Day, father of the Methodist pastor, died Monday afternoon after a ong illness. The funeral was held at the Methodist church afc 8:00 o'clock esterday and the remains were taken ,o Cedar Rapids for burial at 6:30 o'clock. Thefollowlng affectionate testimonial to his life and character is written by his son: Died: At the home of his son, Rev. Frank E. Day, July 11, 1898, Edward L. 3ay, aged 60 years, seven months, and five days. These lineschroniclean event fraught with sorrow to the writer, who often H'omised to pen concerning his parent vhatever might appear in print regarding him. He will not be chided Jhen if he ventures to express his esti- nate of him who personified in practical realism his ideal of honest man- iood. Born in Postorin, Ohio, in 1837, Edvard L. Day came to Iowa with his ather's family in 1840, and settlement vas made in Linn county, on tho first arm entered between what is now Mt. Vernon and Lisbon. Hero ho spent his •outh, and in 1857 was married to Susan J. Culbcrtson, with whom in 1800 he noved to California, whore ho was engaged eight years in mining and lura- wr milling, a part of the time being pent in Idaho. In 1868 he returned to owa, and in 1869 removed from Mt. Vernon to Cedar Rapids, whore he iiade his homo for 20 years engaged as a locomotive engineer on the B., C. R. & N. Ry. In 188S ho removed to Sioux Jity, engaged in tho grocery business, rom which he retired in 1892 to seek lealth for his wife. ' In 1893, on the )ereavement of his son's home of companion and mother, he and his devoted vife forsook all personal interest to sc- jure to the parsonage homo tho com- orts that most nearly supplied the loss. Since then ho has made the parsonage we occupied his homo. Since coming o Algona his health hits failed, until an. 24, when a stroke of heart failure •omoved him from active service, and ince which time he has declined constantly, suffering greatly, until Monday, when he sank peacefully to rest n'tlio faith lie so devoutly held and o consistently professed. He had a arge acquaintance over the state, hay- ng served in various positionsof prominence in the Brotherhood of Loco- notive Engineers and Firemen, to which he ever grave his loyal support. In tho great Q strike of engineers, though himself opposed to strikes, he was a cheerful contributor to the support of the striking laborers. He became a Christian in 1877, and devoutly lived his religion in the rail- •oad calling, which then was sup- losed to present insurmountable obsta- ;les to such professions and efforts. 3e lived to see many engage in the same life through his influence. He •Missed through many dangers in rail- •oad disaster, and had the honorable record of never having left his post of duty, though oftentimes opportunity or escape by that method presented itself. He was modest and unassuming, ,'et withal, the possessor of the deep •ospect of all who over knew him slightly or intimately. In his last sickness he has painstakingly arranged all his affairs and at the end his loved ones knew his wishes as well as his own heart. His was not a thornless journey in life, but rather n tempest and trial his faith grew great. His creed was as wide in scope ind liberality as the love of God, and his toleration for others was in keep- ng with his creed. He has passed away the last of a dozen children whose parents departed in ripe old age, though he lived 20 years onger than any of his brothers or sis- tors. Ho did not over-estimate himself, but he often times shrunk from demanding what he might justly have required for himself. When he died :ie know of no enemies and could count lis friends by scores. His son may be pardoned in saying he has not known a manlier or more honest man. The last rites were conducted as definitely planned by him, by tho Methodist Episcopal church and the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of which two institutions he was a member.
