friends. Miss Marie Berger, the bride's
cousin from Cass county, was the maid

his abundant prosperity and every right
ful joy long life affords. Blair "Pilot.

THE LATE ROY
A Synopsis of the Address
Delivered by Chancellor
Aylsworfh of Cofner
Hoy Oscar Young was born in Cass
county, near Murray, Neb., December
28. 1881. Here he remained until the
fall of 1901 when he went to Bethany,
Neb., to enter Cotner university to
the purpose of gaining a higher educa
tion. He would have completed his
course at that institution next June.
During his college course he was honor
ed at many times by being elected to
the highest places of honor the college
could confer upon him. At one time he
was president of the Y. M. C. A.
He was taken sick September 23,
1907, and grew worse until death came
at 1 o'clock October 23rd at Lincoln,
He was the sixth of a family of eight
children, all living, with the exception
of one, Charles Howard, who died four
teen years ago. He leaves a father,
mother, four sisters and two brothers
to mourn his loss.
He was a consecrated christian. A
member of the Christian church, and
had given his life as a minister of the
same, lo know him was to love him.
The students in a body of Cotner
university were dismissed and were at
the train when the body left Lincoln.
All the members of the senior class, of
which Roy was a member, accompanied
the family to Murray, where the funeral
was conducted Friday at 10 a. m., by
Chancellor Ay si worth, assisted by Rev.
Lucas, of Murray. He was buried at
the cemetery northeast of Murray.
Chancellor Aylesworth delivered a
sermon on the "Elements of Comfort in
the Gospel,,' taking his text from 1
Thess. 15:-18. "Therefore comfort one
another with these words."
The chancellor at the opening of his
sermon commented upon the presence
of trouble in the world look upon the
the bright side as we may, there are
dark shadows across the path of every
life; disappointments, losses and death,
which comes to all. The world has no
adaquate cure for its sorrows. The ele
ments of comfort in the gospel are its
exaulted ideal of friendship. Nowhere
else is this social grace more beautifully
exemplified Christ is the friend that
"sticketh closer than a brother." No
wonder that His followers are bound
together with golden chains of sympathy
and love. The manifestions of friend
ship for our deceased brother, shown
by his classmates, the entire body of
his college associates, as well as by this
community is an indication of exalted
christian friendship. It is a Christian
comfort to remember the noble lives of
departed heroes. The first blinding
grief of lost friends prevents the ap
preciation of the value of such memories.
Alter awnne tne cnambers ot memory
grows beautiful with the radiance of
the faces of departed loved ones. What
holy influence such memories exert
upon the living, beckoning them to
The gospel presents a solution of
Divine Providence, nowhere else found.
The present is but a little section of
ife. Its sorrows endure for a night
but joy cometh in the morning. These
ight afflictions work out a larger good.
The speaker described his ascent of an
Alpine mountain, sometimes a dark
overhanging cliff would shut out the
ight and every beautiful thing; again
magnificent scenes would burst upon
view only to be obscured later, but at
ast the summit reached, the whole
snow capped range stood out to vision
and a world of beauty was revealed. So
of our life Christ said: "What I do
thou canst not know now but thou shall
Finally, the gospel presents surer and
stronger assurances of the future life
than are found anywhere else. Jesus
did not content himself with saying "I
an the reserrection and the life," but
yielded to death and slept in the grave
and rose victoriously, triumphing over
death. About no sacred fact has so
much evidence been accumulated as
about the resurrection. What comfort
rests in the promises of the reunion of
loved ones beyond the grave. It was
the practice of a great agnostic never
to meet a funeral procession if possible
to avoid it. A certain tribe of savages
without hope of a future life, were ac
customed to obliterate all marks of the
graves of their departed, to drive
droves of cattle over their burial places.
If there is no reserrection their acts are
wise. But what comfort glorifies the
christian faith. Death has no sting,
the grave no victory. We mark the
hour of burial with flowers and songs of
hope. The true remedy for sorrow is
found in trusting the promises of the
gospel aud in forgetting our own
troubles in care and labor for others.

IS THE MAN
A Suspicious Looking Indi
vidual Now Languishes
in the County Jail
John C. Aldrege, a man of 44 years
of age, wandering into this town, having
a sack which was tied into three divi
sions was rounded up by the police, and
by the sheriff taken before the county
attorney this morning and questioned as
J o -i
it was feared he was not right.
examination, this man tells the follow
ing story, he says: "I was born in Ver
million county, Indiana, about 44 years
ago, and lived there the most of my
life. About twelve years since, I was
incarcerated in the asylum for the in
sane at Indianapolis, where I was kept
for a short time and discharged, the
keeper of the place saying I was not
crazy. I was placed in the institution
at the behest of my father-in-law be
cause he wished to be rid of me. Dur
ing my life I have been a farm hand,
and have chopped wood during the win
ter "seasons. I came to Omaha and
Council Bluffs last spring, and also
worked in the counties west from there
coming back this fall as I wanted to
husk corn, the crop being very poor in
that portion. This fall I was at A. J.
Riser's and also at Ben Homing's. I
wish to get to Red Oak, where I can
husk corn, and get an opportunity to .
feed cattle during the winter." The
man lacked considerable of being a pre
possessing man in appearance, wearing
a suit of workman's overalls, which, ,
while he was a very large man, was en- '
tirely too large for him, and showed ;
signs of hard usage. He wore a full ;
growth of shaggy beard, and carried a
sack containing his property, the sack
being divided into three portions. The
authorities are keeping him in jail until
an examination can be made of him, j
and a conclusion reached as to what '
disposition will be made of him. j
Out of Sight
"Out of sight, put . of mind," is an
old saying which applies with special
force to a sore, burn or wound that's
been treated with Bucklen's Arnica
Salve. It's out of sight, out of mind
and out of existance. Piles too and
chilblains disappear under its healing in
fluence. Guaranteed by F. G. Fricke
and Co., druggist. 25c.
