Obituary. Mr. and Mrs. John Smart of Hedrick laid their little infant daughter to rest in the Redwood Cemetery, October the 21st. The little life was spared, only seventeen days, but as we give her up to the Ruler of heaven and earth, we know her sufferings are over, that she is robed in spotless white, crowned with the jewel of heaven. She has only gone on before, may we all prepared to meet the little angel when our days on earth are ended. In memoriam. Samuel M. Frame, Sr., died Sept. 17, 1892, aged 74 years, 11 months, and 20 days. He had gone to Danville to be treated for cancer on the hand. The application being so terribly severe that to relieve himself, it is thought by friends that he unwittingly took too much morphine, and perhaps shorted his sufferings. The deceased was born in Pribble County, Ohio, and lived there most of his time until his marriage to Miss Vitriah Ammerman, who still survives him and feels his loss most keenly. In politics Mr. Frame was a Republican and cast his first presidential vote for General William Henry Harrison, grandfather of our present and worthy president. The writer heard him repeatedly express a desire to live to cast his vote for the re-election of Benjamin Harrison. During the war, he was no careless observer, but espoused his country's cause, rejoiced in all her successes and mourned over her reverses. And no one rejoiced more at the return of peace than he. Soon after his marriage, he came to Warren County, Indiana, and was a pioneer and mingled with the pioneers of this vicinity, many of whom sleep by his side in the West Lebanon Cemetery. Mr. Frame served as a county commissioner for twelve years with great acceptance to his constituents. To the mind of the writer, the most important point in his life was when he and his young wife some fifty years ago confessed their faith in the Lord Jesus as their savior and their only hope, and were baptized by D. D. Hall of blessed memory. He lived a faithful member of the Christian Church to the day of his death. Brother Frame was a man who always had the courage of his convictions. If he hesitated it was not certain whether the path of duty led to the right or to the left, but his mind made up and he was a true as the needle to the poles. He loved his family and his friends and that is the secret why we all respected and loved him. His funeral was preached in the Christian Church in West Lebanon by Elder Conner to a large and heart stricken congregation. It is said that the speaker acquitted himself nobly and grandly on that occasion. When the sermon was ended all that was mortal of Brother Frame was laid to rest.
