Reaid, son of Mr 1 and Mrs Taylor Heard of Hardinsburg. lKy.,aod who is at present taking a special course in Kye, Bar, Nose ami Throat work in the Chicago Univer sity. Livermore, Ky., June IMS. BdttOT jot Bteckenridge News, Cloverpoit, Ky. j Dear K litor: Thinking that a word concerning Dr. II J. Beard would be of interest to the many readers of your paper and to scores of his friends iu Breckiarldga county. I am acting in behalf of his host of friends in Liver more and McLean county who are unstinted in their praise of him both as a citizen and physiciau in writing this article lor vour paper. Dr. H J. Heard who has been locat ed at Livermore since M0 and who has rec.-iitly left to take a special training in Chicago University preparatory to enter a greater field of service has heen so faithfully described as to his life, character and public service in the re marks of the friends wdio kuow him in lim ltd) and wtll, both as a citizen ard a physician that there seems little left for me to do except reiterate what thev have said; Iu priv.ite Ufa his qualities were sociability, kindness anil a getiei. ousspitit. In prolesional and business life lu- was a broad minded man with IM natural common taBte; a man of positive opinions and hrm convictions ict he was willing, unless some vital principle whs involved, to consider what h-' thought might be the sounder judgement of his frieuds. 1 ne recoroa ot ur. Haard i practice bear ample testimony to his capacity for work aud his dispositiou to discharge his duty. To him, as to every one, came the call to citizenship; and his civic pride and active interest in all movtmeuts that go to the betterment of a town, county and state speak of his conscientious work aud willingness to bear his full share of the burdens of the community. He figured prominent ly in all public welfare programs aud the past five years has been chairman of the Board of Education in which place he showed a deep and unselfish interest iu the Educational welfare of the poor and well-to-do alike and was uever satisfied with anything short ol the very best results ofttimes doing things at a sacrafice on hi. own part for the beuefit of the public at large. The good people of Livermore and neighboiing community speak on one accord in recogo'zing the great loss to our town, school aud community in giving up Dr. Beard. He was a much loved physician, a maulv man und a live progressive spirit. We sustain the loss of a great citizen and our best wishes go with him in his future work. (Signed) W. L. Matthews.
