The county convention Friday was one of the shortest ever held In the county. It was spicy, however, for a few minutes. S. X. Way, when the roll was called for votes on representative, arose and withdrew his name, and Mr. Mayne did the same, leaving Gardner Cowles the field, and the nomination was soon made. What little excitement there was came when it was proposed that A. D. Clarke be allowed to select his own senatorial dele- and two hood, there being nine daughters, one dying very early in life Mrs. Hudson sent four sons and one' son-in-law to the army, and had thoiov of having thorn returned to her n.t the close of tho war. She came to Kossuth county in 1800, and has boon a resident over since. Her husband died 18 voars ago. Since that time she has made her home with her children Some three years ago she foil and since thon has been in an almost helpless condition. A number of years ago her eyesight failed and it was impossible for her to go about without help, blie always found willing hands to guide "urandnm" wherevor she wished to so, as long as she was permitted to walk about. Since last January she has found a comfortable home with her daughter, Mrs. Charlotte Goddon who never tired in making "mother's" lost days bright and comfortable. Surely all that loving bunds could do has boon done for her. Thus passes away a life filled only with good deeds, and one pi the oldest of Kossuth county's early sottlers. GKOIiaE STEWART DF.AD.
