Punctuality in Attendance, Tuition

by Supt. E. M. Mitchell, Warren

teachers and educators from North
western Minnesota. Marshall County
was well represented and we be

Asystem of awards for perfect
attendance and punctuality is being
tried this year in the grades. The
names of those who have been
neither absent nor tardy for the
first five months of school are in
print this week.- Each of these have
received a certificate of award. This
has had the effect of increasing the
attendance and has' largely elimi
nated tardiness. In some cases the
children have been so intent on
avoiding tardiness, that the parents
have had to sacrifice their late mor

John Lindberg, well known and
highly respected business man and
pioneer citizen of Warren, passed
away at his home here on Friday
morning, Feb. 14, 1913, at 4:10
o'clock, after a short illness from
pneumonia, aged 53 years, 3 months
and 1 day.
The news of Mr. Lindberg's sud
den demise came as a shock to the
people of this city, many of whom
did not know even that he had been
sick. He was a man of unusual
good health and had never been sick
before in his life until stricken this
time. On Monday morning, Feb.
10, he went to the mill to attend to
his business aslisual, but commenc
ing to feel sick, he returned to his
home before the noon hour. The
doctor was called and everything
that possibly couldbe done for him
was done, but without avail. The
grim disease had him too firmly in
its grip and in a few days more his
active and useful earthly career
was ended. ^'V^'-.r''.
John Lindberg was born in Vest
ergotland, Sweden, Nov. 13, 1859,
and he came with his parents to
America in 1872. The family lived
for'a short time at Hastings, Minn.,
but removed that same year, in the
fall, to Carver county, this state,
where Mr. Lindberg grew to man
hood and stayed with his parents
nearly all the time, until his depar
ture for the Red River Valley in
1881. His, first yoar in the valley
was spent in Norman county and in
the following year, 1882, he came to
Warren where his home has been
ever sinco. Shortly after arriving
here he became associated with
Aug. Lundgren as one of the pro
prietors of the Warren brick yard,
lumber or years
Tn 1897 Mr. Lindberg started in
the farm machinery business and a
short time after Aug. Lundgren
joined him, the firm becoming
known as Lindberg & Lundgren. In
1902 he sold his interest in the ma
chine business to C. Wittensten.
In the year 1905 Mr. Lindberg
bought Mr. J. S. Hilleboe's interest
in the Warren fiouing mill which
at that time was owned by Hilleboe
& Johnson. The new company was
incorporated under the name of Tbr
Warren Milling Company and Mr.
Lindberg has been its secretary and
treasurer contiually since. Although
the milling business has been his
chief business, he has been inter
ested more or less in many other
enterprises and activities, which
had for its object the upbuilding of
our city and the country tributary
thereto. Among other things he
was one of the charter members of
North Star College and served for a
The Only Sue
Engine on the
jjghe as a member of the Board of
directors. He has also served as a
gtember of the city council, where
ge tooK an active part in securing
Bany public improvements. In all
pfiis acts and dealings, whether pub
lic or private, he was always sin-,
cere and outspoken. There was.no
deception, in his nature. He will
be greatly missed in the business
circles of this city, which he loved
so well, and which he has done so
much to build up from the time that
it was a struggling hamlet.
But it was iii his home life that
Mr. Lindberg's character shows to
the bes(. advantage. As a kind and
loving husband and father he will
be missed most in the home now
overcast with sadness, 'j v'^'^fv!
John Lindberg was united in mar
riage to Ida Johnson in this city on
Sept. 7, 1889. To this union Ave
children have been born, namely
Aimer, Frances, Delia and Carrol
one daughter, Minnie, died in in
fancy. These, together with the
mother, are now. plunged into deep
est grief. Deceased leaves also one
brother, Herman Lindberg, and one
sister, Miss Sophy Lindberg, of this
place, and one sister Mrs. Flyberg,
of Norman county, to mourn his
loss. A large number of relatives
and a host of friends also stand sor
rowing at Mr. Lindberg's grave. Mr.
Lindberg's parents who moved here
from Carver a number of years af
ter he came here, died some years
During his long resideneve in
Warren, Mr. Lindberg has been an
active member of the Swedish Lu
theran church and contributed lib
erally to its support.
The funeral was held on Tuesday
afternoon this week. A short ser
vice was held at the late homo, con
ducted by Rev. G. Wahlund and
then the remains were taken to the
Swedish Lutheran church where an
impressive funeral, serjnon, was
preached in English by Rev. N.
Anderson. Rev. G. Wahlund spoke
in Swedish paying a beaiitifjii^tvii
the bereaved family. Rev. L. P.
Lundgren of Hallock, who had
known deceased from his boyhood
in Carver county, was.present at the
funeral, and added his tribute and
words of comfort. The choir also
rendered some specially prepared
hymns. The entire front of the
church was beautifully decorated
with flowers, and a profusion of
flowers adorned the handsome cof
fin, among them being a number of
set pieces artistically worked out in
nature's choicest flowers. One
piece was in the shape of a heart
inscribed "Brother", one represent
ed The Gates Ajar, inscribed "Fa-
ther," another was in ihe'shape of
a harp, inscribed "Friend" and still
another represented a lyre, and one
from the Odd Fellow lodge had the
emblem of the three links in colors
harmoniously blended. These beau
tiful floral tributes attested the love
and esteem in which deceased was
held. The church also was filled
to overflowing by relatives, friends
and old settlers who had come to
pay their last respect to his mem
ory. All the banks, stores and oth
er piaces of business were closed
out of respect, to his memory dur
ing the hour set for the funeral.
Among the relatives from out
were: John E. -Ostrom, of- Seattle,
Wash., brother of Mrs. Lindberg,
Mrs. Flyberg and Miss Ella Flyberg,
of Norman county. Miss Esther Fly
herg, of Baudette, Miss Elida Fly
berg, of Hibbing, Minn., Herman Al
len, of ^Alvarado, Mrs. OUo Allen,
Miss Emma Allen, Mr. and Mrs.
John Allen and Willham Allen, of
Radium, and Mr. and Mrs. Leonard
l'eUM-^on, of Thief Ri\er Falls.
The pall bearers weiv: L. M. Ol
son, C. A. Johnson, John Wcstman,
F.d Roscndahi. C. E. Sjostrand and
Ciu?t EKblad: and the honorary pall
hearers: J. U. Anderson, Gottl'red
Erickson, J. P. Mdltson. J. A. Blooin
quist, Fred Johnson and P. A. Lund
A large funeral procession cs-^
corted the remains to Greenwood
Cemetery, where thoy were con
signed to Mother Earth to await the
morn of the Resurerction. But the
memory of the good Husband, fath
er, friend and pioneer will always
be green in the hearts of those who
learned to know and love him.

sorrow, this community extends its
