On Monday, August 22, 1898, at one o'clock p.m., the angel of death layed his icy fingers upon the forehead of J. M. Hurt, of this place. Mr. Hurt has been sick for the past three weeks with congestion of the brain, and although it was evident almost from the first that he could not recover, yet his death was a sad blow to his family and the neighborhood. Mr. Hurt will be especially missed in church and Sunday School. He was a former superintendent of the Sunday School and steward of the church here and at the time of his death was teacher of the Bible class, which position he has filled for over a year. He was an honest, upright, Christian man, a good neighbor, husband and father, ever striving to rear his children in the admonition of the Lord. He leaves a wife, seven children of his own, and three step-children. His end was peaceful and triumphant, his faith strong, his trust in the merits of the Savior unwavering.

James Martin Hurt was born in Rushville, Buchanan county, Missouri, October 5, 1844. He was married at Sergeants Bluffs, October 16, 1870, to Miss Eva Brower, who died September 28, 1892. On February 15, 1894, he was again married to Mrs. Wilma Addison, of Sergeants Bluffs. He lived a few years on the McDonald ranch near Merrill and fourteen years ago he moved on his farm here where he has since resided. The funeral was held in the U. B. church at Adaville on Wednesday, at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. R. Astleford and the remains laid to rest beside those of his first wife in the Adaville cemetery to await the Resurrection morn. The sympathy of the community is with the bereaved family in their affliction.
