Af ter a long illness OH ver Benschoter died last week Tuesday at his home io Center Chain, Minn., and was burled on Wednesday at the cemetery there. His son, Grant, and two daughters, Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Holman, attended the funeral. Mis other children had been with him at various times during the year. Mr, Benschoter was one of the oldest and one of the best known of the pioneers of Kossuth. He was born in New York, Oct. 2.1 1 1810» his parents coming to Ohio the next year, Where he lived until 1850, when he came to Delaware county, Iowa, and the spring following to Algona. He opened his blacksmith shop at once, the first Algona or the county had. In 1858 he built the big frame house which stood so many years on the corner where the John Grove home now is^a handsome home in those days. In 18oO he was elected sheriff of the county against Geo. Blottenberger by a vote of 87 to 10. In 1801 he was re-elected by a vote of 61 to 20, and in 1803 by a unanimous vote of 00. These totals at the polls suggest the declining population of the years of the war in the county. His successor Was Samuel Reed, and his was John M. Pinkorton. In 1801 Mr. Benschoter had pre-empted the farm he afterwards moved onto in Portland—now Plum Creek—near Thos. Gilbride's. Here he became a farmer and here he lived until a few years ago when he sold to P. Kain and bought a small place near Fairmont. He has been an occasional visitor in Algona since that time, but the increasing burdens of old age—he was nearly 80 when he died—kept him closely at home. Mr. Benschoter will long be remembered by the early settlers as a genial, industrious, and valued pioneer. And now that he is gone his memory will live in his children, who are among the best known of the county's citizens. He was married in 1S3G in Ohio to Martha Kemp, who died in 1859 leaving six children. Of these Mrs. A. L. Seeley, Mrs. E. N. Weaver, Mrs. Smith Carlisle of Whittemore, and Grant Benschoter are living in the county, while George died at Little Bock, Ark., in 1803, a member of the famous 32d Iowa regiment the Kossuth boys enlisted in. In 1802 Mr. Benschoter was married to Sarah Grose, daughter of another pioneer, and ten children resulted' from this union. Fourteen children are now living to mourn the death of a father. At the old settlers' meeting six of the pioneers were added to the death roll for the year just passed. Mr. Benschoter begins the list of a new year. Money.

Blaclcford Will Celebrate '1 heir Golden Wedding SText Saturday-Mr, and Mrs. Abel Wooster Passed the Plf ty-nille Post Last Week. Invitations are out for a reception in honor of the fiftieth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. J, E. Blackford which will occur Saturday. Fifty years ago these honored pioneers of. Kossuth joined hearts and hands back' in St. Joseph county, Indiana, 40 years ago within a few days they came to-Algona, and now in a cheerful old age with their children about them they will receive the congratulations of friends and neighbors over their arrival at an anniversary so rarely reached. No one of the pioneers talks more pleasantly of early times than Mr. Blackford, and to THE UPPER DES MOINES reporter, who visited him yesterday, he gave many interesting reminiscences of his early life, He was only 20 years old when married, being born Jan. 4, 1825, in Warren county, Ohio, while Mary M, Call was two years younger, born June 9,1827, In Geaugy county, Ohio, Both had moved to Indiana and there met, Ten years later with two boys added to the family they set out with an ox team to travel to' Algona, The reporter inquired about the team, but • -Mr, Blaokford said he did not want it j \ntloned that on the way he traded ' i good oxen for a worthless span of > -" • is. They crossed the Mississippi ' " ' >iitou, and then following Judge '"•' Kdireotions came to Mason City ; - glear Lake, Here Capt, Hewitt • - ; ' -5hem there was no settlement at ' Algona, that he knew the country, find that there was no one on the river. At that they followed down t}ie Boone river and canie to Humboldt, and from there to Algopa, arriving in October, J855. ' In this long journey they had usually camped out nights, only getting under a roof in l?ad weather, By strange coincidence they spent the fli-et night in the cabin they afterwards bought and standing on the exact spot where they b,a,ve lived t^iese 40 years, IB speaking of 'Jiie marriage Mr, BlacMora recalled an awusipg couplet, wh.lw he says he always credited to Judge Ca.ll, When he was married Sofcuyler Colfax wa.s editing the St. >. ,* ,, T,—j-i... ft strong whig was a.n' aboil- ,,,,iey man, The nw * a charged them witft reajly favor- ipg>e annWlon of Tpxae because by had to go 40 miles between voters in his canvass. For many years he has been master of the state grange, besides holding county offices. But all his honors and successes of the 40 years will not bring him and Mrs. Blackford the real enjoyment of this golden anniversary, reached in good health and spirits with their six children all alive and all with them,:surrounded by the friends of a lifetime, and cheered on by the God speeds of the growing population of a community they helped to found.

ERQDUCER ' fSk CONSUMER Another Golden Weddlne. A small company of relatives and friends gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Durant last Saturday evening to assist Mr. and Mrs. Abel Wooster of Riverdale to remember their fiftieth anniversary. A cheerful company, appropriate presents, and gene"al good.wishes to these worthy pioneers marked an enjoyable occasion. Mr. Wooster was born March 8, 1819, in Swanzey, New Hampshire, and Harriet Seals Jan. 31,1825, in Chesti- field in that state. They grew up together in the same neighborhood and were married Sept. 22, 1845, For 16 years they lived on the farm Mr. Wooster was born on, and then following the western movement came to Jones county, Iowa, and four years later to Kossuth county, where they took the farm they have occupied for 80 years. Six children have come to them, Mrs. A. H, Darant, Charles, Edward, Liddie, Merton, and Lawrence Wooster. Mr, and Mrs. • Wooster have been among the county's best citizens, and their oh" iron have all become active and earnest workers in the county. They have enjoyed the esteem of all and reach this privileged period, of their lives honored and 'respected. That they may have many more years of health and enjoyment in reward for their well spent lives will be the wish of all who know them. BEOWNELii has the up-to-date line of shoes.
