It becomes my painful duty to
ohronical tho death of uiy intimato
and devoted friend Ephraiui Harris
Steed, whioh sad incident ocourred at
7 o'olook on tho 22nd day of February
1S92 at tho house of his parents two
milos north of Waeo. His demise
was as unexpected as it was untimely
ho boing sick hut a short time and
boing onlv nineteen years of ago at
the time of his dosth "Kifas he
was familiarly known, was born in
Wilson county Tennessee, July 520th
1872 and came to Texas with his
parents in 18S5 and sinco that time
has lived in and near Waco In 1891
ho mado a profession of religion and
joined the Eist Waco Biptist chu.oh
and was baptised by h s pastor the
Rov. John Biteman, hiuce wbioh time
ho has lived an otumplory christian
life. His devotion to his dear mother
and his only sister Mrs. Dorah
Hatohdr almost reached idolatry so
much did ho love them, always sub
missive to the will of his paronts be
naturally gained their most devout
Just before his spirit took its flight
to Him who gave it, ho oalled all tho
family around him and such a soeno
as followed woold melt tho heart of a
savago plaoing his arms around his
mother's neck that devoted mother
who stood oer him by day and by
niht during hiH sickness and ex
claimed: "Mother, don't cry aftor me
for I am going where there is no shod
ing of tears," after whiub ho peacefully
closed bis ayes in sleop the sleep
of death to be awakened only by tho
trump on tho rescrrection diy. A
large concourse of people accompanied
his remains to their last resting place,
thoroby testifying to tho lovo and high
esteem in whioh he was held by thoso
who knew him. To his distracted
family and relatives thero is one con
solation and that is the assurance that
they will meet him on that beautiful
Shoro where tho wicked ooase to trou
bio and the woarry are at rest. Lot us
try to imitato his example and when
tho spirit and tho brido say como let
us bo prepared to utter tho words that
Paul did when his mission on earth
was finished and when that house
not mado with hands could bo seen,
"I have made a good fight; I have
kept tho faith."
To the sad and hoartbroken family
wo tonderour siuoero consolation.
