The Tipton Conservative August 3, 1898
DIED. AULDRIDGE

Charlie Forest Auldridge was born on York Prairie, Cedar county, Iowa, Nov. 8, 1879, and died July 25, 1898, at the home where he was born, aged 18 years, 8 months and 17 days.

He had been a great sufferer for about two years, but bore his sufferings patiently, putting his trust in God. He was dedicated to the Lord in baptism by the writer, a former pastor, when about two years of age.

At the age of thirteen he professed conversion and united with the Methodist Episcopal church during the pastorate of Rev. W. R. Dwyer, from which time he endeavored to lead a faithful Christian life, but during his illness he was drawn nearer to God, and about two weeks before his death he was led into an especially bright and blessed Christian experience. He appreciated his church privileges and spoke of their worth when he could no longer attend the services of the sanctuary, and expressed a desire that his young friends should not forget the Lord's house.

He was greatly pleased with the visits of his young friends, who kept his room fragrant with flowers during his long illness, and also the visits of his faithful Sunday School teacher, Mr. S. A. Chapman, whom he held in high esteem. He manifested a deep interest in the welfare of the home and readily yielded obedience to his parents.

The parents, three sisters and three brothers, with many friends, mourn his departure.

The funeral services were held at York Prairie church, conducted by Rev. J. T. Spry, of Marion, Iowa. A large concourse of relatives and friends followed the remains to the place of burial in the York Prairie cemetery, J. T. S.

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many friends who so kindly assisted during our recent bereavement. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Auldridge and Family.
