From the Rooky Mountain Bap
tist , published at Boulder , Colorado ,
wo learn that ttov. J. W. Crooks
died at Monte Visla on Monday ,
January 7 , 1001 , of pneumonia.
He was sick only a short time. He
reached Monte Vista on the Ibt , and
preached there every night. At the
close of his serviooa Friday evening
ho complained of being sick , and

Park. Since then he has boon dis
trict missionary in Minnesota two
years , pastor at St. Paul , Minnesota ,
one your , at St. Cloud two years , at
Jowa Falls three years , : it.d the
remainder of the titno hu haa been
general missionary in Colorado.
Ho was born in England Jan. 9th ,
1863. Ho leaves n wife and seven
children. It ia said of him ; "Ho
was a most efficient superintendent
of misdions. lie worked too hard ;
ho never spared himself. During
the last year ho traveled 35,000
miles. Ho was wide awake and
aggressive. Ho was alwajH aotu-
alod by the loftiest motives. His
heart was set on doing the will of
God. Ho looked for the good that
wus in men , and found it. For him
the spots on the sun had no charm.
Hu was kindly , genial , gentlemanly ,
loving. He possosHod the instincts
and had cultivated the gracou of a
true gentleman. His kindness of
heart was unfailing. It was his
delight to bloHri , but never to smite ;
to heal , but never hurt. His wat
the foot lo turn amdo to spare tha
worm , that it might move on , " Hia
last visit here was during the state
convention iu October. Hia hair
had greyed in his absence of ten
years , but his face was young , and
he manifoHted tlo ; same life and
energy characteristic of him in his
younger days , and his visit waa
greatly enjoyed , especially by his
old acquaintances. It is sad to
learn that ho has been cut off in the
prime of his usefulness. His re-
mainu were laid to rest last Friday ,
in Denver , the funural being con
ducted by Rev. Dr , Vosbaugh ,
pastor of the First Baptist churoh.
