Died

The grim reaper has again added another life to the multitude gone before, and this time the person of the infant Grace, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gust Hogenson. Little Grace was born on Aug. 3, 1912 and died Jan. 18, 1913. Services were held in the Lutheran church Sunday and interment in the Hunter cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Hogenson have the sympathy of the community. Dullum-Humphrey

The marriage of Miss Lena Dullum of Hunter and Thomas Humphrey of Grandin was solemnized yesterday afternoon at the home of Rev. C. A. MacNamara on Seventh avenue north, Fargo. The bride was charming in a gown of cream orchids. Only a few of the immediate friends of the family were present. The happy couple left Tuesday morning for a short trip in the east and will be at home to their friends on a farm west of Grandin after a two weeks honeymoon.
The new bride is well known here as "central" having held a position with the Hunter telephone Co. as night “hello” girl for about eighteen months when she was changed to the day shift.
Lena, as her many friends called her, was proficient in her work and the Company has lost another of their obliging operators. Here's hoping that Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey will enjoy all that is in life during their union.

Obituary

The subject of this sketch-Alexander Russell-was born Dec. 2, 1820, at Aberdeenshire, Parish of Cunnington, Scotland, and died at his home in Hunter, Jan. 28, 1913.
Mr. Russell was married in 1853 and emigrated to central Ontario in 1855, remaining there until 1880 he came with his family to Casselton and took up a piece of land some four miles north of Erie which he farmed for four years, afterwards moving to the home place which his son John now owns. This piece of land he tilled for eleven years and on account of the infirmities of old age was compelled to stop active operations. Mr. and Mrs. Russell moved to Hunter where he has since remained.
Eight children were the result of their marriage, three of whom are living and are Mrs. Hank, W. D., and J. G. Russell.
“Dad” Russell, as he was familiarly known by all who knew him, being of Scotch descent, was a great student of the poets and the bible and he could be easily interested by starting on either subject, quoting passage after passage of scripture, or poem after poem. Sickness was a foreign element to his sturdy Scotch build but as the years passed by he was compelled to submit to the inevitable, and during the last year of his life he suffered considerable, but the end came.
The funeral sermon was conducted in the M. E. church by Rev. Thompson of the Presbyterian church and interment in the Hunter cemetery. Notice

Obituary

With the prayer her mother taught her in her infancy on her lips, Mabel, beloved and eldest daughter of Andrew and Mary Severson of Dows township, and wife of Peter Lima of Cooperstown, slipped out of this life into the great beyond, Monday Feb'y 3rd. Mabel was born a pioneer baby in the old home on the claim, and never did one seem better fitted for their station in life, always so willing and helpful to both her father and mother, and to the little flock of brothers and sisters that came after her, a loving and tender second mother, and when she went with the husband of her choice to make a new home only a little more than two years ago in all the strength and joy of her young womanhood, she left a void in the home and in the community that could not be filled. And the warm place she had made for herself in her new environment was amply shown in the kind helpfulness and loving administrations of her neighbors and friends, and in the grief that could not be suppressed and tried to express itself in the lavish beauty of the flowers and decorations of the church, where a first service was held on Tuesday, that her friends and neighbors of Cooperstown might show their love and respect for her. The service here on Wednesday, in the Lutheran church, conducted by Rev. Turmo, was, in spite of the storm and intense cold, very largely attended by sympathizing friends and neighbors who did all that was possible to show loving respect and honor to both the living and the dead. Indeed it was wonderful that so many and such beautiful flowers could have been brought so far in such weather. In a way she seemed to belong to us for many of her school days were spent here and it seems most fitting that she should sleep her last sleep beside the brother and sisters she loved so well. She bore her sufferings, which were severe, with Christian fortitude and might have survived the pneumonia that first attacked her if spinal meningitis had not supervened, causing brain fever. At her bedside when the end came were her husband, her father and mother, brother Severt of Horace and sister Nina of Fargo besides her little sister Mary and her nine months old baby boy. Great sympathy for them all is expressed on every side, especially for the bereaved husband and the little son who is too young to realize his great loss. We can only pray that the heavenly Father will comfort them as he alone can.

At Rest

Died, at her home in our village, after a lingering illness of several months, Friday evening, May 2, 1913, at 11:30 o'clock, Mrs. Gust Hogenson, aged forty-six years.
She was born at Hemsedhal, Norway, on Sunday, June 17, 1866 and came to this country when she was 22 years old and for the first year she lived with an uncle at Kindred, this state. She then came to Hunter, where she has made her home until the end. She was married to Gust Hogenson on Saturday, December 26, 1891. This happy union was blessed with seven children, four sons and three daughters, three of them having passed over the Great Divide. There are left to mourn her sad demise, a beloved husband, two sons and two daughters, a mother and father, two sisters and two brothers.
All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious household could devise and apply for her comfort and assistance were brought into play, but the fiat of Him who rules our incomings and outgoings had been issued, and before the beautiful morning was kissed by the rising sun, the sufferer's spirit took its flight to that Home the Christian believes is the fulfillment of the life everlasting. Let us, if possible, gather up the elements of the life of the departed one and weave of them a picture for the walls of memory. She ran the journey of life in forty-six years. It is a path marked with deeds of kindness and cheer. Flowers, not thorns, sunshine, not shadow, did she scatter everywhere. With these she was lavish. Truth was the inspiration of her life and by kindness she exemplified its great worth. Was not her life full of Godlikeness? And there was reason for this. When the bloom of childhood was blooming into the blush of refined womanhood she had sought the pearl of great price and made it chief among the jewels of her youthful life. This was the fountain of the maturity of her character. For upon the white canvas of her life she drew no uncertain lines which needed to be erased. Therefore we mourn, but not without hope. Through this gloom there comes back a bright beam of sunshine which turns our tears to jewels of promise.
For the Sabbath of earth she now enjoys the never ending Sabbath of Heaven. She waits your coming and watches near the gate. And remember that morning is not far off when the love of Christ shall bid thee enter in and share with her unending, unalloyed joy.
The last services were held from the house and the Lutheran church Monday p.m. at 2 o'clock, Rev. Turmo officiating. The remains were laid to rest beside those of her children in the Hunter cemetery. Songs were touchingly rendered by the choir of the Lutheran church and Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Gale, Mrs. Ed. Mitchell and Professor Beitler who sang, "Nearer My God To Thee." The flowers were many and beautiful but not more beautiful than the face that rested so peacefully among them. Beautiful in life, beautiful in death, but far more beautiful resurrection morn. Flowers seem to be the best emblem we have to express our love, for we wreathe them about the cradle, the marriage alter and tomb. Thus would we leave her and in memory keep her, as sweetly reposing among the beautiful and fragrant flowers.

Barn Burned

During the storm last Thursday morning the barn on the old Peter Madsen farm, two miles east of Hunter, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Nine horses and one colt and all the harness and feed belonging to Ed. Fleichouer, the renter, were burned, nothing whatever being saved. The fire was first discovered about four o'clock but Mr. Fleichouer was unable to save anything as the building was a mass of flames. Martin Pederson Dead

Martin Pederson died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. Lund, Friday, June 6th, at 4:00 o' clock p. m. Death was due to cancer.

He then moved to Hunter where he has since resided. He leaves one daughter, Mrs. Albert Lund, to mourn his demise. The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from the Lutheran church, Rev. Turmo officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Hunter cemetery.

William Witherow killed in accident

The following is taken from a Blaine (Wash.) paper and gives an account of the death of Wm. Witherow, which was mentioned in this paper a short time ago. This community was again shocked Tuesday afternoon, July 1st, as a result of a disastrous accident at the Ainsowrth & Dunn cannery just before the noon hour which cost the lives of two men, Wm. J. Witherow and Alex Dalgety. Mr. Witherow died almost instantly and Mr. Dalgety lingered in an unconscious condition until 2:50 o'clock. The accident was caused by the blowing open of a heavy door of one of the retorts which struck both men with full force. Mr. Witherow was caught between the heavy door and a retort and crushed instantly, and although some of the workmen thought there were signs of life afterward, death was almost instantaneous. The big 770 lb. door struck Mr. Dalgety and knocked him some 30 to 40 feet. He never regained consciousness. Just what caused the fastenings of the door to break will never be known, but it is presumed that the steam pressure got too high and caused the break. The funeral services over the body of Mr. Witherow were held in the Congregational church yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. R. C. Hartley officiating. The Bellingham lodge of Elks, of which he was a member, had charge of the funeral. Wm. J. Witherow was about 27 years of age and single. He came to Blaine from Hunter, N. D., with his parents about five years ago. In addition to his parents he leaves three sisters, one of them, Mrs. Otto Vogt, residing at Birch Bay. He was a young man well liked by all who knew him and a valuable employee at the cannery where he met his death. He has been a member of the Blaine fire department for four years or more and at the time of his death was secretary of this organization, which will miss his energetic work.

They will be at home to their many friends after November first at the groom's farm south of town. Mrs. Duffield, mother of the groom, and Warren Duffield, a brother, of Ottawa, Ill., were the out of town relatives present at the wedding. This event marks the most important milestone in their lives. Another home is made, a new start in life is commenced under the most favorable conditions and circumstances. We wish them a long life and bespeak of them much happiness.

Twentieth Wedding Anniversary
On Wednesday evening, Oct. 15th, the large, beautiful home of R. A. Miller was filled to its capacity when a host of friends come to join Mr. and Mrs. Miller in celebrating their twentieth wedding anniversary. The fore part of the evening was spent in songs, recitations and music, all of which was very much appreciated. A sumptuous luncheon was served at the appointed time and to say that it was enjoyed would be but expressing it lightly. Isn't it astonishing, the appetite some ladies have? Most men are considered hearty eaters, but when it comes to turkey, some women are ahead. Partners for supper were found by matching stanzas of “Mother Goose Rhymes,” which was quite exciting for a few minutes. After supper the gentlemen had to recite the little stanzas for himself and lady. You may be sure that this furnished no little amusement. Mr. and Mrs. Miller were recipients of many beautiful presents, showing the high esteem in which they are held by the many friends. Among the presents was a quartered oak sideboard, a hundred piece china dinner set, a hand painted bread tray, cake plate, fruit plate, flowers and embroidered linen. The merrymaking crowd left in high glee, all wishing Mr. and Mrs. Miller well and hoped for many more such anniversaries and declaring them royal entertainers. Those present were: Messrs. J. Richardson, P. McLachlin, A. Peterson, L. Roach, L. Quaife, W. Muir, W. Hudson, W. Davis, E. Borre, Kundtson, L. Thomson, Worsley, T. Old, C. Collins, Robinson, Hoxie, Vosburg, Craig, Frank, H. Brewer, and Beitler. Mesdames. W. Muir, J. Peterson, A. Peterson, J. Richardson, Worsley, E. Hudson, Quaife, Roach, Borre, Collins, Carr, Hoxie, Robinson, McLachlin, Vosburg, Craig, Frank, Stafford and Brewer.

In Memoriam

A sense of personal loss came to every resident of this town and vicinity, who have had their home here since 1902, when it became known that Mr. D. McKenzie had heard and obeyed the call of the Master to “Come up Higher” in their far-off home by the western sea where they went more than a year ago in the vain hope that the mild climate prevailing there would aid in his complete recovery from a disease that had been slowly fastening itself upon him for a long time. To everyone who heard the memorial services for him that Rev. Thompson held, with the text from the First Psalm, came the same thought that the first three verses is a perfect description of our old friend and neighbor, even the children felt it. And surely no other man among us yielded in his life so abundantly of the fruits that prove his similarity to a tree planted by the river of life. And his works prospered for he was a “tower of strength” to the weak and tempted and gave most generously of his best to every good cause. Our church and Sunday School have never been the same since the “McKenzie family” went away, hard as we have tried to “close up the ranks and press on.” Our board of education misses his wise and well trained mind in its councils, and our whole social fabric is weaker without him. He followed his Master in as much as he pleased not himself, but in spite of weakness and suffering, brought to every daily task the same cheerful, willing spirit, dignifying honest labor of every sort. Of his early history and experiences we know very little, in the ten years and two months that he lived among us he had not much time for retrospection he was too busy proving himself the greatest of all by being the servant of all, and we only know that he was born in Glasgow, Scotland, came to Canada in early life, was graduated at Queen's College and was married to Miss Georgana Gilbert and that they made their home in the northern part of North Dakota before they came here with their only surviving child, Mary, and from the occasional accounts that have come to us from neighbors there, his life was always the same there as here.
