deceased was a member of the Christian church at this place and beloved by all
who knew her. She became a Christian at an early age of fifteen years and lived
a consistent and exemplary life, till the Master called her up higher for a
holier work in another field.
premature death has greatly afflicted a devoted sister and many relatives, and
has awakened a tender sympathy in the hearts of many loving brethren and sister
in the Lord. But amid this deep sorrow, they have the sweet consolation that as
her life's setting sun sank beneath Time's evening horizon, its last flickering
rays, shining through a shower of grief, painted a bow of hope upon that of
eternity's promised morning.

a profession of faith in Jesus Christ at an early age, and maintained his
Christian profession in a most exemplary manner.
A high sense of honor and Christian integrity were characteristic of his life.
education, which was very fair for his age, was arrested by failing health. A
bright future invited him onward, and a life of honor and usefulness seemed
spread out before him; but alas, disease came stealthily and undermined his
physical constitution. But as he faded gradually away from earth, his faith,
hope and love, grew brighter and stronger.
died with an unfaltering faith in Jesus and the resurrection.
remains were temporarily laid away in a garden by the family residence, and on
the 15th inst. were disinterred and removed to the Hustonville cemetery, where
his body was quietly laid down to
sleep its last long sleep, until Jesus shall come to raise it up again.

parents feel so heavily, is his eternal gain.

Wright, son of Mr. Thales Wright, a former citizen of the county, for the
Osceola (MO.) Weekly Democrat, and
offer to the bereaved relations and friends of the family, our sincere sympathy.

remarkably intelligent and manly little fellow; always up with his classes in
school, and a proud defender of the "Lost Cause"

county) by the Democrat, will be regarded by all who know her as eminently just:
becomes our painful duty as Journalists to record the particulars of a shocking
at this place about 3 o'clock on Friday afternoon last, by which Johnnie G.
Wright, son of Mr. Thales H. Wright, a highly respectable citizen, a young man
in the bloom and flush of
youth and vigor and incipient manhood, was hurried from time to eternity. The particulars of this sad affair are about as follows:
appears that young Wright, in company with two or three other lads and Mr.
Caldwell, the railroad contractor, were at the branch just under the hill and
beyond the point at which the
railroad hands are blasting, engaged in catching minnows for fishing purposes.
thus employed, a blast was let off, numberless pieces of the rock flying in the
direction of the party.
Caldwell, who was standing in close proximity to the deceased, saw a large
fragment of rock, weighing about forty pounds, flying through the air towards

himself; but before young Wright could escape, the fragment of rock fell on the
hill just above him, and rebounding,
struck him on the head just above of the left eye, and passing on, almost buried itself in the soft earth.
Caldwell procured assistance and medical ... (unreadable).

when Dr. Dozler,
a careful examination, pronounced his injuries necessarily fatal, lingered in a
insensible condition until about half-past 11 o'clock p.m. when his spirit
winged its flight to eternity.
the time of the accident the father of the deceased was absent at Richey's Mill,
but when it became known that Johnny could not possible survive his injuries, a
messenger was dispatched for
him, and he reached home just in time to see him breath his last.
Wright was born near Stanford, Kentucky, on the 14th day of December, 1854 and
in his eighteenth year. He was an honest, industrious and upright young man,
eminently faithful and singularly exemplary in all the relations of life, and
universally esteemed and beloved by all who knew him; and it will certainly be a
great source of consolation to the bereaved family to know that the universal
exclamation of our people, white and black, old and young, was, "What a
pity: Johnny was such a good boy!"
feeble words that we could pen would pay such an eloquent tribute to her who
filled the place of mother to him as these simple and spontaneous expressions.

he has been made master over many?"
