REPUBLIC SPECIAL .
" 'Macon. Mo, Oct ,26. The Rsvrrend W. R
Skinner preached a funeral sermon at the
Methodist Church it Bioomlngton. Macon
County, this morning tor a man who had
been dead forty-five years. This long de
layed discourse was in obedience to the pe
culiar deslra of Mrs. L. G. Patrick that at
her death the officiating minister should de
liver a' Joint sermon as the last tribute to
her dead husband and-herself.
Ludson G. Patrick died in Bioomlngton.
the county seat of Macon County.ln August,
1S37. at the age of 2? years. The young
wife refused to permit any one to deliver
a funeral discourse, stating that at her
death, no matter how far ahead in the
future it might occur, she wanted both ser--mons
preached at the eaine time to show
that she was true to her first and dearest
love. Mra. Patrick was 72 years old when
she died and her husband would have been
the some age.
The minister, who was but a child when
Patrick died, had been supplied with data
of his life and delivered as complete a
biography as he would of a man whose
death had been recent. There were -many
old wbltefieaded settlers in the audience
that bad been boys with Patrick and re
msmbered him welL The church where the
services were held to-day Is located within
fcrty yards of the spot where Patrick's
bones have been resting eo long.
In his discourse the minister contrasted
the life, bustle and prosperity of the town
at the time of the husbands death with
Its present situation, bock In the country,
far from all railroads and but a memdry
of its active past. One had died when the
JoWu seemed to old fair t become one of
the most Important points in the State: the
other lived to -see it pass through the throes
of the Civil War. lose the county seat as
a military necessity and nearly" all its in
dustries and commercial enterprises ani
dwindle to a smull county hamlet. Bioom
lngton' history, the minister said, was
like the etory of a life- and he drew from
It a strong moral lesson. The largest crowd
that ever assembled on a similar occasion
near Bloomington attended the dual cere
mony, after which the body of the pioneer
woman- was placed beside thar of her hus
band, who had gone so", long before.

The blaze originated in the fourth floor
of the building, which Is occupied as a lab
oratory and storeroom by the Mayfleld Med

though the flames gained speedy headway
on account of the combustible quality of
the stuff they were checked after an hour's
hard fight by the fireman and prevented

and within a few minutes after the alarm
was sounded the neighborhood of Walnut
street from Main to Broadway was filled
with spectators. The reflection of the flames
against the sky waa visible for manv
blocks, and hundreds of excited persons
rushed to the scene, expecting to find the

Fourth District, with a dozen patrolmen
and detectives, had alt they could do to keep
the crowds bftk of the danger line. The
presence of so many persons in addition to
the clanging of the fire engine bells as the
heavy vehicles thundered down the grade
leading toward the river and the shouts of
the firemen presented a strange contrast to

Five streams of water were turned on
the burning building, and when the fire

Some little damage was caused by the

and the Thomas McCauley Liquor Com

A. J. Walter Candy Company, which Is Just
across the alley to the west of the Cotton
Exchange building; also suffered slight
damage from water.
