Another one of ' Allamakee county's old settlers has passed away. Charles Burnham, on Thursday, Sept. 10th, 1891, at bis home two talles northeast of Hardin, of dropsy with other complications. Deceased was born near Woodstock. Champaign Co., Ohio, January 28rd. 1881, where he grew to manhood. He omlgrnted to lown In 1855 and located in Franklin township on tho farm where he died. Ho returned to Ohio in 1858 and was married to Elizabeth Dee, nnd in 1859 came back to Iowa to reside in tho home that he had prepared. Four children were tho fruits of this union. The following named survive him: Hilas C. Burnham and Mrs. Elma M. Hlnraan. On May 24th, 1879, his wifo died. On May 22d, 1881, ho was again married to Mis. A. D. Amos, who still survives him, and has been his constant and ever faithful companion, administering to his wants during his affliction to the Inst moment. He has been a groat sufferer at times for the past two yean, gradually failing, never complaining. Of so patient and jovial a'disposition that many of his most intimate friends were not awaro that the end was so near. Ho has hold a number of offices of trust In the township, having been olected assessor and collector of taxes for a number of terms and lins held the office of justice of tho pcaco for almost eighteen yours, which tolls more plainly than words the estoom in which he was hold by those who knew him best. Ho was conservative in all things, but whon acting in the capacity of judge between litigants, or the trial of a criminal, he rose superior to any local excitement or personal prejudico and became the just judge. There aro but few in the township whoso advice has been so often sought and freely glvon. His death will be deeply felt throughout the community as his circlo of friends seemed almost without limit, for ho was a man of a flno social nature. A kind husband and father, a good neighbor, a good friend has loft us. Poa'co to his ashos. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Hardin, ROT. J. LitMor officiating. E. B. L.

Sho had every nttcution that could bo givon hor. There wore two doctors who did all that brman skill could suggest, but without avail; for whon our Tioavenly Father calls the summons must bo obeyed.

Although the suffered n great deal of pain she never murmured or complained. At hor request hor remains were brought to Portland and laid at rest in tho River View cemetery, in a beautiful spot.

Look at what you gain on The Standard Its shuttle makes only ONE MOTION to make a stitch, while the Domestic, New Home, White, Davis, Singer and all long shuttle maohines make FOUR (4) MOTIONS, two stops and two starts with the shuttle to make one stitoh. The Standard needle makes only TWO MOTIONS to make a stitch, while on all long shuttle maohines the needle makes FOUR (4) MOTIONS to make one stitoh. It sew from One-Third to One-Half faster than any long shuttle machine. Its whole shuttle raoe is SOLID STEEL and can be replaced, while on other maohines the shuttle raoe is ONLY CAST IRON and cannot be replaced. The Standard with its almost noiseless shuttle, whioh turns round like a wheel, with no stop or jar motion; its great speed; its perfeot ease in operation; its perfeot tension and elastic stitoh; its powerful feed; with its Steel Setof Foot Attachments, combined with its great simplicity and almost endless durability makes it by far the Best and Cheapest sewing machine in the world, and no one should think of buy ing a sewing maohine without investigating the principles of the Standard Rotary Shuttle and giving the maohine a trial.
