A. Patterson, pioneer settler of Lu Verne, were held at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon. Her residence of more than 40 years in this county had made her a host of friends who were present in number which taxed the •capacity of the church. The services wer e In charge of her pastor, the Rev. A. J. Koonce. A choir sang The Glory Song and Some Day the Silver Cord Will Break, favorites of the deceased. Opal White, a granddaughter from Rochester, Minn., assisted with the music. The pall bearers were six sons-in-law: W. B. Mason, I. H. Benedict, J. H. White, F. I. Chapman, F. G. Hagist, and J. L. Llchty. The floral offerings were beautiful. The following obituary was read: Mrs. W. A. Patterson, whose maiden name was Keziah Hardesty, was bor n in Clinton county, Ohio, March 5, ai844, and died at her home in Lu Verne May 22, 1931. She was married to W. A. Patterson at Monticello, Iowa, January 1, 11862, Mr. and Mrs. Patterson settled In the vicinity of Gait, Wright county, in 1,880 before that town was established. After a number of years during which they experienced the pleasures and encountered the difficulties of pioneer life on Iowa's prairies, they moved to Lu Verne in 1889. On January 1, 1912, Mr. and Mrs. Patterson celebrated their golden wedding. Mr. Patterson died In 1917. Mrs. Patterson, who was an active member of the local Presbyterian church, possessed outstanding Christian virtues. She took an active Interest In all departments of church work while her health would permit, and her many friends will increasingly realize with the passing of the days how tenacious a hold she had established in her quiet way upon their affections. The wound caused by her departure will be slow in healing. There 'survive one son, Charles, and five daughters: Mrs. Linnle White, Rochester; Mrs. Etta Benedict and Mrs. Emma Chapman, Lu Verne; Mrs. Minnie Hagist. Chicago; and 'Mrs- Lulu Lichty, Lu Verne. TJiere are 18 grand children and 30 great grand children. Burial was made in the family lot Jn the Lu Verne cemetery.

Two Fish Lassoed, But the "Big One" Got A way Again Two unusual fishing stories are being told by members of a northern Minnesota party last week which consisted o£ H. B. Rlst, G. S. Buchanan, Bert Deal, C, R. LaBarre, Dr. L. O. Baker, and T. H. Holmes. The group spent the week at-Lake Winnlbfgosh. One of the stories concerns two fish caught by Mr. Deal, who with Mr. Bucnanan and a guide was trolling. Mr. Deal got a strike and the guide stopped the boat while Mr. Buchanan reeled in his line. The scrap the fish was putting U)> indicated a whopper. After an extended effort Mr. Deal reeled in and when Mr. Buchanan leaned over to inspect the catch He was astounded to see two struggling fish instead of one. Then the fish ducked. Mr. Buchanan got only a fleeting glance, and thinking he might be mistaken, said nothing. Mr. Deal got them back to the surface alter another struggle, and sure enough ther e were two, both of good size, but dangling some. feet below them were minnow and hook, the fish having been lassoed in line tangles three feet apart! Then, later, Mr. Buchanan had the distinction o f losing "the big fish that got away." He had a strike, but at first thought the hook was caught in a snag. The boat was stopped and Mr. Deal reeled in. Sudden cleveiopements then demonstrated that a really big fish had been hooked, and alter an extended fight a. giant northern pike was brought to the surface and landed in the boat. The guide guessed the weight at Uig pounds. The fish didn't .quit fighting after it was landed, and the guide suggested that Mr. Deal kill it by hitting it on 'thp head, whereupon Mr. Deal accommodated with a ginger- ale Dottle, the only "weapon" at hand. This stunned the fish, which was strung on a patent, safety-pin type of stringer. After a few minutes the fish started struggling again, and Mr. Deal again usecl the ginger-ale bottle. This quieted the brute for another period, and when he started up again Mr. Buchanan took the bottle and completed the job of killing him. And then, after the fishing was ended and the boat beached and the string pulled out for exhibition of "the big one" it was discovered that his weight had sprung the patent stringer and he was gone! ! !

Goeders of Algona is a member, apportioned divisions of the work In the state to the five members for future study. Mr. Goeders Is to have charge of the fish propagation and distribution, and is to acquaint himse'.f with the work done and to be done In the state, so as to have an intimate knowledge of the prob-1 loms of that department for use by' the commission in forming its. policies.
