STOUT, Louis Mauker - More than 500 people were present at the funeral of L.M. Stout at Sulphur Springs Monday afternoon. The services were held in the big tabernacle in the park. Not only were the business houses in that city closed out of deep respect for their fellow townsman and friend, but all the banks in Benton county closed that afternoon and most of their officers were present at the funeral. Great masses of flowers lined the speaker's platform, the gift of many friends far and near. Rev. W.M. Runyan, pastor of the Community church in Sulphur Springs in his address paid a flowing tribute to the life and character of the man whose candle was snuffed out so quickly and so tragically. Following the services, the funeral cortege wended its way to the Butler creek cemetery where the remains were laid to rest and the newly-made grave was banked high with flowers he loved so well. Louis Mauker Stout was born in Farmington, Ill. Dec. 24, 1865 and died in the Freeman hospital in Joplin, Mo. Friday, June 12, 1925 from bullet wounds inflicted by Oklahoma outlaws who had robbed the Bank of Sulphur Springs the previous day. When a child his parents moved to Indianapolis, Ind. where they lived until he was 15 years of age. Then the family moved to Sedan, Kansas where he remained until nineteen. Ill health compelled him to go to Colorado where he spent two years. Regaining his health he joined his parents in Sulphur Springs who had previously moved to this place. A little later he left home to become a mail carrier in Kansas City, Kansas. Here he met and married Mary B. Holmes. To this union two daughters were born, one dying in infancy, and Henry Stout who now resides in Los Angeles and was unable to attend the funeral. Continued ill health compelled Mr. Stout to return to Sulphur Springs. In 1897 his engineering work took him to Osborn, Mo. where he met Bessie Fay McGuire and they were married in Pineville, Mo. on November 8th, 1898. They took up their residence in Sulphur Springs and lived here continuously except for six years spent in Bristow, Okla. Four children were born to them, Richard David Stout and Louis Hibler Stout, of the home, and Mrs. Louise Hilboldt of Lanagan, Mo. and Mrs. Nona Lester of Gravette. Besides the wife and children he is also survived by two brothers, David E. Stout of Neosho and Dick Stout of Perma, Mon.; also by two sisters, Mrs. Clara V. Heckman of Sulphur Springs and Mrs. Etta Spahr of Pearson, Iowa.
