Page, Archy N. (3 NOV 1883 - 15 MAY 1915)

(Printed at request of Stevenson, Wash. Independent)

Last Saturday, May 15, 1915, at University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pa., occurred the death of Archy N. Page of Carson. Mr. Page went to Philadelphia about eight weeks ago to consult a specialist regarding a severe infection of the eyes, from which he had been suffering for some time. After his arrival there, three operations were performed in an endeavor to relieve the trouble, but all were unsuccessful, and death came as the indirect result of the last operation. The body, accompanied by the wife of the deceased, arrived in Portland Thursday evening, and was conveyed to the Finley Undertaking Parlors, at the chapel of which the funeral services will be held today at 2:30 p.m. Interment will be in Rose City Park Cemetery under the auspices of the Masons. The following friends will act as pallbearers: Charles Wheeler, M. L. Thompson, F. E. Grigsby, R. A. Sullivan, N. O Anderson and Anson Hickman.

Archy N. Page was born at Humbird, Clark County, Wis., Nov. 3, 1883. At an early age he moved with his parents to Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., where he grew to young manhood, and graduated from the high school at that place in June 1903. The following fall he entered the College of Law at the University of Wis., and received his degree in 1906. Shortly after graduation he came to Carson and for a time acted as auditor for the Wind River Lumber Co. He then opened an office for the practice of law at Carson, which he maintained up to the time of his recent departure for the east. A year or more ago, in connection with Messrs. Wetherall and Thompson, he organized the Carson Trading Co., with which concern he had since been actively identified. Hew as an enthusiastic Mason and was instrumental in organizing the Carson lodge, of which he was the first Worshipful Master.

Personally, Mr. Page was of an exceedingly kind and considerate nature, a man of high, worthy ideals, and one whose home life was the embodiment of zealous love, devotion, and attention to the happiness and welfare of those about him. He took a keen interest in public affairs and cherished many humanitarian reforms which, it is fair to believe, he would have succeeded in helping to put into successful operation, had he been spared to devote his time and attention to them. A man of strong and decided convictions, he was implacable in opposing what he considered the wrongs of this world, and on the other hand, he was as unqualifiedly loyal and persistent in his support of that which he believed to be right. He was, by nature, unobtrusive and modest, yet imbued with such qualities of sterling character and staunch manhood, and of kindness, courtesy and unselfish thoughtfulness towards others, that be won a host of friends wherever he went, but whom his untimely death will be deeply and sincerely mourned.

Of his immediate family he leaves a wife and infant daughter; father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Page of Carson; and one sister, Mrs. C. F. Palmborg of Portland. To these, in this hour of overwhelming grief and bereavement, is extended the most heartfelt sympathy and consolation of the many friends.
