Death of C. J. Grant.
Calvin J. Grant is dead. After a
noble and heoric fight lasting for near-
ly a year he has succoumbedto the
grim destroyer and is now numbered
among ti e r iph e o fo r g e t enemy.
"Death loves a shining mark, and
knocks with equal footsteps and relent-
less impartiality at the door of the
palace and the cottage."
But yesterday he was with the liv-
ing, his soul is now with the great
majority, and knows those things that
our race would pay the billions of
earth to know. Life with its hopes
and joys, its storms and calms, its op-
portunities for glorv and gain, is over,
eternity with its vast and limitless pros-
pects is before him. Henceforth his
name and deeds will be but a shred of
memory among his fellows. The sun
will rise on the morrow, the stars will
lollow the same shining pathway as
Uty have since the Chaldean astrono-
mers studied them of old, but the pages
o life's story for Calvin Grant are shut
He was the son of Tom Grant, re-
cently deceased, who was a pioneer
from the state of Kentucky, born 43
years ago with a strain of Chickasaw
blood from his maternal_side. Pauls
Valley has been his home since it was a
town, he has been identified with its
every interests, merchant, stockman,
farmer and banker excelling greatly in
them all, his was a life of purpose, his
energies were concentrated on the
building up of a fortune, and that he
was successful, a list of his properties
enumerated in his will will amply at-
His wife, a noble woman, died about
18 months since leaving four children
two boys and two girls. As this article
is being written the home of the d< ?d
banker is in view, the not spier di
in this section of the Indian Territory.
What a commentary oh,the frailty and
vanity of human endeavors—just as
, the palatial home was completed, the
fortune fully assured, the children ar-
riving at an age to become a comfort,
the dial hand on the face of time is
suddenly stopped, the sun is darkened,
v • the stars go out, the £falsc cekses to
beat and the soul is summoned bafck
to the God who gave it.
Peace to his soul. May infinite love
and mercy watch over and care for
those left to mourn his loss.
It has just been announced that tp pro-
ride tor the increased volume of traffic on
R>ck Island lines, a large amount of new
equipment will be delivered during, the
month of March, on orders placed several
months ago. It is indicative of the indus-
trial and commercial prosperity of Rock Is-

essary to place another large order for de-
livery in the early summer.
