Obituary of Mrs J. B Taylor
Our community was shocked when the death of Mrs. J. B. Taylor was announced Thursday night, October 3, who had reached the age of 66 years, 1 month and 28 days.
Funeral services were held in the M.E. church, Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock , October 7, conducted by Rev. J. L. Walsh, who was assisted by Rev. C. L. Starr. A large concourse of neighbors and friends were present to pay their last respects to the deceased. The remains were placed in a tomb in the cemetery north of town.
Hattie E. Taylor was born Aug. 5, 1846, in the town of Catherine, New York. She was united in marriage to Dr. J. B. Taylor March 15, 1868, in Brighton, Mich. To this union were born seven children, four boys and three girls, all of whom survive with the exception of one son, who died in infancy.
The deceased moved from Michigan to Ohio in the spring of 1868. In the year 1893 they then moved from Ohio to South Dakota in the fall.
Mrs. Taylor was one of thirteen children. Two brothers survive the deceased.
Mrs. Taylor was confirmed in the Episcopalian church in infancy. She identified herself with the Methodist church as a girl in the city of Ypsilanti, Mich., near Detroit. She was transferred to the M.E. church in St. Lawrence, S.D., during which time she worked faithfully for the good of the cause. The church has suffered greatly by the removal of such an earnest worker.
Text used, Mark 14-82.
"Not now, but in the coming years
It may be in the better land,
We read the meaning of our tears
And then sometime we'll understand.
A Very Painful Accident
Thursday, a week ago, Harry Johnson, who is a student at Wessington Springs seminary, started to ride his motorcycle to Vieana, this state, where the Free Methodist Conference was in session. It was just becoming dark when he entered town. The motocycle had no light, so he was the victim of a very serious accident that he cannot definitely explain, but is rather inclined to think that his machine collided with another vehicle. At any rate, the motorcycle was practically wrecked, while the rider sustained a double dislocation of the lower jaw, losing several front teeth, and having his face otherwise very badly lacerated. A pedestrian on the street happened to see him and helped him to a near-by physician's office.
The young man's parents, who live in Bates township, this county were telephoned and Mr. Peter Johnson and wife, father and mother, and Oscar Johnson, brother of the unlucky young man, immediately autoed to his help. He was taken to the hospital at Madison, where at last reports he was doing much better than at first thot possible, and is expected to arrive home the latter part of this week.
Locals and Personals

Rev. J. L. Walsh left on Monday's morning passenger enroute to Yankton to attend the Methodist conference.

Mrs. Alma Drew and son, Paul, departed for McCook, Neb, on an extended visit last Friday evening. Before returning home they may decide to go to Fort Morgan, Colorado, to visit her sister who expects to remove to California soon.

Little Earl Carl, aged 2, cut a gash over his left eye last Saturday which required a couple of stitches to close the wound. He was playing with a bottle, striking it on a cement sidewalk, when it broke and a fragment struck him and made a wound as stated above. If the glass had cut a trifle deeper it would have injured the eye ball.
A good-sized audience was present Monday night to hear the first number of the lecture course. Miss Hallie Elaine Gassaway, entertainer, held the attention of her audience for over an hour with the rendition of a Scotch selection entitled, "The Little Minister." The manner in which she interpreted the different characters in this work gave evidence that she was an artist in her line.
The democratic rally held Tuesday night in Shaul's hall was well attended. A large number of ladies were present to listen to two very interesting and instructive political speeches delivered by Hon. J. M King, candidate for member of the legislature, and Judge Cummings, of Highmore, democratic candidate for state senator from this district. C. H Banning delighted the audience with songs. The meeting was presided over by Editor Healey, of the the Miller Gazette, chairman of the democratic county central committee.

He will stop a few days at Madison, Wis., the place where he spent his boyhood days, which he had not seen for nearly 20 years. Here's wishing him unbounded success.
NOTICE: To my friends and all those who promised me their votes to assist me in the piano contest: As I cannot personally be on the streets or in the store to receive my votes, I sincerely ask you to put them in my can. Please do not sell them to those that have money to buy them, or let anyone coax them from you. I think this very wrong and do not want a piano won in this way. Had I the money to buy a piano I would not ask your support, but as I have not, I must depend upon the support of my friends to help me win out Then should I suffer defeat it will not be because I have in any way taken advantage of anyone. I only ask what is fair. Thanking all my friends for what they have already done for me and asking for a continuance of their support, I remain
Sincerely, Edna Starr.
