It is with regret we chronicle her death in this issue. On the trip out here Mrs. WARFIELD fell out of her berth in the cars and injured her head. Soon after her arrival she was taken with inflammatory rheumatism, the result of her injury and the fatigue of her overland journey. No serious results were apprehended, but on Sunday morning the disease from which she was suffering attacked her heart and death resulted before medical aid could be procured for her.
[from Grangeville column] -- Death has again visited the community. On Friday, the 27th inst., Frank RUSSEM died at the home of friends in Lemoore, after an illness of a few days. He was but 21 years of age and gave promise of a useful life. He had many friends who will sincerely mourn his loss. He was a brother-in-law of J.N. HOYT of this place [Grangeville] and until recently lived with him here. His remains were interred in the Grangeville cemetery on Sunday, where the last sad rites were performed and fitting tributes of respect paid to the remains of him, who but a short time ago appeared in the full vigor of health among the comrades who were called upon to lay him away and scatter flowers over his tomb.
[from Armona column]- -- The remains of Frank RUSSEM, who died of pneumonia at his sister's home in Lemoore on Nov. 27th were interred in the Armona cemetery on Sunday at 2 o'clock. There was singing by the Grangeville choir and music by the Lemoore and Grangeville bands, of which deceased was a member.
[from Lemoore column] -- The many friends of Mr.&Mrs. D.S. FISH again extend their sympathy in their sad bereavement. Young Frank RUSSEM was known by all as a true friend, a genial schoolmate and a kind and loving brother.
[also from Lemoore column] -- On Saturday at the Baptist church Rev. CRIST of Grangeville preached the funeral services of Frank RUSSEM, brother of Mrs. D.S. FISH. Deceased was only sick a few weeks, but pneumonia that dread disease, conquered in spite of tender care and patient nursing, and on Friday this promising young man, not yet 21 years old, was called to the higher life.
A SILVER WEDDING -- On Friday evening, Nov. 27th, a number of ladies and gentlemen from Hanford drove to the residence of Mr.&Mrs. LOFLAND for the purpose of celebrating the silver wedding of that worthy couple. A more surprised lady could not well be found than was Mrs. L., when, without a word of warning, the merry company drove up to her door. All due preparations had been made for the wedding. The bridal wreath, composed of several choice varieties of chrysanthemums, was "a thing of beauty and a joy forever," whilst the large calla lily which crowned the large buttonhole bouquet worn by the groom did justice to the exquisite taste of the donor. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. MORRISON. He informed the happy couple that, as the former knot had been tied for so many years, their friends feared that it might have become loosened, and they deemed it best to have him tie a double knot. This he proceeded to do in a brief but humorous manner. After receiving!
ongratulations of those present, Mr.&Mrs. LOFLAND were made the recipients of a few tokens of remembrances. Supper having been served and a good social hour enjoyed by all, the party started for home.
