Tho villngo of rerrjsbtirfr bus been
called upon to Buffer the loss of ti
good intm nml on enterprising citizen.
Charles L. Koch, in the prime or
life, was summoned to higher realms.
Without warning death took him;
with no thought of danger, and while
on a mission of pleasure to others, in
quest of something to' brighten and
onrich tho lives of those whoso care
was bkveonstant thought, ho departed
from his homo in tho morning, his
last words boing n cheerful and af
fectiouato parting, his heart lilled
with tho joy of doing for otheis, ho
was suddenly called away.
This life has many a trying test
Tho life wo livo for others is tho best.
So lived Charles L. Koch. His
constant effort was in doing some
thing for those who were dependant
on him. He did not confine his good
deeds nlouo to those of his family, but
noyer overlooked an opportunity to
nhpd n. little sunshine upon those
whoso lives were darkened by tho
cloudB of adversity. No person was
too poor or friendless for him to send
a few UowcrB when siokuess vi&ited
them; he was never loo busy to do a
kindness for a neighbor; he always
found timo to help a worthy person
or assist in a worthy cause. Always
cheerful, oven when tho most busy
and under tryiner circumstances, he
had a kind word and a pleasautgreet
ing for everybody. Thus he lived,
doing good wherever ho found an op
portunity, liyiug a christian life ac
cording to the light given him, and
to such as ho
"It mutters not nt what hour ol the dny
'llio righteous fall asleep; death rnniiot come
To him untimely who is lit to die;
The less of this cold world, Ihemnrc oflnncn

It is rather hard for Secretary Taft

keep ono oyo on all the lids of neigh
boring countries and dependencies.
There has been some heated dis
cussion recently over tho question of
whether our warships mo honestly
built in privato shipyards. Charles
Cramp has come out in a heated de
fense of tho private ship builder, and
there aro a number of naynl oflicers
and others who insist that tho gov
ernment is tho only ono to build war
ships and ships otherwise built are
not and never can be tho real thing.
Fortunately this discussion, to use a
favorite phrase of the President, is,
largoly academic. This country has
not been engaged in a war for son
years, and it is to bo doyoutly horyil
that it will not bo again for miy
years to come. At the same tin it
might bo recollected that iu tliepnst
American warships, whethor built in
goyernmont or privato yard, have
given a tolerably good ocount of
themselves. In fact, tlioio is very
little to criticiso in tho performance
or any Amoricau warship whon it
came to tho tost. John Paul Jones
hcniped up his original lleet any
where. Some wore captured, all wore
priyato built, aud tho most wore not
ovou seaworthy. Yet ho managed to
give a tolerably good account of him
self. The Constitution was built iu
u private yard, and yet eho did a fow
things that peoplo remomber. So
far as modern ironclads aro concern
ed, there aro a number of Spanish
naval officers out of a job yet who
might testify as to their all round of
licioncy, aud yot ono of tho most ef
fective vessels in tho fight at Santiago
was a "lame duck", tho old Texas,
and built in a government yard at
that. Really, wo havo not much rea
son to quarrol oror Amoricau war
ships, liowovcr thoy lire built.

Facts aro stranger than fiction. All
plays depend more or less on facts for
The story of "Human Hearts" is
almost drue in every detail. The in
cidents that form the plot are well
known, and still food for gossip in the
community where they happened.
The author of the play met the origi
nal 'Tom Logan,' several years ago,
and heard tho story from his own lips.
Becoming deeply interested he jour
neyed to 'Logan's' home, where he
met most of the other characters who
round out the cast of his play. When
he asked permission to dramatise the
story, it was rapidly granted on the
condition that he would change the
names of the characters so that they
would not be recognizable by anyone
not familar with the story. The re
sult has been a play that has had a
yiyid interest for more lovers of all
that is good and true in melodrama,
than any other dramatic composition
of the last decade. "Human Hearts"
will be shown at Burt's Sunday after
noon for all week.
CARD OF THANKS
We desire to thank our neighbors
and friends for the many kindnesses
