For the last few years he has been connected with the Lanyon Zinc Co. In the capacity of field manager of the company's gas field.

Mr. BUSLEY'S death came as a shock to the family and to his many friends. The funeral was held from the home Sunday at 2 p.m. Rev. FRENCH officiated. It was a large concourse of friends that met at the home and a cortege more than a mile long followed the remains to the LaHarpe cemetery. The burial rite was performed the Iola Masons of whose lodge Mr Busley was a member for a number of years.
