Born October 3, 1886, and
Died June 3, 1907
Bessie Clara Clevenger was born
October 3, 1886 at Brighton, Col. Her
mother died at the time of her birth.
Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Kirkpatrick took
the child and cared for her from that
time. She was married June 29, 1906,
to Wm. H. Rhoden, then of Elmwood,
but since their marriage they have
lived with Mr. Kirkpatrick. She died
within two weeks of tlje anniversary of
her marriage at 3:45 last Monday after
noon, June 3, after four weeks illness
and suffering. She leaves her husband
and a little baby boy, Charles William,
now four weeks old.
She was converted and united with
the M. E. church at Alvo in 1896, dur
ing the pastorate of Rev. J. W. Em
bree. She was always a good and obe
dient child and grew to be a woman of
most excellent character. Her home
and the world is the poorer for her de
parture; the richer for her life and mem
ory. For although she has gone from
us her influence will continue to bless
the community. We can ill afford to
spare such noble characters, and yet
we must submit to the will and wisdom
of a kind heavenly Father.

The Beautiful Services at Her
Funeral June 13, 1907
Mrs. Jennie E., wife of L. C. Todd,
who died June 11, was buried from the
home about fifteen miles southeast of
this city on last Thursday afternoon.
Dr. Wm, E. Schell, president of York
College, conducting the services, being
assisted by R. F. W. Brink, pastor, of
the home church. W. S. Magney had
charge of the music. A great throng
of people were im attendance, the fu
neral procession being over a mile in
length. The husband of the deceased
is a brother-in-law of Gov. Gco:ge L.
Sheldon, and i3 widely known in this
section of the state.
Mrs. Todd opened her eyes upon the
busy scenes of life in Meggs county,
Ohio, and grew to womanhood in the
community where she was born. She
was educated in the public schools and
became a beautiful, refined and intelli
gent woman.
She became a Christian in early life
and was faithful in her profession even
to the end, her membership being held in
the Otterbein United Brethren church
many years.
She was married to Mr. L. C. Todd
on February 19, 1890, and their home
has been maintained in this region ever
since. A happy home it was, and to it
she gave the devotion of her life and
the sunshine of her bright, happy dis
position. For its advancement she
counted no labor lost no sacrifice too
great, and over it she presided with
charming grace and queenly dignity.
She was the mother of eight chidren,
one dying in infancy, and the remain
ing seven three boys and four girls
now ranging in age from the early teens
down to the tender years of childhood.
She was the second mother of Miss
Florence Todd who is about to gradu
ate from the Academy at Weeping
Water. Four brothers, two sisters and
an aged mother still survive. She
leaves an unusually large circle of
friends, for she was highly esteemed
a'nd loved by all who knew her, the
same being evidenced by the large con
course of people who followed her re
mains to the cemetery and assisted in
laying them so tenderly away for the
last long slumber.
Mrs. Todd had been in poor health for
about a year. Everything was done
that medical skill could suggest, but all
was unavailing. She bore her suffering
patiently and bravely met and conque
ed the last enemy. Her latest anxiety
was for her children and husband who
are now left without her care and cou
sel. Dr. Schnell spoke words of tender
est sympathy to the sorrowing friends,
and uttered helpful truths to all. His
tribute to the noble life of the deceased
wasbeautiful and quite extended, closing
with the following:
"There is a realm where the rainbow
never fades, where the flowers never
wither, and where the beautiful beings,
which here pass before us like shad
ows, will stay in our presence forever.
God has given immortality to man. He
gathers to Himself the noble spirits of
our friends. And to this saintly mat
ron, so recently gone before us, we can
truly say:
Thy day lias co;n-. not jrone:
Thy sun lias ri'ii. not sft:
Tliy life is nowln-yoii"! tlie rfa-'li of tl-at!i or
Not endeiK luit Ix-irun.
O. noMe soul! O. trentle hp a I.'uil aivl
farewell! farewell.'
Card of Thanks
We take this method of returning
our heartfelt thanks to those kinds
neighbors and friends who rendered
such valuable aid during the illness and
death of our wife and mother, and also
to our distant friends who attended the
funeral and attested their esteem for
our dear, departed wife and mother,
with such a profusion of floral tributes.

Resulting in a Free-for-AU
Fight at Weeping Water
Albert Glasgo of Nehawka went to
Nebraska City some time ago and got
too much bad whiskey, and going home
met Robert McClary of Weeping Wa
ter, and as Glasgo had s me beer he
insisted that Mac be social ami take
some of it with him. McClary said 'no;
but if you have some whiskey I will
try that," Glasgo searched himself
and found a bottle which they both
went after, and had almost put it out
of the way of tempting anybody else,
when Glasgo bethought himself it was
for some one else, and thereupon ac
cused McClary of stealing it. This re
sulted in a fight, and in the end Glasgo
looked like well, pretty bad anyway.
For an evening up of affairs, he made
complaint and had McClary arrested.
This morning a compromise was affect
ed, and while the charge was for as
sault with intent to do great bodily in
jury, it was agreed to accept a charge
of assault and battery, and a fine of $.r
and cost were entered, which made $17
in all. McClary telephoned to Weeping
Water to ascertain whether his check
would be good for the amount, and his
will send the money tomorrow.
