dence in the east part of Denison on
Monday April 5, at 9 in the morning,
after a sickness lasting over many
months. We would be remiss in our
duty toward one of the old time set
tlers of oar county did we not give
more than usual notice to the passing
away of Mr. Schelm. He was one of
the Germans to whose sterling worth,
untiring energy and business ability,
is due the making of the northwest
portion of this county from a barren
prairie to one of the garden spots of
Iowa. He came to the county among
the first of the Germans with little
capital and in a few years became the
owner ot a fine farm in Hanover
township and later of land in and
about Ainsworth. Neb., and property
in Denison.
Carl Schelm was born at Mark Hol

America, making his home with an
uncle, Mr. Bretthauer. at Preston.

.to Miss Minnie Sutrow and to them
were born four children. After thirteen
years oi happy married life, his wife
died. His little children needing a
mother's care, about a year after he
married Freda Fehnierling Kaysel.
Their marriage took place on Nov.
28, 188(5. He was most fortunate in
his choice for the new mother was all
that a mother should be to his little
ones and he was a natural father to
her two orphan children Two children
were born to them. Gustav, who died
at the age of eleven months, and
Getrge who is at hprne. now aged 16
For over eight months he had been
in failing health. He and his wife
tried a change in climate and they
went to New Mexico and Denver, but
he made no gain an they came back
to Denison Nov. 12th last. In time
dropsy set in and this with asthma
and the other diseases caused his
death on Monday last. Of course all
was done to help him in the wav of
medical aid and good nursing. Mrs.
Jesse!, a professional nurse and a
friend of the family, came from Ains
worth. Neb., to nurse him.
Mr. Schelm leaves his devoted wife
and -the following children: Minnie,
Mriri'Herman Baak of Soldier town
ship: Dorette. Mrs. Fred Hermsmeyer
of Johnstown, Neb.: Albert who is in
Brown county, Nebraska and William

George, the youngest boy, who is at
home He and his wife had also made
a home for his cousin's daughter. Etta
Bretthauer, who was looked upon as
their own chlid. He also leaves his
brother George who lives at Charter
Oak and brother William who resides
at Ainsworth.
Mr. Schelm was a man of small
stature, but he was a bundle of
nerves and energy. He was a kind
husband and father and worthy citizen.
The funeral will be held on Wednes
day April 17th, at the Lutheran church
in this city, services at ten a.
There will be further services connect
ed with his burial at the cemetery in
Hanover township.
We wish to express our thanks to
the friends and neighbors who were
so kind during the long illness of our
husband and father. You did much to
relieve the awful strain upon us, and
we are most thankful to you for it.
Mrs. Carl Schelm and Family.
During the days attending the ill
ness and death of our little boy we
were much helped by the kindness of
our neighbors and friends. We shall
ever remember with gratitude your

Presence of Rev. Shinn at Dow City
Recalls Pioneer Days.
Rev. Shinn is still well remembered
by many of the older people as he was
instrumental in organizing the Metho
dist church 37 years ago. He conduct
ed meetings in the Comfort school
house northwest of Dow City, holding
meetings for tsn successive nights,
when a church was organized and ser
vices continued regularly by the
preachers from Denison. until 1876
when Dow City was set off by the
Conference as a separate society. The
railroad station was built in the fall
of '70 and a school house in '71 in
what is now Dow City, the place of
holding services being transferred to
the village services, and continued in
the school house until the building of
the church in 1877, with the exception
of about a year when the cheese fac
tory was used, in which there were
many delightful meetings held. It
was very gratifying to Mr. Shinn to
see the development of the society
and the beautiful church with such
a large membership. Many of the
younger people do not realize just how
much those early church services
meant to the pioneers, and the won
derful help in the development of our
Mr Shinn was pleased to meet so
many former friends after an absence
of 33 years from the neighborhood.
Many kind words in appreciation of
his visit were extended to him. and a
liberal collection given for his service
in the church with the hope expres
sed that he may be spared for years
to do much more good in the world.
