Tribute to the Late Dr. Fager

Editor Harrisburg Telegraph : Occasionally the power
of friend-winning is given to a man or woman to an unusual
degree. Sometimes we call it personal magnetism, this
quality that draws and holds us ; more often we do not name
it, we only know that he or she is our friend and the friend
of many others.

Perhaps we take that friendship for granted until the
ties that bind us are broken. Then we know that it is not
what the one who is gone was to the community, what he
was in his profession, in his church, in his social life, that
we mourn — but what he was to us personally.

There are many in all classes and of all ages in Harris-
burg today who so mourn Dr. Fager.

The children in the school house in Walnut street will
miss "their Doctor," who always had a smile and a cheery
word for them as they passed his house. Each recurring set
of little ones, during the years that he was on the School
Board, fearlessly took their troubles to him or besought fa-
vors, knowing him their friend.

Many a teacher, too, feels that he or she has lost a
friend, one whose interest and staunchness could be relied
upon in times of stress.

THE BUFFINGTON FAMILY

Who can count the homes of poverty and sickness where
there is sorrow today because no more will "the Doctor"
come to them to bring healing with no thought of return ?

Perhaps more than others physicians come in close
touch with humanity, but there are few even in their profes-
sion who won the love and trust of their patients as did Dr.
Fager. He was not just the doctor in whose skill to cure
they had confidence ; he was the friend on whom they un-
loaded their burdens, certain of his sympathy and willing-
ness to help.

Especially was he a friend to young men. Many, not
his patients, sought his advice when in trouble, or enjoyed
an hour from time to time in his office listening to his tales
of an earlier Harrisburg or laughing over his merry yet keen
comments on current happenings.

Humorous, cheerful, with an intense love of life, and
a broad understanding of its trials and temptations that
made him charitable to the failings of men and women
around him, he had the rare power to cure depression. T Ic
gave what was more than medicine to the body — he helped
those who came to him discouraged to get a new grip on
life.

So it is not what Dr. Fager was to education, to bus-
iness, to science in this community that will linger longest
in the memories of those who knew him well, but what he
meant to them as a tried and true friend.

The death of Charles Buffington Fager, whose funeral
took place yesterday, leaves a vacancy in the community
which will long be felt, not only by his immediate friends,
but by the public whom he served so faithfully in various
capacities. He has been especially missed in the School
Board, of which he was for many years a most prominent
137

and active member and to which he declined a re-election
on account of failing health. Personally and socially Dr.
Fager was a lovable man and among those who mourn his
loss is the writer of this brief but heart-felt tribute to lhs

memory.
