Musgrove was Editor and Business Manager. After being with the Index for six years, Mr. Musgrove sold his interest to Leon E. Beals in May 1892. In August 1893, C.C. Hudson took over as Editor. By April of 1894,Painter and Herr had assumed control of the Index. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel continues through April 24, 1895. 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.

Died: The death of Mrs. Mary Mills, wife of Sheriff Mills, occurred at their home in this city last Thursday morning [Jan 11th]. Mrs. Mills had been indisposed for some time, but was not thought serious until a week before her death. During the last twelve hours of her life, Dr. Cloud of Kiowa was in close consultation with Dr. Gould but all that medical skill could do would not renew the vigor of life. A severe case of pneumonia was the cause of death. Mrs. Mills leaves a husband and two children, one two years and the other a small babe, only four months old. In this, his dark hour of bereavement, the grief stricken husband and orphan children have the undivided sympathy of the community. It is now within the power for those who never experienced a like ordeal to estimate this loss and no consolation that a generous and sympathetic people can bestow can ever replace the sunlight of the home. But Death is no respecter of persons and it is the road we are all doomed to travel. Mrs. Mills was a woman with whom an acquaintance was friendship and was highly respected by all. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Havelin and at the time of her death was 25 years, 4 months and 24 days of age. The funeral services took place at the Baptist chapel last Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Cain, assisted by Rev. Engle, officiating, after which the remains were quietly laid to rest in the cemetery where the cruel pangs of pain and sorrow cannot enter. [See Jan 6, 1892 for marriage and May 31, 1893 for birth of baby.]

Miss Millie Hart is a sister to Mrs. Frank Read of this city, and is favorably known to our young fraternity, having attended school in the city several terms. Miss Minnie Wyer is the accomplished daughter of our county commissioner from the Second District, John Wyer, and has a large circle of friends in Nippewalla township. The Index extends congratulations to these estimable young people and we hope that their lives may be crowned with abundant happiness and prosperity.

Died: Kiowa Journal - At 8:45 Monday afternoon, January 21, 1895, Lucinda, wife of J.M. Langley, aged 67 years, 1 month and 16 days. Mrs. Langley was born in Christian county, Illinois, December 5, 1827. She was the daughter of George and Jennie VanDeveer. At the early age of 15, she united with the Christian church. On November 3, 1853, she was married to J.M. Langley. In 1858, she and her husband moved to Kansas, locating at Spring Hill, Johnson county, where they lived until 1886, when they moved to Kiowa. She was the mother of four children, two of whom survive her, Mrs. Bedwell of this city and F.C. Langley of Alva, O.T. Her sickness and suffering commenced in the spring of 1865 [Note: might be 1885], which took a more serious turn last July, confining her to the bed. Mrs. Langley was a Christian and as such she died, never losing faith in her Saviour. Through Him she bore her burden of suffering with patience and endurance. Gone - from the land of the dying to the home of the living. We who are left can hardly realize that ³life is death and death is life.² The funeral was held yesterday at 11 o'clock at the Congregational church, Rev. E.E. Flint officiating.

How he can possibly stay there under these extraordinary circumstances is just a little bit beyond our conjecture. And also Feb 20, @ pg 3, col 3: Coldwater Star - Allen E. Herr, the bright, young editor of the Barber County Index, is the father of an 8 pound son that arrived at his home last week during his pap's absence at Topeka, acting as Senator Landis'private secretary.

Mr. Page is a railroad conductor and their future home will be Tacoma. Miss Miller has many friends in this city.

Married: It is perhaps a little out of the ordinary to give an account of a marriage in this part of the vale before it occurs, but in this instance we find it impossible to restrain ourselves. It may be surprising but nevertheless true: our esteemed fellow citizen, Guy Sparks, will take unto himself a companion in life in the person of Miss Myrtle Huffaker. The marriage will take place this evening at the residence of the bride's parents near Sharon. Rev. Hopwood is the man chosen to send the young couple on their way rejoicing. The groom is known by everybody in the community as a gentleman of much worth and high social standing and has always been recognized as one of the mainstays of the young fraternity. If our judgment is worth anything, Mr. Sparks is to be envied for his choice. The bride is one of the most lovable and popular young ladies of the county, having resided in the Sharon vicinity ever since her childhood. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Huffaker and counts her friends by the score. She is a highly accomplished young lady and will be a credit to the Sparks household. The wedding will be a quiet affair, only relatives and close friends will be present. We have not learned the names of best man and bridesmaid and are therefore unable to give them. The young couple will make no extensive wedding tour. They will reside on the Sparks farm east of town for the present and will manage the same the coming year. The Index prides itself in having the opportunity of extending congratulations to this estimable young couple and hope that the richest blessings may be bestowed upon them during their future life.

Died: Mattie M. Stockstill died at her home near Sharon, Monday, February 25th, of consumption. She was twenty-two years, 2 months and 8 days of age at the time of her death. While her death was not unexpected, it is yet a painful task to announce the demise of the bright light of this excellent family. She was a young lady of more than ordinary talent and ability and was befriended and widely known in this and other parts of the county. Her mother died a few years ago and Mattie was called upon to manage the household which position she filled admirably and faithfully until ³He who doeth all things well² called her to a better land. The bereaved family have the undivided sympathy of the community in their sad affliction and untimely loss. The funeral services take place at Sharon today at 11 o'clock.

Died: The death of the 4 months old child of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Mathes, who were on their way to the Strip from Pratt county, is doubly sad. The child is supposed to have been smothered or strangled to death, it is difficult to ascertain which. It was wrapped in a blanket and laid in the back part of the wagon while sleeping and no further notice was taken of it until the family camped in the grove south of town when the parents found their babe dead. The other children, 4 in number, had also been in the back part of the wagon and may accidentally [have] thrown some blankets over it closing out the air. It is one of those sad mishaps which all are sorry to hear of but which sometimes visit the most careful. Words cannot express the grief of the poor mother when she found her babe lifeless that but an hour previous was a heart and healthy child. The shock was very hard on her and she is now lying very ill at the residence of Mrs. Coon in the south part of the city. Dr. Gould and kind neighbors are giving every assistance possible. Mr. and Mrs. Mathes are poor people and are entirely unacquainted in the city, having arrived here Monday evening about five o'clock when the sad accident happened and being without means a subscription was immediately started to defray funeral expenses and the remains of the little one were interred in Highland cemetery yesterday afternoon. Rev. Cain spoke a few words of condolence to the grief stricken family at the residence.

Died: The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. John McDaniel died yesterday morning of la grippe. It had been sick only a short time and death was a surprise to the parents.

Died: The adage, that death is no respecter of persons, was again verified in this city during the past week. Mrs. Thos. Warwick and infant child died at their home in the northwest part of town - the child died last Wednesday and the mother Sunday evening. The child was only twenty-four hours old at the time of its death. Mrs. Warwick was quite well from and after the birth of the child and her condition was not considered fatal at all until a short time before death, but a change was taken for the worse and at 7 o'clock Sunday evening, the light of life faded away. The funeral took place from the family residence, Monday afternoon at 2:30 p.m., Arch Deacon Brady of the Episcopal church officiating, and the remains interred in Highland cemetery. The deceased was 35 years, 3 months and 15 days of age and leaves 3 small boys and a husband to mourn her loss. Mr. and Mrs. Warwick resided in this county for the past eight years and were citizens of the highest worth and this untimely death is mourned by a host of kind friends. The motherless children and bereaved husband have the heartfelt sympathy of all.

Mr. Adams was a young man 27 years of age, of excellent habits and of the highest worth. He was at the time of his death Noble Grand of Lodge 262, I.O.O.F., and was an esteemed and respected member of the brotherhood. He was buried on Sunday at Lake City. Rev. C.W. Owens held a prayer service at the residence of W.S. Clements. The funeral services will take place some time next June. In this death, Barber county loses another useful citizen.

Married: At the office of the probate judge in this city by Rev. R.B. Engle yesterday, Jacob Schmidt and Miss Dina Steir, both of Hardtner. It was the writer's privilege to be in attendance at the ceremony and witness the ups and downs in the performance of a marriage ceremony, especially where the parties are of different nationalities. The dilemma of the occasion was soon suspended by summoning in Leon Beals and Gus. Schmidt as interpreters (Gus. says that he is not related to the groom although he has the same last name) and the knot was as effectively tied as though the parties had been of English blood. All parties were cool and self-possessed during the ceremony except Judge Funk who in the middle of the performance discovered that the contracting parties had not joined hands. In the heat of his excitement and nervous temperament, he then and there interrupted the parson by calling his attention to the fact that the husband and wife to be had not clasped hands. Rev. Engle quieted the fears of the judge by informing him that that part of the program would come later on. In justice to the judge, we will say that he acted in good faith and only wanted to take precautionary steps to see that the marriage be legal. Anyone that contemplates the matrimonial venture had better do so while Judge Funk is in office as he will see that you will be so firmly tied to your companion that all the technicalities of law cannot dissever.

Died: ³Ida Landis at Rest² - The sad news of the death of Miss Ida Landis reached us last Wednesday morning, a half hour too late for publication in last week's issue - she died at 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon of last week, the cause of her death being quick consumption. She suffered the agony of the disease for almost thirteen long weeks, patiently and without a murmur until the final summons came. During all the time of her sickness, the anxious and devoted parents and kind relatives and friends did all that human power could to relieve and comfort her, but their efforts, together with those of the physicians, could avail no cure and this precious and useful light ceased to shine in the family circle. But a few months before her death, Miss Ida was a bright healthy young lady and no one would have thought that the end of her brilliant life was so near at hand, but death excepts no one and is something none can evade. The funeral services took place last Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the residence of her grandfather, conducted by Rev. W.A. Cain of this city, and the remains conveyed to the Newkirk cemetery, where the last sad rites were performed. Miss Landis was the oldest daughter of Senator and Mrs. Landis and the second to the oldest in the family. She was 18 years old at the time of death and most of her life was spent in this county. She resided in this city for something over two years and left an example with her associates and acquaintances that many could follow with pride. She was a young lady with an enviable character and disposition and her loving nature and winning ways has attracted the friendship of all she met. She was the flower of the household, an honor to herself, a source of pride to her parents and a kind and noble personage to her brothers and sisters. Her oldest brother, Irwin, is at present in the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., and when the sad news reaches him, which it has by t his time, the shock will fall upon him heavily. While he was in a measure prepared for the result, it will not lessen the sadness of the affair. The funeral was largely attended by people from all parts of the county and a large concourse of sympathizing friends followed the body to its final resting place. She was a devoted and consistent member of the Presbyterian church, holding her membership in the church of this city at the time of her death. If sympathy could replace the loss of this dear one to her parents, she would have long been replaced, but when death takes its course, no one can recall its victim. Miss Ida will continue to live in the memory of all who knew her and the world is better for her having lived in it.

Died: Mrs. Fritz, wife of Orlando Fritz, died at her home near Sexton, on the morning of April 6th, 1895. She had been an acute sufferer of blood poison for several weeks and was indeed a subject of pity. Dr. Kociell attended her during sickness but her recovery was beyond question. Mrs. Fritz was born in Germany and located in the state of Indiana in 1883 and married to Mr. Fritz the succeeding year. In the fall of 1884, Mr. and Mrs. Fritz moved to their present home in this county where they have since resided. The deceased was 27 years and 22 days of age and leaves five small children, four girls and one boy, and a husband to mourn her loss. To the bereaved husband and motherless children is extended the heartfelt sympathy of the community.

Married: Time, twelve o'clock noon, on Wednesday, April 17th, 1895; place, Mr. W.W. Cook's residence; event, the marriage of Miss Millie Carmichael to Mr. J. Robinson of Quenemo, Kas. Skilled fingers touched the keys of the piano and to the music of the wedding march, the bride and groom entered the room in which the members of the family had gathered. They took positions under a bell of evergreen, daintily sprayed with spring's early bridal wreath. The impressive ceremony performed by Rev. R.B. Engle was short. Congratulations most sincere were soon spoken. Ten sat down to enjoy dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Robinson. Flowers with which friends had remembered the bride added their fragrance and beauty to the happiness of the newly wedded couple and to the pleasure of the company. In an hour and a half from the time of ceremony, the east-bound train carried Mr. and Mrs. Robinson away and on toward their new home in Quenemo, Ks. It was a pleasant home wedding. Signed: M.T.
