Pope, in St. Francis county, MO., in 1860 and lived a devoted Christian for thirty-seven years. We commend the "Comforter" in whom he trusted to the bereaved family and friends. Bro. Beck has gone to the mansions prepared for those who love the Lord. we all must go hence ere long; God help us to be ready. We buried Bro. Beck at Shiloh church, Craighead county, Ark., Feb. 24, 1897, the writer conducting the obsequies. A great concourse attended the funeral.  I.F. Clark
