PAGE BIGHT KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALG6NA, IOWA DIES TUESDAY AT DURT HOME '_______ * After Long Sickness Veteran Lumberman Succumbs. By W. C. DewoL This afternoon all that was mortal of Oliver Perry McDonald will be laid away forever. Tuesday morning at nine the tide of life ran out and the spirit •which "drew from out the boundless deep" turned 'again home.' There was no moaning at the bar when he put out to sea. The once stout heart had sunk by slow degrees till it could beat no longer. For two days he had not been conscious. He never suffered pain. Worn out by the years, his body gave way month by month, in the long last days, till the peaceful | end. It was as he would have ! wished. j Death claimed a prince in Perry McDonald. Let him not be pictured as one without fault; he ; would not have liked that. No mnn ' is sans peur and sans reproche. Hut he was a prince nevertheless, In that his associates loved him for what he was. In its best sense he ( was all his life an exemplar of "a j hale fellow well met." Thousands have lost a good and friend. AS BURT OLDTIMER DEPARTS TO SOLVE MYSTERY OF LIFE Tribute by T. C. 8. 0. P. McDonald, pioneer business mnn, forthright citizen, has gone to an undiscovered country, and the scenes ho knew here, and the friends who kneiv him, vrttl know him no more. He lias solved the mystery of life and human destiny; On November 21), just past another milestone, Perry, us friends called him, looked out on earth and sky for the last time. A long life lay behind him, a life that was accompanied all its lengthened way by steady courage «nd earnest purpose. In his prime few men were Perry's, equal In strength and vigor. He was successful in business, and his friends were legion. Now life's fitful fever Is over for him, and he Is at rest. For more than 11 jcnr Perry had battled with fall, ing health, conscious tlmt the end was inevitable. At the end, like a tired child, he sank quietly to sleep. Goodbye, old friend.
