Miles W. Goodman Dies At Lostine

Resident of County for 31 Years Succumbs After Long-Period of Ill Health.

Miles W. Goodman died Thursday, November 22, 1917, at his home at Lostine of cancer of the stomach. He had been suffering from the malady for a year, but was confined to his bed only two weeks. Three and a half years ago Mr. Goodman was thrown from a buggy in a runaway and his hip was crushed. He was unable to get out at all for a year and then had to use crutches, and, and from the time of the accident never was free from pain. But he bore his suffering with fortitude born of a high character and his cheerful manner concealed the pain from others.

The funeral was held on Friday at the home. It was in charge of the Masonic fraternity, of which Mr. Goodman had been a member for 28 years. A number of Masons attended from Enterprise, where Mr. Goodman joined the order. He was a charter member of the Lostine Lodge and served as master several years. At the funeral, Rev. Jasper Bogue delivered the address, and burial was in the Lostine cemetery.

Mr. Goodman was born October 10, 1851, in Keokuk County, Iowa. When he was 13 years old his father died.

He was a justice of the peace at Lostine for a long time.
