About 15 years ago Mr. VANORDER took the position of captain on the Frontenac on Cayuga Lake. In that capacity he served four years and later went to Seneca Lake, where he was captain on the lake steamer for two years. His health began to fail about that time and he was obliged to retire from active life. With his wife, 8 years ago, he moved to Harrisburg to live with his daughter, Mrs. Lena FAHNESTOCK. Beside his wife and daughter, the captain is survived by four sisters, Mrs. D. SAVAGE, Mrs. Helen M. WARREN, and Mrs. Almira L.
