REEL #M805/KSHS Microfilm Collection

The Barber County Index was a weekly newspaper, published in Medicine Lodge beginning at the end of 1880. At the time this reel begins, Wednesday, January 2, 1889, E.P. Caruthers was publisher; in February of that year, W.G. Musgrove joined with Mr. Caruthers and in August 1890, Mr. Caruthers sold his interest to H. Walker of Elm Mills township. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel continues through December 30, 1891. 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.

Birthday: Little Francis Young celebrated her fourth birthday last Thursday. A number of her little friends were invited to spend the afternoon with her, and all accepted the invitation. A number of very pretty little presents were received by the young hostess. Among the children present were Zella and Mary Isherwood, Charlie Schmidt, Walters Hill, Avis Axline, Rachel Noble, Pauline Teagle and Traughber Roach. The children had a merry time, and enjoyed the excellent refreshments. They all got through the ordeal of dining without getting a speck on their faces or dresses with the exception of the little hostess, who made a mess of herself, and had to have a change of clothing. One of the incidents of the occasion was that Frankie Beeson, who was not invited, because it was not known that he was at home, came along, hauling Rachel Noble in his little wagon. He hauled her up to the gate, helped her out as gallantly as a Chesterfield, and then went home. We have heard of no sickness among the children as a result of the entertainment. They behaved themselves better than some crowds of grown people.

Wilkins and Miss Fannie Mills, both of this city. The parsonage was tastefully decorated with beautiful flowers, the room darkened and lamps lighted. In the north end of the room hung a large marriage bell, beneath which the handsome couple stood during the ceremony. There were but a few of the intimate friends of the family present, and most of them had only received their invitations a few hours before the event transpired. Yet some valuable presents were received, among which we noticed a cut glass table set of four pieces from Mr. and Mrs. C.G. Taliaferro; cut glass water set of four pieces from Mr. and Mrs. E. Youmans; handsome parlor lamp from Miss Celia Mills; a handsome rocking chair from Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Hall and a handsome rocking chair from Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Rouse. There is not a more popular couple in the city than Brough Wilkins and Miss Fannie Mills. Everybody knows and respects them. They have both lived here a long time and have made friends by their individual merits. The groom is a thorough-going business man, honest, industrious, steady and reliable. The bride is deservedly one of the most popular ladies in the county, pretty, amiable, and well equipped with all the accomplishments that adorn her sex, she speedily makes friends of all with whom she comes in contact. After the ceremony, the couple took the 2:30 train for a visit to relatives of the groom in Cloud county for a few days. They will make this city their future home, and all who know them will join the Index in wishing them long and useful lives, full of happiness and prosperity.

Died: At her home in Carthage, Mo., Sunday night, November 15th, 1891, of chronic diarrhea, after an illness of five weeks, Mary Fleming, wife of Edgar P. Caruthers, aged 35 years. We know her hosts of warm friends in this city and county will be shocked at this sudden announcement. Mrs. Caruthers was well known and well beloved in this city. She was born at Fredericktown, Mo., May 16th, 1856, was married February 9th, 1874, was the mother of five children, four of whom are living: Wirtie, aged 14; Albert aged 12; Robert aged 10, and Jessie aged 4 years. Mrs. Caruthers was no ordinary woman. Of fine physique, beautiful features, attractive appearance, with a mind well stored with information, with a heart full of kindly feeling for everybody, she attracted friends and to know her well was to love her well. Her death was a peaceful sinking to sleep, to awake beyond the Jordan, in the green fields of Eden. She had lived a quiet, gentle, peaceful life and sank to sleep without a fear. We sympathize with the stricken husband, who knows his irreparable loss and our heart is full of sorrow for the four precious children who are too young to fully appreciate the calamity that has befallen them. Sympathy at this hour cannot cheer the wounded heart, but it is the best we can do. God alone is able to give consolation. The Index has unusually tender regard for Mr. Caruthers and his interesting family. He came here six years ago, a stranger in a strange land, and he was like a brother to us. We often visited his home, sometimes at inopportune hours, and a cordial welcome was always extended. He was the editor of this paper four years before we came here. We bought a half interest in the office with him and for four years we worked side by side with never a harsh word nor a misunderstanding of any kind. Dear old friend, we grieve with you, but the sudden news has shocked us and words refuse to express our feelings.

Died: Suddenly, at noon on Sunday, November 15th, Luther White, aged about 75 years. Luther White is dead! This announcement will send a shock to all who know him who have not heard the sad news. He died last Sunday at 12 o'clock, at the school house two miles south of Isabel. He lived about a mile north of the school house and at 11 o'clock walked from his home to the school house to attend Sunday school. After Sunday school was over, a short prayer meeting was held, and Mr. White, as was his custom, led in a fervent prayer; then a hymn was started, he also leading in the singing. After singing one verse the audience waited for him to start the second, and as he did not do so, they looked toward him and saw that his head had fallen forward. His son, Lester, and one or two others hastened to him just in time to catch his lifeless body as it sank to the floor. The body was taken to his house, being followed by the entire audience, who were awe-stricken and filled with grief over the death of one whom they all loved. A few weeks ago his daughter, who lives in Missouri, came out and paid him a visit. She persuaded her father to sell of his stock, rent out the farm, and come to Missouri and spend the winter with her. He had agreed to do so, had sold the stock, had rented out the farm, and was to have started today on his visit. But no man knows what a day may bring forth. Today his body lies in the cold grave, while his family and hosts of friends are mourning his absence. Grand old Luther White. The world can ill afford to spare such men. He was a landmark in that section. His word settled all disputes. Nearly everybody knew him; all knew him by reputation, and all loved him. He was a Christian soldier and died with the harness on. He had just arisen from his knees, where he had poured out his soul in prayer for his neighbors, whom he loved, and, as he supposed, whom he was about to leave for a few months; he was in the very act of singing praises to his God when his spirit was caught up and borne away by the angels to the presence of that God whom he loved so well and whom he had served so long and so faithfully. What more could we say were we to write a dozen columns about him. He lived a Christian life, and by so living earned the right to die a Christian's death. No earthly honor can for a moment compare with this. We grieve for him as for any other friend, but we rejoice in the certain knowledge that he is now happier than he could be here, and that the glories in store for him are beyond the imaginations of the finite mind. Farewell, old friend. The world is better because of your having lived here. Would that the world could have witnessed your noble death. Like the shock that is fully ripe, you have been gathered in and henceforth there is a crown for thee.

Died: At Independence, Mo., on Sunday, November 22nd, 1891, Miss [Kittie?] O'Bryan, a sister of Judge T.L. O'Bryan of this city. The above news was received Monday at 1 o'clock, too late for Judge O'Bryan to catch the train and the funeral took place Tuesday. Another Christian woman gone home to her reward. Miss O'Bryan was known all over Missouri for her faithful work in the Baptist church. For several years past she had made the church work the main object of her life. Now she has laid down her warfare and is "Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep."

Died: At the residence of her son-in-law, O.V. Lytle, near this city, on Saturday, November 21, 1891, Mrs. Hester Shepler, aged 62 years, 11 months and 16 days. She was the widow of the late S.J. Shepler and leaves two sons and two daughters, all grown, and a host of friends to mourn her departure. Her sons are Font Shepler, of Washington and Frank Shepler of this city. The daughters are Mrs. Vernon Lytle, of this city, and Mrs. Bell of Illinois. Mrs. Bell reached here in time to attend the funeral, which occurred Monday afternoon, from the Presbyterian church. All of our citizens who could spare the time were there to show their respect to the family in this sad hour of bereavement.
