Died, at the residence of his son-in-law,
Mr. T. B. Rice, in this city Monday
morning, November 4th, 1889, G. W.
Wallace, aged seventy-one years.
The deceased was in his usual health
up to Sunday morning, the 3d inst., when
he was suddenly taken with severe spells
of vomiting, caused by an acute attack
of indigestion, after which congestion
of the bowels and kidneys set in, result
ing in his death the following morning.
G. W. Wallace was born in Old Frank
lin, Howard county, Missouri, November
2tith,1818. He was married May 1st,
1839, to Lucinda Jamison, who preceded
him to the grave about fourteen years,
dying in 1875. He was the father of
eight childrenone of whom died in in
facy another at the age of fifteen years.
Six are still living, married and with
families; two 'reside in Saline county,
Missouri, one near Olathe, Kansas; one
in Bates county, Missouri; one in Dallas,
Texas, and the other, Mrs. Mary L. Rice,
in Dodge City. He was converted and
joined the Baptist church in this city in
The funeral services were held at the
residence Monday evening, at eight
o'clock, conducted by .the Masonic fra
ternity, who attended in a body to do
reverence and pay tribute to their de
parted brother. The remains were ship
ped to Saline count', Missouri, where
they will be laid beside those of his wife.
Rev. W. H. Rose, of the M. E. church,
made a short and beautiful address, of
which the following is an outline :
"The presence of the dead always
makes us sad. When we stand by the
open grave or at the casket where lies
the lifeless form of a friend or neighbor
a feeling of deep solemnity takes hold of
us. Our hearts are troubled with our be
reavement or we sympathize with the
bereaved. But whatever may be our re
lation to the dead our thought and feel
ings should be influenced by the circum
stances of the life and death of the dead,
the age attained, the suffering relieved,
the spiritual condition and preparation,
and the condition in which the bereaved
ones are left for life's struggles, are im
portant factors in the makeup of our
thoughts on such occasions. It always
seems better to us that one should reach
a ripe old age than to be cut off in the
prime of life, when its responsibilities
are heaviest upon them. It seems better,
too, that one should die a natural death
with their friends than meet with an ac
cident. And further, we recognize it as
far better for their eternal good that our
dead should have made their peace with
God and stand so related to His Divine
Justice that there would be no fear of
the judgment. The sorrow must come
to us in bereavement. But these condi
tions as well as our own trust in God are
helpful in allaying our grief. We are
happy to point the sorrowing ones to
these conditions as having been met in
the case of our brother. He had lived a
little beyond the allotted 'three score
and ten.' He had reached this mature
age without being compelled to give up
active life. Naturally fond of out door
exercise and sports he had been able to
continae them to within less than two
days of his death. -"He
had seen his children grow up to
maturity and to be blessed with families
of their own. He had witnessed the
death of the wife of his young manhood
some fovrteen years before his own de
cease. Life's responsibilities had been
very largely removed from him. More
over, he had committed himself to the
mercy of God and exercised faith in
Christ ac his Savior and was able to trust
Him.. Should not all these considera

tions cause us to be reconciled to the
parting, and press on to the time of the
glad meeting over death's dark river?
The thought of death, coming so unex
pectedly as in this case, sometimes adds
to our sorrow. Jsut is mere not here a
cause for rejoicing? But a little time of
suffering; a short period of watching
and anxiety; the sufferer is released;
the anxiety passed, and his spirit with
God. Let us look to Him 'who doeth all
things well' for our strength and guid
ance. Died, in this city, at his home on
Fourth Avenue, Mr. Frank Black, aged
forty-four years and eight months.
Frank Black was born in Clinton coun
ty, Ohio, emigrated to Kansas live years
ago, spent one year in Sedgwick count',
and four years has made his home in
Ford county, living on his homestead
four miles west of the city most of the
time. His sickness came sudden and un
expected. He was taken with neuralgia
ten days ago and the pain was so severe
that from the first the disease seemed to
take hold with fatal effect. All that
medical skill, with the care that a devot
ed wife and brother could give, did not
avail, and he realized from the first that
his sickness might prove fatal. He was
a kind neighbor, a faithful friend and an
indulgent father. He passed away sur
rounded by kind neighbors and friends.
He was a member of the United Brethren
church for twelve years and attended the
Methodist church here. He was not re
signed to go at first but was spared to
make a timely preparation and his death
was triumphant and very impressive.
He said, "Oh! Lord, take me!" A
friend asked, "Are you ready to go?" and
he answered "I am ready." These were
his last words.
He leaves a wife and five children.
Three children are living in the far west;
one at Seattle, Washington, to which
place Mr. Black was making preparations
to move. He was a member of Lewis
Post, G. A. R., of this city, and marched
with Sherman to the sea. He was a
member of Company H, 39th Ohio Vol
unteer Infantry, enlisting January, 18&1.
Funeral services, were held to-day at
ten o'clock, at the M. E. Church, Rev.
J. M. Wright conducting the services.
