    Wallace Baillod
    Wallace Baillod, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Baillod, passed away Tuesday of this week, Feb. 6, after an illness extending over many weeks. A number of weeks ago he was brought to the Hospital here suffering with a severe case of appendicitis. An operation was performed at once, but from the start it was realized that his condition was critical. Complications developed and he underwent a number of operations and would not have been able to live as long as he did had he not had a strong constitution.
    The going of this splendid young man bring its burden of sorrow to the loved ones, and to all his many friends. But through the sorrow shines the light of his fine life and the beautiful story of the way he faced the end. He was a clean, manly young fellow, of worth-while aspirations, and his spirit of geniality and kindness had made him beloved by all who knew him. And this strength of character was shown in unusual way during the long weeks of his suffering and as the certainty of the end drew near. He did not give up until a few days before the end came, but then he realized that he could not get well and calmly said he was ready to go. He spoke words of cheer to his friends as he bade them good-bye

    And gave directions concerning the funeral arrangements. He had taken a special liking to Reverend Rutledge who had visited him during his sickness and requested that he preach the funeral sermon and that the service be held in the Methodist church.

    The young people of the Youngtown neighborhood, where he had spent most of the years of his life are deeply touched by his passing and the influence of his splendid life cannot be measured.

    He was born at Rossville, Kansas, Feb 21, 1899. He was a member of the Presbyterian church having joined in Kansas City. He leaves the father and mother, two brothers, grandpa and grandma Rush, who make their home with their daughter, Mrs. Baillod, numerous relatives and a great number of close friends.

    The funeral service will be held at the Methodist church this afternoon, and interment in the cemetery at Youngtown.

    While he was taken away in the very opening days of promise, yet his life was a real success. He has but gone to a land of endless opportunities, and unbroken joy. –Marion, Kan. Record

    The Baillod family are well remembered here, having lived in the little cottage south of J.W. Miller’s for many years. Mr. Baillod was engineer and mill man for J.C. Bradley. Their many Rossville friends are very sorry to learn of the loss of Wallace and extend sympathy to them in their bereavement.
