BLAKELY MEETS TRAGIC DEATH Last Sunday evening about dusk the quiet of the hour was disturbed by several sharp pistol shots ringing out in quick succession intermingled with the screams of a woman. Sev eral' who were in the .immediate neighborhood hurried to-' the scene and .found that our townsman and fellow citizen, 3'. W. . Blakely, had been shot while attempting to pro tect Mrs. Frank O'-Neil who it seems had been having trouble with her husband. "Mrs. O'Neil is connected with the Blakely family by marriage and hearing her cries Mr. Blakely went to her assistance. A struggle took place between the two men in which Mr. Blakely was shot three times. He was immediately taken to Dr. Jones' office and given surgi cal treatment but was so badly wounded that at 6:30 o'clock Monday morning he died at his home where be had been removed after the dress ing of his wounds... It is neediess to say that the tragedy cast a deep gloom over every one in this commu nity. The shock of his untimely death while still in full mental and physical Vigor seems something that people cannot get J over, and x deep and lasting sadness has been over every one since the tragedy occurred. No one can help admiring him for his courage in . trying to protect the weak in distress evea though the act cost him his ' life and his name will go down in the ' history of Trego county as a citizen that lived like a man, and died like a hero. Mr. Blakely was born in Enniskll len, Ireland, June 28, 1348, and came to Grant county, "Wis., with his par ents when 3 years of age. On No vember 25, 1877, he was united in marriage to Mattie E. ' Chewning. Six children were born to this union all of whom survive their father, Roy W., Mrs. Anna B. Rich, Ross J., Guy, Robert - and Eugsne, all resi dents of Trego county. In 1886, -Mr. Blakely moved from H1 1 co 9 n t y , . N eb. ta, Trego, co u n ty , Kansas, where he has since resided. Besides the children mentioned he leaves a widow and a sister, Mrs. Ra chel Perry, of Plattsvilie, Wis., and many warm friends to mourn his loss. It is needless to speak of his many sterling qualities, integrity and worth as a citizen for he was so well known that all of these attributes were soon recognized and appreciat ed by those who came in contact with him. The achievements of his life and unfailing perseverence in a coontry that called for untiring in dustry are well known. The meas ure xf success that crowned his ef forts in a material way was well earned and his standing as one of the foremost citizens is beyond question. On Tuesday at 1 o'clock the fun eral was held at the Methodist church where many sympathizing friends congregated to pay their last respects to the dead. Rev. Allison conducted the service and preached. a heart searching and far reaching sermon, after the services . here the funeral procession formed and went to Ogallah where the interment took place in the family hurrying ground. The World joins with every one in this community in offering heartfelt sympathy to all who have passed un der such a great sorrow and affliction and while in a sense it is a vain attempt to measure the loss of one near and dear by so tragic a death yet we are assured that death is a link that binds us to the great be yond and that Immortal Hope stands a friendly beacon beyond the grave. Card of Thanks To all our friends and neighbors whose sympathy and services were so kindly tendered to us in our time of such great sorrow and affliction we desire to express our heartfelt appre ciation and thanks.

To the Democratic Voters of Trego 1 County Ladies and Gentlemen: Please pardon my calling your at tention to two candidates with whom I have had a tony -acquaintance, and that I feel it my duty to recommend to your earnest support. The first is ex-Chief Justice Frank Doster for U. S. Senator, and Hon. E. C. Prather of our neighboring county of Gove for State Superintendent of Insurance. Time and space will not permit me to say more than a small portion of what I would like to say for these candidates. Most of you are acquaint ed with the fact that Judge Doster has made -.his home in Topeka for several years, he formerly resided in Marion county,-and was judgeof that district. The M"arion Review says of him after reviewing his history: "He is in e very way the best equipped and strongest candidate announced for senator." The Clay Center Dispatch says: "That Mr. Doster is the man among them all pre-eminently fitted to represent the very best of Kansas citizenship in the highest legislative body. He has all of Ingalls brilliance and mental power with a steadiness that Ingalls did not possess." Judge Doster has comrades in this state and in our . county, are very loyal to the boy soldier who enlisted at 15 years of oge. Your earnest help will carry the county for a truly good and great man. I wish to say for Mr. Prather that he is thoroughly acquainted with Insurance Depart ment work, an honest and lavel head ed man. Respectfully submitted, Adv E. D. Whselsb.
