In Peaceful Slumber
At the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. W. Switzer, of Bucklin, Mrs. Catherine E. Akers passed quietly away last Sunday evening, April 18, 1909.

As she became no easier, the doctor was summoned, but her Savior soon called her to her home above, for about eleven-thirty o’clock, she passed peacefully away.

The funeral ceremony at the church (Union Chapel) Thursday, Oct. 28, consisted of a short song service, followed by a prayer by Elder Martin Ford after which the Modern Woodmen of American took charge and performed a very beautiful and impressive service after which the body was consigned to its final resting place in Union Chapel cemetery.
Undertaker R. A. Mason very skillfully conducted the funeral arrangements and deserves the praise of all.
Owing to the high esteem in which the subject of this sketch was held, the news of the sad accident and death cast a gloom over the entire community that will no soon wear away. All that loving hearts and willing hands could do were of no avail. The reaper Death called him and we were left sad and lonely. To the heart broken widow and daughters a sorrowing community mingles it tears with yours in this sad hour.
Indeed a man has gone who was remarkable in many respects. Handsome in appearance, a sunny disposition, quite and reserved in manner, judicious in forming opinions, always guided by purest motives, placing honesty in dealings and devotion to his family above all earthly duties.
His high character and kind regard unconsciously won all hearts to himself and without effort held them to the end.
Our loved ones pass away one by one. We are lonely without them. Shall we never see them again? Memory turns with lingering regret to recall those smiles and the loved tone of those dear voices. “They visit us in our dreams, floating over our memories like shadows over moonlit waters.” When the heart is weary with anguish and the soul is bowed with grief, do they not whisper thoughts of comfort and hope.
We feel sad because they are gone from us; but while we weep, they are clothed in garments of light and sing songs of celestial joy. They will not return to us as before, but we shall go to them and share their pleasures and compete with them in the path of endless enjoyment through a never ending eternity.
“Farewell, good man, good angel now!
This hand, soon, like thine own, shall lose it’s cunning, too:
Soon shall this soul, like thine, bewildered stand,
Then leap to thread the free, unfathomed blue.”

After the death of her mother she quit teaching and came home to act as a mother to the rest of the family. She took care of her father until his death and then continued to keep for her brother Tom, with whom she lived at the time of her death. Her love and devotion to her home and family portrays her true character and reveal those high ideal of true womanhood.
Miss Etta united with the Presbyterian church some 30 years ago, and was a devout member, giving of her time and means for the upbuilding of the cause of Jesus. She attended the services of her church as long as her health would permit.

SUICIDE AT ETHEL
Ralph Borron Takes Ounce of Carbolic Acid
Last Saturday evening between six and seven o’clock the citizens of Ethel, 12 miles northeast of Bucklin, were greatly shocked when the news went out that Ralph Borron, a young man just in the prime of life, had committed suicide by swallowing an ounce of carbolic acid, which caused his death in less than two hours. He was a bright young man, and no one dreamed of him taking his own life.
From what information we were able to gather of this sad affair it seems that the young man had quarreled with his parents about something just before taking the drug. It is stated that he refused to go home to supper saying he “would never go there to eat again,” at the same time taking the small phial from his pocket and drinking its contents before his father, who was near him, could prevent it.
We did not learn anything that would lead one believe that domestic trouble had anything to do with bringing this sorrow upon his family, but on the contrary his home was a most amiable one, and peace and happiness reigned supreme.
Deceased was married last May to Miss Tressa Riley of Marceline, and most of the time since his marriage he had worked in a general store for his father, W. H. Borron, at Ethel.

Had Been a Resident of Bucklin for Fifty Years
Monday morning, we were once more reminded of the sad intelligence that death is abroad in the land and the spoiler is among the works of the Almighty.
All that are born must die.
We have seen the beautiful rose on the house plant, spread its leaves to the morning sun. We returned and behold it was dying on the stalk, its grace and form had gone, its loveliness had vanished, its leaves had fallen, to the ground and no one gathered them again.
So, it is with man, he comes forth in the pride of his strength, his cheeks glow with beauty, his limbs are full of activity, he walks, runs and leaps and rejoices that he is more excellent than the rose.
The grim reaper of death comes along and behold life departs from him, the breath leaves his nostrils, and he departs to another land.
The life of the rose is lost and decayed, my brother: The life of man goes forth to God and lives forever.

He settled on a farm 2 ½ miles south of Bucklin, where he lived until he was elected treasurer of Linn County, then moved to Linneus and at the expiration of his term of office moved to Bucklin, where he spent the remainder of his life. He was once elected one of the member of the county court and a number of times a justice of the peace. For over 35 years he held some office of trust at the hands of the people.
Thus a good man passes beyond our reach; thus another soul has entered into rest. The funeral sermon was preached to a large circle of mourning friends by Rev. L. Sipple.

In Memory of
“It must be sweet, in childhood, to give back the spirit to its Maker, ere the heart has grown familiar with the ways of sin and sown, to garner up its bitter fruits. I knew a child whose infant feet had trod the blossoms of some seven springs, but when the eighth came round and called her out to reveal in its light, she turned away and sought her chamber to lie down and die.”
The dear child was born October 4th, 1903, died August 30th, 1911. Age 7 years, 10months and 26 days.
While she was spared to us, she was always a dutiful, lovable child. Before she could speak a word, she could hum the music of several songs, plainly enough that we could tell distinctly what she was singing.
She started to the public school the day she was five years old. We asked the teacher if it was all right for her to be in school, and was assured that she was welcome. For Maude was such a lovable child. She attended every day that school was taught in her room, from then on, until she had the measles last spring. She was a regular attendant at the M. E. Sunday School, never missing a day if she was in town. So that when she was taken sick, several of the neighbors came in to see why Maude was not at Sunday School that day. She told her little companions that she would be there next Sunday. But it was not to be. And before the third Sunday came, she was with the angels, singing around the throne of our dear Savior, who said, “Suffer little children to come unto me.”
In a case of this kind, words are such poor things! It is impossible for us to express the deep sorrow we feel. Our baby is gone! But we know our loss is only temporary. It is only a short time till we shall clasp to our hearts again, in that land where parting is unknown. What concerns us the most is, to live in such manner that when it comes our turn to pass over the river, we may hear the Savior bid us a hearty welcome.
The funeral was at the
In this connection we wish to thank our many friends for the kindness and consideration shown us during our bereavement.
The church was full, and a great many stood in the church yard. We have no words to adequately express our appreciation of the many acts of kindness shown us. We can only pray God in His mercy to spare you this sorrow as long as He can.

Dear, sweet precious Verda, we bid thee farewell! Sleep thou peacefully, sweetly till the bright morn of eternity shall dawn, and then all they patient suffering in this life shall be rewarded by a beautiful crown that shall far outshine the glittering baubles of earth’s splendor, when let us hope we shall all again meet thee, to clasp fond hands on the other shore where God himself shall wipe away the tears from our eyes. Let us hope we shall walk hand in hand in the shade of heaven’s bowers, and as we then view the radiant shores of the heavenly world, we can recount the trials and privation of our earth life with the blest assurance that never more can sickness, sorrow or death separate us, and that we shall then bask in the sunshine of God’s love and the love of each other, forever and forever.

Passing out of the shadows into a clearer night,
Stepping behind the curtain, getting a brighter light,
Weary of all earthly pleasures, heart sick and ready to sleep,
Ready to bid our friends farewell, wondering why they weep,
Passing out of the shadows, into eternal day,
Why do we call this dying, this sweet going away?
