REEL #M867/KSHS Microfilm Collection

The Medicine Lodge Cresset (meaning "bright light") was a weekly newspaper, published in Medicine Lodge beginning early in 1879. At the time this reel begins, Thursday, November 1, 1888, L.M. Axline was the publisher; publication changed to Fridays in June 1890.

Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. The information has been copied as accurately as possible, but errors may still occur. Minor printing errors have been corrected, but otherwise the information is presented as it originally appeared. Please consult the individual reels to verify an item. I do not have any further information about these individuals or families. Contributed by Ellen Knowles Bisson (thebissons@worldnet.att.net).

Died: George Simpson’s babe, that we mentioned last week being dangerously sick, died Saturday evening. Another flower is transplanted from earth to Heaven; another gone to join the angels; another tie to bind the hearts of those lost behind to closer love to their Master; another one taken of which Christ said,”Of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” The family have the sympathy of the people in the time of sorrow, but there is no sympathy like that of the Saviour.

Funeral services at the Presbyterian church were conducted by Rev. J.B. North. Christian J. Walstad was born in Norway, coming to America when a young man. He came to Barber county in 1878 and settled on Antelope Flat east of this city, proved up a quarter of land and there resided until 1887, when he removed to the Panhandle of Texas - Ochiltree county. A year or two since his health began to decline and it was finally ascertained that cancer of the stomach was his trouble. Expert medical treatment was sought, without benefit, and about three months ago, he was brought to his son’s residence in this city. to await the summons. Mr. Walstad, up to the time he was stricken with the dreadful cancer, was a remarkably strong, hard working man. He could always find work to do, and his services were in demand at a premium, on account of his strength and skill and the rapidity with which he worked. He was a good manager and provider and a kind and loving husband and father. He leaves a wife and nine children - two boys and seven girls. J.C. Walstad, of this city, is the oldest and he and four of his sisters are married. Death by cancer is one of the most terrible. The dread disease kills its victims by inches, sending out its death-dealing fibers day by day and in the still watches of the night. Yet as a general thing people afflicted with the dreadful malady, like Mr. Walstad, become resigned and return to their Creator gladly, knowing that death must sooner or later claim us all.
