He spent his boyhcod days on the old Nor ton farm where he was born. When he was about 13 years of age a protracted meeting was held at old Bethel Church in which Rev. Hurley ana Key, Stephens diet the preaching. In this meeti-g with his father and other members of the family he professed conversion and was baptized and became a member of Bethel Church.

In 1856 he was interested in a union meeting at a school house near where DeMoss Chap el is now located and under the influence of Rev. Christie Gen try he made a new consecration of himself to God.

Ex State Senator John Ken nish "flew the coop" in this city last week, or in other words, he came, he saw, and he went away without delivering his red hot Republican speech. H. went to Haunibal on the first train and in his speech there is quoted as knocking all props from under the Globe-Democrat and his party's claims in this state. At 8:25 p. m. he faced an assembly ol 28 men and among other things told them: "I want to say that I don't charge that the school fund has been looted; I do not believe that the school fund has been looted or that a single cent is missing." Offi cially Senator Kennish has been in a position to know whereof he speaks and in Hannibal, at least, was honest enough to fess up." Col. .1. G. Garber. who was here with him, ad- J dressed the people there on national :ssues. It the Repub licans drop their "school lund" folly there is not a leg left for them to stand on. Obituary. Nearly two years have passed since the sad news spread over our little city that our esteemed fellow citizen and friend, Robert E. Lear, was stricken down with paralysis, ai;d in a critical condition. Anxious inquiries seemed to come from all direc tions from his many friends, only to be answered that it was too tiue But, through the mercy of a Divine Providence and the best of medical skill, together with all tl at could be done with kind and oving hands, he was spared from death at that time and in a lew weeks was sufficiently rt stoied to be seen on our streets again, though left a cripple. A few months later, seeing that he ! could not engage in active bus iness again owing to physical I inability, his ambition and en jergy led him to believe he could and must be doing something, and subsequently formed a co partnership with Mr. D. R Davenport in the real estate and insurance business, in which he successfully continued up to Friday evening Oct. 10, 1902, when he was taken Nov. 2, 1900. He was married May 9, 1881, o Miss Katherine M. Strong of Waterford, Pa., was confirmed in May. 1HK2. by Bishop Robertson of the Epis copal church, to which he lived a consistent, active, and faith ful member up to his death. He was elected vestryman in 186. was elected clerk of the board of vestrymen in 1hh, which office he filled up to April, 1900. He has filled the office of junior warden for several years past, also was appointed superintend ant of the Sunday school under the rectorship of Rev. W. A. Hatch. In this very active and energetic and did great good. He was also on the cemetery committee and everyone knows of the pride he took in keeping it in order and beautiful, Mr. Lear's appointment by Governor Francis to the posi tion of visitor to the State Re form School was a distinguished honor, because it was a position thai could not be sought, but was given oniy to men of high character and unselfish devo tion. How well he acquitted himself in these duties is shotvu by the fact that on the expira tion of his term of service he was immediately appointed one of the trustees of the Girls' In dustrial school at Chillicothe. His associates, as well as the various officers of these import ant institutions, were always ready to testify to his charac teristic laithfulness. his uusel fish devotion to duty, his cor -stant cheerfulness, with which we, his friends and neighbors, were so familiar. But he is gone, a good Cluis lian man. a good husband and father, a good and useful citizen and a gentleman who had a good cheerlul word tor eve'y one. He is gone to receive Ins re ward. Peace to his ashes. ABOUT THE CHURCHS. Interesting News Concerning The Differ ent Denominations. Rev. Wiley J. Patrick filled appointments at Bethlehem Sunday. The papers state: "Rev. Dr. I. W.

He had been fot years a mem ber of the Masonic order, tak ing high rank as a man and christian among them. He was an ardent lover of his profession aud continued up to the last interested in the study of any subject which -might throw light upon the general subject ot medicine.

Wood, which position he held to the time of j'w flfft atrokf of paralyse on Gov. Bob Taylor. There is no man upon the American platform tod.i who in a better entertainer than is Gov. Bob Taylor, of Tenues-ee. He scatters sunshine, creates laughter and as a word-painter is at the top. His ideal i an evening's entertainment is to amuse an audience with song and story and picture, and the portrayal of character to hold up the mirror to human nature, and to light the temples of to his home I thought with windows of luu. His jokes reach the heart of men and women. The Pan- I. I. j .IHil I I . I " ' . ill' 1 i . . 1 lLJ iui for a lecture at the opera house Wednesday evening. Oct. 29. Ticket 50c.
