On October 17, he was taken with fever and inflammation and grew steadily worse, until death relieved his sufferings. McCrackeu Enter prise. On Monday afternoon and evening a man' with three small boys and an little girl five years old gave an exhi bition on the street in the way of music, singing and dancing. It seems to us that such proceedings are a dis grace and a shame. A great lazy man making a living off of four small children none of whom looked strong enough to stand the exposure to which they are subjected. The little girl had a wonderful voice and has been" forced to use it in such a manner that she will soon lose it entirely. The act was bad enough itself and the people who go and look on and en courage and permit it, are as guilty of as much a sin as the father who is willing to start his family on a down ward road fco ruin. - - For Sale. - Bronze turkeys.

When a child her parents moved back to Abingdon, and a few years afterwards to Wa-Keeney, Kansas, and afterwards to Washing ton Territory and Oregon and finally to Pueblo, Colo., where she was woed and won by her husband Lawrence Roy Neargarder.

Two lit tle boys, Russel Dawdyand Merl Wil son, with the bereaved husoand sur vive. Mrs. Neargaraer was of a happy and cheerful disposition. Mentally she was bright, refined and an interesting conversationalist. She, when young was fond of travel, and, owing to the migratory moods of her parents, her girlhood was crowded with varied and shifting scenes. The beautiful and sublime in nature were fascinating to her and she was enamored with the beauteous mountain streams and flow ers, and touched. by the grandeur of the great canyons, the lofty crags and towering peaks. In girlhood she was attracted easily by superb oratory and was an enthu siast with respect to faultless dra matic reading. She once took train ing in elocution and wonaDemorest medal in a declamatory contest at Wa-Keeney, Kansas, in 1889. She was deeply attached to her schoolmates at various places where they lived, and she kept up and great ly enjoyed an epistleatory correspond ance with them after she had arrived at womanhood. She was ever glad to" hear of them and of their success. The funeral was at the Christian church on Saturday afternoon when a solemn gathering met to pay the last tribute of homage and listen to the sermon of the pastor:' . After the funeral, the mourners and friends followed the hearse to the city cemetery where the beautiful white casket containing all that was mortal of Pearl Morse Neargarder was ten derly lowered into the grave.- -Abingdon (111.)
