Mr. J. E. Creswick, formerly an engraver for the Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewellry Co., passed away recently after a few days' illness.

Mr. Creswick was known to many of the co-workers of the institution, having been employed as an engraver, and for 45 years made the daily trip back and forth from Alton to attend his duties. This was continued up to a few years ago when his advanced age required him to discontinue these trips.


Alton Engraver, 87, Dies.
J. E. Creswick, a veteran engraver, 87, died yesterday at his home in Alton after a few days' illness with pneumonia. For forty-five years Creswick was an engraver for Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Company, St. Louis.
One of his famous works is an engraving of Wagmor Crow, which is on exhibition at Washington University.
He was the father of Mrs. Daisy Creswick Rice, inspector of hygiene of the Alton public schools. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon in Alton.— News Clipping.


The family of Mr. J. E. Creswick deeply appreciate your kind expression of sympathy and extend their thanks for floral offering sent by his former co-workers.

Diamond Salesman Found Dead in Basement in St. Louis, Mo., Believed to Have Been Murdered.

St. Louis, Nov. 20.—Frank J. Gangle, for several years a diamond expert and salesman in the employ of Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewelry Co. and the Loftis Bros. Jewelry Co., was found dead Thursday morning in the basement of a building in course of construction at 1509 Washington Ave. His neck was broken and there was a bruise over the right eye. The fact that jewelry which he was known to have worn and a packet which he carried are missing, leads to the belief that he was robbed and murdered.

Gangle was found lying under the bulkhead opening of the first floor. His body had fallen 15 feet to the concrete floor of the basement. The opening was some distance from the pavement and access to it was difficult because of quantities of building material lying about. It is not considered probable that he could have wandered into the building and fallen through the hole. The theory of the police is that he was knocked down and robbed, and that the robbers, probably not intending to kill him, threw him through the opening in the floor to facilitate their escape.

An inquest was held and the verdict was that the injuries that caused his death were received in an unknown manner. Detectives are working on the case.

Gangle had boarded at 3677 Cook Ave. off and on for nine years. He has a brother, Charles, and a sister somewhere in the west.

The body of the man was still warm when found, and it was hurried to the City Dispensary in the hope that life had not entirely departed from it, but the doctors there pronounced him dead.

The Phoenix-Like Rise of the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co.

St. Louis, Mo., Dec. 25.—The Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co. have settled themselves temporarily in the old location of A. Kurtzeborn & Sons, 410 and 412 North Broadway, opposite their former quarters. The company’s establishment was burned out at 4.30 o’clock A. M. Sunday. By 6 o’clock P. M. of the same day Goodman King, secretary of the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co., had made arrangements for the sale or rather amalgamation of the stock and good will of A. Kurtzeborn & Sons with his firm. It is stated, as showing the enterprise of the Mermod & Jaccard Co., that negotiations commenced at 8.30 o’clock A. M. Sunday. By the time stated above, formal verbal terms had been agreed upon, and they were formally ratified on Monday morning, when canvas signs in front of the store of A. Kurtzeborn & Sons announced that henceforth that place was the headquarters of the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co.

The terms of the sale were private, and in conversation with The Circular representative, Goodman King said: “We do not care just at this time to tell what the terms of sale were. You can say they were very satisfactory to all parties concerned.”

The building on their former location, northwest corner of Broadway and Locust St., will be rebuilt quickly, and the company intend shortly to emerge from their temporary embarrassment with a greater establishment than ever. By the terms of the sale with A. Kurtzeborn & Sons, that have been given to the public, the partners of this concern became identified as stockholders in the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co.

The total amount of insurance carried was $441,000, divided as follows: On building, $112,500; on rents, $24,000; on stock under general firm, $256,700; on furniture and fixtures, $47,750. The adjustment of this insurance is progressing satisfactorily, and considerable salvage will accrue to the insurance companies from melted gold, silver, etc., found in the ruins. The jewelry firm had 10 fire-proof vaults in their basement, in which were stored the diamonds and other precious stones and valuable watches and watch movements. Five of the vaults have been opened, and they disclose practically no damage to the contents.

The firm have necessarily had considerable trouble and annoyance in consequence of Christmas goods purchased being in the burned building. With commendable enterprise they have adjusted satisfactorily all of these purchases, however, in some cases giving substitutes for the originals, in others returning the money.
