Answered the Last Roll Call. Died April 30, 1899. of catarrhal fever and paralysis Thonias Tarpy, aired seventy two years. Deceased was born at Manchester, England, February 13, 1827. At an early age he learned the trade of a machinist, which, occupation he fol lowed after coming to the United States, which we think was about the years '52 or '53. He enlisted in a New York regi ment at the breaking out of the war. After serving awhile as brigade bugler he was assigned to a brigade band where he served until the close of the war. He was twice married. His first marriage was in England, (time not known to us) three children were born to this union, all of whom to gether with the wife died within one week with typhoid fever at Cleveland, Ohio, (we think) in 1871. The de ceased has told us that he was so de lerious with the fever at the time of his unfortunate loss of his family that he knew nothing of their death or burial until after his recovery. After this he drifted westward, in fact, worked in many places in -Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas. Our personal acquaintance began with the deceas ed about the 15th of March, 1879, at which timea group of about a dozen men, who were domiciled in a 16x16 board shantv, who were then survey ing out a townsite one-half mile east of Ogallah. His oddities at once be came detected and he was soon put under the fire of all manner of gibes. The rousters soon discovered that they were trying to squeeze a hornet who was capable of taking care of himself, and thus he soon became a favorite. Since then he has been rec ogized as one of the old crowd of "79. So much for reminiscence. About ten years ago he married a second time Mary Oline who is now pronounced an incurable at the In sane asylum at Topeka, Kansas. One child was born to them, now nine years old, Benjamin Harrison Tarpy and "Duke of Ogallah.-' If it uiav be said that all men leave an impression behind them when they depart hence then above all that our deceased neighbor left with us is tl.e impression - of absolute, honesty, A most positive disposition, a devotion to friends seldom equaled, a contempt for enemies never. So independent in disposition that if caught in -mid-ocean on an ice float he would not humble himself to ask one of her Ma jesty's vessels to heave along side and take him off The loss of Thomas Tarpy is truly and deeply mourned in this neighbor hood. Faults that are mortal may have been his, but our memory recurs to so many of his good qualities of heart that with these and our tears they are lost to sight. In that Great Resurrection morn of which we talk and sing, when the righteous and the just and all shall be gathered togeth er, all to be judged by that Great Un erring Judge, when every motive and parpose in life shall have been put in the balance and weighed, may we in dulge in the hope that Thomas Tarpy will be found entitled to that better immortality.
