      AN OLD SETTLER DEMISES
      J.H. Rutherford died Tuesda, December 15, 1925, and was laid away with a large concourse of relatives, friends and neighbors in the Mercer Gap cemetery. He leaves two sons surviving him, out of a family of four children, the eldest dying in infancy and the youngest, James H. Rutherford, died in 1900. The two surviving sons are C.W., who resides on the old family homestead, and Dr. T.M. Rutherford of Comanche.
      Mr. Rutherford was born in Tennessee April 22, 1846, where he remained until young manhood, when he came to Texas, and was married in Milam county in 1869 to Miss Fannie Cloud, who preceded him to the grave March 15, 1913. The family came to Comanche county in 1879, settling on the homestead still occupied by his sons.
      He was upright and honorable in his life and always sttod well with his neighbors. He was converted to the Christian faith nearly forty years ago under the ministry of the late M. Ray, at Mercer's Gap, and shortly afterwards joined the Methodist Church, of which he steadfastly continued a devoted and consistent member. In that faith he passed over the glory land fully prepared to hear the welcome plaudit, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things; I will make the ruler over many things; enter thou into the joys of thy Lord!" If Americans generally filled the mission of friend, beighbor and citizen as well as Bro. Rutherford, there would be little need for court houses, jails and penitentiaries, and the kingdom of Heaven would truly be at hand.
      A FRIEND.
