EXCERPTS FROM THE
REPUBLICAN-REGISTER, GALESBURG, ILLINOIS
April 5, 1893
William Gardener, of Coldbrook, died March 25th, age 52
years. Funeral services were held on Thursday at Tolbert Creek
Church, by Rev. Mr. Pryor, of Cameron. He leaves a wife and five
children to mourn his departure. Mr. Gardener was loved and
respected by all who knew him. Sincere, kind and upright, and will
be sadly missed in the neighborhood where he had dwelt so long.
They laid him away in the Mosher burial ground, while sobs broke
the stillness of that beautiful day. And we believe he has gone to
that beautiful land, the far away home of the soul, where the
storms never beat, but the years of eternity roll.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Adcock were called to Missouri by the illness
of Mrs. J.C. Adcock. They returned in one week. She was still
living, but had no hopes of her recovery.
Mrs. Cap Atchison and Mrs. C.B. Weeks invited the ladies of the
neighborhood to Rag Bees. Mrs. A. on Thursday and Mrs. W. on
Friday. Both were well attended.
Miss Emma Loveridge will teach the spring term of school at Locust.
Aunt Narcissa Adcock will start for Nebraska soon. She is a spry
lady of 73 years of age.
A MONMOUTH paper claims that nearly a month has
passed by without a marriage license being issued in that county.
The reason is, no doubt, because Warren county parties get their
licenses and are married in this city.
SAM FELKER’s explanation was “you have to make
friends of one gang of thieves in order to catch another gang of
thieves.” A pertinent inquiry would be, “wasn’t that about what
the bank did?”

Was I dreaming? No. The
sweet songsters of 17 maidens stood at my window and the first
words I heard as they wakened me were, “Don’t Grieve for Me
Darling”. Song after song floated on the midnight air and I
thought as I listened that this was surely a glimpse of heavenly
music, only there the sweet singers will never go away, and we
won’t grieve for you, darling for we hope to see you there.

curse of rum. His wife, a sweet woman, was my childhood
companion, and her two children, Eddie and May, aged 14
and 10 years. Mrs. Johnston’s maiden name was Emma Chicken
and she has the sympathy of many friends. She is left to bear
all this suffering alone while the saloon man stands with wide
open door to eat up all the cash a man can carry and then take
the man himself, while the wife and the children are helpless to
defend the right. The funeral of Mr. Johnston was held at the
residence, 1002 South street, on Friday afternoon.
