LOCATED HERE IN THE YEAR 1872 Funeral to be Held on Friday Morn inf From Home and Burial to be Made at Dow City Cemetery The sad news reached Denison yes terday of the death of Mrs. Jennie Mc Cord, which occurred on Monday af ternoon, August 23d, at the home of her son, Mr. Bert McCord, who lives on the old home place in Paradise township. Mrs. McCord was one of the pioneer residents of Crawford county and her death has caused pro' found sorrow among the early resi dents of this locality who have known her for years. Her death did not come as a surprise to her friends as it was generally known that she was in failing health. Some four years ago she suffered with a severe attack of pneumonia from which she never en tirely recovered. Only a few weeks ago she suffered with a general break down, from which she was unable to rally. A trained nurse was secured to care for her and everything possi ble was done to nurse the frail body Itack into good health. It was of no avail and she passed peacefully away on the date mentioned above. Jessie Schouten, daughter of the late James and Mary Schouten, was born in Saratoga county, New York, June 28, 1841, where she resided un til 1856, when she removed with her parentB -to Moline, III., and later to Douglas county, 111. It was here that she was united in marriage with the late David McCord on the 8th day of April, 1863. They came to Iowa in the year 1872 and located on a farm in Paradise township, \vhere they resid ed until the death of Mr. McCord on Jan. 7, 1892. Since the death of her husband Mrs. McCord has spent most of her time on the old home place, liv ing with her son, Mr. Bert McCord. She leaves to mourn her death six children, two sons and four daugters, namely: Allen McCord, residing at Boise, Idaho Bert McCord, Paradise township Mary Grason, Boynton, Okla. Addie Bixler, of Center.ville, S. iX Mamie Suiter, of Boynton, Okla., and Alma Duncan, of Denison also one sister, Hannah Duncan, of Dehi fcon, and one brother, W. N. Schouten, who lives at Dow City. Mrs. McCVord was well and favorably known in this locality and her friends were numbered by her acquaintances. She professed religion in her youth $nd lived heir life as a. true follower of her Master. In h.er home life she was always kind .and gentle, -never missing an, opportunity to bring hap piness and comfort to'her loved ones. The McCord home was always one of 'the: most Hospitable in the county and every one was made to feel welcome. The funeral will be held at 11 o'clock on Friday miorning of this week at the family home In Paradise township, Rev. E. P. Williams, "pastor of the Baptist church, officiating. Bnrlat will take place at the Dow -City cemetery. •The Review joins with the many friends of the McCord family in ex tending sympathy in their bereave ment.'

The following tribute was paid by Mr. Jacob Sims in his discourse last Sunday at the Presbyterian church to Mrs. Victor Hedman: Only a few weeks ago all that was mortal of one of God's simple, plain folk was laid away in yonder silent city on the hill and the members of this church and congregation in touch ing and feeling tribute to her mem i^ory honored themselves, the church and the Master in that beautiful, simple and solemn service in this room'. "For inasmuch as ye did it un to one of the least of these, ye did it unto me." In her lifetime she enjoyed little of what tliis world calls succless or for tune. Her's were the short and sim ple annals. Oftentimes she was at some home doing the drudgery for the family, while in the hot summer days she might have been seen toiling in her garden or about her little kitchen. In season she sold a few vegetables, carryng and delivering them herself. Whatever her burdens or disappoint ments were during the week, she nev er complained and every Sabbath, when possible, winter or summer, found her in her accustomed place in this church at its regular services with her mites tied in the corner of her handkerchief. For a year she linger ed, helpless in her bed, until at last, worn and wearied, the frail body was no longer equal to the struggle. But when the end came, though long ex pected, a hush fell on this community like a Sabbath evening calm, and hearts were softened a.nd faith quick ened by the memories of that quaint, but quiet, unobtrusive little woman, who, in her lifetime, as she had strength and ability, did what she could. Do you say that fiucli lives are in vain? No, no, there is in such a life that simple heroism of faith and serv ice that touches all lives within its sphere, and exalts the simple virtues that so much adorn life and endure eternally. GOV.

The fact that your female relatives can carry picnic luncheon baskets two or three miles over a rough road does not mean that they could lug one and a half pounds of beefsteak wrapped in a brown paper parcel. Here is another advertisement, printed bere without indicating dis play, of a'certain brand of canned corn and beans, that sounds more like real conversation, and the giving of real reasons: GETS 2300 VOLTS THROUGH BODY Chas. Vitel, Telephone Lineman, Has Close Call From Electrocution on Monday Forenoon. WAS STUNNED BY THE SHOCK Cut Elictric Service Wire Near IVIc Kim Hall With Uliers—Burned on the Hand and Foot. Chas. Vitel, a lineman working "for the Crawford County Telephone com pany, almost met death on Monday morning of this week when he cut an electrical wire carrying a 2300 volt current, but fortunately he was stand ing on dry ground and withstood the terrific shock although it stunned him The telephone workmen were string jng a messenger cable up the alley back of the McKim hall and when pull ing it across one of the electric serv ice wires the insulation was rubbed off and the service wire fell to the ground. The workmen supposed that the electric wire was only a feed wire to some of the buildings nearby and that the current was not so strong Vitel took a pair of pliers and cut the wire to get it out of the way. The 2300 volt current flashed through his body, knocking him down and render ing him unconscious. Fortunately he was standing on some straw on dry ground or it would have certainly re sulted in his death. Had it not been for the fact that he cut the wire in stantly he probably would have been unable to have let go of the pliers. Other workmen came to his assist ance and it was but a few minutes be fore he was able to return to his home, and while it was a severe shock he experienced no ill effects, from it. As soon as the wire was clipped the engineer at the power plant detectet* that something was wrong and turned off the current on that particular line. Vitel is able to be up and around and tell of his experience of having a 2300 volt current shot through his body. He sustained a severe burn on the right hand and also on one of his feet where the current passed thrqugh. Methodict Church Notes.

MISS EMMA RAINE VERY SICK Suffer* With Congestion of the Brain at the Home of Her Sister, Mrs. Jordan, in Dunlap. Miss Emma Raine is seriously ill at the home of her sister, Mrs. A. M. Jordan, in Dunlap. Miss Raine went down to Dunlap early last veek to make her sister a visit and on last Friday was taken very sick. Her con dition was so precarious that a spe cialist was summoned from Omaha to diagnose the case, which he pro nounced to be congestion of the brain. For a few days it was feared that the trouble would be fatal, but since Monday her condition has steadily im proved and unless other complications set in her recovery is assured. It believed that close application to school work for the past few years was responsible for bringing on the trouble at this time. It is believed that siie will be un able to take up her school work for six weeks at least, and in the mean time another teacher will take her place. Her many Denison friends will be glad to know that her condition is not considered serious. Auctioneer E. T. Malone was over from Charter Oak Monday transacting business.
