BIDDLE CHILD IS DEAD
Child was Reported to Have Had Infantile Paralysis. Lela, the three year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Monroe Biddle, of the Ekin community, died Saturday, night after an illness of several months. It was reported that the child was afflicted with infantile paralysis and that a small son of the family was also afflicted. The cases attracted a great deal of attention. Lee Biddle, a brother of Monroe, was in town Saturday and he told a Tribune reporter that it was a mistake concerning the girl, she not being afflicted with paralysis, but had been sick for a year, she suffering from a complication of diseases. He also said there was thought to be an improvement in her condition. The boy has paralysis and he also was reported to be better. The burial of the little girl took place today, the funeral services being conducted at the late home at 10 o'clock Rev. Wimer of Kempton being the officiating minister. Burial at the East Union cemetery.

Police Get Man Responsible for the Death of Former Tipton Man.
The police at Hammond have arresteed Adolph Doewang, one of the prominent young men of Hammond, on the charge of being responsible for the death of Leslie E. Doan, son of the late Dr. Doan, of the New Lancaster community, and a former resident of Tipton county. Doan, it will be recalled, was killed a few nights ago when he was hit by a machine which was being driven at a high rate, of speed, the driver not stopping after the accident. Doan was employed on the Hammond street railway, and was doing some work in the street when he met his death.
Doewang denies the charge, but admits that his machine sideswiped an object in the streets. The police found a part of the windshield in the street following the accident, and this was found to belong to the machine of the accused man. Doewang, witnesses say, was running at a speed of fifty miles an hour when Doan was run down.

In Memory of Henry L. and Nancy J. Kesling
Henry L. Kesling was born in Preble county, Ohio, in 1827. He died at Ironton, Iron county, Mo., in September 1901. At an early age he showed a tendancy toward literary pursuits. He taught school; went to the famous college at Oxford, Butler county, Ohio, then the greatest college west of the Allegheny Mountains, and now known as the Miami University; from which college he was graduated in June 1854. On the fourth day of the following July he was married to Nancy J. Kesling, who was born in Warren county, Ohio, in December 1835, and died at Ironton, Iron county, Mo., March 11, 1903. At the time of the marriage just mentioned both Mr. and Mrs. Kesling were residents of Preble county, Ohio.
The first few years of the married life of Mr. and Mrs. Kesling were spent at Muncie, Delaware county, Indiana, where Mr. Kesling was the principal of a Normal College. At the close of his work there they removed to Tipton, Tipton county, Indiana, and from there back to Preble county, where he studied law, and for a time was the editor and proprietor of the Eaton Democrat. In 1867 Mr. Kesling, with his wife and two children, removed to their farm in Iron county, Mo., near Ironton. The next move was to Ironton, where they remained until their death.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Kesling were raised by Christian parents. After coming to Missouri they united with the Southern Methodist Church, under the pastorage of Father Berryman. They had hope and faith and confidence in the meditation of our Saviour. As neighbors they were kind and obliging, always ready to lend a helping hand; as husband and wife, kind and true and obliging; as parents, indulgent and helpful to the fullest meaning of those words; their children loved and respected them. They leave one son, Marcus T. Kesling, two daughters, Mrs. Belle Patton and Mrs. Hattie Block, five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Mr. Kesling leaves one sister; his wife, three brothers and four sisters, together with a number of neighbors and friends to mourn their loss.
