Again the shadows of death have fallen dark aud heavy athwart the threshold oi a happy home and it is with feeliugs of sincere regret that we make the announcement that James |. Caward is no more. His death oc curred at his home at Hampton, Iowa, Friday, December 20, at 11:30 p, m. The immediate causa of his death was blood poisoning, resulting from a sur gical operation some weeks previous. The body was brought to Cresco for burial in beautiful Oaklawn. Funeral services were held Sunday at 2 p. m., at the resideuce of his brother, J. B. Caward, conducted by Rev. Taylor of the M. E. church, assisted by mem bers of the Congregational church choir. How true it is that sorrow is the domiuant chord of nature, and yet how equally true is it that the sorrows that visit mankind are often the meaus of ltading the sorrowing to a closer conception of their duty to others and their God, was the theme Rev. Tay lor impressed upon Ins hearers. The heart broken wife and the sor rowing daughters, his brother George of Owatonna, Minn., and son-in-law, E. F. Thorpe, of St. Paul, besides the Cresco relatives were present at the funeral. His brother William of Milwaukee, started, but got only as far as Prairie du Cliien, .there being no train up Sunday morning. The large number present at the funeral and the profuse floral offerings of friends attested the high esteem fu which Mr. Caward was held by his old neighbors and associates. Memorial Post, G. A. Ii., attended the funeral in a body and conducted the services at the cemetery. Mr. Caward was a man of strong convictions, but generous to a fault. He was universally admired and re spected by all who knew jiim. I11 the mellow Minset of an houoved life he passed into the valley of tile shadow aud fell asleep at the souud of the taps of Death. Deceased was born at Hall's Corners, New York, March, 1817, and rt,oved with his parents to Whitewater, V.'is., when a mere boy. He came to Crtoco in 18:8. Was united in marriage At the breaking out of the War of the Rebellion, in 1S61, Mr. Caward at the tender age of fourteen years, went into cair.p with the 4th Wisconsin, hut wlieu the regiment was ordered to the front he was sent home on account of his extreme youth. Again, he at tempted to eulist in the 13th and 16th regiments, and spent a few weeks in camp will each regiment. But, as in tho first instance, he was sent home when the .regiments started south. When the 28th Wisconsin regiment was being organized he joined Capt. Grey's company, but the officers would not enlist him and he served in the capacity of "marker" for the regiment aud orderly to the Colonel until he was nearly sixteen years of age, when he enlisted. At the end of a little over three year's enlisted service he was honorably discharged at the close of the war. Resolutions of Respect,. Adopted by Memorial Post, No. 216. G. A.

A Claver Schame by Which Chicago Fak Irs Are Making Money. if 3.,V EXCITEMENT IN OIL. An Old Well Start* Flowlne, and Sets Everybody Drilling. There is great excitement in Parkers burg, W. Va., and vicinity over the pros pect of finding oil in paying quantities. The test well at Dam No. 1, 2/2 miles from that place, which was abandoned a few days ago after the Cow Run sand had been struck, astonished everybody by blowing out the plug and flowing, although it has been incased and partly 1 filled up. The bit was barely in the sand when the drillers pulled the cas ing and left. As the sand was 105 feet-. thick and the well had not been shot, oil men became satisfied that there is' a big deposit of oil in the immediate locality, and they began scouring the: country and leasing every foot of land they could get. -fa- There is a peculiar industry which is developing in Chicago. It is the paint ing or dyeing of the plumage of that lit tle pest known as the English sparrow in colors like the canary. The painted^ sparrows are readily disposed of to their--' innocent housewife who believed thatfi the chirp of a song-bird will make the home more cheerful, and who readily1 parts with the last of her pin money to purchase one of these little impos tors. This industry has long been es_ in aim's peei few peopi these artisthl England. The business Jg£? r? be takeS*jirby Tfor the sparrow is not unlike the canary in size or frame, and then the material is always at hand for the catching. Of course, there is an outlay for paints and dyes,, but even considering this the birds can be sold for less money than the imported Hartz mountain or St. Andresburg canary. If, however, the purchaser has decided that he or she must have a German goldfinch one can be furnished for even a less price than a canary, for it is lessi difficult to color the sparrow to resem ble the latter. If a bird that will sing on demand is wanted, the vender ex plains that at the present time he has nothing but young ones. But he does not fail to explain that even the mother bird was a wonderful singer and that the male could not be purchased for any price. AMERICAN ARMOR-PLATE BEST. Test in Russia Proves That It Has No Su perior In the World. Robert P. Linderman, president of tha Bethlehem Iron company at Bethlehem, Pa., the other day received from Lieut. Meigs, engineer of ordnance for the company, a cablegram stating that a very successful test of armor plate had been made at the czar's proving grounds at Ochta, Polyglon, near St.' Petersburg. The plate was selected from a group of side armor for the bat tle ship Sevastopol, and subjected to the, most severe test possible. The proj ectile penetrations were very slight and there were no cracks. The test result ed in the Russian government accept ing 550 tons of Harveyized armor plate. The test proved that American armor plate is the best made in the world. TEST THE GUNS. Thousands of fish were slaughtered in cold blood, Devil's Slide hod a huge hole torn In its hide,-and the Pacific ocean was rendered less pacific by the concussion caused by the dynamite guns at Golden Gate entrance the other, day. The three war monsters received' their first practical test and the result may be briefly told in two words—"en tirely successful." No targets were placed, the shots be ing hurled into space to the westward and creating great commotion in th"e water. Each time a projectile was thrown into the water it stunned tho life out of large numbers of fish and cre ated consternation in the ranks of the local fishermen, who loaded their crait at the expense oi Uncle Sam.
