Death of Mrs. Relyea

Mrs. A. Relyea passed peacefully away at her home, one mile east of New Plymouth, Feb. 21, 1911. She was aged 62 years, 4 months and 23 days.

She leaves to mourn her demise a loving husband, 11 children and friends innumerable.

Mrs. Relyea was a pioneer of the Payette valley and none ever entered her home without a warm welcome, nor left without feeling the warmth of a genuine hospitality. Sickness did not destroy the charm of a kind and indulgent disposition nor old age diminish her unselfish solicitude for her friends and loved ones.

Adhering to the Christian faith, she joined the Baptist church at Jackson, Mich., in 1875, and was a true Christian in every sense of the term.

May time bring its resignation, and may the shores of eternity that receive her soul, surround it with everlasting sunshine and flowers.

Funeral services will be held at the Baptist church on Friday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m. Friends and acquaintances respectfully invited to attend.

Funeral of Mrs. Relyea

The funeral of Mrs. A. Relyea took place from the Baptist church last Friday afternoon, Rev. Blom officiating, and a choir, consisting of Mrs. E. E. Cox, Mrs. Blom, C. S. French and E. W. M. Day, sang sweet, solemn music that touched every heart.

The funeral was pathetic beyond expression, for not one, as the last good-byes were said, but felt that a loss had been sustained for which there is no compensation.

The beautiful life of Mrs. Relyea has passed into the joy of her Lord, and the memory of that noble life will always be a perpetual inspiration.

C. E. Brainard

The death last week in Payette of C. E. Brainard removes a useful citizen from our midst. When he passed away the grief that was felt was widespread and sincere.

C. E. Brainard was a man who united sound sense with honest convictions, of excellent habits and fine moral character. A life that imparts such lessons is well worth living, and his memory will always be cherished by a large circle of acquaintances. (Riverside Cemetery)

Sad Death

Russell B. Waltz, aged 18 years, son of Mrs. and Mrs. E. E. Waltz, recent arrivals from Cleveland, Ohio, met a sad death by drowning in Creasey's pond last Sunday afternoon.

In company with Will Fisher he was bathing in the pond and was seized with cramps, and notwithstanding the heroic efforts of his companion to rescue him, he sank in 15 feet of water.

Dr. Drysdale was summoned and rushed to the scene in his auto, and being a good swimmer and diver, went to the bottom of the lake several times to locate the body, but was unable to do so. The pond was dragged and Russell's body was found after he had been in the water four hours.

The funeral was held from the John B. Fisher home Monday and was largely attended. Rev. R. B. Wright, of Boise, officiating.

To the bereaved parents the heartfelt sympathy of all in this community is extended in their terrible bereavement. (Park View Cemetery)
