John R. Brockelsby, of Hays town
ship, died June 23, 1911, and was
buried June 25th at Vail. Deceased
was born September 19, 1844, at Lin
colnshire, England, and was at the
time of his death about sixty-seven
years of age. His death was a shock
to his neighbors. He seemed to enjoy
good health for several years past and
last Saturday he was in Vail as was
his usual habit, in good spirits, friend
ly and jolly. His death was caused
by a tumor of some kind that affected
his brain. He was well respected by
his neighbors and his word was as
good as. his bond. He was strictly
honest in his dealings with those he
came in contact with. He emigrated
to this country from England in 1868
and located in Clinton county. Shortly
after his arrival in Clinton county he
was married to Miss Cousins, who sur
vives him. In 1874 he and his wife
came to Crawford county and settled
in Hays township, which was thinly
settled at that time. There were born
to Mr. and Mrs. Brockelsby nine chil
dren, three of whom died young. The
six still living in and around Vail are
W. H., Charles E., George Thomas,
John Earl, Alice and James. In ac
cordance with his wishes while living
funeral services were held at his
home, Rev. C. A. Corbet, of Sioux City,
conducting the services, which were
quite elaborate. After the services at
his home the Yeomen society, of
which he was a member, took charge
of the funeral. His remains were
followed to the cemetery by the larg
est funeral procession seen here for
a long time.
A pretty wedding was solemnized
at St. Ann's church Wednesday morn
ing, June 21, 1911, at 8:30, when

formed the ceremony. The bride was
attired in white Swiss satin, made em
pire over messaline, and wore a bridal
veil aud carried a shower boquet of
lilies of the valley and bride's roses.
The bridesmaid, Miss Lillian Cranny,
sister of the bride, wore dress of
friiitS chiffon over yellow silk, and
carried a boquet of bride's roses. Dr.

•brother of the groom, acted as best
ffiafl: Miss Pauline Cranny plityed the
wedding ttfcflcht The ushers at the
church Were Melvin Mickey and .Jesse1
Cranny. At the conclusion of the
cereniony a teuf-edlli'se wedding break
fast was served at the home of the
bride's parents. Both the young people
are well known, highly estimable and
very popular with their many friends,
who extend best wishes and hearty
congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Booher

On last Tuesday, June 20th, at the
hour of four p. m., at the home of the

eldest daughter, Rifi' Z,, to Mr. Fred
Daudel, of Hawkeye, Iowa. The cere
mony, which was performed by Rev.
A. L. Curtis, of Missouri Valley, took
place in the big bay window in the
dining room, which was a bower of
beauty in its decoration of elder blos
soms and wild grape vines and fruit.
There were no bridesmaids. Grace
Russell and Irene Smith preceded the
bridal couple down the stair and to
their places in the bay window. The
ring service was used, Leona Gable
carrying the ring in a white rose. The
ceremony being concluded, the rela
tives and guests came forward to give
the newly wedded couple greetings
and congratulations. All sat down.to
partake of a dainty two-course lun
cheon, one of the kind for which Mrs.
Odell is famous. The bride was
gowned in white net over blue silk,
the groom wearing the conventional
black. The gifts to the bride were
many and beautiful, being chiefly cut
glass, nand painted china, silver and
many articles of, house furnishing.
The bride has lived here for years
and is known as a girl of sweet dis
position. She has been absent for the
past few years while attending school
at Cedar Falls and later teaching in
the high school at Hawkeye, at which
place she met her future husband and
where he wooed and won his bride.
The groom is a stra'nger here, but is
a nice appearing young man and those
who haVe met him say he seems to
be of strong character and of the type
that makes good. The out of town
guests present were: J. W. Odell, of

Halsey Odell and wife, Omaha Flor

community go with them to theiy
home. May they be happy, prosper

The wjiole community was shocked
last Saturday when word was passed
around that Mrs. Cora Green, wife of
Earl Green, was dead at her home
near Rockwell City, after a week's
illness. Cora B. Steritt was born in
Crawford county, Iowa, Feb. 10, 1888.
She was united in marriage to D. E.
Green July 15, 1908. One child, a boy,
was born to them, who, with a hus
band, is left to mourn her loss. She
also leaves a father, mother, four
brothers and three sisters. To lose a
gentle, kind and loving mother as is
the loss of this boy, and a faithful,
helpful wife, as is the bereavement
of this husband, is the greatest of
afflictions and in this dark hour their
many friends grieve with them and ex
tend to them their tenderest sym
pathy. She died June 24, 1911, aged
23 years, 4 months and 14 days. The
funeral sermon was preached by Rev.
Koser at the M. E. church Sunday at
3 o'clock in the afternoon, and a large
concourse of friends followed the re
mains to their last resting place. Out

Grove Mrs. Charles Green and Roy
Green, both of Rolfe, Iowa, and Ells
wortn Green, of Emmettsburg, Iowa.
Miss Helen Bell returned Monday
from a visit with friends at Omaha

in the respective churches at 8:00. Let

Warning.
Local boards of health should re
quest that at least one druggist in
their respective towns should have on
hand a supply of antitetanic serum
for the saving of life from Fourth of
July injuries.
The journal of the American Medi
cal association in June, 1910, gave the
following simple rules to be followed
in the treatment of every blank cart
ridge or puncture wound:
1. Inject subcutaneously 1,5000
units of antitentanic serum and con
tinue the injection if indications of
possible tetanus arise.
2. Freely incise every wound.
3. Carefully and thoroughly remove
from the wound every particle of for
eign matter.
4. Causterize the wound thorough
ly with a 25 per cent solution of
phenol (carbolic acid) in glycerin or
alcohol.
5. Apply a loose, wet boric acid
pack.
6. In no case should the wound be
closed. It should be allowed to heal
by granulation. The dressing and
packing should be removed every day
and fresh dressings applied.
Recent results go to show that the
subcutaneous injection of an immun
izing dose of tetanus antitoxin is a
sure method of preventing the dis
ease. In all cases where garden dirt,
stable dust, manure, paper wads or
powder from cartridges have been
ground or forced into the injured Us
es, a preventive dose of tetanus
antitoxin should be given subcutan
eously at the time the wound is
dressed, or as soon after as is pos
sible.
Particular and insistent recommen
dation is made to every health officer
to act now and secure a supply of te
tanus antitoxin—if not already sup
plied—before the period of Fourth of
July accidents, which so imperatively
require the preventive use of this an
titoxin. Be sure that the remedy is
at hand and employ every means to
urge this prophylactic of tetanus in
every case of wound.—Iowa State
