On Saturday afternoon last, we heard with grief of the death of A. P. Luse, of Chicago, which occurred at Los Angeles, Cal., Friday evening, Jan. 16th. His remains will be brought to Crawfordsville and tomorrow will be interred at Oak Hill Cemetery, the services taking place at Center Church at 9 o’clock, to be conducted by President Tuttle of Wabash College.A. P. Luse was born at Indianapolis April 3, 1831, and learned the printer’s trade in the office of the Sentinel of that city. He attended Wabash College from 1849 to 1851, but did not graduate there. In 1852, in company with his brother, he purchased the Lafayette Journal and entered into business on his own account. In 1854 he was married to Miss Sarah Wade of that city. Mrs. Luse died July 11, 1884. In the fall of 1854 he went to davenport, Ia., where for fourteen years he was engaged in the printing and stationery business, in which he was successful. On the 1st of January 1869, he purchased an interest in the firm of Schofield, Marder & Co., proprietors of the Chicago Type Foundry, and the firm became Marder, Luse & Co., as it now remains. When the firm was incorporated under the State law in 1883, Mr. Luse, on account of the precarious condition of his heath, withdrew from active participation in business affairs and for four years made his residence in Crawfordsville, where he won many warm friends. After that time he traveled extensively in Europe, Florida and California, and made his last trip to the latter state in the hope of bettering his physical condition. The hope, however, proved illusory, and his friends were soon called upon to mourn his death.

Mr. Luse was a man of modest and unassuming deportment, irreproachable habits, unswerving integrity, iron will and the kindliest of sympathies and impulses. He had acquired a moderate fortune, every dollar of which was honestly gained. Mr. Luse left an adopted daughter, Miss Althea. His three brothers survive him, James P., Register of the Land Office at Rapid City, S. D., Cyrus P., residing at Minneapolis, and Fleming T., editor and proprietor of the Review in this city. His widowed sister, Mrs. A. L. Bosserman, now resides at Lafayette.
