Passes Peacefully Away After Over
Haifa Century of Service.
DEATH OF GOOD OLD JOHN C. SMITH,
Who Walked Into rittsburg and Got a Job
in 1S29, and Stayed.
THE TEEMIMT10X OP A A'OTABLE LIFE
John C. Smith, who has been tipstaff in
the Pittsburg courts for over 50 years, died
at 530 o'clock last night at his residence,
Six weeks ago last Friday he was stricken
with paralysis of the heart, and the day be
fore he went home from his post of duty in
the Court of Quarter Sessions. Prom the
very first Dr. Foster had no hopes of his re
covery; but at times he again rallied. Even
after a combination Of diseases of the kid
neys had developed he rallied, and until the
last moment of his life he displayed wonder
ful physical powers.
He passed away as peacefully as though
going into a sleep, surrounded by nearly all
of his family. He was also conscious almost
to the last.
Deceased left three sons, 'William Smith,
of New Castle; E. D. Smith, of the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad, and Percy F.
Smith, the printer; and three daughters, Mrs.
Kate A. Fullmer, of Chicago, and Misses Ella
and Lida Smith. Three sons and one daughter
are dead, and Mrs. Smith died in 1S69.
VTHEIT THE CITT "WAS A VIXLAOE.
Mr. 8mith was horn In Greensburg in 1809,
and came to Pittsburg in IKS. He walked into
this city looking lor a job, having completed
his apprenticeship at tin and copper smithing.
He went to work the next morningafterhis ar
rival at Wiley Davis', on Wood street,
opposite the First Presbyterian Church.
He afterward encaged in business for him
self, meanwhile identifying himself with the
Conntv Courts, in which he served as an officer
for over half a century.
He served in the old Court Hcuse on Market
street; in the second Court H ouse. and also in
the new temple of justice. On the day of the
dedication of the latter he was the guest of
the County Commissioners, and, as the oldest
living officer of the court, sat upon the plat
form during the dedication ceremonies.
During the past week officers of tho court
called upon him, and, in referring to Import
ant cases in the court, he pitied the officers
who allowed liquor tq be given to jurors, but
said it required all the wits he possessed to
prevent the smuggling of liquor to jurors.
A PBIYJXEGED OFFICIAL.
He enjoyed the confidence of all the judges
to such an extent that he was allotted to come
and go as he pleased, though he never missed a
day when able to walk, and he has been away
from his post less than seven weeks.
He was a member of Craf ton Presbyterian
Church, and for years an elder of the Halle
wood Presbyterian Church.
He was a staunch Democrat, while all his
sons are Republicans. He scarcely ever failed
to vote, always being accompanied by one of
his boys. He was a most affectionate father,
and no one enjoyed the love of his children to
a greater degree.
About five years ago a man made an applica
tion to the Judges for Mr. Smith's position, on
the claim that Mr. Smith was sick and would
never come back. It is a curious fact that that
applicant died several years ago, wliile Mr.
Smith continued his duties as regularly as ever.
When the war broke out it was spoken about
at the court that Mr. Smith was a Democrat,
and one day he was summanlv discharged. He
went home and stayed there tor three months,
when the same men who had sent him away
came and asked him to take his place at the
court again, so valuable had his services be
come. It is expected that the Conrt will make some
arrangements regarding tho death of the old

Many of our customers have complained of the frequent shifting of
departments. One week a certain department would be on first floor,
and on the next visit the purchaser on going to the accustomed place
would be informed that the department had been removed to second
floor, or to basement. This, customers say, is bewildering and confus
ing. We admit all this, and in extenuation would say that many of
these changes were experimental. We are like the man who was found
guilty of bigamy who, when asked by the Judge why he had committed
so aggravated an offense as marrying six wives, answered: "I was trying
to find a good one." So we, too, have been trying to find good places for
our" various departments. We think we have finally succeeded, and will
make no more changes, except during the Christmas .holidays. Below
we print our directory of departments:
