The angel of death wJbicb had been hovering over Palmetto Karich, the beautiful home of Col. and Mrs. Frank M. Chapman, since Sunday evening, entered its portals at 5:45 o'clock on Thursday afternoon and claimed the spirit of it owner, Col. Frank M. Chapman. Col. Chapman was stricken with apoplexy on Sunday evening, remaining in an unconscious condition until Tuesday. That day he appeared to rally and was able to transact some business with his attorney.

Conley at tho Christian Church, of which he was a member, at JO o'clock this morning, to which all friends are invited. The funeral car with the remains will leave Covina at 11:30. interment taking place at the Hollywood cemetery. Col. Chapman was the senior ranking colonel on Gov.

There is but one thing to be said after all, and that is that Colonel Chapman was an American whose heart was tilled with a knowledge of his fellowmau. it la not for the Argus to detail virtues. It is better that we say (if him that wo loved him, that every person who came in contact with him loved him, and was the better for knowing such a man. We cannot estimate at this time how much we have lost by his death. Lot you, citi/.en of Covina, go buck in your history and formulate an obituary for this man. Think of his life here. We will let you judge him, you who should imt judge, you who owe so much. \V« know what, your judgment will be. It in honor, it ia love for the truth, and great regard for citizens who come to us and lend us as he did; gently to lead and never to censure. His mcnuuy is in your hands. There is no greater praise to be given him than to point to his life work. His presence hern drew the attention of ureat men to our town. His service to hi.s country and to his friends is ended. 'Let us thank tho Inscrutable Power that this innn has entered into his reward. Col. Chapman was a native of Illinois, born in Mncouib, MuDouough county, January 1, 1849. He attended the common schools and engaged in various occupations until ho answered the cull made by President Lincoln for soldiers. He enlisted in Co. C M One Hundred and Seventh Illinois Ic-fautry.

No man's life is lived iu vain; no man's life is without its triumphs, its achievements, but there arc things to be said about every man. Oftentimes a man grows into your- heart to such an extent that his faults are overshadowed, and oven the good things belonging to his life are HO near that they are not estimated according to their value.
