Julius Smith will be shocked to
learn of his death which occurred
suddenly last Thursday evening *
< "or some time Mr. Smith has
been troubled witli his heart ,
i ml only last week while attend-
ng court in Falls City lie suffered
a fainting spell that worried his
riends greatly , Hovvcyer , he
lad recovered from that and was
ecling'unusually well up until
supper time of the day of his
leath. Aftersupper he arranged
the work for the next week and
conversed quite cheerfully with
lis family. He left the house ,
and walked about the yard to
lis bee hives to attend to a little
work in that connection , hut be ;
ng absent sometime his family
went to look for him finding him
ying near a hive dead.
Julius Smith was born in
Germany March 5th , 1S37. At
the age of fourteen years ' \e
emigrated to America , making
the journe } ' across the ocean in a
sailing- vessel , landing in New
Orleans. In the spring of 1852 ,
lie started northward in search
of relatives who had proceeded
liim to America , and after much
difficulty he located tlu-m in St.
Josephi Mo. , where he com
menced working on a farm.
Availing himself of whatever
advantage the winter school's
afforded him he worked and
studied until 1S56 , at which time
lie came to Richardson County
and has lived with us ever since.
In 1862 he married Rosalie
Schmitt , of Brown Count ) ' , Kan
sas , who with eight children sur
Mr. Smith has always taken
an advanced position in public
affairs and was elected to the
legislature from this county in
18 % . serving with ability and
faithfulness to his people.
It is difficult to speak of such a
man as he analytically. He has
been one of us so long , having
lived on his farm of 320 acres for
the past thirty-eight years , we are
intimately acquainted with his
life and good qualities that a
plain recital of his
life's history seems fulsome
praise. It may all be summed
up in the statement that he was
a good citizen ; in every avenue
of his life he was that. No
more beautiful home life has been
lived anywhere than that found
in his home. Kind , considerate ,
just alwaj'S and at the same
time charitable and generous.
We could ill afford to lose him.
The heritage he bequeathed his
children , not that of great riches
but rather a good name , pleas
ant memories of a gcod father
will do much towards alleviating
the grief of those who are now
bowed in sorrow.
Besides the widow Mr. Smith
leaves the f < Mowing children :
Mrs. Dan Kell , Mrs. C. William
son , Mrs. L unbert Whitney ,
Mrs. George Cade , Mrs. Frank
Martin , Mable Smith , and Isaac
Smith , as weil as two brothers
Hon. Chas. Smith , Peter Smith ,
and one sister Mrs. Chas. Poor.
