Men's heavy mittens
One of the saddest, most tragic
deaths that has ever occurred in our
midst was that of Robert Grandstaff
which occurred suddenly on Satur
day afternoon about four o'clock at
home in the east part of town.
Mr. Grandstaff was taken ill during
the night Friday yet he kept up Sat
urday forenoon and tried to go to
fiis shop but could only go a little
Way. He returned home and laid
down and in the afternoon, feeling
much worse medical aid was sum
moned. Despite the best of care and
skill and tender nursing the end
came suddenly and the young wife,
who was herself very ill, was bereft
of affectionate,, indulgent hus

him, of a kind, considerate son. Be
sides these two there are four sisters
and a brother who survive. Mes
dames Graham and Hill, of near
Davis City, Mrs. Lutz of Leon and a
sister residing in Wisconsin and one
brother Fred Grandstaff.
Robert Grandstaff was just in the
prime of young manhood, being but
twenty-seven years old the 1 "th of
last January, lie was an energetic
industrious young man, of pleasant
agreeable disposition, well liked by
all who knew him. In the home he

life. He was married last winter
to Miss Carrie Moore of near Udell,
and a short time ago they removed
here. Mr. Grandstaff going into the

He was in apparently good health
before his sudden illness and his
death was due to apoplexy. The
funeral services were held Sunday
morning at 10 o'clock at the home.

pressive service full of comfort to
the sorrowing ones. Several appro

and a number of lovely bouquets
were sent in, tokens of neighborly
kindness, sympathy and respect.
The body was then taken to Davis
City for interment. Monday after
noon the mother and one of, the sis
ters, Mrs. Graham returned from
Davis City to remain with the
stricken wife until she fully recovers
from her illness when she will ac

pecially sad and touching feature in
this young man's death is the fact
that his wife is left absolutely alone,
with no relatives of her own and the
deepest, most heartfelt sympathy of
the whole community goes out to
her in her bereavement and loneii
ness. May the all-wise father grant

A delicate surgical operation was
performed on Charles Arnold, of
Lenox, Iowa, recently at the Epworth
hospital, St. Joseph, by Dr. Geiger,
assisted by Dr. W. J. McGill. While
picking apples the young man fell
from a ladder and his spinal column
was fractured. The operation con
sisted of the removal of nearly two
inches of the spine and the wiring
together of the two ends. It was
necessary to make the backbone
shorter so that when it grows to
gether the back will not be humped.
"When the anaesthetic was given
Arnold for the operation he was
writhing in agony," said Dr. Geiger.
"His nerve center was broken, and he
had totally lost control of himself. I
.regard the fact that the young man
lived until he reached St. Joseph as a
miracle. When the spine was con
nected, we also adjusted the nerves
and back muscles, so that it is pos
sible for him to recover. I consider
his condition as highly satisfactory."
Arnold was conscious the second day
following the operation for the first
time since the accident, and he was
able to lift his head. The injured
man is twenty-eight years old and
conducts a general store at Lenox.

According to the late census re
port Missouri has more farms than
any state in the union. Within its
borders are 284,886 farms which
average 120 acres to the farm. The
improved land to each farm averages
seventy-five acres or sixty-two and
one-half per cent. The yield of the
land is enormous under the ordinary
method of farming, but if the entire
state were farmed in a scientific man
ner, as is done where land is scarce
and more expensive, it would be dif
ficult to estimate what the value of
the crops would be.
