WE, THE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH WORSHIPPING AT WALCOTT , ARK. MOURN BECAUSE ONE OF OUR BELOVED MEN IS GONE FROM US.

AFTER EIGHT OR TEN HOURS OF SUFFERING , THE REV. C.A. STUART , OUR BELOVED PASTOR WAS CALLED TO HIS HOME IN HEAVEN. WE ARE OFTIMES MADE TO WONDER WHY THE GOOD LORD CALLED HIM FROM US JUST WHEN HE DID . BUT PERHAPS IT WAS DONE FOR GOOD , THAT WE MIGHT BE MORE SUBMISSIVE TO THE MASTER'S WILL . WE NEEDED HIM SO MUCH JUST NOW . THERE IS NOT A PART OF OUR CHURCH WORK THAT DID NOT RECEIVE HELP FROM HIS HANDS AND HE DID IT WITH SUCH CHEERFULNESS . HE HAS BEEN OUR FAITHFUL AND BELOVED PASTOR FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS , AND OUR CHURCH HAS PROSPERED UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP . WORDS FAIL TO EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION OF HIS LIFE SINCE HE HAS BEEN WITH US. OUR PRAYERS SHALL BE THAT OUR LIVES MAY BE MORE LIKE HIS.

WE , AS MEMBERS OF THE WALCOTT CHURCH , WANT TO SAY TO HIS BEREAVED WIFE AND FAMILY AND TO HIS AGED FATHER AND MOTHER , AND TO ALL HIS RELATIVES , THAT WE SYMPATHIZE WITH YOU DEEPLY IN THIS YOUR SAD HOUR OF BEREAVEMENT .

Paragould, July 23, - With his head, arms and legs torn from his body as it was hurled round and round the line shaft of a box factory.  John Warren who was to have been married next month to a Paragould young woman met a terrible though instant death yesterday.

Warren who was 45 years old was an oder for the National Box Factory in Brighton, a mile east of here and was engaged in his work when his clothing became entangled in the shafting. Instantly he was whirled from his feet and while his fellow workmen looked on powerless to help and before the machinery could be brought to a stop his body was completely dismembered and dropped to the floor lifeless. Warren was engaged to be married in August to a young woman of this city. He came here from Harrisburg, Ky. but has relatives in Paragould.

Paragould, Mar 26- James Bradsheer, a prominent farmer residing eight miles north of Paragould was found along the roadside, near his home this morning cold in death with a gaping gun shot wound through his left breast, his heart having been torn into fragments by the close explosion of the weapon. From indications as could best be established by witnesses and the coroner's jury it was a case of suicide. Bradsheer left his home this morning early and went to a neighbor's house where he borrowed a double-barrel shot gun presemably for the purpose of going on a hunt. A few hours later his lifeless body was found as above described. He lived in this county fifteen years and aside from some troubles that may have borne upon his mind there is no cause that can be tributed for the tragical act of this morning.

Greene County Farmer Killed By Lightning While Plowing in Field

The Paragould Soliphone yesterday contained the following account of the death of a citizens of Greene County. Word was received here yesterday to the effect that Pleas Thompson, one of the most prominent farmers in the O'Kean neighborhood, was struck by lightening and instantly killed Friday afternoon about 6 o'clock. The particulars of the tragedy as related by a neighbor who was in town yesterday were that Mr. Thompson was in his field at work when a thunder storm and shower came up. He sought shelter under a tree and during the progress of the storm lightening struck the tree scalping it from the top to a point opposite Thompson's head. Here it left the tree and struck Thompson's head going down the length of his body and entering the ground by the side of his right foot. No one witnessed the killing but the marks on the tree and on the body showed the course the lightening took. His family knew nothing of his death until 9 o'clock that night. When the usual time came for him to return from the field his family began to get uneasy. Search was made for him and at 9 o'clock his body was found beneath the tree.

He was a middle aged man and leaves a wife and several children. He was one of the best farmers in the O'kean settlement and his tragic death is much deployed.
