The bride is the former Evelyn Cink, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Cink, and the groom is a son of George Ferstl. Rufus Marlow, Born At Burt, Dies: Minnesota Lone Rock—Hugh, Lem, and Doll Marlow have received copies of a Minnesota newspaper published at Sebeka, Minn., or thereabouts, giving the following selected facts concerning the recent death of their brother Rufus N. Marlow, who died in sleep in the early morning Saturday, May 29, at his farm home. Mr. Marlow had seemed in good health, and had plowed the day before. About 9:30 a. m. ncMghbor boys went to his home and rapped at the door. When they got no response they looked in the window, and saw Mr. Marlow lying on a davenport. They then went back and reported what they had seen, and on investigation his lifeless body was discovered. He had been 'living ' alone since death of his wife last October. The authorities wore notified, and Coroner Parker of Sebeka, found death due to a coronary condition, a heart ailment. Mr. Marlow was born September 20, 1874, at Burt, son of Edward and Mary Marlow. There he grew to manhood, and on January 27, 1897, was married to Margaret Hutchinson at Algona. Mr. Marlow lived in Iowa until he moved with his family to Alberta, Minn., where he lived until moving to a farm near Sebeka in 1927. Eight daughters and five sons survive: Mrs. Elma Russell, of Kensington, Minn.; Mrs. Esther Kussotz, Sebeka; Mrs. Marjoric Libra, Detroit, Mich.; Mrs. Bernice Rinke, Backus, Minn.; Mrs. Myrtle Bennett, Chokio, Minn.; Mrs. Ruth McAllister, LaPorte, Minn.; Marguerite Wallatz, Morris. Minn.; Mrs. Helen Sycks, of Backus; Arthur, Browerville, Minn.; Harley, Deer River, Minn.; Dennis, Chokio; Walter, Backus; and John, LaPorte. Two sisters and six brothers, jKatherine Neitzel, Burt, Harriet Hawks, Spirit Lake, Lemuel, Hugh, and Dell, Lone Rock, Burton and Edwin, Burt, and Ben, Redfield, Minn., survive, also a large number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. At death Mr. Marlow was 73. His funeral services wore held Wednesday, June 2, out-of-town relatives attending as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Marlow, Lone Rock; Mr. and Mrs. Lemuel Marlow and Dell Mar- News Of Welch, Former Dairy Expert Here Many of the older farmers—J. M. Patterson, W. C. Nelson, C. R. Schoby, for examples—and some townsmen, particularly .Mads Christiansen of the Algofia creamery, will remember R» R. Welch, who in 1913 was sent here to conduct a federal agricultural extension experiment in development of a dairy farming community. Mr. Welch remained here three years, afteY Which the project was removed to Grove City, Pa. Thereafter some news Of Mr. Welch drifted back to Algbnd now and then, but it was meager, and only now his life activities have become known here through a lengthy newspaper, clipping forwarded by Roy J. Keen, former east of Algona farmer. Occasion for the Welch newspaper story is the fact that he is retiring? as of June 30 as Profes-.. sor of Dairy Husbandry at the Pennsylvania State college, located at the city of State College, and his retirement will conclude 40 vears of extension work, including the years spent in Algona. mention of which is made in the clipping. During his long activity in extension work Welch traveled all over the country in all kinds of conveyances, and he estimates that he covered at least a half million miles. He remarked that in his time 'Bessie the Cow' had come a long way from a 250 pounds of fat record to the present 342 pounds average. Welch's work here did much to increase dairying in the Algona community and by example in the rest of the county. During most of his stay here he edited a dairy column in the Advance. Welch was married while he was here, and he and his wife have two sons, one a doctor at State College, the other night manager of a Philadelphia hotel.
