FRIDAY, JAN. 21, 1898. IRTISH EShancEic 31. KcCiiliiftCP JLot.es !icr Life fi» 31 i! b:\zt It Lake. Sudden F.mSenjf of a Bright Voung Life. Death is almost invariably an unwelcome messenger, but when it comes without a moments warning to one in the full vigor of youth and health, snatching a beioved one from friends and companions, while that one is busy taking part in the sceues and activities of life, it brings with it an added shock to the living, who are thus rudely re minded of the very uncertain character of our mortality. It was with such a shock to our citizens came the announcement of the drowning of Miss Blanche M. McCallister, the assistant principal of the public school, on Friday evening last, the 14th inst. The literary society of the school held its regular weekly meeting, on that evening, and at the close of which, about 9 o'clock, Miss McCallister was prevailed upon by a number of her young pupils to accompaiiy them to the 4'dam" as the reser voir on the creek is called, to enjoy a short skate. Her im mediate companions were Nellie Cannon and Pearl Bradford, two of her pupils, and after the party had arrived at the ice and en joyed the sport for a short time Miss McCallister complained of being tired and sat down upon a cake of ice near the shore, while the two girls went off for another run before removing their skates. They were gone but a few min utes and were returning, when in the darkness they suddenly found themselves plunged in the icy waters of the little lake, but coming up managed to get their arms on the safe ice, and scream ed for help. Miss McCallister heard their cries, and hurrying to their assistance, in the dark ness also ran into the same open ing, but on the opposite side from where the girls had plunged down. The opening had been made that day by parties gather ing ice, and had been left without guard or signal of any kind. The continued cries of the two girls brought to their assistance a number of boys who were skating on another part of the lake, the first of whom to arrive was Percy Sand ford, who suc ceeded in getting the two young er girls out of the water. Immedi ately afterwards Frank Hilts also came upon the scene, and with the assistance of several companions who held him by the feet, leaned out over the thin ice and drew in the body of Miss McCallister, which was floating, apparently lifeless, a few feet from the safe ice. The rescued girls were immediately hurried to the nearest house, the home of Mr Raberge, a full half mile distant, where they were properly cared for, and very for tunately suffered no serious in jury from the accident. When the boys saw that the form of their teacher was undoubtedly lifeless, they as tenderly as pos sible carried it to the nearest place of shelter from the cold, which was rapidly freezing the the dripping clothing, and they reached Mr. Phalen's home in a few minutes. Medical assistance was at once summoned, and a brave and continued effort made to resuscitate, but without re ward. The body was afterwards removed to the home of Mayor Volkmar, and the sad news sent to the family at Madison. Mr. McCallister^ who is a traveling man, was reached at Sioux Falls, and by coming via Aberdeen, was enabled to joi* Mrs. Mc Callistei and their son at Bristol and arrived here Saturday night, returning to their home the fol lowing night with the remains tor interment at Madison. The sad affair cast a pall of gloom over the entire commun ity, and by request a memorial service was held at the Congre 'gational church Sunday after noon, the large edifice being packed to overflowing by citizens i who desired to show in this way their sympathy with the bereav ed friends and their esteem for the deceased young lady, who was so recently mingling with them in the duties and pleasures of life. Rev. Fitch and Rev. Williams each paid a short trib ute to the memory of the deceas ed and offered words of gospel consolation to the stricken friends. A number of very beautiful floral offerings were placed upon the casket from school and church associates of the young lady. The following resolutions were adopted by the board of educa tion as expressive of the esteem in which Miss Blanche was held by that body: WHIUEAS, dcntli has taken from ns onr esteem- i\l and efficient teacher, Alien JSlauche 1. Mc Cal lister. KKSOLVEIJ, that the Board of Education recog nizes the loss of a talented, fruitful worker, a bright scholar and an earnest, d-voted student, whose labors in the school room have been of the highest order, while her genial ninimern begot a tnendship in the heart* of Iter pupils which was ripening into a devoted love that time may never efface. It is a rare trait of character to lind brilliancy of intellect with apt ability to impart, so happily combined with the grace of u loving, sunshiny nature, as they were in the assistant principal of the Milbank high i-cbool. We remember with grateful hearts the last work she did at the literary, only one lioiir be fore the cruel, cold water closed her promising yonn life, when the biiovaiice of her cheerful Spirit lent inspiration and happiness to tl: exercises of the evening that will live in hal lowed remembrance in ti'.» hearts of every teach er and scholar who wan present that last night of our unbroken and happy school circle. I We extend to her parents and relatives our heartfelt svmpathy with the blessed assurance that "nothing but "leaves" will never be said of BO fruitful a life. The Christian Endeavor so ciety, of which Miss Blanche was a member, adopted resolu tions as follows: In view of the decease of Miss Blanche McCallister under circumstances so distressing as by drowning in the lake, it becomes us an her .friends, to enter in our records these minutes expressive nf the great sorrow we feel, and the deep sense of our lots in her death. e wish to recognize her always ready and cheery helpfulness pertaining to the work of our I society, and especially in the service of son:.'. The young people of the Congregational church will sadly miss her in social life and in all depart I merits of church work. And we will always as sociate her in our memory with her last act- the endeavor to save the lives of two of her devoted young friends. That she has passed from death unto life is to us the most sacred memory, lighting up the sad parting, knowing that ill the kingdom of eternal light our fnendstiip will be renewed. We extend all hu.nan sympathy to the stricken parents and members of the broken family circle, but we realize how weak is the warmest human affection unless the spirit cf Uod binds up the wounded soul. To liini we commend the broken hearted. In love we will all soon meet in the kingdom of light. Blanche M. McCallister was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. McCallister, of Madison S. D., and was born at Avoca, Wis., October 2, 1*70. The fam ily moved to Madison in 1881, where they have since lived, Miss Blanche graduating from the high school and taking a course in the normal school of that city in 1894. Immediately afterwards she was engaged by the board of education of this city, where she has since acted as assistant principal, her work as a teacher receiving the high est commendation, and her kind ly manners winning the love and friendship of her pupils. The father and mother of the deceas ed young lady are quite well known among the Masonic fra ternity of the state, Mrs. McCal lister being the grand secretary of the Order of the Eastern Star, a position she has occupied with credit since the organization of the grand chapter. The Madison Daily Leader speaks of the arrival of the re mains and funeral services as follows: A11 that is mortal of Blanche M. McCallister arrived on the 3 p. ni. traia irum the north. Those who arrived with tbe remains were the sorrowing parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Mc Callister, and son Bruce, Prof. Phillips, principal of the Milbank schools, Mrs. Thos. Kao"and Mrs. Wm. rint/.el. The near relatives, the Eastern Star ladies of this city to the number of forty, many of the Masonic brethren, the pupils of the High school and citizens were present at the depot to meet the funeral cortege and escort it to the home of the deceased. The pnll bearers were Masons, K. W. Ketc.hman, V\ C. Smith, A. K. Rippe, Win. Fintzel, N. I). McGillivray and 1). AicKinnon. The procensloa in slow and Consolidated April 11. 1^0 solemn form wended its way up Egan avenue i! e n e e a e o n a i s o n s e e o e a i y n dence. The funeral services were held from the far.!:! residence at 2 p. tn. to-day, a very large attend ance of sympathizing friends of the family i ing present. Over sixty vehicles were in r, procession that wended its solemn way to i cemetery. Iiev. ,1. C. Hubbell conducted ti. services at the house, taking as his text, "Hie sed are they that wait for Him," preaching there from a hopeful sermon on the Christian life and hope. The I'resbyterian church choir sun several of the familiar selections of the Hymnal, and the services throughout were very solennt and impressive. The floral tributes of friend* were lavish and beautiful, prominent ainon^ which were a large anchor, the memorial of her Presbyterian church friends, a beautiful pillow by the C. E. society, a cross by Misses Edna Scoit, Jessie Pierce and Alice Jenks, High school classmates, and "(jate« Ajar" by the Kastern Star ladies. These and many others of mem orial endearnieiit were laid upon the grave at til-', close of the exercises at the cemetery, all man! testing the high esteem in which the lovely character of the decased was held. The probabilities are that even those parties whose careless dis regard of the rights and priv ileges of others was the prime cause of the recent lamentable accident, now regret their own selfish negligence, but this does not atone l'or the evil which they have wrought. That the railroad company gave them the privilege of cutting the ice on condition that the opening made should be properly marked, and the knowledge that both day and night large numbers of young people were frequenting the lake for skating, should have prompt ed any reasonable person to mark the opening in some way for the protection of the skaters, with out any legal compulsion. But, when this was not done, and it was evident the very proper con ditions of the railroad company wore not being complied with, the city authorities could well have made some kind of a guard or danger signal and awaited a proper time for the punishment of those who refused to do their duty. The crin/inality of leaving a large opening i:i the ice and on a part of the lake frequented by any number of young people and children, and without fence or danger mark of any kind, creat ed a just sense of indignation among the people against those who were responsible for the calamity that followed their crim inal carelessness.
