Ed. Hudson dead
Just as we were ready to go to press news reached us that Mr. Hudson had died at 11 o'clock Wednesday forenoon. The cause of his death being due to pleura-pneumonia. The entire community was shocked to hear of his death as he had been sick but a week, and seemed to be on the road to recovery.
Full particulars next week.
The deceased learned the trade of cabinet making in his native town and being too confining emigrated to Cass county and became a successful tiller of the soil. His illness was of very short duration and the report of his death came as a surprise to all who knew him. Services were held at the country home and interment in the Hunter cemetery on Friday, Nov. 1st.
A very pretty wedding took place on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 30 at 3 o'clock at the bride's home, when Miss Olga Marie Korshus became the bride of Mr. John O. Satrom. Rev. O. Turmo read the service in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends.
The parlor was beautifully decorated for the occasion. An arch in green and white formed the setting for the servie. Miss Mina Groven played the wedding music to announce the bridal party. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Minnie Korshus. Mr. Peter Satrom, a cousin of the groom, was best man. The bride was gowned in white messaline trimmed in heavy lace. She wore a veil and carried a shower of bridal roses. The bridesmaid wore a dainty blue dress.
A dinner and reception followed the ceremony.
The bride and groom were the recipients of numerous beautiful and valuable wedding presents.
The bridal couple left immediately afterwards on their honeymoon trip to the Pacific coast, where they will travel and visit for a couple of months before returning to their home here.
Both the bride and groom are well and favorably known in this community. The groom is the son of O. P. Satrom, prominent farmer and banker, while the bride is a daughter of Ole Korshus, a prominent farmer, contractor and builder, both families being pioneer residents of this community. The many friends of the contracting parties join in wishing them a long and happy married life.
A thrill of deep sympathy was felt through all the community when it was known that Mrs. A. D. Atherton was critically ill at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Levi Thompson, for in the early years there was not a man, woman or child within a radius of ten miles who had not received some signal kindness from her generous heart and willing hands. And when the skilled physician and tender nurses had done their best and failed, a sense of personal loss came to each of us old timers, together with a sharp realization of how few there are left of us here, and how many are peacefully sleeping up yonder on the hill.
When most of us were so busy with the manifold duties and responsibilities of early pioneer days on our wide, bare prairies, that we were apt to forget or slight the social amenities of life. The Atherton home was always a warm glowing social center where young and old were always cordially welcomed and royally entertained.
Ellen Morse was born in Vermont in 1840, but removed to Clinton, N. Y. while young, and was married there in 1858 to John Armstrong and six children were born to them two of whom died in infancy.
Her husband died in 1870 when she brought her four children to the new town of Glencoe, Minn. the youngest of whom was only nine months old.
She afterwards moved to Minneapolis where she was married to Mr. A. D. Atherton in 1882 and they came to Casselton the same year, coming to Hunter in 1886 where they resided until they moved to the vicinity of Minot in 1901, and for the last four years they have lived in the city where they had a large circle of warm friends who will greatly miss that genial home.
It is seldom, even when they were mated early in life, that such lover-like devotion is seen that Mr. and Mrs. Atherton always maintained for each other, and a dear little Katie (Mrs. A. B. Crandall who went on before her to the heavenly land) she was a true and devoted mother.
Of her children, three survive her, Annie, Mrs. Levi Thompson of Hunter, Ida, Mrs. Churchill of Minot and Ashton Armstrong of Buffalo Lake, Minn. Carlton her first born, in his young manhood, came to his mother's home here, nineteen years ago, to be most tenderly nursed through his last long and most painful illness by his mother, and sister Annie and as we laid his mother's worn out body beside him on the hillside we thought of the glad reunion “over there.” Though her illness was long and painful it was borne with true Christian fortitude and in her last hours she had strength given her to exhort those about her to higher and more exalted lives and greatly enjoyed the ministrations of her friend Rev. Mr. Old pastor of her church (the M. E.) here, especially the singing of the grand old consolation hymns, which those near and dear to her sang through their tears, to the last, her request always being, “sing me to sleep.” She met death calmly and her end was certainly peace. The church beautifully decorated and filled with friends and neighbors and the service was beautiful and impressive.
Great sympathy is expressed everywhere for the family especially for the bereaved husband, who is suffering a double bereavement, having during the week lost an only surviving daughter.
Those from a distance in attendance were: Mrs. Churchill of Minot, A. B. Crandall of Minot, Mrs. McMullen, truest of friends of Carrington, W. E. Churchill of Glencoe, Minn., and Mrs. William Fralish of Fargo.
R. A. Miller has purchased the auto formerly owned by H. M. Weiser and last Saturday made a trip to Fargo with his family. He had Stanton Muir run the machine for him. Never mind you will learn Mr. Miller.
Potatoes for pigs Potatoes should be cooked if they are to be fed to hogs. It increases their food value. It has been found that 400 lbs. of potatoes cooked are equal to 100 lbs. of grain feed. Some grain should be fed with the potatoes. It does not pay to cook the grain as this decreases its digestibility.
