Death Occurs in Hospital
Fredie Ward, the sixteen-year-
old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Ward,
who reside near Lacey, died Satur-
day morning, September 21, at 1 30
o'clock, at the University hospital
in Enid, following an operation re-
moving the appendix.
The necessity for an operation
came about in a peculiar manner.
A family reunion was being held at
the Ward home, when about 130
relatives and friends were present.
Different games and amusements
were indulged in. During a game

Rev. and Mrs. N. Paul Barton
Who will leave soon for Shannon City, Iowa, where Rev. Barton Ins
accepted the pastorship of the M. E. Church of that place.
Rev. N. Paid Barton will probably preach his farewell sermon at
the First Methodist Episcopal Church in Hennessey, next Sunday
morning. Rev. Barton is transfering to the Des Moines, Iowa, Con-
ference, where he has accepted a charge at Shannon City, Iowa.
Rev. Barton has been pastor of the M. E. Church here for the past
two years and during that time has done excellent work, making
many friends both in and outside the church. He has proved to be
fearless and straightforward, energetic as a pastor, and has strength-
ened the church and conscientiously worked for its best interests
during his pastorate here. He has been instrumental in .repairing
and remodeling both the church and parsonage and has received
over 70 persons into the church.
Rev. Barton has been ably assisted by Mrs. Barton during his
work here. Mrs. Barton has been quite a social acquisition as well
as a worker in the church. She is intelligent and refined and her
musical talent has added much to the services. Her great moral in-
fluence will be greatly missed.
Shannon City is a good charge and pays $1,000 and house, and
while Rev. and Mrs. Barton's departure is deeply regretted here, their
many friends are anxious for their deserved advancement.
