To Improve and Elevate the Character of Man
In 17th century England, it was odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and of pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind. Those who belonged to such an organization were called "Odd Fellows". Odd Fellows are also known as "The Three Link Fraternity" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth

PROMINENT CITIZEN PASSES AWAY TODAY

--from Thursday's Daily

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~PROCLAMATION~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hereby request that all business houses in Conway close tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock, remain closed during the funeral services for the late C.C. (Lum) Thomasson, and that all who can, attend such services and
his burial on Saturday. The appeal of the destitute and distressed was always heard and answered by him and for more than twenty years he has been a great factor in rendering aid to the needy and unfortunate, and his place
will be hard to fill.

W.H. DUNCAN, Mayor
Conway, Ark., Sept. 5, 1912

C.C. Thomasson died at his residence on Caldwell Street at 4:45 o'clock this morning after a lingering illness of several months. His death was not unexpected as he has been in poor health for quite a while. Mr. Thomasson
was a pioneer citizen fo this city, having lived here since about 1885. He came to Arkansas from Independence, Mississippi, where he was born March 29, 1854. He is survived by his wife, a son who lives in Coldwater, Miss., one brother, Claud of Mobile, Ala., and one sister, Mrs. Mollie Wilkerson of Senatobia, Miss., all of whom are unable to attend the funeral services on account of sickness in their families.

Mr. Thomasson was a member of the W.O.W. and Odd Fellows Lodges of this city.

The funeral will be held at the Carter Cemetery ten miles east of Conway Saturday morning. The procession will leave this city at 7 a.m., accompanied by the Odd Fellows and Woodmen.
