At Rest

Last Thursday noon, Richard Southgate, one of our most respected citizens passed tranquilly away at the home of his sister, Mrs. C. S. French, of Valley View.

Deceased had been in failing health for several months, and all that loving hands could do for his recovery proved unavailing, and the earthly end came to one of the noble lives which made this world better and brighter because he lived.

The subject of this sketch way born at Woodstock, Vt., in 1844, and at the age of 20 came to Chicago. From that city he enlisted as a private in the Union cause and was promoted to the rank of sergeant. In the days of early mining in Colorado, he moved to Silver Cliff, where he lived for some time, serving two terms there as clerk of the county court.

About two years ago deceased came to New Plymouth where he resided up to the time of his death.

Appropriate funeral obsequies, conducted by Rev. C. H. Blom,. were held Saturday afternoon at Valley View. Two beautiful hymns sung by a quartet composed of Mesdames Burroughs and Stewart and Messrs. Preston and Stuve, were "Beautiful Gate" and "Go Bury Thy Sorrow." Interment was held at Park View cemetery. The funeral services were largely attended, and the relatives and friends have the sympathy of the entire community in this hour of their bereavement. (Park View Cemetery)

At Rest

After a lingering illness, Arthur Mann, aged six years, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Mann, expired early Monday morning.

All the loving care and the best medical attendance extended the little sufferer were of no avail, and he passed away to God's purest angels. Thus over a happy home the shadows of a little grave has fallen, and it is wonderful how long a shadow a little grave can cast. To the bereaved parents the sympathy of all in this community is extended.

The funeral took place from the Baptist church Tuesday; afternoon and was largely attended. (Park View Cemetery)

A Sad Death

The death of Harry Griep, who expired Monday night at his home two miles east of this city, has cast a glom over this community. The cause of his death was perforation of the bowels, following an attack of typhoid fever, and was ill two weeks, and notwithstanding the best medical attendance passed peacefully away. He was aged 30 years and leaves a wife and four children and many warm friends to mourn his demise. He was a member of the M.W. A. and carried a policy for $2000 in that order.

To the broken-hearted wife and fatherless babies who sit in sorrow where Harry's footsteps shall never again find echo, the Sentinel joins with the many friends of the family in extending deepest sympathy.

Funeral Arrangements will not be made until a brother arrives from Iowa. (Riverside Cemetery)

Last Sad Rites

The funeral of Harry Griep took place from the Pioneer hall last Thursday morning under the auspices of the Modern Woodmen of America. The services were conducted by P. Monroe Smock, who paid a tribute to the deceased. The music was especially fitting for the occasion and was beautifully rendered by a quartet composed of C. S. French, F. P. French, Mrs. E. E. Cox and Edna Stuve. They sand in a sweet and most expressive manner "Sometime We'll Understand," "Nearer My God to Thee" and "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere."

After the services the remains were taken to Payette and tenderly consigned to mother earth by a delegation of Modern Woodmen.

Harry Griep, may your sleep be sweet. (Riverside Cemetery)

Dr. Sumner Davis

Dr. Sumner Davis, a well known and highly respected citizen of New Plymouth, died at his orchard near Fruitland last Thursday morning. He left this city in his usual good health for Payette, and on his way stopped at his orchard to converse with his two sons. He had hardly alighted from the rig when he was seized with an attack of heart failure and expired in a few moments.

The deceased and his family arrived here from Grand Island, Neb., a year ago last April, the doctor investing in orchard land in this vicinity. He was aged 53 years, was a 32d degree Mason, a Woodman and a member of the A.C.U.W. lodge.

The funeral took place Tuesday morning from the family residence, Rev. Blom conducting the funeral services, and a choir composed of C. S. French, E. W. M. Day, Mrs. Blom, Mrs. Chas. Day sung with peculiar beauty and sweetness several appropriate selections.

The floral offering surpassed in profusion and beauty anything ever seen here.

After the services the remains were tenderly consigned to their last resting place in Park View cemetery.

The pallbearers were L. Watcher, W. S. Himself, Dr. Drysdale, Eugene Easton, Geo. Coleman, Roy Hoffman.

To Mrs. Davis, Merrill and Graham, the sincere and heartfelt sympathy of this community is extended in their bereavement.

The Sentinel's Tribute to Dr. Davis

The editor of the Sentinel knew the doctor only a few months, and can say that he was a man who united sound sense with strong convictions, and a candid, outspoken temper, eminently fitted to mould the rude elements of society into form and consistency and aid in raising a higher standard of citizenship. To this end there is no doubt that his sunshiny disposition largely contributed. He was invariably a good neighbor, and there was no happier family circle in the land than his. There was a family beauty about his life which won every heart. In temperament he was mild and conciliatory, and gained confidence when he seemed least to seek it. But because life and love are stronger than death, he is still the father of his two boys, upon whom he doted with such clinging fondness, and the companion still of his wife, who mourns earth's greatest loss.
