Obituary of Warren D. Bledsoe.

Warren D. Bledsoe was born November 20, 1878. Died, July 10, 1914, aged 35 years, seven months and 20 days.

He was a son of Willard and Susan Bledsoe, who live about three miles west of Forest City, in Holt county, Mo. Warren has lived all his life near Forest City.

He is the first of the seven sons to be called away, and the second of a family of 13 children, a sister having died six years ago. He leaves father, mother, six brothers and five sisters, a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn their loss from the withdrawal of one so kind and helpful from their midst. His brothers, Joseph and Charley, (at whose home he died) Samuel, Henry, Edward and William—all live near Forest City. The sisters, Mrs. Minnie St. Clair, of Forest City; Mrs. Elvie Hopper, of White Cloud, Kan.; Mrs. Nancy Elder, of Mound City, Mo.; Mrs. Elizabeth Walden, of St. Joseph, Mo.; Mrs. I.ovira Snider, of Liberty, Neb.

Warren Bledsoe was a model citizen, an obedient son—one who loved his home and could find no place like it. He united with the church at Walnut Grove, under the ministry of Evangelist Cottingham, of Kansas City, several years ago. His influence was always on the side of those things that make for the uplift of society, and the alleviation of the ills of life.

To scatter roses and not thorns for the reaping by and by, and to send a beam of sunshine through the gathering gloom, that comes over the brightest paths of life. How comforting it is to know he has only stepped so suddenly into a higher and grander life. Gone to that rest that remains to the people of God. And what a consolation to those aged parents as they look down on the chair now vacant in the home, to realize that he is not dead, but sleepeth, and to hear that voice saying, "Those That are Dead In Me Will I Bring With Me." To Him and the Word of His Grace we commend all the sorrowing ones. We fully sympathize with these friends in this sad and sudden bereavement, praying His blessing on them to comfort and sustain.

Elder W. H. Hardman, of Oregon, preached the funeral and officiated at the interment in the cemetery at Forest City, where he laid the sister to rest.

Side by side they sleep, no more to wake,
No more shall sorrow their slumbers break,
Peaceful sleep from which
None ever wake to weep.

W. H. H., V. D. M.
