Obituary

Mr. Merrill G. Beard, whose arm was torn off at the shoulder last week by the cars, died last Friday. He leaves a wife and one child and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss. He has been in the express business here for the last 14 years and had won the confidence of the company so well that a few months a go when he contemplated resigning, the company urgently insisted upon his remaining in their employ with the promise of an increased salary. He was one of our most enterprising, thorough going business and trustworthy citizens, and his loss is deeply felt. He was 32 years of age.
