Life's battle has been fought. One by one the heroic veterans, who have written an imperishable epitaph on the scroll of fame, stand in the presence of the grim Reaper and answer the final roll call.

H. P. Wells, a resident of Shreveport, died last Friday, aged 74 years. He served with distinction during the war. Lawyer, legislator, orator and above all else honest, and upright he has gone to his final rest honored and beloved.
