Mrs. Brockey was born April 5, 1859. funeral services were held on Tuesday at. the Winnebago Lutheran church at 2 o*clock with the Rev. H. F. Huseth in charge and burial at Winnebago cemetery. Funeral for Swann, 87, Former Mason City Resident, Held OSAGE--Funeral services were held here Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Champion funeral home in charge of the Rev. John D. Kern of the Osage Baptist church for Henry A. Swann, 87, who died at a hospital in Mason City Sunday. He had been ill from How many times have you heard this passing remark by the man or the woman o£ the house who has just spent an hour or so thumbing through the newspaper? In a brief period one Mason City housewife, Mrs. Frank Zaruba, 1638 Pennsylvania avenue northeast, heard such a sentiment expressed. So one evening she sat down to check on the basis for it. Her findings are set forth in a report addressed by her, under date of Jan. 14, to Eye Observing, as follows: A Housewife Writes complications. Henry Swann was born near Beaver Dam, Wis., Dec. 12, 1849. He and his family came here from Minnesota in 1893 and he lived here until 1927 when his wife died and he went to Mason City to make his home with his daughters, Priscilla and Eunice Swann. Two daughters preceded him in death, Edith and Gladys. Besides his two daughters in Mason City he is survived by another daughter, Mrs, H. E. Walker of Duluth, Minn., and a son, Edward H. Swann of Osage; four grandchildren and seven great grandchildren; his brothers, Alfred Swann and' Edward E. Swann of Osage, Albert S w a n n of Sauk Center, Minn.; his sisters, Mrs. Francis Lewis of Caledonia, Minn., and Mrs. Anna Fessenmeyer of Des Moines. Burial will be in . the local cemetery beside his wife. Just lately I heard three different people say "There's nothing in the paper today." Going over one issue of the paper, I find this to read: 1. Martin Johnson, crash victim, dies. (Has been a scrapbook clipping for years now that my- girls ore growing up.) 2. Picture o£ the Morrow boy who found the beaten body of Charles Mattson. (Is anybody going to pay for this crime, as in the Lindbergh case?) 3. Colder weather. (Good news, for slushy weather means sickness at pur house.) · Pension Not Needed. 4. Pension for Mrs. Coblidge. (With her income that tight-fisted Calvin left her, I should think it would' gag her to use it, there being millions of undernourished children the government should help.) 5. KGLO (Having our radio on the "bum" it is only a sad reminder of the pleasure . we have had during the last year just gone by. Never had one before and may not be able to have this fixed for some time.) G. More about the kidnaped child's body. My own opinion was that something like this would happen when the father failed to Mrs. Arthur Rites to Be Held in Stacyville STACYVILLE -- Mrs. Edward Arthur .of Masonville died suddenly Saturday night, Jan. 16, at the home of her mother, Mrs. Thotruvs Kinney of Stacyville.
