An Honor Party A dinner party was given at the R. A. Miller farm on Saturday evening in honor of Lieut. R. E. Hockridge, our beloved friend and Hun Exterminator. Prompted by a desire to renew old school acquaintances and live over old times together again, which needless to say are pleasant memories, we highly prize a number of friends who met together and had a most wonderful time. Dinner was served at eight and the evening spent in music and games. It must be said that the smiling face of our friend Earl across the table was the center of attraction. An inspiration to us which reminded one of a teaching “If God be for us, who can be against us.” That nothing is impossible with God we do not understand we do not wish to understand we only wonder. What one of us would have that when we studied general history together that some of our number would make history which is a fitting climax of all that has gone before. We believe you Earl when you say, “history is hard to make.” Earl, here's to a friend we want to know. .

Word from Arthur Burgum says that he sails March 15 on his second trip to Brest, France on the U. S. S. “Leviathan” after a week's stay in New York city.

Obituary Another of our pioneer settlers has gone to his reward. Another home is desolated, a happy family circle is broken. Hans Willert who has been suffering for some time with a number of diseases which finally culminated in a severe attack of appendicitis that required an operation and he has taken to a hospital in Fargo where he went through the operation successfully but had not the strength to recuperate owing to his weakened condition. He went to the hospital Saturday night, was operated on Sunday and died Monday afternoon at two o'clock. .
Mr. Willert was born in Germany in 1853; was married there to Miss Dorothia Herdaniech November 15th 1881 and in 1894 they came with their seven children to make their home on their homestead four miles from Galesburg and eight miles west of Hunter where six children were added to their family. A wonderful family of stalwart sons and fair daughtes grown to healthy man and woman hoods on the fair and fertile plans of North Dakota, a blessing to their parents and the state and nation. .
The children surviving their father are: Annie, now Mrs. Ed Eichorst of Thompson, N. D., Martha, wife of Thomas Lee of Arthur, Frieda, Mrs. Louis Schur, of the same place and Mary, Mrs. Halley Curtis of Thompson, N. D. and Wesley, Dora, Hilda still at home to be their mother's present help and comforter. The pallbearers were all their sons. Paul of Thompson, N. D., Henry of Minot, Gustave of Arthur, Karl of Thompson, John of Hunter, Herman of Page, N. D. .
They have the loving sympathy in their sore bereavement, of a very large circle of friends as was attested by the attendance at the funeral which was held at Hunter Wednesday at two o'clock p. m., Rev. O. L. Anthony officiated in the absence of the Minister of their church the Evangelical Lutheran. .
