The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Feb. 22,1938 M»E. STARKS DIES IN KANSAS Daughter of Pioneer Irv ington Family and Sister of G. W. Sample News of the death of Mrs. Fran Me Sample Starks has been receiv cd by her brother, Grant Sample here. Death occurred ftt her home in lola. Kansas, on February 4 Mrs. Starks was born at Irvmjrton Iowa, Sept. 11, 1866. a daughter o! Mr an3 Mrs. D. W. Sample, well known pioneers. She was married to W. E. Starks at Irvmgton August 3. 1885. Four children were born: C. B. Stnrks of Larncd. Kansas; Harry M. Starks of Dodge City, Kansns; Mrs: Grace Heath of Billings, Montana; and Leona fcd- wina, who died in infancy. THe family moved to lola in 1903. Her husband died June 25, 1926. Since his death Mrs. Starks has personally looked after hisi large business interests. Mrs. Starks, who was a schoolmate of this writer was of a pleasant disposition and endeared herself to all with whom ehe came In contact, nnd was held Jn high esteem by all. A clipping from an lola newspaper says: "The seriousness of her Illness failed trt reflect itself in her attitude toward life. She put a great deal into life and In the same mensure reaped rich returns. Her friends worn a source of much enjoyment to her. She was a Matron of the Enstern Stnr in 1912 nnd was prominent in women's clubs. She was a member of the First Presbyterian church." Besides her children she leaves five sisters nnd one brother: Mrs. W. W. Jones of loin: Mrs. J. G. Walters of Chicago: Mrs. D. E. Rnn- ey of Butterfield, Minn.: Mrs. R E. Johnson of Forman, N. D.; Mr?!. Fred Arnold of Minneapolis, nnd G. W. Sample of Algona; nnd six grandchildren. Who cnres nbout the right-of- way If an accident depends on it? Why worry nbout the right-of-way at nn intersection, crossroad, private driveway, or other road en- trnnce when a few seconds' delay will eliminate the possibility of a smash-up? Give the right-of-wny to the other fellow and let him be on his way. In another two second* you yourself will be on the safe side. That is courteous driving. It is the safest way. To drive openly nnd defiantly headlong into an intersection simply because you have the right-of- way is not an act of courtesy nor is it safe driving. | I Just ordinary good manners In driving an automobile will prevent as m«ny accidents as reasonable care. The two go hand in hand In like WEEKS NEWS CVKHENT EVENTS PHttTOGRAPHVD FOK The Upper Des Moines It's NOT TOO EARLY to begin looking over the beautiful new offerings at the Chrischilles Store Even though the cold winds whistle around the corners and snow flakes whirl around your ears, it's none too early to begin looking for new things at this store.
