a fire cracker when a can of powder near by

death five hours afterward. The funeral services occurred here
Saturday morning at St. Francis' Catholic Church, Rev. Father
Cavanaugh officiating. Interment in Catholic cemetery.

82 years, 3 months and 15 days. Deceased was born in Russia, on March
5, 1820. When twenty years old he emigrated to the United States and
settled in Pottsville, afterwards moving to Fremont, where he was
married to Miss Caroline HEICHEL. In November, 1853, he moved to
Karthaus where he has since resided.
Mr. KOPP was a good Christian man practicing the Golden Rule in his
everyday life. He was a member of the Lutheran church for sixty-eight
years. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having served his country
for the preservation of the Union, at which time he contracted
diseases form which he suffered almost constantly for 37 years.
He is survived by his aged wife and two sons, W.J., of Karthaus, and
D.H. of Altoona; also by eight grandchildren.
His chair is empty now
On which he used to sit,
So we must humbly bow
And to God's will submit.
