Adolphus Baum


Adolphus Baum, son of Miller and Carolina Baum, died, after an illness of two years, at his parents' residence in Jackson Center, July 14, aged 21 years, three months and 22 days. He was a young man of industrious, steady habits, loving and true, beloved and highly respected by all who knew him.

In respect to the deceased, the Flint Lake Temperance Society, of which he was a member, met and adopted the following preamble and resolutions:

WHEREAS, It has pleased the Almighty Ruler of the Universe, to remove from our midst a brother and fellow worker in the temperance cause, therefore

Resolved, That we, as a society, do tender our heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family, and that in his death our society has lost a worthy member and faithful advocate of temperance.

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the records of the Flint Lake temperance society; also a copy furnished our county papers for publication and one to the bereaved friends. By order of committee.


By C. C.

Oh, grieve not for him, that life's journey has ended,
His sufferings, sorrows and burdens laid down;
Be glad the freed spirit so early ascended,
Escaping the cross, and receiving the crown.
Not dead but still living, yet loving and true,
He's waiting for you, mother, waiting for you.

Oh, call him not dead! He has entered the portal,
Where life reigns supreme and earth's trials are o'er;
Though the casket is borken, the spirit immortal,
Now shines like a star in the sky evermore.
In that beautiful home of the loving and true,
He is waiting for you, father, waiting for you.

You will miss his kind presence and be broken-hearts,
You'll watch for his foot-steps that come not again;
But love is immortal and souls are not parted
When closely connected by love's golden chain;
There can be no death for the loving and true;
Be comforted, sisters, he's waiting for you.

Tho' gone from our sight he will still linger near you,
A minist'ring angel, to guide with good will.
He may be one sent back to comfort and cheer you,
With rich consolation your sad hearts to fill.
He'll not leave you comfortless -- loving and true,
He is waiting for you, brothers, waiting for you.
