Eddie FitzSimons Die's on Man
hood's Threshold.
Death Causes Wide Spread
Among' Friends all Cver
On Saturday, at the home of his
grand-parents at Vail occurred the
death of Edward William Fitz
simons of Schleswig. Death was
caused by goitre of the heart, which
caused weeks of suffering before death
came £t3"-a fele^se. Deceased was in
his tweml-first year. He was the
pride of his father's heart and well
beloved friend ot all who knew him.
The funeral services were held at St.
Ann's church on Monday forenoon and
were largely attended by friends and
father he leaves a dearly loved step
mother, two little half-sisters and
numerous other relatives. Eddie was
one of the few boys who grew to
man-hood without growing away from
his home, or from the teachings of
his youth\ It was the v. rdict of all
that never had Vail or Crawford
county produced a better, more high
minded or more faithful youth. In
purity of thought and action he was
still a child, he was devout and con
scientious in his religion, loving and
tender in every day life and true to
every task imposed. It is upon the
father the blow falls heaviest. The
relationship was more even than that
of father and son, it was that of
friends and chums and brothers. It
was such a relationship as can only
grow up between a loving, under
standing father and a loving, trusting
For several years Eddie Fitzsim
mons was the correspondent for the
Review, first at Boyer and later at
Schleswig. His letters were always
well written and showed evidence of
relatives from all parts of the couaty.
Edward William Fitzsimons was
born in Kansas City. Mo., on July
24th, 1886. In September his father
and family returned to Crawford
county and this has been his home
eince infancy. For many years the
family resided at Vail and it was at
that place that he attended school, be
ing one of the graduates of their
public schools in June, 1902. The
Review presents herewith his por
trait as he appeared at the time of
his graduation. Later the family re
moved to Boyer. and it was here that
by his faithful helpfulness he re-paid
hiB father many times for all the love
and kindness he had lavished upon
him. During the fall of 1904 he had
the management of the Trans-Missis
sippi elevator at Kiron. Later he as
sisted in the store of E. Chamberlain
& Son at Vail. He also assisted his
father at Boyer and later at Schles
wig where the family home is at pres
ent. His mother died in Januaary
1895 and his only ^sister died Feb.
19th, 1894. Both were buried at the
Vail cemetery and it was Edward's
last wish that he might be placed be
side them. A wish which was re

his last illness began he waB faithful

this source that we came to know him
well and to value him highly as a
friend and as one who had high ideals
in life and who lived up to them.
Shortly before his death he went to
the home of his grand-parents at
Vail. Gradually he grew weaker and
weaker but his last moments were
blessed with consciousness and he was
able to bid all, of his loved ones an
affectionate good-bye as he left for

For our child is happy now:
It has knelt in heartfelt gladness,
Where the blessed angles bow.
It has gone to heaven before us.
And it turns and waves its hands

In that blessed Holy Land.

t-The cattltf' market closed up last
week strong and active and in little
better shape than the opening. The
trade has started out this week on
lower trend, more especially for the
common to medium kinds of both
steers and cows and heifers. Chicago
had a heavy run Monday, 41.000 head,
which had a very weakening effect on
our trade. Best classes, however,
have held very nearly steady, the best

Digests what you eat*
There are some very funny stories
told about the derivations of -\Vords
since people are likely to twist their
language into strange forms. Thus,
the pope is even today called by the
name, "pontifex," -which boys in the
Latin class all know is taken ljy liirn
from the title of the old Koman priests.
Now "pontifex" means bridge builder,
and it is true that the Roman priests
In the early days of the republic were
in charge of bridges, but probably it
should be "poniptifex." meaning "mak
er of ceremonies." Many of you have
wondered what the priest had to do
with bridge building, and this little
change of "nt" to "mp" makes the
whole matter clear.
An astonishing derivation is that of
the word "stranger," which we are told
comes from the Greek word ex, or out
of. Absurd as this seems, it is easy to
understand. Ex means out, from or
away, the same word as the, Latin ex
hence comes extra. Then comes the
Latin extraneus, which means outside.
The old French word, from this,
estrange, means an outsider, but
estrange gave us the word etranger
by dropping the and stranger by
dropping the e.
After this serious example we shall
not be surprised nt the old Joke that
derived the town name '"Middletown,"
from "Moses,", by dropping the "Iddle
town" and adding "oses."—St. Nich
The Green of Engllah Lnwm.
The human jSoui is so made that
green is one of its most delectable
aesthetic experiences. The color is not
exciting, like red, nor stimulating, like
yellow, nor exalting and inspiring, like
1 blue it Is simply soothing, satisfying,
reviving,1 delicious. It is the bufaan
color. If there be planets on whose
surface green is a color as rafe as is
blue on ours, our race would speedily
languish and die out there. But I
speak, of course, of the perfect green,
the green of English lawns. Other
greens there are, cold or trivial or
muddy or crude, which do but irritate
or depress us, and there are blue
greens and gray greens, well enough in
their places, and in the caves of ice
bergs spiritual greens that exercise a
weird enchantment. But for the gar
ment of the mighty, round earth no
other green is more worthy than ,thls
of England none other touches so in
wardly the heart of man. No wonder
that Falstaff' on his deathbed babbled
of green fields. For my dying eyes \l
could desire no happier vision than the
gracious levels of an English lawn
steeped in the gentle sunshine of a
summer afternoon.—Julian Hawthorne

Old Map of Maryland and Virginia.
At the Peabody library is an old map
of Maryland and Virginia which isj be
lieved to date back to the seventeenth
century. The map has a description of
Maryland, on one leaf of the back and
a description of Virginia on the other
leaf. It is? bound with a' few blank
pages to give it stability and was evi
dently part of a larger work describing
the American colonies, as the pages
are numbered. "Baltimore town" is
situated between the "Susquesaban*
ough" and Bush rivers. No especial
mention is made of it in the descrip
tion of the colony, in which "St. Maries"
figures as the chief place. In addition
to the Susquehanna, with Its queer
spelling, the principal rivers are named
as the Patowmec, Patuxent, Ann
Arundel, alias Severn, Choptank, Nan
ticoke and Pocomoke. Tobacco rais
ing is named as the principal source of
revenue in the colony, and It is stated
that trade was carried on chiefly by
barter and exchange. The map was
nublished in London.—Baltimore Sun.
