Mrs. James Syth and daughter Myrtle attended the Ladies Aid meeting at Ed Fahey's Thursday.

Mr. Fred Weast of Hebron, Wis., arrived Friday night to attend the funeral of his brother, E.E. Weast.

Lloyd Weast arrived from Dodge City, Kansas Sunday morning. Miss Pearl Weast is expected to reach here from Seattle, Wash. Tuesday afternoon.

This community was greatly shocked to learn of the untimely death of Glen Hoffman and all unite in extending sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman, in their bereavement.

Mr. and Mrs. H. Bostwick and family, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Stanley and family, Mrs. Atkins and family, and Alfred Gemmeke visited Marvey Chadwick and mother on Sunday.

Theresa Gries and Walter Stabnow, Ray and Mary Potter called at Syth's Sunday evening.

Mr. Parker went to Medford Saturday morning on business.

Myrtle Syth and Mrs. Joe Christie attended services at the chapel Sunday afternoon.

This community and surrounding neighborhood was greatly shocked and grieved to hear of the sudden death of Mr. E.E. Weast, Friday morning, from heart failure.

Mr. Weast was, for some time, a sufferer from this dread disease but during the past few months he was particularly free from any alarming symptoms, and his sudden death is a terrible blow to the grief stricken family.

Mr. and Mrs. Weast were pioneer settlers of Clark County, having come here in the early seventies and locating on the farm which he owned up to the time of his death.

He was an up to date and progressive farmer, a kind and generous neighbor, and his sterling integrity and upright character made him a man liked and trusted everywhere he was known.

By Mr. Weast's untimely death the community loses an honored and respected citizen, a kind and accommodating neighbor, the bereaved family, a loving husband and devoted father.

With sincere and heartfelt sorrow the neighbors and friends offer their sympathy and condolences to the sorrowing family.
