MIDLAND-Funeral of John P. McGeady. The funeral of John P. McGeady, who died Monday evening, took place from his late residence on Church Street Wednesday morning. The funeral cortege proceeded to St. Joseph's Catholic Church, of which he was a devoted member, where a requiem high mass was celebrated for the repose of his soul. After the mass Rev. J. J. Quinn, the pastor, paid a high tribute to the merits of the deceased. His high character, rigid honesty and fervid religious principles, followed by timely suggestions on the need of always being prepared for death being his theme. In the sanctuary with Father Quinn were Rev. J. J. Brady, of Meyersdale, Pa., and Rev. J. P. Nolan, of St. Mary's, Lonaconing, who knew and loved Mr. McGeady from their childhood. Mr. McGeady was one of the best known and most esteemed citizens of this community. An ardent lover of his adopted country, a favorite expression was "that as a long as we adhered to the provisions of the Constitution we could not go wrong." He considered it one of the greatest - if not the greatest - of all human documents and was thoroughly versed an all its details. He was also a strenuous believer, upholder of the doctrine of complete independence for Ireland - his native country. Broad minded and liberal in his views, charitable in all things, a good citizen and ardent Christian, he will be sorely missed, not only by his aged life partner and immediate family; but by his host of friends throughout the county. The funeral proceeded after mass, by automobile to Lonaconing, where the interment was made in the family lot in St. Mary's Cemetery. The pall bearers were: John McMahon, Petter Ennis, Thomas McGraw, William Monohan, John Murphy, Jas. P. Stakem."

Frank McGreevy Killed By Bandit-Former Westernporter Was Shot In His Lunch Room Near Irwin, Pa.-Frank J. McGreevy, aged 38 years, a native of Westernport, was shot and instantly killed by a bandit in a hold-up of his lunch room near Irwin, Pa., early last Friday morning. Three bandits, each about 20 years old, entered the barbecue stand shortly before 1 o'clock. Patrons were seated at tables in a room adjoining the lunchroom, and the trio delayed giving their orders for food until the other visitors departed. McGreevy became suspicious and went outside to obtain the license number of their automobile. He gave the number to his wife, Mrs. A. Ella McGreevy, 36, formerly of Hancock, Md., and told her to remember it, as she might have cause to use it later. Mrs. McGreevy and the couple's two children, Donald J., aged eight, and Frank, Jr., 14, retired soon afterward and were in bed when the shooting occurred. John A. Keplar, of McKeesport, whose wife, Mrs. Margaret Keplar, is employed at the barbecue, told police that his wife went to the kitchen to prepare the order for the three men and that he was standing in the doorway between the kitchen and the lunchroom when McGreevy was shot down. The bandits took $6 from the cash register and fled in a stolen car. Besides his widow and children, McGreevy is survived by his mother, Mrs. Nannie McGreevy, of Cumberland; by four brothers, D. Arnold and Bernard V. McGreevy, both of Cumberland; Owen P. McGreevy, of Westernport; and Thomas L. McGreevy, of Cleveland, Ohio, and by two sisters, Mrs. Norman E. Sell, of Cumberland, and Mrs. C.
