The illness of J. EL Wafreti, whldh was noted two weeks ago, resulted fatally Saturday at 12:30 p. m. t and he was buried 1ft the Algoha cemetery, as he had wished, Sunday at 2 o'clock. The Masonic Order, of which he waa an active member, conducted the exercises, Rev. Stevens speaking briefly and appropriately to the large gather* ing of old settlers and personal friends who met to pay a last tribute. Overwork—self-imposed—at last broke down a vigorous frame, and he died after a brief illness which first assumed a serious aspect at his home in Spoarfish, S. D., a few weeks ago, and which re 4 appeared after he had returned to Algona to be amidst the scenes of his more active life and among the friends of his more vigorous manhood. Had he lived he would have been "76 years old today. He was anxious at the last to reach his birthday, and inquired often how far the 4th of September was away. He was born in Eden, Erie county, N. Y., in 1820. He attended district school until he was 11 years old, and then after the manner of so many of his generation circumstances forced him to meet life on his own responsibility. He came to Ohio with his parents, and in 1846 to Wisconsin. Here the widowed mother and eight children located in Hubbard township, Dodge county. Here he was married the following year to Mis^ Augusta B. Horton, who survives him after nearly 60 years of happy married life. Here also he took building and contracting for his trade. He had when 21 jrears of age been thrown from a barn at a rais- MIS TICKET IS A f OMUL Some extra qualities in Children's Hose for the same price as is usually asked for inferior grade.

During this time he was with- his older brother, a physician, and read medicine diligently, expecting to enter the profession. But once able to be out he lost interest in medicine. From this accident dated hls,lifelong ardent opposition to the liquor traffic and to the drinking habit. Until 1859 he worked at his trade and as millwright. In that year he moved to Arcadia, Wis.; where later fire destroyed his home and several thousand dollars worth of property, including a history of Dodge county in manuscript he had completed. In 1862 he went to Eau Claire, and in 1866, loading his possessions on a flat boat, he came to Dubuque, sold his boat, travelled by rail to Iowa Falls, and then by wagons to Algona. In Algona he bought THE UPPER DBS MOINES of Mrs. Lizzie B. Read for $600, and his son, Robert, who had had some experience, took charge of the mechanical work while he mingled editing and carpentering, the latter paying the expenses of the paper in those years of hardship. His first work was on the old : original water mill. He also worked on the John G. Smith store building, south of the court house. Under his vigorous management, however, the paper soon became self-sustaining; and with the postofflce, which was put in his charge in 1869, occupied all his energies, In 1872 he discarded his old hand press and at an expense of $2,000 put in the Potter power press still in use and doing good service. In 1875 THE UPPER DBS MOINES was sold, and for several years he engaged in various enterprises, being at one time an active citizen of Swan Lake in Emmet county. In 1887, with his son E. H. Warren, he started the West Bend Tribune, a successful paper, which he left to do editorial work on the Rapids City, S. D., Daily Republican in 1888. In January, 1889, be went to Spearfish, S. D., where he started the Queen City Mail, which for five years was a successful daily, and which he was editing at the time of his final illness, the daily edition having been dropped on account of the recent financial stringency. • Mr. Warren was always a pioneer, He enjoyed the wild, new life of the frontier, and kept always in the van of westward settlement, He was a man suited to the hard work of subdueing the wilderness, 'rugged in frame, undaunted in purpose, frank* .generous, determined, and outspoken. No task was too great for him and no misfortune daunted him, A single inpidept illustrates his prevailing characteristics. During his early days in Algona he had a leg broken while working in Ambrose A, Call's timber. He came home alone, set the bones himself, edited THE UPPER DES MOINES without a break, Robert bringing the lopal gossip of the town to be worked up, and was soon up and about, He belonged to a generation of men the remnants of whom are fast disappearing, men who faced life seriously at an age when boys now are hardly out of knee breeches, who cleared forests, fought Indians, took a hand at all trades, educated themselves, made up in later years what they missed in early opportunities, cultivated the pugged virtues of rugged life, and laid the foundations . of the marvelous growth of the west. Mr. Warren did not know what rest and recreation for their own sake were, He was no older at 75 so far as' his own plans and purposes were qonoerned than at 86, Sis final illness dates, from his Determination to publish a daily for a week/while th.e pl&Qk Hills soldiers' and sailors' reunion was held at Spew* fisg, a daily for wbioh. be did. all tbe wprk bis son, beipg in attendance oa tbe state Masonic gathering at Pierre and pn a visit to Algowa at tbe time, Hie awbitipu as as. editor{ stopping at Ms wwb hV neve.?, fip , Warrep ie t . of THE UPPJ?R Pus Moips, taflrop ,e»t of tfr fvOa- Mr. gall, Sfe BvdMfii H6 tfiSdfe tt knowftso^er tn€ 6tftt§, wfte Wffiself widely fcfibwn ftfto*f ftewsp-ftffef ttaeflj fthd his death will be sincerely moWnea by &11, who remaifl of the little band o! frontlet editors who struggled Itt' the year's between the »&? aha the gfasshotipief 8 to keep jourtaalista Wive ifi nortnferfi lowft.. , Three children were born to Mf< attd Mfrs.

MnsotUc Resolutions. Prudence lodge, of which Mr. Warren was one of the earliest members, adopted resolutions as follows! Whereas, The Most Worshipful, the Gfahd Master, who presides over the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge in the Great Beyond, and over the destiny of nations, in his ereat wisdom has taken from us our esteemed brother, J. H. ' Warren, who passed over the river Aug. 81, 1895, at the residence of his son, R. B. Warren, in this city, and, Whereas, Our late brother was an earn est Mason, always ready and willing to defend the principles taught by that ancient order; the Masons' widow and orphan in distress did not go hungry, if such necessity was known to him and within the length or his cable tow. Therefore, be it Resolved, By Prudence Lodge, No. 205, A. F. & A. M., nt Algona, Iowa, that we sincerely regret the loss of our deceased brother; we sympathise with his widow and children in their bereavement and in tbe loss of a loving father and devoted husband. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions bo spread upon the records of the lodge and a copy delivered to our deceased brother's widow. D. A. HAOQAIID, C. 0. CHUBB, _ D. S. FOUD. Tribute of a. Friend. Will. F. Smith pays the following tribute to the memory of Mr. Warren in his Webster City Journal: "He was an early settler at Algona and one of the pioneer newspaper men of the northwest. The writer knew him well, and at one time was a member of his household for a year or more. He was a kind, indulgent husband and father, a strong, energetic writer, and a man who did much for the advancement of northwestern Iowa. He was postmaster at Algona during the Grant administration, and leaves-hosts of old-time friends to mourn his death. He leaves a wife, two sons, and a daughter.
