J. J. Pugh, one of the first settlers
of Alva, died Tuesday afternoon, Aug.
2nd 1904 after a few days illness aged
about 74 years. He was a carpenter
by trade and served in the Union army
through the Civil war. A son from
Carmen was with him when he died.
He was buried yesterday in the A. O.
U. W. cemetery. As assistant city
marshal of Hutchinson, Kan., in an
early dav he drove out the toughs who
were defying the authorities and com-
pelled a decent respect for the city
ordinances. Several children sur-
I have heard Bill Nye, Sunset Cox,
and many other great humorists, but
Chas. Lane is, unequivocally, the fun-
niest man I have ever heard talk.
Others may amuse, but Chas. Lane
convulses. You laugh until you hurt.
I have heard him three times and I
haven’t had enough of him yet. He
is on our course here this winter, and
I anticipate more pleasure from his
lecture than from any other we are to
have. You may just say to your
friends that they cannot afford to miss
him. While he keeps his audience in
a constant fit of laughter, he also
hurls great nuggets of truth and wis-
dom at them that will stay with them
after the laugh is over. He is not
simply a “funny man.” He is a great
scholar, a true philosopher, and an
elegant Christian gentleman.
