Walnut From Own Trees Fashioned By Freeport Farmer for Self and Kin.

Freeport, PA., Dec. 8.-The solid walnut casket which Angus GALBRAITH, Armstrong county farmer, kept in his house for 15 years against the day he should die, was underground today.

GALBRAITH, 88, buried in Freeport cemetery, in a grave he had dug and caulked with pitch at the same time he obtained his funeral bier.

Fifteen years ago, he selected trees from his own farm, and had three caskets made at a Freeport planing mill-one for his wife, one for a sister and one for himself.

Friends said he kept the caskets in his home.

Then he had excavated two graves in Freeport cemetery, lines the sides with tar, and filled them in.

His wife died eight years ago. The second grave was opened again and GALBRAITH went to join her.

One walnut casket still awaits the passing of the sister.
