Medicine Lodge Cresset: Jan-Jun 1898

The Medicine Lodge Cresset (meaning "bright light") was a weekly newspaper, published in Medicine Lodge beginning early in 1879. L.M. Axline was publisher at the time this particular reel begins; Otis Lorton took over publication in February 1899. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel begins Friday, January 7, 1898 and continues through Friday, February 22, 1901. 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)

A sumptuous dinner was served at five o'clock, after which the guests retired to the parlor and engaged in music and dancing until ten-thirty.

Died: Little James, the 12-year old son of Henderson Garten and wife, died at the residence of J.D. Montgomery, in this city on Saturday night last, [Feb] 12th, from accidental scalding, and was buried in the city cemetery on Sunday. The Gartens live several miles west of this city on a farm, and it seems that on Saturday last, while Mrs. Garten and two children were alone, Mrs. G. made preparations for scrubbing and had a tub of hot water setting on the floor. The little boy, in attempting to climb upon a barrel, fell into the water. The mother hitched a horse to a buggy and brought the little sufferer to Dr. Moore, this city, as soon as possible, but medical skill could not save the life.

Funk and family, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stevens, Mr. and Mrs. Geo Boden, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Wilson, Mrs. A.C. Lauby, Mrs. J.G. Taliaferro, Miss Whittet, Jesse Taliaferro and Laura Smart.

At 10:30 o'clock oysters, cake, coffee and pickles were served; the young folks enjoyed themselves by acting as waiters. At a late hour the guests departed wishing the hostess many more bright and happy birthdays. Signed: L. Smart.

Died: Thirza Kenison was born in Kennebec County, Maine, April 15, 1803, and died at the home of her son, Dr. J.K. Osborne, in Medicine Lodge, Kansas, February 18, 1898, aged 94 years, 10 months and 3 days. She emigrated with her parents to Ohio in 1846 and located in Morgan county. She was married in 1818 to Ezra Osborne. They lived together on the home farm till her husband's death in 1871. Eight children were born to them, six of whom, three sons and three of her five daughters still survive her. Two of her sons, C.W. and Dr. J.K. Osborne, are residents of this county. She was converted and joined the Christian church forty-two years ago and from that time lived in the conscious enjoyment of salvation. For a number of years she had been an invalid, and her suffering at times was great. Those most intimately associated with her are comforted by the Christian fortitude with which she bore her pain. She delighted to talk of her hope for the future and often would break out singing one of the old time hymns. Truly her afflictions were but the purifier of gold and worked for her "a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." It is rare to meet with one so old as she. To the very last moment, she was conscious and retained all her powers of mind, and life was a promise. [Memorial poem follows.]

Died: T.L. Lindley recently received a letter from Ralph Allen, which conveyed the sad information that Scott L. Allen, father of Ralph, had died at his home in Ohio, on Friday, April 8th, 1898, at 3:20 in the morning. Scott L. Allen lived in this city for a number of years; he was deputy clerk of the district court during Frank Holmes' administration, and was engaged in various business enterprises here, the last being the P.O. book and news stand and boot and shoe business, under the firm name of Allen & Shaw - G.W. Shaw being his partner. Some three years ago, Mr. Allen, with his family, returned to Ohio, and shortly after going there his health began failing. We understand his trouble was consumption. He leaves a wife and five children. Scott L. Allen had a host of friends in this county who will be pained to hear of his death. He was about 45 years of age.

Died: At his farm, five miles west of this city, on Tuesday morning, April 19th, at 6:15, Sylvester Taber, of heart disease and cancer of the stomach. Sylvester Taber was born in Pennsylvania Feb. 25th, 1833. When quite young he accompanied his parents to Indiana. In LaPorte county, Ind., April 26th, 1857, he married Miss Mary Wilson. To this union five children were born - and four survive the father. Sylvester Taber and family came to Barber county in 1885 from LaPorte county, Indiana. He made friends of all he met and was universally respected for his upright life and Christian bearing. He leaves a widow and four children. The children are Misses Mary E. and Elva L.; Mrs. Anna M. Warner, of Bridgeport, Conn., and Wm. W. The funeral occurred from the residence on the farm at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Irwin, of the M.E. church preached the sermon. The remains were buried in Highland cemetery, this city. The sorrowing family have the sympathy of all. S. Taber was a good man, and his death not only takes from the family a kind husband and a loving father, but from the community a good citizen and sterling gentleman.

Died: At the home of E.H. Williams in this city, Frank. P. Ibbotson, aged 22 years, 6 months, and 27 days. The deceased was a resident of Illinois at the time of his death, and up to last fall had never been dangerously ill. At that time, as his health began to fail, he took a trip to Missouri in a wagon, hoping to recuperate, but without any good results. As the winter passed he became worse, and, about six weeks ago, he came with his brother to this place, thinking that the dry climate of Kansas might help him. It was too late, however, as the dread disease, consumption, had made such inroads that it could not be checked. The deceased was united with the Christian church at Parkersburg, Ill., in June, 1895, and the consciousness of having fought the good fight and kept the faith robbed death of its sting and the grave of its victory. The friends who knew him during his short stay here were touched by the cheerful patience with which he bore his great suffering. The brother who stood so faithfully by him during his sickness has the sincere sympathy of all, as he returns sad hearted to his home in Illinois.

Died: At his home near Anthony in Harper county, on Saturday, April 30, 1898, David R. Thompson, father of Mrs. Samuel Stewart. Deceased was 73 years, 10 months and 24 days old.

Died: "John Higgins Dead. Dies Suddenly of Heart Disease While Acting as Funeral Director at an Interment in Highland Cemetery" - Uncle John Higgins has crossed the great divide into that mysterious beyond which he believed was the place where every man must finally stand face to face with his God and be judged according to the deeds done in the body. Uncle John Higgins was a strong rugged man, given to plain speech, yet, withal, some of the impulsiveness incident to the Irish blood that flowed in his veins. While not voluble, he possessed that trait which commanded respect from the grown and love from the children. His death was sudden and almost tragic in its character. While acting as director of the funeral of John Kearsing, on Saturday, May 28th, 1898, at about 11:30 o'clock, he was stricken with acute neuralgia of the heart, and fell dead. The death occurred at Highland Cemetery. The body of John Kearsing had just been lowered into the grave and the cemetery sexton was preparing to fill the grave, when Uncle John was seen to sink to the ground. He probably died as he fell, as he gave only a couple of gasps - the air leaving his lungs - after reaching the ground. His death, while a shock to everybody on account of its suddenness, was not entirely a surprise to those who knew him best. About two years ago he had a severe attack of heart disease, and since that time has had slight attacks. The funeral occurred from the Higgins residence on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 o'clock. Rev. J.F. Irwin, of the M.E. church, of which Mr. Higgins was a member, preached the funeral sermon. The I.O.O.F., A.O.U.W. and K.&L. Of S., of this city, to which orders Mr. Higgins belonged, attended in a body. The attendance of citizens was very large, making the funeral one of the largest in point of attendance ever held in this city. John Higgins was born at Rondout, N.Y., Oct. 15, 1842; died, Medicine Lodge, Kan., May 28th, 1898. When a young man he removed to Illinois, and at Lebanon, in that state, was united in marriage to Mary J. Morris on May 6th, 1861. On Aug. 12th, 1862, he enlisted in the 117th Illinois Infantry - Company I - and served for three years. In 1880, he came with his family to this city, and for a time conducted a blacksmith shop in connection with his brother-in-law, Dan Morris. Selling his interest in the shop to his partner, he engaged in the hotel business for awhile and then in the furniture and undertaking business, which he conducted successfully up to the time of his death. He united with the M.E. church at Lebanon, Ill., soon after returning from the army, and remained an earnest member the balance of his life. He leaves a widow and one daughter - Mrs. Ambrose Allen - who will miss him every hour. His little grandchildren, who loved him, and asked no greater favor than to be with him, will think the days not so full of sunshine now that grandpa is gone. John Higgins was a careful, frugal man. He leaves his family well provided for, and everything about his business well in hand. His life was insured for $2,000 in the A.O.U.W. and $1,000 in the K. and L. of S. He was strict in business and frank and honorable. He was a popular man and possessed of much public spiritedness, and was connected with our city government a number of different years. Uncle John Higgins is gone. Would that we could pen a eulogy fitting to him, but he leaves for himself a monument in the respect to be found in the hearts of those who knew him best, in honor of a life well lived.

Married: At the residence of the bride's mother, in Lincoln, Nebr., on Wednesday, June 22nd, 1898, Charles Q. Chandler was united in marriage to Miss Olive Thayer, at 9:00 o'clock a.m. Charles Q. Chandler, president of the Citizens State Bank, of this city, and interested in a number of financial institutions in the west, is too well known to need any words from us. He is a young man of means, with good habits and is inclined to home life, and consequently, should make a good husband. Miss Thayer, the bride, is a daughter of Mrs. E.J. Thayer. She resided near this city with her parents and sisters for about a year, up to the death of her father, about three years ago. She is a young lady of nice appearance who has won many friends by her even disposition and kindly manner. The Cresset takes pleasure in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Chandler long life, happiness and success. The bride and groom will attend the exposition at Omaha and we are unable to say when they will arrive here, their home, for the immediate future, at least.
