Mrs. Ada Logan Called By Death

Wife of M. R. Logan Became Worse Last Week and Passes Away On Tuesday, February 12th

We were called upon this week to announce the sad message of the death of Mrs. Ada Logan, wife of M. R. Logan, city councilman and justice of the peace, which occurred Tuesday, February 12th, at her home in the west part of town, following a lingering illness of considerable duration, but which became surprisingly serious about two weeks ago. Mr. and Mrs. Logan had planned to go to Excelsior Springs, in the hope of benefitting their health, when Mrs. Logan became too ill to be moved and after consultation last week with specialists in Springfield, she was returned to her home and gradually and rapidly passed away. She was born Ada Sanders Jernigan on January 22, 1876 in Ozark. Her mother passed away when she was but five years of age. She joined the Christian church when yet a small girl and to this faith she was ever faithful. She was married to Malcolm R. Logan in 1894, to which union were born four children: three of whom together with their father, survive to mourn her departure. She is also survived by one brother, M. N. Jernigan of north of Ozark. These children are Winford S. of Ozark; Malcolm M. and Mrs. Sidney Hicks, both of Chicago.

Son of a pioneer Ozark family, Mr. Logan spent his boyhood days in this community. As a young man he homesteaded land in the west and returned several years ago to build a home on the hill above Jones Spring, which he learned to love as a boy. His plans for development of this beautiful spot were hampered by failing health, and death came after a lingering heart ailment. Immediate survivors include his wife, Mrs. Emma Mabel Logan; one brother, M.R. Logan of Ozark; three sisters, Mrs. Bessie Immel, Claremont, Calif., Mrs. Ruda Gideon, Ontario, Calif., and Mrs. Ross Bingham, Springfield, Mo. A man who cherished the companionship of friends above all else, Guy Logan loved people and nature. His philosophy of life is well stated in the following poem of his own composition:

My Ozark Home

I live in a dingle twixt the hills

In a vine covered cot in a nook

Nestled snug and low ‘neath a shelt’ring tree

On a scarp by the side of a brook

A quaint rustic cabin built of logs

Midst the sylvae and sparkling streams,

A wealth of wild flowers growing ‘round

In a land filled with golden dreams.

Gay daffodils grace the winding path

That leads to the clear purly run,

Are bathed each night with sweet honey dew,

Fondly kissed by the morning sun

I walk in the cool of the evening

’Long a trail that leads thro the wood

And rest upon a moss covered stump

Where a stalwart burr oak stood.

I wait neath the blue of the welkin

For the evening shade to fall

For a red doe and her speckled fawn

To appear for their evening call.

Long shadows fall--the day is don

The sun slowly sinks ‘neath the sea,

I list to a strain, a sweet refrain

From wild life’s sublime symphony.

Katydid bows on her shapely knee,

The cicada strums on his wing,

A frog in the brook plays the bass viol

While the birds of night softly sing.

I quietly rest on my pillow

In a haven in fairland,

The sandman comes--and softly hums

While I drift into slumber land.

I awake with the dawn at twilight,

A bright summer day is begun,

The somber fringe of a waning night

Is vanished by the rising sun.

I Idly stroll thro the calm wildwood

Where the red man’s footsteps trod;

There I walk and talk with Nature,

There I walk and talk with God.

--E. Guy Logan

Ozark, Missouri
