The funeral of the late Noah Corey, whose death occurred yesterday in San Luis Obispo, will take place at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from the mortuary chapel of H. V. Muller. The remains are expected to arrive this evening on the 8 o'clock train.

The deceased was one of the pioneers of the Toro section, having settled there more than twenty-five years ago. He lived there continuously until the death of his wife in 1904, when he moved to San Luis Obispo and has since made his home with his daughter, Mrs. J. C. Tanner.

Mr. Corey was a native of Canada and was aged 80 years, 11 months and 21 days. He leaves to mourn his passing two brothers, Hiram Corey of Las Palmas and Reuben Corey of Pescadero; one son, J. P. Corey of Agenda, and one daughter, Mrs. J. C. Tanner of San Luis Obispo, besides a number of grandchildren.

His remains will be laid to rest in the I. O. O. F. cemetery.
