Resolutions of Respect.  Ozark County No. 1407, K. & L. of S.

Z. Acuff was one of the oldest members of the Ozark County No. 1407, Knights and Ladies of Security, both in years and in length of membership, and to him belongs much of the credit for the growth of the local council, from a small beginning some years ago to one of the largest fraternal societies in the community, He was chosen first president of the council, and continued to serve in this capacity until poor health caused his retirement a few months ago. Even when he was no longer able to attend the meetings of the council, he still continued to manifest a lively interest in the affairs of the order. Whereas an all-wise providence has seen fit to remove Brother Acuff from our council, therefore be it resolved: That the officers and members of Ozark County No. 1407, K & L of S morn the loss of a brother who was a good citizen and a highly esteemed member and that we extend to the relatives of our deceased brother our heartfelt sympathy in their hour of bereavement. That these resolutions be spread upon our council records and that a copy of the same be given to the family of the deceased and also  to each of the local papers for publication  D. C. Leonard  Annie Grant  F. O. Hartley  Committee
