Into the Shadows
It is very seldom that such a sad and
exceedingly pathetic event dunes to a
community as came to this e ty ihe
present week, a sou and mother passing
oni ol the mortal dream ot life within a
few hours of each ether to continue t.ie
lies of love in that realm of life where
all tears are wiped away.
Sunday moruing, after an Hi ness of a
few hours, Harold, son of Alderman ami
Mrs. Garrett J. Russell, fell into that
sleep which mortals call death, but
which is really a transition to a fu 1
realization (f the spiritual conscious
ness, ut the family home, 217 W ashing
ton street. The departure of Harold
was a great shock to the members of the
family, to his classmates in the High
school and the public generally. He was
a good boy, of a kind and sunny disposi
tion and beloved by all because of his
high ideals and Christian character, al
ways exerting an influence for the best
in life and experience with those with
whom he associated. He was but seven
teen years old and had before him a
bright future to mortal sense, but a hap
py future has been realized and he en
tered upon the work of Jove which will
be reflected to those who remain, to meet
him in the future. It can truthfully be
said relative to Harold, “Blessed are
those who die in the Lord.”
Thirty-five hours after the departure
of Harold, his mother, Mrs. Garret J.
Russell, with his name upon her lips
followed him, passing away Monday
evening, October 9, 1911, joining the
loved one who had preceded, her to wel
come her into life eternal. Mrs. Russell
was a true, devoted wife; fond, self-sac
rificing mother and a kind friend and
neighbor whose good works will follow
Mother and son are survived by the
husband and father, Garret J. Russell
one sister. Miss Katherine Russell of
Milwaukee; and three brothers, Leonard
and Irving of Milwaukee, and Ray of
Waukegon, 111., who have the sympathy
of all in their double bereavement.
The double funeral was held Wednes
day morning at 7:T5 o’clock from the
home to St. Bernard’s catholic church,
the pastor, Rev. Thomas Henuessy cele
brating the mass for the dead and
preaching a very affecting sermon in
which ho spoke feelingly of the departed
mother and son. The church was crowded
to its utmost capacity, the members of
the High school being present in a body
and were much affected by the services.
After the benediction was pronounced,
the re gains were .taken to the Milwau
kee depot preceded by the high school
pupils in procession and followed by a
large cortege of sorrowing relatives and
friends in carriages, and taken to Mil
waukee and interred in the beautiful
Calvary cemetery in that city.
Mrs. Wilhelmina Bernhard, widow of
the late Theodore Bernhard, died at the
family residence, 315 North Eighth St.
Wednesday morning, after several weeks
illness, dropsy of the heart being the
cause of death. The deceased was born
in Germany Nov. 4, 1834, coming to this
country with her parents when a child,
coming direct to Watertown, where she
has resided for nearly sixty years. Three
children survive: Misses Emma and
Mathilda Bernhard of this city, and Mrs.
Henrietta Bernhard of Milwaukee. Two
grandchildren also survive. The funeral
will take place this afternoon at 2 p. m.
from the home, the burial to be in Oak
Hill cemetery.
Tuesday morning, Mrs. Wilhelmina
FJath passed away suddenly at the home
of her son, John Flath, route 5, aged 83
years The departed was loved by all
Who had the privilege of an acquaint
ance with her, a devoted mother who
will be greatly missed by the five chil
dren who survive her, who have the
sympathy of all of their friends in their
bereavement. The funeral will be held
this afternoon from the home to the
Moravian church at Ebenezer. A good
woman has passed to her reward.

Christian Science Lecture.
Monday evening, Clarance C. Eaton, a
member of the Board of Lectureship of
the First Church of Christ, Scientist,
Boston, Mass., lectured in the assembly
hall in the Masonic Temple to a fair
sized and appreciative audience, his
subject being Christian Science. Mr.
Eaton, who was a resident of this city
during his childhood and boyhood days,
is a son of Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Eaton. He
is certainly a very interesting and logi
cal speaker and held his audience spell
boan 1 by his eloquence and his argu
ment, which svas entirely different from
that, heretofore presented in this city
by lecturers on that subject.
Sixty Years the Standard
A Cream of Tartar Powder
Made from Grapes
That 1 1 O’clock Ordinance.
To the Editor of the Leader:
Alderman Humphrey’s ordinance, as
was expected, runs great risk of being
amended so as to render it of little value.
That powerful influence is brought t<>
bear on the city fathers by brewery and
some of the saloons, was painfully evi
dent at the qnasi-pnbiic committee
meeting held last Friday evening. 1 sa\
quasi-public, because very few, outside
the saloonkeepers (who, of course, had
ample notice and consequently were
there in force), had heard of the meeting.
Even the Times did not know of it, or
refrained-under orders—from “wiseing*
the public to this tut of news. W ell, any
way, the 11 o’clock ordinance was talked
about pro and con; his Honor the Mayor,
to the disgust even of his friends, acted
like a spoiled kid; and then the com
mittees put their heads together. After
mature (?) deliberation they said—all
but one —“we’ll close ’em at midnight.”
And there you are! Now I venture to
assert without much fear of contradic
tion that even before the meeting was
called; a f2 o’clock ordinance was agreed
upon, Hence the committee meeting
was a mere formality. And no matter
what evidence might be adduced show
ing the crying necessity of regulation,
word was passed along the line to make
it 12 o’clock regardless of the wishes of
the people.
Much good would result to the city b\
the passage of Alderman Humphrey’s
| ordinance. Midnight closing will do
but little to belter existing conditions.
It might be pertinent to inquire if the
aldermen have made any effort to And
out the wishes of their constituents in
this matter. The voters of the Third
ward, for instance, can hardly be in fa
vor of the all-night saloon. And yet one
of the city fathers from that ward is in
favor of it. Is he the representative ol
the people who elected him, or is lie the
representative of the saloons? There
will be an election next spring. Citizens
should note carefully how every alder
man votes at the next meeting of the
council. Bear in mind that every al
derman who votes against Mr. Humph
rey’s ordinance, is opposed to decent
regulation and is in favor of allowing
a certain saloon element to “run,” in ils
own lawless way, our city.
