When the trouble became aggravated, he decided to go to Arizona, where he had been only a few weeks before death came, at Phoenix, last Tuesday morning.

C. Penny Co., and P. J. Christensen came here to take active charge. During his years in Algona, Mr. Christensen was an outstanding community leader. He was active in Commercial Club work, and later served as a Chamber of Commence director. He was a member of the Congregational church, and active In Its work^ tt« gtso was a member of the Klwanis club, but had dropped his membership when his health required him to exert less energy in public affairs, and turn some I attention to the state of his own health. Hardly a civic activity In the 15 years that did not find Mr. Christensen a hard worker and active booster in its behalf. His passing leaves genuine sorrow In the hearts of all who knew and admired him, and deepest sympathy for the bereaved family.
