Judge T.C. Jones, as chairman of the committee, appointed at a previous meeting to draft resolutions, after a few very appropriate remarks, presented the following preamble and resolutions, which were adopted :

The sudden and unexpected death of John H. Klippart will be regarded by all who are connected with the agricultural interest of the country, as a most severe and irre. parable loss. To us who have been more intimately associated with Mr. Klippart in the great work of his life—some of us for a period of nearly a quarter of a century-this is a most serious affliction. We know how constantly and unremittingly his energies have

been devoted to this work-how generonsly, and without thought of pecuniary gain, hig life bas been given to the promotion of the welfare of the agricultural population of the country. We look about in vain for a man of the same capacity, and the same general knowledge of the sciences connected with agriculture in their practical application that will devote himself to the work, with the same patient and unselfish assiduity, to fill his place; and as we aro here assembled to participate in these last sad ceremonies, we add to these brief expressions of our appreciatiou of the value of the public services of our deceased friend, our testimony to the many good and amiable traits of his character as developed in social and official life.

In our visits to the Capitol of the State, as we made our accustomed calls at the department of agriculture, we were ever met with bis kindly groetings, with a readinese to serve us in any possible way—and these kindly offices were shared by people of all classes that had business at these rooms—the poor and the humble, as well as men of wealth and position. His enthusiasnı and hope rendered him always confident and persevering under the most discouraging circumstauces, and inspired hope and enthusiasm in others. Whether at the office, i be annual exbibition of the Board, or in his own happy household, we have ever found him the same genial, benevolent and kind-hearted and companionable friend; and,

Resolved, That we offer the family of the deceased, who have lost a kind husband and father, our sincere condolence in this sad honr, and that we commend them to that One who is the widow's stay and the orphau's help.

Resolved, That as a further testimony of our profound respect for the memory of the deceased, the members and ex-members of the Ohio State Board of Agriculture attend bis funeral in a body, and, also, that the rooms of the State Board be draped in mourning for thirty days.

Resolved, That a copy of the above be spread upon our minutes, and a copy also furpished to the family of the deceased and to the press of the State,



The Secretary of a meeting of the State officers, Supreme Court and Commission, reported the adoption of the following:

WHEREAS, It has pleased Almighty God to call from our midst Hon. John H. Klippart, late Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture; and whereas, in this afflictive dispensation of Providence, society has lost one of its most valued citizens, the State a useful and upright officer, his friends a genial and esteomned companion, his family a beloved husband and father; and whereas, in our personal and official relations, we bave ever found him a genial, cultured, and refined associate; therefore,

Resolved, That we tender to his family our warmest sympathies in tbis, their heartfelt affliction.

Resolved, That wo attend his funeral in a body.

Resolved, That these resolutions be printed in the Cincinnati and Columbus papers, and that a copy be forwarded by the secretary of this meeting to the family of the doceased.
