J.H. Beadleston Passes Away
John H. Beadleston died at his home in Lahoma Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock and was buried Tuesday afternoon in Sunny Side cemetery. The funeral was conducted from the M.E. church and the building was filled with friends from town and country who came to pay their last respects to a good citizen who had gone to his reward. Rev. C.G. Nelson, pastor of the Methodist church, officiated.
The services were to have been held at 2 o'clock but at noon a telephone message was received from Mrs. Beadleston's father and sister, John Ogle and Mrs. Ollie Newton, of Lenexia, Kas., that they had arrived at Enid too late to catch the train to Lahoma, but would drive out at once, and the services were delayed an hour waiting for them, but owing to the condition of the roads, they did not reach Lahoma until the conclusion of the services at the church. They were in time, however, to go to the cemetery and had a last look at the corpse.
Mr. Beadleston was stricken with paralysis a week before his death and never fully recovered consciousness, although at times, he seemed to know those about him and talked more or less rationally. He was entirely unconscious the last few days and death came to him painlessly, his breath merely coming slower and slower until finally it ceased altogether.
The deceased was 59 years old last April. The greater part of his life was spent in Illinois, from which state he came to Lahoma about seven years ago. He always took an active interest in the affairs of the town and his influence was always for law and order.
While not a member of any church, he was nevertheless a religious and a moral man and ready to meet his maker. He was a member of the Modern Woodsmen of America and always active in the work of the order. In his death the town loses a good citizen whom is sincerely mourned and whose memory will be cherished.
Mrs. Beadleston, who suffered a breakdown shortly after her husband was stricken, and whose life was despaired of for several days, had recovered sufficiently to be able to attend the funeral and it is now believed she will soon be restored to her usual health.
Her affliction recently has been indeed great for one so frail. About three months ago her mother died and two weeks ago a sister followed the mother to the grave, the news of which reached her after her husband was taken sick, and a few days ago her brother had his foot amputated as a result of blood poison, and now as a crowning sorrow, she is called upon to bury her husband.

Mrs. Beadleston and her brother, Albert Ogle, left Monday for Kansas City, where they will make their home in the future with their father, who is in poor health. Mrs. Beadleston is one of the oldest residents of Lahoma, coming here with her husband, the late J.H. Beadleston, shortly after the town was founded and has many friends who regret to see her leave.
