ERASTUS VAN HOOD
We doubt that any man in our wide
county and its borders was more
helpful or more truly beloved than Dr.
E. Van Hood, who Friday afternoon,
just before two o'clock, passed from
a life of devotion and service into rest
and reward everlasting.
Erastus Van Hood was born in
Hurtsboro, Ala., April 11, 1861, He
waf. reared to young manhood in Har Harris
ris Harris county, Ga. He chose the medical
profession for his work in life and
after taking a course in medicine in
Atlanta attended and graduated at the
College for Physicians and Surgeons
in Baltimore. In 1884 he opened his
practice in Oxford, Sumter county,
come to Ocala two years later and has
bt en with us ever since.
Dr. Hood was peculiarly adapted to
his profession, possessing an intuitive
ability to solve its most intricate
pioblems, and being possessed by a
spirit of love for humanity that inspir inspired
ed inspired him with the greatest desire to
save life or relieve pain. He put his
httirt in his work and had such skill in
carrying it out that his step on the
threshold of an afflicted home was
. like that of a ministering angel.
Dr. Hood is one of the men to whom
was due breaking the great scourge
cf yellow fever and banishing it from
t'.-L South, which had cowered in an an-inal
inal an-inal terror of its coming for more
ti an two centuries. He was a med med-inl

war and served in the Santiago cam campaign.

added to the noble little band of sur
geons who cared for the fever-stricken
men who were isolated on an island in
Santiago harbor. Here heworked and
fought the disease, helping to save
some of our boys, helping to put
others in coffins to be taken away for
burial, for weeks during the terrible
summer that followed the capture of
the city. He was finally stricken him himself,
self, himself, but continued at work minister ministering

could no longer stand up. He had a
long and severe struggle with the
fever, but thanks to his strong consti constitution

ghost, andtho' he lived to help his
friends and his country for another
score of years, he never entirely re recovered

But during his sickness he had full op opportunity
portunity opportunity to observe the workings of
yellow fever, and when the mosquito mosquito-transmission
transmission mosquito-transmission theory was advanced he
was among the first to endorse it and
help put preventive measures against
the disease in operation.
In 1905, Dr. Hood was joined in
wedlock to Mrs. Louise B. Porter,
widow of Rev. J. C. Porter, to whom
during his lifetime Dr. Hood had been
a sincere friend, almost a brother. The
union was a happy one; these two
have been true helpmeets, and their
love and closely knit sympathy for
each other have been beautiful to see.
The incessant care and watchfulness
of Mrs. Hood over her none too robust
husband has probably aided him to
live longer and be a greater help to
Dr. Hood gave much time to un unpaid
paid unpaid public work. He was high in the
confidence of the state board of health,
and aided it greatly in its operations.
He was a member of the State Board
of Examiners for many years, his
feeble health compelling him to resign
only a few months ago. He was one
of the main stays of our hospital,
which was given care of the crippled
children of the state because of the
board's confidence in his skill and
kindness. His life was unceasingly
busy when he went away from Ocala,
it was generally to take medical or
surgical courses in the most advanced
schools, and wheJn he did permit him himself
self himself to rest for a few weeks it was
only to gather fresh strength for his
labor to humanity. His charity was
boundless how much time and work
he gave to the suffering who could not
pay will never be known until the re
cording angel hands in his final ac account
count account on the great judgment day. If
he ever refused a call for help it was
from sheer inability to answer it.
The loving care of his wife and
stepdaughters, his own skill in con conserving
serving conserving his strength while most bus busily
ily busily engaged, kept him with us longer
than had circumstances been different.
But the constant strain ever told and
at last became too much for him. The
gieat plague of influenza that spread
over the country last year probably
was the final burden that broke him
down. For weeks he was constantly
on the go. Nearly all the doctors in
this and neighboring counties were at
ono. time either in the army or down
sick, and this eood ohvsician tried to
do the work of half a dozen. He was
at work night and day. He had the
disease himself, but refused to yield
to it. He doctored himself he was one
of the few who can do that and
went on with his work, his limbs ach ach-inz

ease disease and its counteracting medicine;
his eyes burning from want of sleep.
He would come home from a long trip
out in the country, eat a few mouth mouthful
ful mouthful s of the dainty meals his faithful
helper always kept waiting for him,
lay down on the lounge for a few
minutes rest, and then get up and go

Many men and women are living to
day because Dr. Hood wore his life
out a year ago.
He pulled thru, and with the ending
of the epidemic and less work tried
to take a little rest. He went to Ashe Ashe-ville

and tried to take up his work again.
But his vitality was sapped and he
soon broke down. His wife took him
back to North Carolina, and there he
spent the summer and early autumn,
growing weaker, despite mountain air
and devoted attention. He suffered lit
tle pain; was only weak and tired.
With aching hearts his loved ones
realized that his work in this world
was done, and when the autumn chill
began to be felt in the mountains,
they brought him back home. Since
then weeks have slipped by, hardly
noticed by the sickttnan, who knowing
as well as anyone how steadily he
was passing down into the dark val valley,

on beyond he knew was either rest or
greater usefulness, and was content.
His mind was bright and clear almost
io the end. His weakness was so great
during the last few weeks that he
could not see his friends but a few
minutes at a time, but he always had
a bright smile for them and some of
the old-time vigor in his welcoming
