Mr. Keifer, a young friend, who was a brakeman on the same train, accompanied the remains which arrived here Tuesday night. The deceased was a young man of good habits and was highly regarded by all. He was a member of the Gentry Lodge Woodmen of the World. Funeral services were held in the Bloomfield church, conducted by Rev. Stranburg. Interment was made in the Bloomfield cemetery.

The subject of this notice, Charles D. Mitchell, was born in May 1881; was reared near Bloomfield, Ark. It was here that he spent his childhood days during which time he made many warm and lasting friends. Three years ago he bade goodby to loved ones and the happy scenes of where he spent his childhood days and went west. Fired with the ambition of true southern manhood, he met life's difficulties, overcame obstacles, secured a good and remunerative position which he held until the death angel said Charlie, it's enough. He was first stricken with measles, which was followed by pneumonia, to which he succumbed Jan. 24, 1908. During his illness he was nursed by a warm and noble-hearted young lady, his betrothed. Other friends also waited by his side until his young heart ceased to beat. Several beautiful, comforting and consoling letters written by the young lady, his betrothed, and others also, are now in the hands of his father and mother. W.A.L. Stranburg, Pastor Baptist Church.
