A Sincere Tribute Offered to the
L Memory of an Old Friend
To Ihe 1-Milor of the Journal:
I sometimes think' e as a
I - ( i arc too prone to show
honor fo the good ami great that
come into prominence by the
force of cirrum.sfaiices, and for
get to some extent the great and
beautiful lives that arc lived in
our very midst. Hod, in His all
wise economy, docs not allow one
kind won! lilly spoken, one good
act kindly done, a good, xveli
sncnt life pro for naught; we can
not penetrate with our short
sight t!ic veil of futurity and see
the results, but wc may rest as-sui-jed
that it will all bear fruit,
and richly in the end. A good
life influences those, around them
t better lives; they in turn pass
it on and thus it goes down the
corridors of time and forms a
mountain of beautiful deeds.
Mr. iVrnhard V.'url passed
away a few days since and now
sleeps in the silent city at Oak
Hill. Mr. Wurl, "Uncle Hennie,"
as we loved to call him, was a
most remarkably good man; his
close adherence to duty as a
shopman ami love of home was
almost a mania with him. He
worked here in the railroad shops
for more than a quarter of a
century and I am told by imn
that worked beside him and knew
him well, that they never knew
his equal to try and do his duly
worthily nnd well; his immediate
foreman relied upon him more
than anyone to nnd anything
misplaced or lo.-d. In addition to
his close adherauce to duty lie
had a charitable disposition,
cheerful and almost boyish in its
nature, that made everyone love
him. The other dace of interest
to t'ncel jSemiie was that "ma
lerial domicile." home. . In the
evening when hi la-k was done
al the shops he would take his
bucket ami hasten t the home he
Ioed o well, there to be greeted
by his sweetheart wife, to whom
he plighted his love beyond the
seas in the Fatherland, and
whose married lives had been one
continuous honeymoon, so I air.
told by people that knew them
long: and well.
Uncle, llennie's duties at the
shops brought him one hour
earlier than the other shopmen,
and he was the first to greet me
after my vigil as night watch,
and in all the four years I never
heard him speak the least harm
of anyone, nor a base, impure
word, and who could wish for a
better epitaph than this, "He
spoke evil of no one." There
was a liiige of sunshine about the
funeral of Uncle liennie, .he had
lived a beautiful life and had
reached beyond the years of the
Divine allotment, and so, tike a
well ripened sheaf of grain, ready
to be garnered, and the regard
shown him by his. -comrades; of
the sdtops turning out almost en
masse, besides his many friends,
made it one of the grandest
funerals in the history of Platts
mouth. The shopmen inarched
through the parlors at the home
and viewed the still form of their
old friend, feeling "he lay like
a warrior taking his rest with his
ermine robe of righteousness
.around him." wearing yet on his
mauley lace the beautiful expres
sion born of a well spent life.
Horne by his live stalwart sons
his body was taken to the church
house, where a splendid sermon
was preached by Rev. Sieger.
May we hope that many may
be influenced by the life of this
good man. and that all may "so
live that when our summon:?
comes to join that innumerable
caravan who have taken up their
chambers in the silent halls of
death, we go, nd like the quarry
slave at night, scorged to his
dungeon, but with an unfaltering
faith; go as one who warps the
Jrapery of his couch about him
:ud lies down to pleasant
dreams." John l!radx
THE LAST WILL AND
TESTAMENT OF THE LATE
(IS. JANE A. DOVEY
The county court was occupied
this morning ami also in the aft
ernoon in the hearing of the
matter of the probate of the last
will and testament of the late
Mrs. Jane A. Dovey. The probate
of the will is contested by the
two sons of the deceased, Ceorge
L. and Oliver C. Dovey, on the
ground that the instrument was
secured through undue intluenee
upon the deceased by the family
of her son, Horatio X. Dovey. The
instrument, . which was tiled
shortly after the death , of the
lady, left her property to her
grandsons, K. O. Dovey and O. O.
Dovey, sons of H. N. Dovey. The
document offered for probate
was witnessed by Thomas Wal
ling, Miss Olive Jones and Mrs.
Nettie Ileeson. The amount of
the estate is estimated at differ
ent sums, depending largely on
the question if the state supreme
court holds that the' deceased
lady was in possession in her
own right at the time of her
death of an undivided one-third
interest in the partnership of I'.
a. Dovey & Son. which is in
volved in the case in the supreme
court over the settlement made
with Oliver C Dovey by the two
id her brothers, and which it is
sought to have seta side.
