Dcathtof n Pioneer.
Volnoy Curtis, ono of Box ltutto
county's pioneers, passed away nt his
homo five miles south of town nt 0:40
p. m. on Wednesday of last week.
Tho funeral services were hold in
tho Cougrcgntlonnl church on Friday.
The number of vehicles which followed
tho depnrted to his last resting plnco
bore strong testimony to the respect
nnd lovo of his neighbors nnd friends.
Volncy Curtis wns born in Ohio
April lit, 1820. Ho received n common
school education nnd enrly developed
marked musical talent. Ho was one
of tho singers in Onmsvllle, Ohio, in
his younger days.
lie was married January 1, 1851, to
Emily Walter. Five children, Minnie,
Hyron, Wnlter, Clarence nnd Ilorthn
wero born to them. Tho first two died
during youth. The others survive him.
His first wifo was a helpless invalid
for eight years. During nil that time
ho cared for her faithfully, giving con
stant evidence of his kindliness of
heart nnd ablllty"to care for and com
fort tho nfilicted.
in 1877. nfter his first wlfo hnd been
dead for some years he wns united in
marriage to Mrs. Alice King of Haven
nu, Ohio. To tlfom wero born a son
nnd n daughter, llennett C. Curtis and
Mrs. Mabel Pierce, both of whom re
side in Box llutte county.
A member of tho Christian church in
Ohio ho united with tho Congregation
al church upon settling in, this county.
Ho was tho youngest of a family .of
eight children, two of which survive
Mr, Curtis was known of nil men to
be u true and consistent christian; n
man upright and honorable in his
dealings; a true friend in time of
iroublo, nnd nt tho Inst scenes for
others willing nnd competent help.
Given the gift by God to sing and to
sing sweetly he did not hide his talent
nwny but used it both for tho enter
tninment and edification of the living
and for tho last sad rites for tho dead.
Ho made the most of those gifts with
which he wus endowed nnd thus in
sight of men, nnd we trust in sight of
God, mnkes up the sum of a successful
Kev. Mr. Gardner spoke beautiful
and touching words in his sermon,
words that will be treasured by tho
mourning ones during the dark hours
of their bereavement nnd nlso when
tlmo has taken its poignancy away.
Mr. Curtis was gathered to his fath
er in fullness of years and he was by
record of a well filled past, ready to
go. At the ocension of tho death of Ms
eldest son Mr. Curtis composed n poem
which shows that he had ability to
speak in measured numbers. Lick of
spaco forbids its publication.

Our village was visited by a travel

nesday evening, of last week. Ho
gave nn c.s-riibitlon of his tnlents in the
evening nt Woodman hall. Those
who wero there say that he could imi
tate a whole brass band nnd play the
guitar at the same time; nlso, thnt he
could slug tenor, bass, alto, soprano,
mezzo and contralto all at the same
time, and for variety mix in a little
baritone. Such n man of genius is
certainly wasting his talents hand
