Dick Beck Dies; Paralysis Cause
Prominent in Democratic Politics, Twice Nominated For County Office.
Richard M. Beck, more familiarly known as just plain "Dick" Beck, died Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock at his home, 1009 South Branson street. He was sixty-three years old and death was due to paralysis. The funeral will be held from the residence Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, with Rev. Thomas Gray, pastor of the Temple Congregational church, in charge. The Samaritan lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, of which Mr. Beck was a member will be in charge of the arrangements. The body will lie in state at the residence from 4 o'clock today until Friday noon.
Mr. Beck is survived by a widow and one daughter, Mrs. Charles Craig of this city, two sisters, Mrs. Josephine Putnam of California and Mrs. Elizabeth Parrago of Oregon, and one brother, Oliver Beck of the state of Washington. He was a member of the Temple Congregational church of this city, as well as of the local Masonic order. For the last fourteen weeks he had suffered from paralysis having been stricken in January. His condition had been critical since last Friday, and for many hours before death he was unconscious.
"Dick" Beck was a democrat as to politics, and twice had been favored by his party with nominations for office, once for county treasurer and once for city councilman. For many years he had conducted a grocery store on South Branson street, near Twelfth street. He was born March 30, 1850, and since a mere boy had been a resident of Marion. He was a student of the old Marion seminary, which had quite a local reputation in years gone by.
"Dick" Beck was known as a friend of the poor, and he was a dispenser of sympathy and charity in substantial forms to the unfortunate, but in his giving he was unostentatious. Through his kindness and charitable disposition he won hundreds of friends who lament his death. He was well known throughout city and county.
Richard M. Beck
Richard M. Beck, intimately known as "Dick" Beck, a man universally liked by all and sincerely loved by his family, passed to his final reward at 7 o'clock last evening. That reward, judged by deeds done on this earth, will surely be a glorious one, for "Dick" Beck was friend of the poor and his sympathy was extended without ostentation in the form of substantial assistance.
For fourteen weeks, Mr. Beck had been confined to his home, 1009 South Branson street, having been stricken with paralysis. Since last Friday his condition had been extremely critical and he was unconscious many hours preceding his death.
Richard M. Beck was born March 30, 1850, and was 63 years of age at time of his demise. Since a boy he was a resident of Marion to the time of his death. He was a student in the old Marion Seminary, an institution which sent out into the world some of the best men and women this community has known.
For many years Mr. Beck was the proprietor of a grocery on South Branson street near Twelfth street. Here he had a large trade and became well known throughout the city and county. It was here also that Mr. Beck dispensed much charity for he had many applicants for food who had not the means to purchase the necessities of life. To such he gave unstintingly and made no charges against them.
Mr. Beck was a democrat in politics but he was not a politician. He was frequently urged to enter contests for public office and was twice honored by his party with nominations, once for county treasurer and once for the city council. His popularity was attested in 1906, when as candidate for county treasurer in a county then of large republican majority, he came with in a very close margin of being elected. Mr. Beck's honesty and his upright character was his appeal to the people, for he made no active campaign for his election.
Mr. Beck was a member of the Temple Congregational church of Marion and of Samaritan Lodge, No. 105, F.&A.M. He is survived by his widow and one daughter, Mrs. Charles Craig, of this city; two sisters, Mrs. Josephine Putnam, of California, and Mrs. Elizabeth Parrago, of Oregon, and one brother, Oliver Beck, of the state of Washington. A coincidence is the fact that the two brothers were similarly stricken about the same time and Oliver Beck is now in very poor health at his home in Washington.
No arrangements have been made for the funeral of Mr. Beck. The announcement of his death, while not unexpected, was met by responses of deep regret wherever made known last night, for Mr. Beck was a citizen whose loss means much to the community as well as to his family to which he was thoroughly devoted.

A Sad Death
Miss May Cloud Passes Away.
Sets in and Terrible Suffering Results. Others Inoculated.
Miss May Cloud, aged eighteen years the young woman who was so severely burned about two weeks ago, by her clothing catching fire from a stove, died Wednesday night at the County Infirmary, after great suffering. She had been removed to the Infirmary in order that she might receive the benefit of the treatment there. The doctors say her injuries were the worse they ever saw as the result of burns. Nothing that medical aid could do was of any avail, and the only relief afforded was but temporary. Miss Cloud was possessed of a small estate and her guardian was Mr. Nicholas Holman. She is said to have been betrothed to a very worthy young man, and Christmas would have been the wedding day, had not the cruel accident prevented. Miss Cloud's spine and head suffered the severest injuries, and gangrene and septicemia set in, in their worst forms. From good authority it is learned that the doctor and the nurse in charge of the case, were inoculated with the poison. It is said that they will suffer only a mild form of the disease.
The Doctor and Nurse.
The authorities at the County Infirmary have confirmed the report that the doctor and nurse in charge of Miss Cloud, are afflicted with blood poisoning from inoculation. The physician is young Dr. Whitson of Jonesboro, and the nurse is Mrs. May L. Good.
