JOHN HENRY BLAKE DEAD He Was the First Register of Deeds of Johnson County. The Olathe friends and relatives of John Henry Blake of Kansas City I were greatly surprised and shocked Sunday morning to hear of his death the night before. He died at his home 711 west Forty-fifth street. xvansas uuy, mo. His trouble was acute indigestion' and he was only in bed three or four days. His body was brought to Olathe for burial Monday afternoon, accompanied by all of the family, excepting Fred. Several members of the Odd Fellows lodge, of which he was a prominent member, also came with the body. The funeral services were held at the Olathe Presbyterian church conducted by Rev. Mr. Buchanan. The funeral committee of the Odd Fellows lodge conducted the exercises at the grave. It was a most impressive ceremony, the finest of its kind ever seen here. The pall-bearers were Kansas City Odd Fellows. John Henry Blake was 79 years old having been born in North Carolina in 1831. He came to Missouri in 1839 and lived near Bolivar until 1857 when he came to Gum Springs, Kas., which is now called Shawnee. Mr. Blake was appointed recorder of deeds on September 7, 1857. He held this office and in 1858, after a hot election, the county seat was moved to Olathe. Later on Mr. Blake was elected county clerk, which office he held four years, and in 1868 he was elected to the office of county treasurer which he held two terms. After that he was bookkeeper for A. J. Clemmans for three years and then served some time as bookkeeper for Cusey, Walker & Co. Ab Hoge tells a funny joke on Mr. Biake. Thirty years ago he and Doc Cusey were clerking for. Mr. Clemmans and Mr. Blake was bookkeeper. Nearly everyone allowed their cows to graze on the commons or if they sent them to pasture the children herded . them slowly along the streets. Bob Young was pound master and he was fairly active in watching for stray cows because he got a dollar per head when they were caught. Bob had caught Mr. Cusey's cow one morning and Mr. Hoge and Mr. Blake had lots of fun teasing him about "pasturing his cow on the city." It wasn't a half hour until Leslie Hoge came in and asked her father for a dollar to get their cow out of the pound. Then Mr. Blake thought he had a great joke on both of them. A very few minutes later John Blake came in and said "Pa, I want a dollar to get our old cow out of the pound." Then the boys had the laugh on Mr. Blake. Mr. Blake moved to Kansas City with his family about eighteen years ago and the last few years has been bookkeeper for his son, Tom, who runs a plumbing and tinning establishment in Westport. Mr. Blake was an expert bookkeeper and took entire charge of the bookkeeping, banking, etc. Mr. Blake is survived by a widow, four sons and two daughters. The children are Charles Blake, who lives on a farm ten miles east of Olathe, Jno. L., Fred and Thomas Blake of Kansas City and Mrs. Ella Bryan and Mrs. George Burris, also of Kansas City. ' No old settlers picnic was complete unless Mr. and Mrs. Blake attended. They usually did so and sometimes the girls or some of the boys came with them. A year ago Mr. Blake spoke at the picnic. It is with much sorrow that The Mirror writes this article for Mr. Blake has always been a close friend to it and in fact to everyone in Olathe. Dyspepsia is our national ailment. Burdock Blood Bitters is the national cure for it. It strengthens stomach membrances, promotes flow of digestive juices, purifies the blood and builds you up. SURPRISE OX NEXT SHERIFF.

Mr. Ward has been- in the Pullman service for many years.) The moonlight falls the softest Out in Kansas; And summer days come oftest Out in Kansas; Friendships are the strongest, Love's light glows the longest, But wrong is always wrongest, Out in Kansas. Home fires burn the brightest, Out in Kansas; Lift's burdens bear the lightest Out in Kansas; Plain girls are the fewest, Maidens' eyes are bluest. And hearts are always truest Out in Kansas. The song birds sing the sweetest Out in Kansas; Thoroughbreds are fleetest Out in Kansas; The boys are the flyest, Ambitions are the highest; Success is ever nighest Out in Kansas. The blue laws are. the bluest, Out in Kansas; Blue noses are the fewest Out in Kansas; Stimulants are dearest, By no means the clearest, And some times the queerest, Out in Kansas. The sun-flowers bloom the brightest Out in Kansas; The breezes whisper lightest Out in Kansas; Orators are grandest, Officials are the blandest, And politics the d dest Out in Kansas. W. H.
