" A wave of sorrow -and sympathy swept over Alliance Tuesday afternoon when the sad tidings of the death of Johu P Reardon, late master mechanic of the Wyoming division of the B. & M. railroad was noised abroad among the citizens. Not since Al liance was located was there such an uni versal expression of heartfelt regret from every class of society. An acute sense of loss seemed to pervade every heart. A good man, citizen, neighbor and friend, a natural-born gentleman, God's noblest handiwork was taken away in the person ality of John Reardon. All who knew him mourn for him. A year ago the first indications of the malady that afterward caused his death made themselves manifest. Still every hope was entertained that he would over come the inroads of the infirmity. But slowly his strength ebbed away and at length when it became apparent that death was inevitable he prepared to meet his last end with heroic Christian fortitude. He received the last sacraments of the Catholic church, of which he was always a devoted member, with every mark of faith and humble piety. And after bearing with edifying patience and profound resignation to God's holy will, a long, tedious wast ing sickness, he breathed his last breath peacefully surrounded by his sorrowing family. At his deathbed were gathered his wife and five children, his aged father, Michael Reardon, and his two brothers, Michael Reardon, Jr., of Creston, , Iowa, and Edward Reardon, Sr. Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock a requiem high mass was celebrated at the church of the Holy 'Rosary in this city for the repose of the soul of Mr. Reardon. The body, encased in a neat casket, reposed for the last time at the altar where in life he had often knelt. The pall bearers on the occasion were Messrs. C. A. Newberry, M. F. Nolan, Wm. Haley, L. B. Johnson, F. W. Irish and Ed. O'Donnell. A large congregation of mourners representing every creed and class overflowed the church. Many who could not get in were compelled to stand all through the services in the vestibule and even outside the church. The altars were appropriately draped in black. The Gregorian plain chant requiem mass was impressively rendered by the choir under the direction of Mrs. Raymond. The scene was indeed impressive and the spirit of peace and con solation that prevailed was heavenly. After the mass, and the blessing of the remains, Father Galvin spoke at length of the deceased. He reviewed John Reardon's character as a faithful, devoted Catholic, as an affectionate husband and father and as an honest, conscientious citizen. Father Galven extended to the bereaved family the sympathy and consolation which St. Paul gave the Thessolonians, when he tells them not to grieve like the others who have no hope. That those who fall asloep in the Lord await the resurrection, just as the Lord himself has risen. And that we who are left shall meet again in the world to come those who have gone before us to be happy for eternity. The death of this good man did not carry with it that awful loss that comes to those who see no hope beyond the grave, but his soul was soothed and sustained by that unfaltering faith, like one going home, confident of the peace and happiness that abide forever. John Reardon was born in Quincy, 111 , July 18, 1855, thus making him a little over 48 years of age. He was educated in the schools of Quincy and at the Francis can college there. He commenced work as apprentice in the mechanical depart ment of the Burlington shops at Quincy at the early age of fifteen. He went to Cres ton, Iowa, in 1873, and worked there as a machinist fifteen years. He was mar ried on May i, 1879, to Miss Rose Sweeney, a lady whose estimable qualities of heart and head have endeared her to all who know her. Of the marriage five children remain, Edward, Jr., Joseph, R. Emmet, Henry and Marie. John Reardon went to Pacific Junction in 1888 as fore man and remained three years, being pro moted to master mechanic of the Wyom ing division at Alliance in April, 1891, which position lie ably filled till his resig nation in the early part of their present year. In all he worked 32 years in the employ of the C, B. & Q. and B.& M. roads. , His ability as an expert mechanic Two COLLISIONS CAUSE DEATH. Almost Instant Arrived nt Their New Home. The following letter from Rev. Dr. Horn, dated Dillon. Mont., Sept. 28, will be of Interest to The Herald readers and friends of the Horn family: "After seeing Denver, we crossed the pilcd-up Rockies; visited the 'City of the Saints' where we were shown the Mormon edifices by a lady who seemed glad to act as guide, and, nt the same time, glad to show evidences of being proud of the fact that she was a Mormon and the wife, along with many others, of some man who had a corner on wives. We arrived in Dillon Thursday, at midnight, and found a splendid people eager to give us n warm, royal welcome. Delicacies of the season were spread upon the dining-room table and a cordial invitation to partake was ex tended as soon as we arrived at the parson age. Wo partook and arc still partaking of the fragments which comprise less than twelve baskets full. In Dillon every street has its splendid shade trees and stream of water flowing by, reminding mo somewhat of Damascus. The residences are worthy a place in a large city, some of them, I am told, cost from $40,000 to $50,000. The 'state normal has a most beautiful location, and its three large buildings would do credit to any city on the map. A three-story hotel offers travel ing men first-class accommodations. As an evidence of Dillon's wealth and surplus cash, it may be well to note that one of its banks, the First National, has nearly a million dollars of deposits.
