On June 12th, 1912, the death angel again tolled the parting knell and in sad accents called our dear grandfather, R.M. Emerson, from our presence, thus terminating an illness of more than three weeks at the home of his son, Joda. Remains were laid to rest at Pleasant Grove Cemetery, beside those of his former companion, who was called June 13th, eight years since. Funeral services were conducted by Rev.A.B. Millsaps.

Murillo-By Our Regular Correspondent. It was indeed with regret we learned last week of the death of Uncle R.M. Emerson, at the home of his son, Joda, near Rupert. He was a good man-an every day Christian, and a man whom everybody loved. His children and grandchildren have been left a most exemplary life, one we trust they will try to emulate.
