Walter Muir passed away last Monday afternoon at about five o'clock after an extended illness of several months. Mr. Muir was one of the first settlers here and has made his home in Hunter since coming to this place, and while here he has made a great host of friends who are now in mourning for his demise. He was an old civil war veteran and his demise leaves but one of the old guard left living in Hunter, one by one they are leaving and the time will soon be here when all will be laid to rest. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock from the Presbyterian church and the remains were laid to rest in our "City of the Dead," Rev. Wolfe officiating. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in Hunter and the last resting place of the one we loved was bedecked with many flowers, in remembrance of the esteem in which he has held by old and young alike. Not for him our tears! Rather let us crown his grave with garland; few of us will live as long or as well, and fewer yet will the Angel of Death greet with such a loving touch. But he is gone! Another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old settlers, and a solitary woman in the sunset of life, and a lonely home, are left to attest how sadly they will miss him. It must be so; these tender human ties cannot be severed without a pang. Yet in such a death there is no cause for grief. His life work was done and well done. He had passed his golden wedding day and wearied with life's duties and cares, weary of suffering and waiting, he lay down to rest. The Herald and its numerous friends extend their most heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved ones in this their sad hour of bereavement. A more complete obituary will be published in the near future.

Our beloved friend, Walter Muir, was born on the Clyde river near Glasgow, Scotland, April 22, 1836. He came to America in 1848 when twelve years old and began in this country the useful life which blessed all with whom he came in contact through all the sixty-eight years. After a short stay in New York the family moved to a farm near Chicago. Later Mr. Muir was employed in the shipyards at Chicago. When Horace Greeley went to Pikes Peak, Colo., and reported gold, Mr. Muir, like many another in that early day, took the "gold fever" and journeyed to that western country when twenty-two years old. At the first call for volunteers in the Civil War, he was working in the shipyards at a salary of $60.00 per month, but his patriotism responded to the country's need and he enlisted as a soldier at the salary of $11.00 per month. He served as Sergeant one year and then enlisted in the Navy where he was made Master-at-Arms. Later he was promoted to the office of Executive, in spite of the fact that orders had been given that no foreign born soldier or sailor should be promoted, and served in that capacity to the close of the war. His life as a soldier was a valiant one. He was married in 1863 in Lake Co., Ill., to Miss Lois L. Wheelock, with whom he enjoyed fifty-three years of happy wedded life.
At the close of the war they came to Steele Co., Minn., where they lived fifteen years. While he was a citizen of the State he was twice elected to the Legislature where his influence still lives.
Thirty-five years ago he came to Casselton, No. Dak., remaining there for a short time. In 1880 he moved up to a farm in Hunter township. He came to Hunter in 1888 building the first house and planting the first trees. To him, Hunter owes and acknowledges a debt of gratitude, for the love and disinterested service he has given to the community which bears the indelible imprint of his Christ like personality. When the State Farmers' Alliance was organized he became its devoted, efficient Pres., and gave ten years of his life to that work. He was Editor for a time of a paper called "the Independent" published at Grand Forks. His paper stood for righteousness and moral reform. He was fearless in his stand for the right. To live the principles in which he believed and to extend the cause of righteousness he was ready for any sacrifice. He was well known throughout the state politically and his interest in politics was wholly unselfish and due to his love for his fellow men and the cause of Justice. He was a candidate at one time for the U. S. Senate, and the fact that he came within three votes of election speaks to the esteem in which he was held. In 1896 he was a candidate for Governor of the State. During his political life, no consideration of reward, or office, or preferment, led him away from what he conscientiously believed to be the law of duty. He was an honorary member of the W. C. T. U. and the first man to introduce in a political convention the idea of Prohibition. He was a charter member of the Presbyterian Church in Hunter, and with one or two others was instrumental in its organization and growth. For a long period of years he was the officially ordained Ruling Elder of the Church, and as such was the wise and helpful counselor of the Pastor. He went quietly to sleep Monday afternoon, Jan. 17th 1916 at five o'clock. Two daughters and one son were waiting to greet his awakening to Eternal Day. His widow Mrs. Lois L. Muir, his daughter Mrs. William Simmons of Minneapolis; his sons, Dr. Ed. Muir of Winona, Minn., Mr. W. C. Muir, and Atty. Robt. Muir of Hunter, live to miss the love and counsel and comradeship of an ideal husband and father. May God “lift up His countenance upon them, and given them comfort and peace.” As it was said of one of old, so it may be said of Walter Muir, "He, being dead, yet speaketh." "The battle strife is ended; He has sealed the hindering wall; He is putting off the armor of the soldier,--that is all. Would you hide him from his pleasures? Would you hold him from his rest? From his serving and his waiting God has called him to rest." Beloved husband, father, and friend all hail and farewell-until the sunrise. The funeral was held from the Presbyterian Church in Hunter and was attended by friends from far and near. The services were conducted by the Pastor, Rev. Aaron Wolfe, D. D., after which the body was laid to rest in the beautiful Hunter cemetery.

Celebrate Wedding Anniversary
Mr. and Mrs. Peter McLachlin entertained a few guests at dinner last Friday night in honor of the twenty-fourth anniversary of their marriage, which occurred on the 11th, but owing to circumstances, was celebrated one week late. It was a very pleasant affair and the genial hospitality of the host and hostess was thoroughly enjoyed by those present.
Scarlet carnations added a touch of beauty and color to the dining room, while in the living room jonquils spoke of coming spring.
The guests present were Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Hockridge, Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Hockridge, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Black, Rev. and Mrs. Aaron Wolfe, and Miss Madeline Shindler, who all wish for Mr. and Mrs. McLachlin many happy returns for the day.

In Memorium
F. B. Simmons was born in Sacramento, Cali., on Feb. 14th, 1858 and died Feb. 29th, 1916.
When six years old he went to Vermont, where he spent his early life and came to Hunter in 1882. In 1893 he went into the mercantile business at Amenia, and the following year he married Mary A. Hazen of Hartford, Vermont. In 1903 he went to Mayville where he also had a store but came to Hunter in 1908 and accepted a position in the First National Bank as asst. cashier, which position he held until the end. He leaves a wife, daughter, brother and sister to mourn his loss.
The funeral was conducted from the house last Friday afternoon, where many paid their last tribute to the departed, Rev. Wolfe officiating. The casket was covered with many beautiful flowers, all of which spoke of peace, purity and immortality. Two beautiful songs were rendered by Mrs. Walter Reed of Amenia, which were such as to soften all hearts and to moisten all eyes. At the close of the short, but very impressive address, the remains were taken to the cemetery where they were laid to rest, under the auspices of the local lodge of Odd Fellows, of which he was a member.
Poet nor artist has ever been able to portray the grave in colors of brightness and beauty. Bryant in the “Hymn of Death,” could not make the subject beautiful; and yet the cemetery with its marble and its dead, the chair that has no occupant, the fancied echo of the silent voice, and the vacant place in home, social and lodge life, are mellowing and uplifting in their influence. They bring the best of human nature into the fullness of vigor, crowding back the selfishness and imperiousness of men, and impressing them with the duty of recognition of the value of friendship. It is the gloom of the churchyard that reveals to us more clearly the beauty of life. It is the broken ties at the grave that prompts us to a fuller appreciation of the tenderness of the ties that are not yet broken; and so while we mourn the loss of our dead we may rejoice that there is no cloud so dark that there is no light behind it, no sorrow so poignant that there is not a balm for the wound it inflicts.

The ladies brought their lunch baskets with them and presented Mrs. Mitchell with several nice remembrances as tokens of the esteem in which she was held by her many friends and neighbors. We are sorry to see her go but wish her all kinds of happiness in her new home.

Mr. Joseph Sayer was born in Fakenham, England, September 8th, 1825. He came to this country in 1848 when twenty-two years of age, spending a few years in Illinois where he was united in marriage to Miss Nancy Streeter. Soon after their marriage they went to Wisconsin where they spent a great many years. To Mr. and Mrs. Sayer were born three children, Mr. Frank Sayer and Mr. Robert Sayer of Hunter, No. Dak. and Mrs. Sophia Erb of Whittier, California.
Mr. Sayer was one of the pioneers of this country arriving here in 1879. Here his strenuous life on the farm won for him the distinction of being one of the most thrifty and successful agriculturists of the country.
As a result of his success he was able to accumulate a large amount of prosperity.
One man said to another more than three score and ten years of age “why do you plant trees, the fruit of which you can never expect to gather?” The aged man replied: “that those who come after me, may enjoy the fruit.” So the passing of these Pioneers, one by one, reminds us as we reap of the fruit of their toil, of the debt of gratitude we owe to these hard working, self sacrificing early settlers who helped to develop the country, and so have made life easier for the present generation. Of these Pioneers Mr. Sayer was one. As a citizen and fellow townsman he was interested in the development and upbuilding of the community. He moved from the farm to Hunter in 1908, where in 1904 Mrs. Sayer passed away.
About eight years ago Mr. Sayer became a member of the "Independent Order of Odd Fellows." He was devoted to his lodge, and until very recently was always in his place at its meetings.
He answered the summons which comes to all men, Friday evening, April 14th, at seven o'clock. He was four score and ten years of age, having lived twenty years beyond man's allotted time, “For the days of a man's life are three score years and ten, but if by reason of strength they be four score, yet is their strength labor and sorrow, for they are soon cut off and we fly away.”
Beside his three children Mr. Sayer leaves a sister ninety four years of age and several devoted grandchildren.
The funeral was held from the First Presbyterian Church of Hunter, Sunday afternoon April 16, at 2 o'clock. The services were conducted by the Pastor, Rev. Mr. Wolfe, who used as a text the words found in Job 5:26. “Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season.” The discourse emphasized the fact that death is inevitable and that Man must come to his grave “sooner or later but that it is a beautiful thing to come to the grave as did Mr. Sayer, who, having lived far beyond the three score and ten mark, truly came to the grave as “a shock of corn in full age.” The service was largely attended and many beautiful flowers, the gifts of friends adorned the bier. The remains were laid to rest in the Hunter cemetery. The burial service was conducted by the Odd Fellows.

Mrs. Marie Lund was born in Germany in 1830. She came to America in 1893 living in Nebraska for some time then removing to Wisconsin. She came to Hunter four years ago.

Bad Accident
A very serious accident occurred last Friday evening, when the eight year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Howell who reside on the farm formerly owned by Otto Zellmer, was kicked in the forehead by a mule, crushing in the skull. Dr. was summoned and the next day the girl was taken to Fargo where an operation was performed, which was quite successful, as from the reports we could gather she is slowly improving, although nothing definite as to the outcome could be learned.

Bids Farewell
Mr. and Ms. C. M. Beitler and children left last Saturday for Carey, Ohio. They have lived among us for about nine years and we are very sorry to have to say good bye to them, as they were well respected by all who knew them and had a host of friends here, who will join with the Herald in wishing them all joy, happiness and success in their new home. What is our loss is Carey's gain. Mr. Beitler was a man who took great pride in his school work and always gave the pupils his entire time and attention, he accomplished wonders for the pupils, and during his stay here he accomplished wonders for the Hunter High School, raising it to a first class high school, and lots of the credit must go to the fine efforts of Mr. Beitler. If there was any doings Mr. Beitler was right there to help out and did his best to make it a success. Mr. Beitler taught three years in rural schools, one year in charge of latin department, Bellefontaine, Ohio, one year high school at New Washington, Ohio, three years as Supt. of Schools, of Attica, Ohio, one at Homestead, Fla., and nine years at Hunter. And now he has accepted the superintendency of the Carey, Ohio, schools.

The funeral service was held Wednesday afternoon at 2:30, with the Rev. O. L. Anthony officiating, and the remains were laid to rest in Hunter's “City of the Dead.” An obituary will be published next week.

August 10, 1916

Mrs. Harriett Selina Nesbitt was born in Whitby, Ontario, June 28th, 1851, her maiden name was Smith. She was married to Levi Nesbitt on June 26th, 1866, and moved to the United States in 1891. The greater part of their time was spent in Michigan. She moved with her husband to Hunter in 1908.
There were born to their marriage six children, five sons and one daughter, one son and the daughter have preceded her by death. There remains to mourn her loss, a husband and four sons, three daughter-in-laws and a large host of friends. Mrs. Nesbitt has been failing in health for a long time and in spite of all that could be done for her, she passed away on August 1st, her husband the three sons were with her at the bedside when the end came.
The funeral services were held from the Lutheran church on last Wednesday August 2nd, at 2:30 p. m., with Rev. O. L. Anthony of the M. E. church, officiating, his text, for the occasion was “Death is Swallowed up in Victory” 1 Cor. 14:54. The church was beautifully decorated by the ladies of the M. E. church and a good attendance of friends was present to show their respect for the departed and the bereaved ones. The music was rendered by members of the Methodist Episcopal choir with W. R. Mitchell in charge.
Her life was gentle, but like the still waters, it was deep. In her heart of hearts she carried those she loved and her hand was never weary, her step never failed in ministering unto, caring for, waiting upon those who were in any way dependent upon her.
Well may her children cherish her memory as a precious legacy and we fain would say a word for comfort to the stricken ones; we can but let our tears flow in sympathy with theirs and point them to the promise, “At eventide it shall be light.”
Sophus L. Larson was born Dec. 15, 1891. He lived with his parents near Hunter for a good many years, and when the wires flashed the news last week of his sudden death, by drowning, the whole community was at once moved to sympathy for the bereaved parents and family. Mr. Larson had just proved up on his homestead in Montana a few days before his death, and was intending to come home to spend the summer with his folks.
He was a young man whose life was an inspiration to those with whom he lived and associated. Of fine habits. The funeral which was held from the Presbyterian Church last Friday August 4th at ten o'clock, was very largely attended. The casket was covered with flowers brought and sent by loving friends. The body was laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery just northwest of Hunter. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Wolfe of the Presbyterian church who took his text from 1 Sam. XX-3.

In New Quarters
Collins & Runestrand, the proprietors of the Pastime, have decided that the south side of the I. O. O. F. Hall will make a far better place for their business, and will make the change. The carpenters and painters have been busy for the past week, remodeling and painting the interior, and when completed will make a neat looking place and will have a larger seating capacity than in the old quarters. Messrs. Collins and Runestrand will run the best pictures obtainable, and if business will justify, contemplate running several shows a week. Tonight will be their opening night and they have been successful in getting that great 5 reel Luben feature, entitled, “The Rights of Man,” a story of war's red blot. This feature is now being run in all the leading cities of the east and is spoken very highly of by the Press. The Pastime will not be run exclusively as a picture show as heretofore, but will be available to road shows who may want to make dates here during the show season and will also be used as a dancing hall occasionally.

November 30, 1916
