His Sun Went Down at Noon.

Arland A Pace, son of Mr. and Mrs. M.A. Pace was born in Bentonville, Ark., April 6, 1872, died at Dodd City, Ark., March 28th, 1899, aged 26 years, 11 month, and 24 days. He was married to Miss Emma Cooper, June 16th, 1896, with whom he was most happily until the day of his death. This union was blessed and deepened with one sweet child, little Cicil May aged one year, than whom no sweeter child ever came to earth to bless a home.

Arland fell a victim to desease and death while away from family and friends, and this fact makes the stroke fall heavier on his heart broken wife and mother.

Arland possessed all the essential qualifications necessary in the make up of a true citizen and helpful neighbor. He was a sprightly and popular young man, an affectionate and dutiful son, a kind and indulgent husband, and was tenderly loved by those who knew him best.

Arland was a young man of beautiful character, clean of hands, and modest and retiring to a fault. As a (illegable) man therefore he exhibited splendid ability and exemplified the strictest integrity. As a citizen he was public spirited and earnest in spite of his native modesty, which was a marked and admirable distinction of his noble young life.

Arland Pace was a model boy, whatever other boys did or said or were, Arland Pace was always pure in speech, pure in life, and strongly pronounced in purpose and character.

Thus ends a life full of promise, in its morning dawn, his sun going down while it was yet day.

The funeral services took place at the family residence, after which the body was laid to rest in the Odd Fellows cemetery, Bentonville, Ark., under the auspices of the K. of P. lodge. The lodge, never did itself more honer and never appeared at a better advantage than on the day when the remains of Arland A. Pace were laid to rest.
