Rov. Thomas M. Aikman was born In

Died at hid home In Rule , Nobr. , May
10th , 1008. Mr. Aikman had a hard
siege of Lugrippe In the early part of

town on Thursday before ho died , and
his death came as a great shock to the
whole community. The funeral was
preached on Friday afternoon , at two-
thirty , at the Holiness church , by Rev.
Ben net Maze of Dawsoa. A good man
has gone from our midst , wherever
there was sorrow or suffering , his kind

has douo what he could. " Yes , what
ho could to encourage good , what he
could to suppress evil , what ho could to
lift up the discouraged one , what he
could to cheer the sorrowing one.
About n year ago the writer heard him
say "when 1 tun laid In the silent city ,
I do not want my friends to come there
and weep , but I want them to sing by
my resting place. But the many tears
that were shed by friends on the day
when he was laid away from our sight ,
was only for the broken association ,
and sympathy for the lonely wife and
children left fatherless The casket
was literally covered with beautiful
and fragrant flowers , silent tributes of
loving friends , oven the school children
adding their beuutlf-'l offering to the
children's friend. Words of sympathy
to the bereaved ones sound weak , but
they arc sincere and come from the
whole community , only hoping that in
some way they might a lltttlo lessen
the ache to the sorrowing hearts of rel
atives , who grieve for the departed
one. but trust In the Ono whom he
trusted to the end. and sometime will
