The heavy had of death has placed again its grasp on one of our beloved brothers and taken from our midst one of our Order. On the 12th of Febuary 1899, brother Charles Buck, after an honest upright life of devotion to the principles of our Order, a life for the advancement of the fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man-crossed over the dark river and entered upon the threshold of eternity. The Deceaced was always true to the principels of our order. The field of Odd-fellowship had for him many attractions, and his devotion to duty, the application of his time and energies to help the needy and those in distress-"to do" instead of "to be"-are the pleasant landmarks that those who survive him behold. Though dead, his frailties are buried with him, his virtues shall be ever fresh and green in our memories. Dewey, the youngest son of John A. and Mary E. Ryan of Winthrop, departed this life Sunday morning, January 22, 1899, after a severe illness of 15 days of lung fever. he was an unusually bright child, and, being the toungest, was the pet of the household. he was always cheerful and ready to play and loved by all who saw him. He was a sweet baby, far too sweet to dwell in this sinful world and teast of its sorrows and cares. His tempeture ranged from 103 to 106 during his sickness, and through almost parched with fever he bore his sufferings with patience. Al that loving hands could do did not lessen his pain. Sunday morning God's summoning angel came and bore his spirit to its home above. He was born Febuary 15, 1898, and was 11 months and 7 days of age. He leaves a heart broken father and mother, brothers and sisters and a host of friends and relatives to mourn his loss. The place he has left in our home can never be filled. It seems hard to give up those we love and cherish as we did little Dewey, but we must remember that our father doeth nothing wrong, and make our preparations to meet our darling in his heavenly home. Mr.Charles B. Stuart, a prominent lawyer of Lafayette and chief attorney of the Wabash Railroad, died Monday evening from Bright's disease of the kidneys. Deceased was well and favorably known here and enjoyed the respect and esteem of the entire Bar of this place. Frank Cadwallader of attica, who was ill for several months, died last thursday and the funeral occurred last Friday afternoon at the M. E. Church in that place, Rev. H. G. Ogden officiating. The interment was made in Riverside Cemetery. Deceased was the brother of Ira Cadwallader of West Lebanon and Mrs. Lou Clifton of Chicago. Died at his home in Winthrop, Sunday morning at 12:30 o'clock, John S., youngest son of Elmer and Ella Huskins, afteran illness of six weeks. He was a bright child and, being the youngest, was the pet of the household. All that loving hands could do did not lessen his pain till the Angle of Death came and bore his spirit to its heavenly home. John Sylvester Huskins was born August 23, 1898, and was 5 months and 12 days of age. it seems hard to give up our loved ones, but the lord giveth and He taketh away. The bereaved parents have the greatest sympathy of the community in their sad hour of grife. The remains were laid to rest Monday at 2p.m. in the James Cemetery. We leave the rest to our Father in heaven who doeth all things well.
