A Good Man Gone
Francis De Long, one of the oldest, most enterprising and respected of the citizens of Marin, died suddenly on his ranch at Novato last Wednesday. Deceased was the most extensive general farmer in the county and went to his grave covered with honors that belong to a long and well spent life. His estate was a model to guide the husbandmen of this section as to what can be done by properly directed energy and enterprise. His son, Hon. F. C. De Long represents Marin and Contra Costa counties in the state senate.
