Mabel Mack was born Nov. 24, 1897 and died July 5, 1897 (paper has dates printed that way, no date or name of newspaper column) of inflamation of the stomach. Mabel was the only daughter of Dr. E. and T. Mack. She has not been well for some time, but her many friends were not alarmed about her until Thursday before her death. She bore her illness with patience and christian fortitude, scarcely ever complaining. She united with the church at the age of fifteen years, and took the golden rule as her guide. She was an earnest, workder in the Sunday school, and every Sunday morning found Mabel at her post. Her death has caused profound sorrow to all who knew her. We do feel as the poet says, "A precious one from us has gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in the home, That never can be filled." Oh ! could we but say one word of comfort to the bereaved parents and brother, but the kindest words fail to comfort. "the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away." Mabel was a member of Wabash Rebecca Lodge No. 498 of Montezuma, and Oakleaf lodge No. 428 good Templers. The Daughters of Rebecca had charge of the funeral.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Travis, Text "She is not dead but sleepeth," After which the remains were laid to rest in Helts Prairie cemetery there to await that welcome voice, "Come ye blessed of my father inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Rest in Jesus, wounded heart, Never more of life apart; He hath freed thee from all strife, That enfolds this earthly life, Taken thee from all thy care, Lifted thee ? ? ? fair, Sleep (last line missing).Carolyn Schwab

Body of RAY MACK Found Dangling From Beam In
Barn; Dead Since Monday
He was not seen anymore until yesterday when his brother went to the barn in search of him. He looked through the door and saw the body hanging by the neck from a chain attached to a beam. The brother called the town Marshall, who later notified Coroner Paul B. Casebeer. The coroner went to Cayuga to investigate the case. He found a chair standing on a wooden block. Mack had stood on the chair, attached the chain to his neck and jumped off. He probably had been hanging there since Monday. There were no marks on the body with the exception of imprints of the chain about the neck. Mack left a note asking that his accounts and other business be placed in charge of Attorney B.S. Aikman, of Newport. He also said he forgave his brother, for everything, and added, this is the best way to end it all.Carolyn Schwab
