Death of K. F. Edwards.
Summerland, (Gal.) Advmce.
After a brave struggle, lasting for
more than a year, on Monday morn
ing, March 13, R. F. Edwards finally
succumbed to consumption and passed
! peacefully away, surrouded by his sor
rowing wife and relatives. The fun
eral services were held at Liberty Hall
on Tuesday afternoon. Rev. Mr.
Westenberg, pastor of the Santa Bar
bara Methodist Episcopal church, offi
ciated. A large attedance of relatives
and friends of the deceased were pres
ent. In his sermon Mr. Westenberg
dwelt on the solace to he found in the
hope of a future state that is founded
on a faith in Jesus and an unshaken
belief in the teachings of the Bible.
Without this faith, he said, poor
humanity was adrift, a helpless hulk
upon un unknown sea. lie quoted
the words of the prophet Isaaiah, who
compared it the shadow of a great rock
in a weary land. On this theme he
made a moving discourse that brought
tears to the eyes of many of his hearers.
After the services the remains were
carried to the station by the pall
bearers and shipped to Los Angeles,
where they were deposited in the plot
belonging to the Typographical Union
of that city.
Many beautiful floral pieces covered
the casket and the hall was tastifully
decorated with evergreens and flowers.
Richard Franklin Edwards was born
born at Bloowsburg, Pa., August '25,
1870. He came to this coast in 1893,
stopping at Tacoma, Wash. In 1895
he came to Los Angeles and in 1896
came to Summerland to take a partner
ship in the Advance-Courier, retiring
from the newspaper business to accept
a position as salesman for the cigar
firm of Snyder & Davis. AVhen this
firm dissolved partnership he returned
to Los Angeles to take his old position
as compositor on the Morning Herald. ]
It is supposed that arduous labor, com
bined with exposure, first planted the
seed of the dread disease which ulti
mately caused hife death. That Dick
was highly esteemed and well beloved
by all who knew him w;is demonstrated
by the unceasing care and general
interest that was taken in him during
his long illness. Peace to his ashes,
and may his poor, troubled soul find
rest in that long sleep in the misty
beyond for which he yearned so long
before his passing
Base Ball Notice.
Are we to have a base ball team in
our city this season ? This is the ques
tion that it being asked by many sports
who are getting anxious for the matter
to assume definite shape. Br 1 12, nothing
can be done until the ball h .ng public
produce some one one to assume the
management. There was in '9B a ball
committee who should, now that the
season is drawing near, take the
matter in hand, call a meeting and
appoint a manager. Surely we had a
team last year we were proud of, hav
ing met defeat only a few times and
then always owing to imported players.
All of our l.ist season's players are
still in town. With such players as
Mumford, McFadden, Ganey, Pearsall,
Morrisey and others, we can putin a
winning team, which, I can assure you,
can make it interesting for the minor
league clubs. So let the public get to
gether, as the matter rests with them,
and call a meeting as soon as possible.
Come ye base ball cranks and help the
movement along. Surely you are still

From Port Jarvis New Yorker.
Situated at the pretty little village of
Arden, Orange county, New York, on
the line of the Erie Railroad, 44 miles
from New York, is the headquarters of
the Arden Farms Dairy Co. Until
three years ago the business was con
ducted by Mr. E. H. Harriman. At
that time a stock company was formed,
the principal stockholders of which are
E TI Harriman, VV. A. McClellan and
William Viner. Mr. McClellan is Pres
ident and Treasurer, and Mr. Viner is
General Manager of the company.
The company controls 15,000 acres of
land, extending from Southfield to a
poiht two miles west of Arden, a dis
tance of four miles. The actual farm
ing land comprises 5,000 acres divided
into seven farms. Each farm is in
charge of a foreman. The offices and
principal building of the company are
located at Arden.
Mr. Viner, the general manager of
tht> company, is a gentleman thor
oughly conversant with all the details
of farming and the outside work con
nected with the affairs of the company.
At the time Mr Viner took charge of
the Arden Farm, some five years ago,
the total milk production was from 80
cows. Under his careful management
the business has increased until at the
present time the company owns 37.5
cows, 250 of which are milkers, supply
ing 60 cans of milk in summer and 35
in winter, and the demand is steadily
Mr. McClellan, the president and
treasurer, attends to the official and
clerical business of the company. Be
sides their farming interests the com
pany operate two stores, one at Arden,
the other at Southfield. They have
since August last expended upwards
of §3<.',000 in the building of barns,
creamery, ice house, grading, etc.
The company has in contemplation
the erection of another and much
larger barn with a capacity of 150 cows,
about >ne mile from the village of
Arden. By so doing, the cows of three
farms will be centralized, thereby fur
ther facilitating the work.
Some 40 men are constantly employed
by the company. They are well paid
and comfortable and as a consequence
they are faithful and reliable employes

the power of the resurrection in its
relation to christian humanity. The
choir, with its full complement, rend

beautiful solos by Mr. John Mclnnes
and Miss Grace McCaslin.
The floral decorations at Emmanuel
church were neatly arranged and
conspicuous in chaste and simple
beauty. Calla lilies and carnations

on the font, potted lilies at the end of
the choir stalls and potted hyacinths

The musical part of the service was
well rendered and very impressive, the
choir being greatly strengthened by
Mrs. T. F. Hudson, of Cameron, and
Mr. Ralph Goodal, of Driftwood.
Tours' service was used in the morn
ing and evening, together with Stain

Away My Lord."
The Rev. Mr. Robertson delivered
the morning sermon from the text:

The floral decorations at St. Marks
were of exquisite taste and beauty
and almost beggar description. Each
post and pillar was draped in fern and
evergreen. The altar decorat ions were
especially attractive, being made up of
arches, extending over the whole and
set with candles; especially pretty
designs were those of a heart and
cross of candles on either side of the
altar, which, when lit, stood out in
bold relief against a background and
arch of fern. Inside the chancel rail,
in endless profusion, but tastily ar
ranged, were palms, lilies, carnations,
roses, hyacinths, etc., each piece seem
ing to set forth in a manner all its own
the glad tidings of "Peace on Earth;
Good Will to Men!" In the evening,
