KUFUS W ALSTON'S LIFE KEOOKD. of a Well Known A Brief Obituary Kesldent Those who attended the funeral of Rufus Walslon at Rolfe, returned Friday. The following obituary is taken from the Rolfe Reveille: Died, on Tuesday, April 4, 1899, Rufus Walston, aged 50 years. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church on Thursday at 2 o'clock p. m., Rev. Primghar of Phoenix preaching the sermon, the Masonic and I. O. O. F. orders and the G. A. R. post taking part in the services. Interment was made in Clinton cemetery. Rufus Walston was born at Stockholm, St. Lawrence county, N. Y., in 1840. He enlisted in the loth New York volunteers when the war broke out and served two years, receiving wounds at the second battle of Fredricksburg. He came to Iowa in 1805 and lived in the state, with the exception of a few years in Chicago, to the time of his death. In 1866 he was united in marriage to Mrs. Gray of Algona, who survives him. The fruit of this union was three children, J. R. and F. C. Walston of Rolfe and Mrs. Henry Murray of Havelock. He also leaves one brother, Henry Walston of Algona. He was converted and united with the Methodist church of Havelock in 1894. About a year ago Mr. and Mrs. Walston m'Oved to Rolfe from Havelock, and not long after that the malady which caused his death manifested its presence. His passage to the great beyond was from suffering to peace, and this fact will assuage the sorrow of the bereaved ones, to whom will be extended the sympathy of the community. The Courier Gets n Nent und TellliiK Answer—Al. Is Snllsfled with Hie Governor. Algona Courier: " Shaw has demonstrated that he is a weak executive, and he has a mania for talking on the money question while his knowledge of it is very superficial." Well T don't knowl We well remember the winter that Leslie B. Shaw walked the ties from Fort Dodge out west to Calhoun and Pocahontas to take orders for fruit trees. He was a young man then and has grown up with the country since. The next spring the editor walked to LeMars, enrpute to Sioux City via Emmetsburg, Sioux Rapids and Cherokee. The editor had money enough to pay for a pre-emption filing on a piece of land in Palo Alto county and a couple of square meals on the way to Sioux City. The winter before Shaw didn't have oven that much money, had to hypothecate his fruit tree orders for his board. This last fall Shaw bought 1,200 acres of land and paid down with his name to a check while the editor could not buy a ten dollar lot at a tax sale. We don't want to hurt your feelings, but it strikes us that Gov. Shaw has quite a practical knowledge of the money question, and, pardon us further please, much more than thoso who have made a failure financially for a whole life time, and, if you will permit us again, when a poor country school master graduates into the position that our governor has in the councils of the most able financiers in the leading financial country in the world it is not too much for a state whose reputation he has thus been keeping to the front to do, to back him up with every vote and every good word in his favor that it can.
