Mr. William Emerson Baker
Mr. William Emerson Baker, of Boston and Wellesley, died on Thursday.  He was a gentleman who had accumulated a large fortune by the exercise of the qualities which compel success in every day affairs; and yet part of his life was lived amid surroundings as grotesque and in occupations as little reasonable as those which obtain in the world on the other side of the looking glass.  Mr. Baker owned a beautiful place at Wellesley which he called the Ridge Hills Farms.  He spent a great deal of money and a great deal of ingenious effort in the adornment of his estate; and side by side with the many evidences of catholic taste and a trade appreciation of the beautiful in nature were countless inventions of a fantastic and extravagant imagination, without a parallel, so far as we are aware, among the solid citizens of this Republic.  With juvenile eagerness, this amiable and otherwise sensible gentleman devoted himself to planning pantomime tricks and innocent surprises and startling novelties in the way of decoration, some of them extremely complicated and costly, and others almost childish in their simplicity.  The outside walls of the late Mr. Baker’s stables were decorated with a serious of enormous paintings representing scenes, if we remember aright, from the Nibelun-genlied..  Everywhere upon the grounds the visitor encountered some elaborately planned piece of extravagance. By the lake a lofty monument in the shape of a champagne bottle, constructed of thousands of empty bottles; in another place a towering pile of rusty smoke-stacks from dismantled locomotive engines; here a maze, there a subterranean grotto lighted with colored glass; here, in the pathway, a concealed platform on soft springs, which, as you stepped upon it, sent you a lurching; there a stool in front of a flowering cactus, and when you sat down upon the stool to inspect the cactus the plank sank out of sight in the ground, and there sprang up a wooden devil, painted red, which grinned insolently in your face.  The catalogue might be prolonged, but these few examples will give sufficient idea of the range and variety of Mr. Baker’s whimsical conceptions.  As the consequence of all this eccentric effort, the Ridge Hills Farm became one of the curiosities of America.  It was a gentleman’s country place, a dime museum, a junk shop and a perpetual April Fool’s-day combined.  Thousands of people visited Mr. Baker’s establishment in order to inspect the achievements of a spirit of fooling allowed to run riot and backed by lavish expenditure.  Respectable visitors were always welcomed, and the more amazement they manifested at Mr. Baker’s masterpieces the better pleased was the gentle hearted creator and proprietor of this little world turned topsy-turby.  He might have spent his money worse.  (Tuesday, January 17, 1888, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

T. Smith and the other of Rev. J. A. Boyce.  The earlier part of Mr. Doud’s life, until he was 50 years of age, was devoted to clearing up a farm and cultivating it.  Without capital other than his own energy and labor he turned about 100 acres of forest into well-fenced fields in a good state of cultivation, with abundant fruit trees and good buildings.  In 1865 he sold his farm and engaged in mercantile business.  This was at a time when prices were much higher than they are now and just before the great decline came.  Shrewd business men said he would fail, but he prospered.  He became a Christian convert in 1842, and from that time was a devoted, active member of the Baptist Church.  In business he was strictly honest, prompt and of indomitable persistence against adversity.  He was always considerate of the poor and liberal in benevolent works.  He took a lively interest in religious and political affairs and was of such quick perception that his upright spirit naturally led him to the right side of all mooted questions.  His funeral was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o’clock, and it was largely attended.  (Tuesday, February 14, 1888, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. John Gass
Last Wednesday Mr. John Gass, a well-known and respected citizen of Delmar, died at the residence of his nephew, Mr. Charles Copestick, after an illness of about three months, at the age of 79 years.  Mr. Gass had been declining in health for about two years.  Mr. Gass was born at Annan, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, January 3, 1809, and he was the eldest of 14 children.  As a youth he worked in his father’s shop, where he learned the trade of a pattern-maker, and he became a very expert workman.  In 1833 Mr. Gass was married at Manchester, England, to a sister of the late Charles Copestick, of Delmar.  In 1849 he came to Philadelphia, where he got a job as patternmaker in Merrick’s machine-shop.  Here he remained for 17 years, and he was the workman among all the others who was entrusted with the difficult modeling and mechanical draughting.  It is stated that Mr. Gass did much of the work in modeling the machinery for the Monitor, Merrimac, and other war vessels.  During these years Mr. Gass had gained a competency, and in 1866 he moved to London, Ontario, where he was also engaged in a machine-shop for several years.  There his wife died, and soon after his only son also died.  Mr. Gass was offered the foremanship of the shop and its 300 workmen if he would remain at London.  But being alone in the world, he decided to come to the home of his brother-in-law, Mr. Copestick, and accordingly he came to Delmar in 1871, where he remained until his death.  Mr. Gass was a general favorite, and he was familiarly known to many as “Uncle John.”  By his gentlemanly bearing and genial nature he won numerous close friends and kept them.  His word was as good as his bond, and his heart was always open to the needy and unfortunate.  The funeral was held at the Stony Fork Baptist church last Friday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. A. B. Browe.  (Tuesday, February 21, 1888, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
