DEATH OF MISS CAPWELL.
Salem Loses a Prominent Member of
the Educational Profession.
It was known yeslerday that Mis
Olive M. Capwell, asslstaut principal of
trie Lincoln school of tbia city, was to
have a difficult surglclal operation per
formed for removal of a tumor.
Her many friends lived through a
day of greatest anxiety, ending In the
terrlblo shock caused by the news of
her death at half past three. Drs
Cartwright and Jessup, assisted by two
other Balem physicians had placed her
under the influence of anesthetics short
ly before noon and successfully removed
the tumor, which was large and serious
ly attached, and the patient had not
strength enough to recover from the
The news of Miss Capwell's death
soon spread over the city and there
was a constant stream of Inquiring
friends tendering sympathy to her ber
eaved mother who only recently came
out from Iowa to make her home with
her. They bad fitted up a comfortable
cottage and wero enjoying life together
in South Balem near her school work
when the rude messenger came so sud
denly and unexpectedly.
Miss Capwell had conducted her
school Friday last with her usual
bright and cheerful spirits, and it was
only Saturday that she was Informed
that an operation would have to be per
formed. As soon as the surgeons dis
covered the nature of the growth they
realized that it was an unusual one and
could only be removed with the great
est difficulty but that it was their im
perative duty. She had slept very well
the night before, was brave, courageous
and hopeful to the moment of bidding
her mother and friends farewell, and
had made all her requests aud business
arrangements before undergoing the
terrible ordeal. The physicians worked
with her for three hours but no resus-'
citation seemed possible. Breathing
ceased long before the heart ceased to
beat and the patient had evidently
grown very much weaker in the last
few days of the development of tne dis
eaee. The litt'e school children came
by scores and mournfully gathered
around the late home of their favorite
teacher, and It was a sad and most
gloomy day to the entire neighbor
hood. SKETCH OP MISS CAPWELL.
Olive M, Capwell was born in Wyo
ming, Wyoming county, New York, lu
1851, and at the age of 7 years went to
Monroe, Wis., with her parents, where
Hhe received her education and gradu
ated at Milton college ir 1870 and com
menced her career as a teacher in a pub
lic school at Btoughton, Wis. Time
years later sho went to West Union,
Iowa, where she resumed her profession
in a high school. In 1870 she accepii d
the position of principal of the Lwa
soldiers' orphan institute at Divnport,
with six assistant teachers uud 400 pu
pils, which position she held for four
years and was compelled to resign on
account of ill health, In 1881 sue no
copied a position as teacher in the pub
lic scuools or iiol-ve, luano, and re
mained there some time, and then be
came principal at Canyon City. Before
completing her term there she was ap
pointed to the position of superintend
ent of the State Institute for the blind
at Salem, when she removed here aud
has been a resident eyer since.
Later she resigned tho position and
became one of the teachers in the Salem
public schools. Miss Cupwell wus
chosen vice president of the Salem
Teaohers' Association, and from her
many years of experience and her high
standards in her chosen life work as a
teacher, she ranked among tho leaders
of her profession In Oregon.
Ollvo Capwell was a very consclen
tlous teacher. Refined, Intelligent and
kiud hearted; her soul seemed udupted
to tho work of drawing out the chil
dren, bringing them close to ber uud
making them love her. Under all cir
cumstances her spirits were suuny aud
cheerful. While she has undoubtedly
suffered greatly for mouths, not even
her closest friends heard her complain
and her duties wero performed with
unflagging zeal and enthusiasm. Her
inllueuce in the school work of this
city will be long felt aud It will always
operate as au Influence for good.
The fuueral of Miss Capwell will
probably tako place Thursday, await
ing a brother of deceased from Boise
City who la expected to arrive. There

solved and the following will show
