The sad news reached us Tuesday
of the death of Frank Ford, only son
of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Ford, former
residents of this city, who have the
heartfelt sympathy of their many
friends here in their bereavement.
James Frank Ford, son of Mr. and
Mrs. J. T. Ford, was born in Trego
county, Kansas, July 14, 1888. With
his parents he removed to Rush coun
ty in 1898, and to Emporia, Kansas, in
1900, where he died October 31, 1901,
at the age of 13 years, 3 months and
17 days. 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. -

Her maiden name was Pearl Eliza
beth Morse, and she was the daughter
of Horace F. and Belle Morse, the lat
ter now being Mrs. J. W. Brown She
was born at Shenandoah, Iowa, No
vember 11, 1875. 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.
They were united in marriage at
Pueblo. Colo., January 22, 1892, and
their wedded life was blissful and
happy. Three children were born to
them, one dying in infancy. 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

Concerning which so much has been said, is a
disintegrated mica granite. It has been
chemically prepared by the great fires of
. nature in prehistoric days, so as to grad
ually weld together with all the flexibili
ty of asphalt and the durability of gran
ite. The granite is quarried at Sherman,
Wyo., on the Union Pacific, and used
on that road for ballest. Travelers over
the Union Pacific therefore, escape the
dust and dirt which makes a trip over the
lines of its less fortunate rivals so annoy
