Died at her home in Harmon, Okla., Monday morning March 31st Mrs. Ethel Castiller, wife of Charley Castiller, who up till a short time ago run a general store at Harmon. She was the eldest daughter of Mrs. Wm. McCormick, who formally ran the Demo Hotel at Arnett.
None but hose who have sat in the Shadow of a great bereavement can justly weigh such a sorrow as this. Those who have gone down into the valley of suffering and stood for months by the side of a loved one, as hope after hope dropped away as the petals fall from a fading flower, know that such anguish cannot find solace in the tenderest words. She who has gone forth could not be supported on her solitary path by any earthly friend.
The husband with a devotion few men are capable of, whose strength was given sweetly, tenderly to this previous invalid, whose heroic devotions never faltered, could not detain her by the clasp of earthly love; but after the last word had been spoken, the last sign of recognition was gone, a look of peace settled on her face which proclaimed victory, and he knew she was resting on a might arm.
To the bereaved we extend our sympathy and can only say: That each death is a link that binds us to the beyond, so let us live and do that when our time comes we will be found a good link in the endless chain of the plan of nature.
