DeSoto, January 21, 1899
Chas. BEISBARTH died at his home, last Wednesday, age of 58 years, of heart trouble from which he had suffered for the past three years. The funeral services were held at the Congregational Church by Rev. Paul WENDT of the German Evangelical Church, of which church he was a member. All the business houses in the city were closed in the afternoon of the day of the funeral. Mr. BEISBARTH was one of the most prosperous and enterprising business men in our city. He came to DeSoto in 1868 and for the past 28 years has been engaged in the grocery business, until about six months ago (when) he retired from business; his oldest son, Ed, assuming the entire charge. He was president of the People’s Bank, a member of the A.F. & A.M., Knight Templars, I.O.O.F.K. of H. and K. of P. and he held the office of major in the uniform rank of the latter lodge. His funeral was one of the largest ever held in this city and the floral offerings were the most beautiful and profuse. Seven children are left to mourn the loss of a kind and loving father, the mother having died some nine months previous.
Capt. Joseph WALTHER, another of our old and prominent citizens, died at his residence Monday night, of heart failure. The Captain has been failing in health for some time but was not considered dangerous until a few days ago. He was well known and had a host of friends throughout the county.

The grip is prevailing and whole families are now suffering from this malady. Our school has closed for two weeks on account of sickness.
A hard joke is told on a certain young man who had a miserable toothache caused by a decayed tooth. He went to town to have it extracted by a dentist, but when he got there his courage forsook him and instead of going to the dentist he went to the shoemaker, who was his friend. When the shoemaker had heard his troubles he examined the tooth and then told him to be easy about it – he would get it out in less than a twinkle. Accordingly, the shoemaker made a strong string of hemp and looped it in such a manner around the young man’s tooth that it was firmly held by the string. He then told him to sit down on a chair. The shoemaker then tied the string securely to a nail driven in the floor. After this preliminary, awl in hand, he crawled up in back of the chair where our young man was sitting, and then and there he plunged that awl about two inches into that part of the young man’s anatomy which we call in German ‘verkehrt front’ (wrong front). Up he jumped, the tooth dangling from the string, exclaiming, and scratching that part where the awl had hurt him. “I never thought that teeth had roots so deep”.
Dr. DENNY is kept very busy here of late on account of so many people having the grip.

By the death of Charles BEISBARTH at DeSoto last week that city lost one of its most useful citizens, and the population showed its appreciation of that fact by the closing of business houses and everybody attending the funeral Friday afternoon. He belonged to three fraternal societies, Masons, Odd Fellows, and Knights of Pythias, and while the funeral was, at his request, conducted by the Mason, the other orders turned out in full force in the procession. Services were held at the residence and at the Congregational Church by Rev. WENDT, after which the body was accompanied to the city cemetery and deposited in solemn form. C.E. PYLE, W.M. of DeSoto lodge gave the funeral ceremony, probably to better form than it was ever heard in that city in the procession of the Knights Templar and Uniform Rank of K. of P. as escorts, in full regalia, formed a prominent part. We remember Charles BEISBARTH when he first came to DeSoto, years ago a mere boy, and secured a position as clerk in the store of Knorpp and Blank. By gentlemanly conduct and correct deportment he soon became popular and when accumulated enough to go into business for himself he retained lifelong friends and made new ones, and emulated a good prosperity. He leaves quite a family of children and goes to join his wife who preceded him to the spirit land about a year ago. His health was broken down two years or more ago, and we learn that his suffering for some time had been intense. May he now rest in peace.
