Died: “Over the River” - We copy the following notice of Mrs. Strong’s death as given in the last issue of the Cresset: At her home in the Grand Hotel, in th is city, on Sunday, August 24th, 1890, Mrs. Mary R. Strong, wife of Mortimer Strong, aged 44 years and 8 months. For the past three years Mrs. Strong has suffered untold agonies from cancer. Treatment by local physicians only tended to stay the ravages of the disease. Eminent physicians and surgeons came here, but with all their skill could not effect a cure. Finally, she went to Chicago and for a long time was under the personal care of the best known experts in the country, but even they could not stay the dread disease and a few months ago, she returned to her home and family. Mrs. Strong, whose maiden name was Benson, was born in Ohio. When quite young, she removed to Michigan with her parents and when 17 years old was married to Mortimer Strong. The union was blessed with several children, of whom three - Frank S., Harry and Viola - survive her. In 1880, Mrs. Strong came to Barber county in company with her husband. She was devoted to her husband, her children and her home. No matter whether under prosperity or adversity, whether under sunshine or clouds Mrs. Strong was always cheerful - a model wife and the best of mothers. She was a consistent Christian, having been a member of the M.E. church from the time she was 14 years old, and all during her life, she was practical in her Christianity, in that she was always willing to do what she could in aiding the down-trodden and oppressed. She was not afraid to die, but on the contrary said that were it not for her husband and children would be glad to go over. The funeral occurred Monday afternoon at 2:30 from the M.E. church, sermon by Rev. Phillips. The remains were followed to the cemetery by many sorrowing friends.
Married: Mr. Emory Multer and bride arrived from New York last Friday and they are now receiving the congratulations of their friends in this city. Mr. Multer is one of Kiowa’s most prosperous business men and is known throughout the country as one of the leading farmers and stock raisers of Barber county. Mrs. Multer, known until recently as Miss Marion Pierce, has been a successful teacher in the Franklin school for the last three years, and she is held in high regard by our people for her many estimable qualities. The Herald extends its best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Multer, with the hope that their lives may be full of sunshine as the state of their adoption.

Married: Mr. Lee, of Kiowa, was in the city today and appeared to be very friendly with our probate judge.

Mr. Mann, of Attica, was witnessed by about twenty-five of the intimate friends of the family. At 8:30 o’clock, as the wedding march was about to be brought to a close, the bride and groom entered the parlor. After congratulations had been extended, refreshments were served. The festivities attending the nuptials were continued until a late hour. The people of Kiowa may be congratulated that Mr. and Mrs. Lee intend to remain residents of the city. The following were received: watch and chain, Mr. Lee; spoons, Mr. and Mrs. John Lukens; knives and forks, Mr. and Mrs. John Robinson; knives and forks, Messrs.

Married: Invitations are out for the approaching marriage of Miss Lillian Connell of this city and Mr. M.S. Downey, of Wichita, which will take place Wednesday, Sept. 24th at 12:30 p.m. Both contracting parties have a large circle of friends in this section of the state, and the wedding will be one of the most brilliant affairs ever witnessed in Kiowa. [Kiowa news] See also Sep 27, pg 1, col 3: Last Wednesday at 12:30 p.m., Miss Lillian Connell, daughter of Capt. and Mrs. T. Connell, of this city, was united in marriage with Mr. M.S. Downey, a popular young gentleman of Wichita. The wedding, which took place at the family residence, was largely attended, being one of the most brilliant and festive affairs that ever occurred in Kiowa. The bride and groom entered the parlor at the completion of Mendelssohn’s Wedding March, which was rendered with much expression by Mrs. M.L. McClure. They were attended by four maids of honor, Misses Ella and Carrie Connell, sisters of the bride, Maude Maffet, of Anthony, and Evelyn Ewell. The ceremony was performed beneath a marriage bell of yellow roses, Rev. G.H. Perry officiating. The bride was beautiful in a gown of heavy white silk, the front of which was of gold and white brocade. A handsome pink curlew fan was an artistic accessory. After receiving congratulations, a delicious repast was served, one of the verandahs being enclosed with canvas in order to accommodate more guests. Those present from out of town were Miss Martha Maffet, of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Mr. and Mrs. Latham Jones and Miss Mattie Jones of Denver, Col., Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Maffet and daughter of Anthony, Kans. Mr. and Mrs. Downey left on the five o’clock train for Wichita, en route for their new home in Denver, Col. They were accompanied to the depot by a large number of the guests and their best wishes for their continued happiness, which were mingled with the regret that they were to leave this fair western city where they have so many friends. Below we publish a list of the bridal gifts which were both elegant and costly: [The list is too long to transcribe in full but it included a lot of sterling silver, china, a silver clasp hose supporter, sofa cushions, an Arabesque set carver, slumber pillows, a lace collar, California blankets, bronze statuettes, all sorts of linens, handkerchiefs, dressing table sets, a sewing machine, parlor lamps, carpet sweeper, an easel mirror, etc.]

Died: [Mrs. J.E. Hall, mother of Editor J.E. Hall] Perhaps there are but few of our readers who have not lingered around the hearthstone at home, listening to father, mother, brother and sister, as the everyday events of life were being discussed at eventide, and mother’s words were specially remembered and left an impression upon your memory as lasting as existence. Our mother’s maiden name was Miss H.D. Ellis; she was born in Auburn, New York in 1811. At a tender period of her age, the family moved to Orleans county, pioneers of that heavily timbered yet very productive country. At the age of nineteen years, she married Dr. J.E. Hall, and became the mother of three sons - the youngest and only survivor is the writer. With only one exception she has resided in that township until her visit to us last February. Becoming infatuated with the country and protracted her stay, until nearly five weeks ago she was suddenly prostrated with bilious fever and died September 20th, in her 80th year. She has long been an active member of the Baptist church, a favorite teacher in the Sabbath School, and an earnest worker in the rough and rugged pathway of life. Having acquired a thorough knowledge of medicine, many a sufferer owes their recovery to her skillful care and the poor were never turned empty-handed away from her door. She was called Aunt Halliette by her numerous relatives which soon became her popular name. She died as she had lived - ready to respond to her Master’s call. She came west like a happy school girl, with great anticipations and hopes for a bright future, but her broken day dream settled into night’s black noon, as she died at midnight. She was constantly attended by our family, with untiring labors of love, until she left our hands for the better land. “God calls our loved ones, but we lose not wholly what he hath given. They live on earth, in thought and deed, as truly as in His Heaven.” [See Oct 25, 1890, pg 3, col 4, for death of Fanny S.C. Hall, granddaughter of Mrs. J.E. Hall and daughter of Editor J.E. Hall]

Family Reunion: October first was a memorable event in the history of the Julian family of Moore township. There were thirty-seven members of the family who assembled at the residence of F.C. Julian and held a grand family reunion. This company were composed of families from Mexico, Texas, Missouri and Kansas and the most distant relatives present were not below cousins. Those who have lived outside this state have become infatuated with this country and every one of them will become permanent residents of this county and Barber county holds out its cornucopia well rounded out with hearty welcomes to all of them with their enterprising citizenship.

Died: George R. Allen died at the home of his parents in Garden City, on Sept. 28th, from injuries received the day before by being thrown from a horse. He was a young many of exceptionally bright mind and an exemplary Christian. He was not yet 18 years of age, but had been a member of the C.P. church for several years, showing by his bright face and happy disposition that a child could be a Christian and still enjoy life. Though his life was short, no doubt he had done great work by example, for his was a life worthy of imitation. Signed: J.H. Williams.

Died: Dr. Fanny S.C. Hall [daughter of Editor J.E. Hall] - There is a time in the history of almost every life when the loss of one who is held most dear seems to turn the fact of all nature into a cloudy mist and cover even the sun, moon and stars as in an eclipse. Last Tuesday morning at Boston, Mass., Fanny, our youngest daughter died very suddenly. The dreadful news came like the stroke of an unlooked-for poniard [defined as a small slim dagger], which stabs and makes a wound so deep that the blood will never be stanched nor the flesh cease to quiver. A young physician at the very threshold of honor and usefulness, she was receiving her last preparatory training in the New England Hospital, going out into the byways and among the poor of the great city, dispensing not only the various kinds of medicines and advice for those ills which flesh is heir to, but carrying with her in her sympathetic nature a brightness which like a ray of sunshine gladdened the homes and lives of all with whom she came in contact. She died, hopeful to the last, with only the attendance of her co-workers in the profession,, with the bloom of the freshness of girlhood upon her cheek, a smile upon her lips, a laugh in her eye, a song in her heart, the music of which seemed overflowing with melody even in the most trying moments. Died, without the fond goodbye or last embrace of either father, mother, brother, sister or near friend. She was born in Carlton, Orleans county, N.Y., March 7th, 1866. She was merry hearted and possessed a remarkably bright mind. Her first diploma for her scholarly attainments was received when she completed the classical course in ‘84 at the high school in Albion, N.Y., where she resided with her parents during five happy years. Having decided upon her chosen profession for her life work and being awarded a free scholarship in the Cornell University at Ithaca, N.Y., she entered that institution and at the end of two years received a Medical Preparatory certificate. She was one year with Dr. C.A. Greene at the Sanitarium in Castile, after which she entered the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, employing her vacations at the Sanitarium. She graduated with the class of ‘89 in the Regular College of Medicine, being one of the youngest students in the class to receive the degree of M.D. It was soon after her graduation and during a protracted illness that almost proved fatal, but from which she finally recovered, owing to the skillful treatment and watchful care received at the Sanitarium, that her friends began to mark the development of her Christian character. It was wonderful to see her fortitude and endurance of pain while she uttered no complaint. Even then she seemed resigned, if it were the Divine Will, to leave earth and all its allurements so tempting spread out before her, but her life was spare, health and strength came again bringing with them a fresh impetus. The period of time allotted her at the Boston Hospital had almost expired, in a short time she would have seen our western prairies and breathed the pure air under the sunny skies of Kansas, but death lurked in the slimy streets and unwarmed buildings. She contracted a severe cold, the effects of which soon snapped the gossamer thread that separates existence in this world from that in the heavenly beyond. We ask - Why the fairest rose in the garden is oft times ruthlessly plucked? Why the most brilliant gem in the cluster is lost? Why the plans and purposed of the most generous and noble natures are frustrated and in our human weakness we try and answer. The fragrance of the rose was too sweet for mortal sense; the gem too dazzling in its radiance for mortal eyes; the purposes too great to reach perfection in this world. The poet Milton tells us that “All is best, though we oft doubt What the unsearchable dispose Of Highest Wisdom brings about.” It was but one short month before that the grandmother, between whom and the granddaughter there existed a tender attachment, was called home. Perhaps her welcome in that blest abode will be more joyous and her celestial life happier that a loved one went before. “If earth be but the shadow of heaven” what unmeasurable bliss lies in the untrod pathway of the future; what untold rapture and delight await those who yet remain and hold her death, if it were possible, after having ended this earthly existence so laden with sinfulness and imperfections, to gain an entrance through the pearly gates and meet her among the redeemed, who was loved as an angel on earth, but now as one in heaven. [See Dec 6, 1890, pg 3, col 6 for Memorial poem “To Fanny,” by F.W.N., Auburn, N.Y.]

Died: Few Callaghan - This young man died in Wellington last Friday from the effects of a railroad accident. He was formerly a resident of Kiowa and was respected by all his associates for his manly bearing and a generous, friendly disposition. He attended school in Kiowa last winter and six of his mates were bearers at the funeral. The business houses of the city were closed during the funeral service as a mark of respect to the deceased. He was also a general favorite among the brakemen of the Santa Fe who rendered every assistance in their power to relieve his sufferings. The sympathy of the Herald is extended to the members of the family in t his their sad hour when they are called upon to part with one so young and full of promise for a life of future usefulness.

Married: The residence of Mr. and Mrs. Knight, at Knight Station, four miles east of this city, was enlivened by the presence of a large circle of friends last Saturday evening, November 8th, 1890, to witness the marriage of Wm. *Osborn, of Wellington, to Miss Anna L. Knight, Rev. Tillsbury officiating. Numerous presents were lavishly bestowed upon the happy contracting parties and the festivities of the occasion continued until a late hour. Mr. Osborn is the railroad store keeper at Wellington and fully enjoys the confidence of the company and has a host of friends who wish him the best of life’s blessings. Miss Anna is the only daughter of our popular conductor upon this branch of the Santa Fe and is loved for her social winsome graces. To this young couple, the Herald wishes a happy voyage upon the matrimonial sea. [*Note: Correction on Nov 22, 1890: The groom’s name was Wm. Osborn Williams.]

Ingraham, of late carried a laughing eye, that his step was buoyant and his general spirt accelerated and we were at a loss to account for this good feeling, especially so soon after election, but we were informed that a young real estate agent made his appearance at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Ingraham last Saturday and we doubt if they name him Jeremiah. The congratulations of the Herald always follow.

Married: On Tuesday afternoon at the Grand Hotel, the Rev. W.D. Phillips joined in marriage Mr. G.B. Wiley of Kiowa and Mrs. Mary Harris of Indiana. This wedding was a great surprise to his friends as Mr. Wiley was always considered a confirmed old bachelor, yet this happy couple receives the royal tip from the Herald.
pg 3
Married: Last Sunday there occurred in our city a genuine elopement, brought about by the passionate devotion which two of our most respected young people cherished for each other and which was successfully accomplished by a serious of maneuvers that for complexity of arrangement is fully equal to anything which the god of the piercing shaft [Cupid!] has yet to suggest to those lovers whose fond hopes are being crushed to earth in their native city. When it was noised abroad on our streets Monday noon that George Finney and Miss Laura Vaughn were in the vicinity of St. Louis, that they were then viewing the world, which had suddenly assumed for them roseate, there as Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Finney, the report created no little excitement. This report was strengthened by the fact that among the passengers on the morning train was a relative of the bride who went as far as Attica to obtain information concerning the departure of the happy pair. Further particulars developed the following: Miss Vaughn, having received from a friend in Sharon an invitation to visit her, bought a ticket for that place. Mr. Finney’s ticket read Attica, and a mutual friend bought two tickets for St. Louis. The holder of the St. Louis tickets, with a solemn countenance and with much ceremony, bade his many friends who had collected at the depot a parting adieu and the three boarded the cars. Soon after leaving the city, the tickets were exchanged and the last seen of the ecstatic groom-elect was at Attica on the rear platform of the fast moving train, when holding his hat aloft in one hand and clasping to his heart the fair form of the soon-to-be bride with the other, he exclaimed, “Monte Christo! The World is mine.” The Herald extends best wishes with a hope that as gently they glide down life’s silvery tide in a world that is wide, they may always be happy side by side.

North assumed his most serious attitude and solemnly announced that he was unexpectedly called upon to perform an old time ceremony, while new to many, he hoped all would sooner or later endure with fortitude and courage. By this time, all were keenly sensible that something “just lovely,” as a fair maiden expressed it, was about to happen, when upon a given signal, Mr. Stephen Garrison and Miss Minnie Anderson, daughter of A.S. Anderson, all of this city, presented themselves in front of the altar, when the Rev. J.B. North, after a few short metre exercises, proceeded in accordance with statute made and provided by the Presbyterian church to pronounce them man and wife, and among all the happy people in that delighted assembly, none were more felicitously blissful than Mr. and Mrs. Garrison, from the moment they were declared to be “Two souls with but one single thought, two hearts that beat as one,” and received the united congratulations of those present.

Died: “A Fatal Accident” - A very sad and distressing accident, which resulted in the death of Mr. Frank Robinson, of Hazelton, Barber county, occurred near that city Friday evening last. From residents of the immediate locality, the Herald’s correspondent learns that Mr. F.S. Smith and the deceased were out hunting and while riding together in a road cart, approached the residence of Mr. James O’Connell, with whom they stopped and exchanged the civilities of the day. The deceased’s gun was resting on the slats of the cart with the muzzle resting against his shoulder. After leaving Mr. O’Connell’s, they had proceeded but a few paces when the cart gave a sudden lurch, by which the gun was thrown forward and coming in contact with some hard substance. Its contents were discharged into the deceased’s side, ranging upward. Upon hearing the report, and before realizing that he had been shot, Mr. Robinson jumped from the vehicle and after reaching the ground, clasped his hands to his breast and exclaimed, “My God, see what I have done,” and instantly expired. Mr. O’Connell at once conveyed the heartrending intelligence to the parents of the deceased, while J.T. Terhune and F.S. Smith carried the remains to town. The untimely and sudden death of Mr. Robinson, who by his quiet, gentle manners, and his unassuming department had endeared him to a large circle of admiring friends, is sincerely regretted by all who knew him.

Died: “Death of Captain North” - Captain Henry H. North, a well-known United States naval officer, died very suddenly on Wednesday at Mountain Lake Park of paralysis, after a brief illness. Captain North had been four weeks at Mountain Lake Park for the benefit of his health. He was in his seventy-third year. His father was the late Captain Joseph North, a sea captain. Captain Henry H. North was born in Dorchester county. At the age of nineteen, he took command of one of the Chesapeake Bay vessels, and commanded vessels on the bay until 1858. He then went into the wood business in this city. When General Butler came to Baltimore, Captain North supplied him with the wood used in making the camp fires on Federal Hill. He afterwards piloted Butler’s command to Fortress Monroe. He piloted the Pocahontas, a supply ship, when that craft went to pieces on the bay. All on board were saved. In October, 1864, he received his commission as acting master and pilot in the Navy, and was stationed at the Washington Navy Yard until 1882, when he retired from active life. He was the last pilot honorably discharged from the Navy. He commanded the Despatch when that vessel was the Admiral’s flagship, and showed marked bravery in taking torpedoes from the James River. Captain North leaves a widow, four daughters and three sons. He had seven brothers, all of whom were sea captains. Captain James North, of this city, is the only surviving brother. Captain North was a member of Harmony Lodge of Odd Fellows, and was some time ago a member of the Order of Red Men. During and after the war, he was commander of the following vessels besides those named: Phlox, Fortune, Trianna, Nina, Mahopac and Agawam. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at two o’clock from the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. G.T. Cecil, 2323 North Calvert street. The remains were brought to Mr. Cecil’s residence yesterday afternoon from Mountain Lake Park. The interment will be made in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. The above we have copied from the Baltimore American of July 25, 1890. The late Captain Henry B. North spoken of in this obituary was the father of our much esteemed fellow citizen, Rev. J.B. North, with whom we are all acquainted.
