The funeral of the late Allen Beeson
which occurred from the Methodist
church at 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon, was a fitting finale to a life of
usefulness and good citizenship. Af
ter a short service at the Beeson home
on South Ninth street, the casket,
which was covered with rare and fra
grant flowers, was taken to the church
and laid in front of the altar during
the services. The capacity of the
building was soon exhausted, many

ham and J. L. Root.
RevAsa Sleeth, the pastor, con
ducted the services and preiched a
most excellent sermon. The scripture
lessons read were from the 19th Psalm
and from the 41st to the 57th verses of
the loth chapter of Corinthians. The
text for his discourse was as follows:
"When I consider thy heavens, the
work of thy fingers, the moon and the
stars which thou hast ordained: what
ia man that thou art mindful of him,
or the eon of man, that that thou vis-
itest bim? Ps. 8:3-4."
The minister then gave a graphic
word picture of the immensity of the
universe, witn lis myriaus oi stare, us
countless planetary systems, revolving
about central orbs of light and heat
like the solar system, reaching into
space that is so limitless as to pass the
comprehension of the most profound
intellect and it was in contemplation
of this sublime fact which 6tirred the
psalmist into glorifying and praising
his Maker because of his mercy and
rnr,dnega and of consideration lor so
small a creature as man.
At the close of the discourse Miss
Gertrude Fletcher sang "Some Sweet
Day" as a solo, very sweetly.
After the benediction the cas
ket was opened and the whole au
dience in turn filed past, viewing for
the last time, the familiar of the
deceased lawyer, which looked almost
as natural as in life while the choir
sang "Shall We Gather at the River
At the close of the services the fu
neral cortege took up its march for

riages following: the remairs to their
last resting place.
Among those present from abroad
were r ranK JJeeson oi Preston, me

son of Red Oak, a brother and Mrs.
B'ose, a niece, and Judge Jessen of Ne

Sketch of His Life.
Born in u loe cabin on a farm near
Hillsborough, Highland county, Obio,
October 24, 1833. Alien B.eson was es
sentially of a pioneer type. Ilic school
ing was of that essential but unadorned
character attained in a country school.
An ai 111 ction to one of his limbs in boy
hood unfitted him for active work on
the farm, and he pursued his studies
far enough to become a school teacher,
meanwhile studying law with an uncle,
and helping to care for a widowed
mother. Practicing law to some pur
pose, he attended the Cincinnati law
college, from which he graduated in
1854. On June 24. 1855, he was mar
riea to Miss Eliza F. McDonald at
Leesbur. O.. where he resided until
1864, when he removed to Red Oak,Ia.,
nnd entered upon a career as a lawyer,
but still bad predelections toward
school matters, and a few years later
was elected county superintendent
His practice grew with his acquaint
ance, and while not a great money
maker, his advice was frequently
asked is matters of great moment, and
when followed was almost invariably
with success and satisfaction. While
living at Red Oak be was appointed
district attorney to fill a vacancy and
served with distinction. In 1S78 he
concluded to change his residence
First he went to Carthage, Mo., where
he formed a partnership with a promi
nent and successful attorney, and at
once found himself engaged in a great
mass cf business. One of the firm's
cases involved mvny thousands of dol
lars,but when he learned that in order
to win his partner had bought off the
lawyers for the opposing party, he was
so disgusted with that kind of practice
that be concluded be did not want to
practice law in such a place, so the
partnership was dissolved and he came
to Cass county, settling near Green
wood. In 1880 be came to Plattsmouth
and has resided here since, lie at
first formed a partnership with Hon
S. M. Chapman, afterwards with A
N. Sullivan, and still lter with J. L
uoot two years ago that partner
ship was dissolved and he took his son.
A. J. Beeson, the present city attor
ney, in with him, and who succeeds
the firm.
M-. Beeson was a man of sturdy
honesty and good, common sense, and
while be did much business, never had
the faculty cf charging high fees. He
had a fine sense of humor, and was the
possessor of an endless fund of an
ecdotes which he could ri count with
good effect in illustration of his points
of law and evidence. While not a
great or profound lawyer, he was ordi
narily successful, and enjoyed the es
teem of his brothers at the bar, and
the confidence and good will cf the
community at large. To his children
he has left the heritage of a well-spent
life,and to the c immunity i io example
of a quiet, law- .biding citizen, an hon
est man and a faithful friend. Such
men do not live in vain.
