CHARLES F. NEWMAN

Obituary of Charles F. Newman

Baldwyn Home Journal

Baldwyn, Miss., Friday, Oct. 22, 1920

"Earth's Highest ....In 'Here He Lies',

And 'Dust To Dust' Concludes The Noblest Song." - Young

Charles F. Newman, for Thirty-six years owner, editor, and publisher of this paper passed away at his home here early Saturday morning, after a lingering illness of several weeks. In the still watches of the night, just before the birth of a new day, the messenger of death came and stole quietly away with his prize. So soft was the tread of his feet that even those who slept close by, ever wakeful to his needs, never heard the coming or the going.

For weeks the shadow of Death had been upon him, yet it only seemed to add patience and sweetness to his nature. On the very night that he died he sat up in his bed and laughed with his family over humorous incidents recalled from the youthful days of his children. He was a great lover of his family. It was his one great delight to gather them around him. At home he was full of jokes and stories, telling them with a remarkable ability. That talent thus cultivated around his fireside was one of the sources of his mastery of men.

While the silence of death wraps and chills us at this moment, memories, sweet and precious, come crowding in. Let us, if possible, gather up the elements of his life and weave them into a picture for the walls of memory.

Charley Newman was born in the year 1862 in DeCalb County, Ala. At an early age [about 16 - circa 1878] he entered the newspaper work, becoming connected with the old Fulton Courier, owned at that time by St. Claire Lawrence. Two years later [circa 18801 he came to Baldwyn and founded the "Signet". From that time until his death his lot had been cast with the people of this community. He was only Eighteen years of age when he bravely opened the doors of the Signet office. But he had in his heart a mighty surging of love for people. His mission was to serve them.

It would take pages to tell of the struggles for existence made by the young town which had sprung up in the heart of the forest primeval. No electric lights shone forth to guide the erring traveler. No concrete was there to protect the feet of the citizen. Saturday was a day when the women of the town dared not come out of their homes lest they be shocked by the rav....

But there was a little body of people here who determined to make of Baldwyn one of the most beautiful little towns in the South. And it was with these that the young man allied himself and his publication. Together they grew and learned to love each other.

In the year 1885 he was married to one of the fairest young ladies of the countryside, Elizabeth Olivia Pearson, daughter of a Methodist minister by that name, who some of the older residents will remember as a devout man of God. She was a true partner in life; a faithful wife; a wonderful mother. To this woman was born eight children, five boys and three girls, in whom the parents delighted.

He was a brilliant writer. He was always to be found on the side of progress, and added valuable aid in the up building of a Christian community. His editorials bore no uncertain attitude. He was clear in his condemnation of all that was wrong. His heart was with his people. His publication was a guiding star to which they looked with ever increasing confidence for advice and counsel. Although it took a great deal of fortitude in those days to take a public stand on the issues which came before the people, he was never found attempting to sidetrack them.

He put the kindliest construction possible on the frailties of his fellow man, ever ready to assist them in distress, sympathizing with them in trouble, and rejoice with them in their pleasures. At the death-bed he was found, and in the sick room, anxious to comfort and assist. "The deaths ye have died" he watched beside, and the "live ye have lived," were his. The columns of his paper were ever open to the cause of humanity. Never a poor, hungering soul was refused admission to his door. His life was one of service, with never a thought of pecuniary remuneration. Embarrassing this sometimes to him and to his family. Yet he was always optimistic, believing that sometime, somewhere he would be rewarded, and a staunch adherer to the creed "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches."

No bronze nor marble shaft, no splendor of ancient or modern tombs, play of mortal genius can adorn the [life?] of such a man. "A superior and commanding human intellect," a truly great man, his life has touched that of a vast number of others, as a burning torch which touches here and there a tuft of dry grass on a wide prairie, leaving the whole field alight from the potent contact

It is sad to confine to the dust the body of one we love, but how infinitely more sad if we were compelled to part with the spirit which animated that tenement of clay. The gift of his life we have and of that the tomb cannot deprive us.

It was beautiful to see the love the people held for him. Hundreds gathered round the bier to gaze on the face so familiar in their midst. To their minds there rushed recollection of kindly words that had flowed from his pen, comforting those who had lost some friend or relative, for he was as tender and compassionate as a child.

The funeral cortege was the largest seen here in years. The floral offering surpassed in size and quantity that of any other we have ever seen, testifying to the place he held in the hearts of his countrymen.

Tenderly the body was laid to rest in the Masonic cemetary. The mound was a perfect mass of gorgeous flowers. We gaze with tear-bedimmed eyes upon their rare beauty, and think of the life which has gone from us, which, like the rose that is crushed in the hand, gives forth from its bruised petals a greater fragrance. And we turn from the grave with sorrowing hearts and silent tread and once again take up the broken thread of life and strive to mend the broken strands.
