BICKNELL BROS. •V \* OBITUARIES-1 HBEMHinHMMHneH H Judge Wheaton is Dead. Judge Elija D. Wheaton died at his * home in Ht. Pleasant on July 4, 1901, after a long and* painful illness, aged •64 years. He leayes a widow and three 3, children, Herbert L. "Wheaton of Sagi- now, Mr3. Ina Mills, of Illinois, and Mrs. Clara Smith o* Mt. Pleasant. The body was brought to Glare on Saturday for burial in the family lot in Cherry Grove cemetery. To those of our citizens who lived here a dozen years ago, the death of Judge Wheaton will seem a personal '•-'■■ Joss. He was a true friend—not to one or two or to a few persons, but to all. Coming to Clare county-with the first settlers he had shared the hardships of pioneer life and during the many years of his residence here he . won for himself the respect of all the people. He was always an advocate $£ what he thought to be right and was ever ready to make sacrifice, if necessary, to carry out his principles. Thus even those who differed from *f; . tiro respected his opinion. His influence in any good cause was never sought in vain. Perhaps the chief .reason for the firm hQid he had on the * people was his unselfishness. He was . always seeking to do good to others. , Especially was this true in his treat- _ 'jfinent of young men. He was their -staunch friend, giving them not only -good advice but material assistance in their early struggles to get a start. Mote than one now prosperous citizen ot this town can recall these acts of disinterested kindness on tbe part of Judge Wheaton and ascribe much of -the former's success in life to the boosts the Judge so generously, gave. '.-far , "H&-*vas,a public spirited citizen, freely -giving oi his means toward every ob- ■ /Meet In which his fellows were ihter- . Rested. For-* many years he was a -member of the school board, aposition fee was always proud to fill for he •Sought to bring our schools up to the highest standard. The many positions &e held in village and county attest the regard felt for him by the people. jPe- was Village President, Prosecuting '* . Attorney and three terms Judge of >--3?robate, the duties of each position fjflfng discharged at all times honestly -•gstd efiJcientiy. . Since his removal from Olare in 1888 he bas been a prominent and worthy citizen of Mt. Pleasant and has served the people of that city as mayor and of Isabella county as prosecuting attorney. He was an awful sufferer during the last four years, rheumatism m its worst form having taken firm hold on him. He battled bravely for lite but realized that" he could never get well, and 'he faced the great change with christian fortitude, being conscious and cheerful to tbe very last. Judge Wheaton was a member of the Presbyterian church and also of several fraternal orders, including the Odd Fellows, the Masons and the Ancient Order of United Workman. His funeral on Saturday afternoon was conducted by the Odd Fellows' lodges of Clare and Mt. Pleasant, the service at the grave being read by Rev. A. C. Barclay of the Clare lodge. A good man has gone. The people mourn and their sympathies go out to the widow and the fatherless. Death of Miss Bell Ironmunger. Death has again entered one of Clare's homes and taken from it a happy, young life. For nearly two weeks Miss Ironmunger^had been ill suffering from a partial sunstroke and the excessive warm weather being a serious menace to her recoyery, None thought but that with her excellent strong bodily -Constitution she would finally recover but last Saturday in the early morning hours the Angel of Death came and transplanted her in God's Acre. For the. past six years she has lived in Clare and her young life has been intermingled with,the young people to whom her early demise is a great sorrow. She was but seventeen years of age yet in these brief years she had accomplished much. Previous to her graduation she spent one summer at Prof. Bryron W\ 'King's school of Oratory. One year ago she was graduated from the Clare High School, and since that tim» has been teaching school. But a short time ago tbe class tie was broken when Beatrice Fall laid down her young life and now the class again loses one of its number, the alumni its fourth member and there'is a sadness among a large number of friends that one so young and with a life full of such promise, should be bo early taken away. Her bright* sunny smile and winning way will long be remembered. The funeral service was. held in the Congregational church Sunday afternoon conducted by Eev."M. Knowles and tbe large number of people who gathered to honor her memory showed the ' high esteem in which she was held. Mr. and Mrs, Graves, with whom she has lived for the past twelve years, have the. sympathy of a large circle of friends who, with them, mourn. Mrs. Edward Falk. After a long and severe illness Mrs. Edward Falk passed peacefully away Wednesday morning. Deceased was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Lawrence". Born in Ohio, November 29th, 1869. She came with her parents to Clare eighteen years ago where she has since resided. September 5th, 1885, she was united in marriage to .Edward Falk. To this union was born one son, Ray, now fifteen years of age, who with the parents, husband and one brother, Martin, are left to mourn their loss. Mrs. Falk died of consumption, having been unwell for the past twelve years. Last fall Ed. proposed a trip to New Mexico hoping the change of climate would benefit her, but she became too weak to uudertake the journey. Tbe funeral will be conducted from the home tomorrow at two p. m., Eey, Knowles officiating, and the remains interred in Cherry Grove cemetery. . The Temple S. S. Rally. The Sunday School Rally on the night of the 8th at Temple was well attended, and the address of Div Foster was enthusiastically .received. Dr. Foster is Secretary of the S. S. Union for New England having come-on a short trip west in the Interests of that organization. He reports that he is well pleased with Michigan. He left for Buffalo, on Tuesday morning'where he joins Supt. W. A, Willis of the Centra! District and then, returns to Boston, We wish the Sunday School at Temple continued -success, and thank the citizens,for their kindness and hospitality toward us. C. E. Parsons. Clare, Michigan.
