Mr. C. E. Lundy, who had been ill
for the past three months at his home
in the Baptist parsonage, this city,
died Saturday, Feb. 8, 1913, at about
3 o’clock in the afternoon. The re
ports for the past two weeks or more
had been very encouraging, he having
been able to sit up more or less each
day, and it was thought he would
mend rapidly and be up and around
in a short time. On Friday he had
been able to sit up for nearly two
hours and was feeling tine. However,
later he seemed to grow worse and on
Saturday his physician had been
called frequently. After dinner, his
condition seemed for the worse, but
nothing to cause belief of his sudden
demise, till near the hour of three,
when the nurse noticed a sudden
change, phoned for the doctor, and
before she could return to the bedside
he had breathed his last. The funeral
occurred from the First Presbyterian
church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock,
the business houses being closed dur
ing the hours thereof in memory of
departed and a large concourse of peo
ple attending to pay their last respects
to departed, interment being made in
Mr. Lundy was born in Ontario
county, Ontario. Canada, in 1849, and
passed away at Loup City, Nebraska,
February 8th, 1913, after a protrated
illness of several months. While he
was still a child his parents moved to
Cedar county, Iowa, where he grew
to manhood. His marriage to Miss
Catherine Moore occurred in October,
1873. For some years he made his
home near West Liberty, Iowa, and
nen movea to rioiaen, Missouri,
which was ills home for fourteen
years. Mr. Lundy and family have
been in Nebraska since 1905, making
tl eir home first at Friend, in Saline
county, and after a year and a half in
that community, they took up their
residence here in Loup City, where
for a number of years Mr. Lundy was
the wellkown and successful proprietor
of the St. Elmo hotel. Since last
November he has been in ill health,
and has been closely confined to his
home. His departure from our midst
leaves many sad hearts to mourn his
loss, chief of wliorp are those nearest
him. the bereaved wife and the two
daughters, Mrs. J. C. Vaughn and
Mrs. H. A. Hinman, of this city. Mr.
Lundy lias five brothers and three
sisters who survive him: Mrs. Martha
Holloway and Mrs. Potter, Elk City,
Okla.; Mrs. Grice, Vancouver, Wash

in Missouri; Edward Lundy, living in
We publish below the following elo
quent tribute to decease^ from the
pen of an intimate friend:
Sleep on. thou whose life hath been
! as an open book, known and read of
all men: whose example of uprightness
has been worth emulating.
Sleep on. thou who hath been a lov
ing, faithful companion, a fond and
tender parent, a loyal friend and good
Sleep on, thou whose promise hath
been a record of fulfillment, and whose
word was an unbroken bond, from
whose heart emanated charity, and
whose hands did deeds of kindness.
Sleep on, thou who hath caused the
widows’ heart to leap for joy, and the
orphans’ tears to cease, and who hath
ever been the friend and champion of
honor, virtue and truth.
Sleep on, thou to whom the even
ing of life hath come, and whose sun
lias set on a day well spent and deeds
Sleep on, thou to whom the night
of death hatli come; death which is
but the triumphal arch, the eternal
gateway into the fair tields of im
mortality and endless life.
And standing at the portals of the tomb,
Hope almost bears the rustle of a wing;
Faith thinks she sees the flowers immortal
ahu near* me angles oi glory Sing.
Shine on, thou bright star of hope,
until the dawn of the perfect day,
when the s.n of perfect peace, joy
and happiness shall arise upon the
verdant fields of the eternal world,
when will be exemplified the Omnip
otence of an All-wise Creator and the
inimitable justice of a Loving Fat her,
as foretold by one of old, whose mind,
touched by the Infinite Intelligence,
in prophetic vision “Saw the dead,
booh small and great, stand before
God: and the books were opened; and
another book was opened, which is
the book of life: and the dead were
judged out of those things which were
written in the books, according to
Sleep on, thou beloved one, rest ic
peace, safe in the precious hope,
secure in the beautiful promise of the
dawn of a resurrection morn, when we
shall meet thee again around the
Great White Throne, and receive oui

Killed at Miller
Kearney, Feb., 6_George H. Hood,
Union Pacific station agent at Miller,
Neb., twenty-six miles northeast of
here, on the Callaway branch, was
shot and killed. His lifeless body
was found in the street close to the
depot. It seems that Hood was busy
in the office at the depot when some
one attempted to rob the place, for
when the body was found he was in
his shirt-sleeves and bareheaded.
Nothing in the office was molested, it
being thought that after the shoot
ing the murderer ran away.
A bullet was shot through a win
dow of the office and one was fired in
to Hood’s head, lodging at the base
of the brain. Blood was found in
the chair that the agent had occu
pied, as well as upon the floor leading
out of the office.
It seems certain that Hood was
killed before midnight, as the ground
under the body was bare of snow.
Snow commenced to fall shortly after
midnight and continued until morn
There is little or no clue as to the
identity of the murderer or mur
Hood was a single man of good hab.
its and so far as known had no en
emies. He had been in the employ
of the Union Pacific ten years.
At It Again
We have received a letter from
Loup City's old favorite, Boyd Bur
rowes, that he has again started out
in the show business, and is getting
readv, with headquarters at Fremont,
to put a big tent show on the road
the coming season. He says he will
be on the road this season with an
entirely new show and the finest can
vas theatre ever constructed. He
evidently will not start Out before
May 1st, as he orders his mail all ad
dressed to Fremont till that date.

and ever popular footlight artist.

o'clock, when Miss Hazel DeCamp

saying the words that joined those
two young lives together.
After the ceremony was over, the
wedding party sat down to a ’ bounti
