Tlie Life and Services of a Woman Whose Ancestry Traces Baclc for a Period of TOO Years - Funeral Sermon Preached on Sunday. The funeral exercises in memory of Mrs Samuel Reed, whose death was noted last week, were to have been held Friday morning. Owing to the Btorm and the bad roads it was found necessary to postpone them, however, in order to reach the Irvington ceme- t«ry for the burial. Sunday afternoon a large audience gathered at the Methodist church and Rev. Southwell preached one of the ablest and most appropriate sermons of his pastorate in Algona in memory of the deceased. Mrs. Reed was one of the pioneers of the county. In 1853 she came with her husband to Marshall county and in the spring of 1858 to Kossuth. She lived the hard life of the frontier cheerfully, and courageously as the others did, did her life's work unflinchingly, bore a large family of 11 children, all but two of whom reached mature years and all of whom have born in their lives ample testimony to her faithfulness and zeal, and passed away in mature old age blessed by all. In outward incident there is little to relate of her. Part of Kev. Southwell's text was: "Their works do follow them." Her works are the outward symbol of a life well and earnestly spent. ' _,„ Mrs. Reed's maiden name was Ellen Bennett. Her mother's name was Margaret Fay, and Fay as a family __. _ 7 _ _ i 11_ ,*. n.t a*inoClT.1*\7 mother died while she was young and she came to America with a brother when she was 15 years of age. In 1841 she married Samuel Reed in Lincoln, 111 and for 55 years enjoyed a happy home life. Eight children survive her, all but Mrs. Burtis present at the funeral. James B. lives at Hardwick, Minn., and Mrs. G. C. Burtis near San Francisco, Gal., while John, B. *., Albert, Celestia, W. H., and Mrs. Lew Walker are well known residents of Aleona. Emmet Reed, the youngest son, was murdered in Taylor county. Bv curious coincidence Mrs. Reeds voungest brother was also murdered. No one can fully estimate the debt which is owed to the pioneers _ of the west. No one can fully appreciate all that they have endured in laying the foundations. No one can understand now all that so eventful a life as Mrs Reed's stands for. No one can pay a sufficient tribute to the memory of one who in a strange land, left alone in th world, amid trials and incessant labors lore her part so unflinchingly, so sincerely, and so successfully. THE LOCAL FIELD. Rev. Sinclair changed pulpits Sunday with Rev. Thrush of Spencer. Large congregations were out to greet the visitor who has been here once before. 'Rev. Thrush is a very able Dulplt speaker and* was wanted at Mason City at a salary of $1,600 the past summer. He preferred his work in Spencer, where he has a handsome church and large congregation. The Irvington home talent drama drew a $21 house in spite of the fact tha<; no one could get across the river from the west, and no one could come any distance from any other direction. Those present enjoyed it and say that the talent was as good as that imported for the opera house. The company ought to be invited to come up and visit us when the roads get passable. The telephone officials held a meeting in Minneapolis yesterday to see if arrangements could be made for connecting with the line from Waseca Minn., to Minneapolis. If they can Algona will be in communication with the flour city in the spring. If they cannot a new line will be built by our company. J. G. Graham was in Algona and did nofgo north for the meeting. A homestead of the American Yeomen will soon be organized in Algona, members for which are now being secured. The Yeomen are growing rapidly in members, and will soon become a strong institution. One of the recent changes in their plan is that hereafter no deputies will be allowed to collect money from candidates. The banks are made depositories, into which all dues are paid.

The Wisconsin Free is certainly a most en- n.peaer l ore dience in one continual roar of laugn tor throughout -the two and a half hourshe spoke to them. The touching scenes of his eventful life were full of moral lessons that old and young alike would do well to profit by. ars, Some years ago a cousin made up the Pay family genealogy, ana it is curious to note in this instance how the blopd of the nobility of former times is part of the heredity of our modern popular democracy. The first Pay was ft Norman noble in King John's army. iPovrato Cromwell's time they were pwners of vast estates and royal patents. , They were attainted for supporting King Charles. Finally they became established in Ireland, where Mrs, Reed was born July 12, 1824, and where th.e Fay homestead is still held. Mrs. Reed was the last survivor or her own family, All her brothers and Bisters preceded her. Her father and Herbert Walter l.ang. Monday afternoon Bert Lang, aged 19 years, son of Mr, and Mrs. W. J. Lang, died of acute Brights' disease. The funeral will be held at the home this after noon at 2 o'clock, He was a well known and well liked boy in A- ffona and was just entering manhood, He had begun work at Ehlers & Fal- kenhainer's drug store and was studying pharmacy when he was taken sick. Many young friends will mourn his untimely death. _ Rev. Sinclair's Baby. The bright little boy baby born to Rev. and Mrs, Sinclair a few weeks ago succumbed to grip Monday. It was HtronEr vigorous little one, and gave t>romis'e of reaching'a robust manhood, The funeral will be held this afternoon ^SK:l£iS^SK for burial. Friends sympathize with the bereaved parents, The onlv tragedy of the flood is re-' ported byD. T Smith. It was a rab- R H? came floating down seated nnranelv on a cake of ice. But sua- denly he decided that his situation was Precarious and he jumped into the water and struck out bravely for the shore. He swam strongly enough but wasted his energy in trying to get onto bushes and vainly tried to climb trees At last he got to jumping out of the water and with one final leap gave up and disappeared. Poor bunny, it was a big enough tragedy to him. AMONG THE ADVERTISERS. This is the season for the E. & F. cough cure. Kimball has a car of seed wheat at the Northwestern. The Wigwam has something new in a grain drill. It will pay every farmer to see it. Sixteen cars of cattle went over the Northwestern Sunday morning. Burt sent nine cars. Durdall's hard times clothing sale is the feature of the season. Clothing was never so cheap. The market is up a little, hogs being $3.50. which is considerably better. Oats are 11. cents, corn 9, wheat 58, and flax 60. Perry Burlingame shipped four cars of his cattle he fed on hail storm corn Sunday from Sexton. They averaged 1,350 a head and he got $4.30.
