Much Sympathy Expressed
KIRON, Aug. 27—Special—
The sad and tragic death of Mrs. A1

to her marriage resided at Kiron, oc
curred near Hecla, /S. I).t last week on
Monday, August ISth. WWle at work
getting dinner, on going into an ad
joining room to care for her baby, she
noticed something burning and going
back into the kitchen she found. the
oil stove in a blaze, one of the burners
evidently having been turned up too
high and having set fire to paper on a
shelf above the stove. Hastily she
picked up the oil stove to carry it out
doors and in so doing spilled oil from
the stove on tocher dress which imme
dately caught fire. Her call for help
quickly brought another lady in the
house to her aid and with a bucket of
water she quickly extinguished the
flames which had already burned her
severely ^bout the face and -breast.
Her husband who was at work in the
field some three miles away was sum
moned to the house at once and a doc
tor sent for and everything possible
that could be accomplished was done.
Her sufferings from the burns were
most severe until at 11 Q*kck at night
when her life passed out of time into
eternity. She was conscious up until
9 o'clock in the evening, when she
called her children and husband to
her bedside and commended them into
God's care and bade theni a touching
good bye, realising that she soon was
to leave them, and said site very soon
would join her little' daughter who left
the family circle last spring for the
home beyond* Shortly after bidding
the dear ones farewell she became un
conscious, in which state she remain
ed until 11 o'clock, when death re
leased her. Just before taking her
last 'breath a peaceful smile illuminat
ed her face as she spoke the name of
her darling daughter who had gone be
fore, and with that radiant smile on
her. countenaiKte-she passed out of this
vaje. of sorrow and unrest into the
of the celestial borne of her
aviour. was 'born in Sweeden
arid came with her parents to Craw
ford county, where they resided for so
many years, where she grew to wo
manhood and .on April IS, 1908 mar
ried Alfred 'Nordholm, a former Kiron
boy. Some thirteen years ago the
couple left Kiiron and moved to Hecla.
S. D., and after spending three years
at that place moved to Pine City,
Minn., where they resided until last
spring when they moved back to Hec
la to make their home. She was 37
years of age at the time of her death.
The funeral took place Thursday, short
services being held from the home, the
remains afterwards being conveyed to
the Methodist church In Hecla, where
the funeral services were held and the
remains laid to rest in the cemetery
at that place by the side of her daugh
ter. Mrs. Nordholm, formerly Miss
Hannah Sjogren, during her residence
in Kiron, was converted and baptized
and became a member of the Free Mis
sion church and lived a christian life
and died in the blessed trust in hope
of her Saviour and Maker end her tes
timony before leaving is a deep con
solation to the stricken ones, which
will help them considerably in their
severe trial to know that the dear wife
and mother taken away from them is
safe at home in the celestial abode
beyond, there to look and wait for
their coming. She has a host of
friends and acquaintances in Kiron
who favorably remember her and who
now join the stricken ones in mourn
ing her death. She was a very ami
able woman, a true friend, a^ne wife
and most devoted to her children hus
band and home. Besides her husband
she leaves seven children, the oldest
being seventeen years old and the
youngest thirteen months old, an aged
mother, Mrs. A. G. Sjogren, one broth
er and two sisters residing at North
Branoh, Minn., and other relatives And
friends. The deepest sympathy orthe
entire community goes out to the be
reaved husband and children in their
unspeakable loss. Alfred Nordholm
is a son of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Nord
holm, of Kiron and a brother of Mrs.
John Lass of Denison, who with her
husband left for Hecla upon learning
of the accident and who remained
for the funeral. Mrs. A. G. Sjogren,
the mother at North Branch, upon
learning of the accident, left at once
for Hecla, 'but arrived too late to see
.her daughter before, death had' releas
ed her from her sufferings. We are
indebted to Mrs. John Lass for Qe de
tails of the sad event.

County Attorney Bell Receives In
structions From 8tate to Collect
Delinquent Auto Tax
Many Owners Who Have Sold or
funked Their Cars Fail to Make Re
port to Secretary of 8tate
County Attorney Andy ®ell is after
Crawford county automobile owners
who have failed to pay their motor
fees for last year and this year to the
secretary of state at Des Moines. A
list of 938 delinquents residing in this
county was .sent to the county attor
ney with instructions that he take he
matter up with them and see that the
fees are paid,
'Last week Mr. Bell seiit 'out notices
to the delinquent owners and since
then from twentyfive to fifty have vis
ited his office each day and made prop
er settlement. Already over $300.00
in delinquent fee* and penalties has
been paid in to him.
Mr. Bell states that the chief trouble
is the fault of the owners of care not
notifying the secretary of state of a
transfer of ownership and these cars
are on his books belonging to him.
In many "instances owners have junk
ed 'their cars and have failed to noti
fy the secretary of state to this effect
and of course the fees are charged
against them. These matters' are be
ing straightened out by the former
owners by signing affidavits stating
thai the car was transferred or junked.
Instructions have gone out from 'Des
Moines for officers' to be on the look
out for all njachlnes not carrying the
1919 license plate® and arrest drivers
of such cars. County Attorney Bell
will give the delinquents in this coun
ty a few more days of grace and then
will notify officers to arrest all drivers
who-have not complied with the law.

authors could be recited almost word
for word up until the time of her
death. On various occasions, her con
tributions were accepted by many of
the leading papers Of the state, and
also some of the more prominent mag
azines. Mrs. Mathews so lived that
she had rarely experienced a day of
lillness and up until death came, she
was free from any ailments. She had
often remarked that as far as her
physical and mental condition was
concerned, she was in perfect health,
but -she realized 'that with the coming
of old age infirmities would overtake
her, and she expected to be called
without suffering. She died while
peacefully sleeping.

Well Known DruBgist to Move to the
Building Now Occupied by Willard
Service Station This Fall
Thf R. Knaul drug store will change
locations some time this fall and will
occupy the Miller building where the
Denison Storage 'Battery company and
the Model Electric company are now
located. The stock will be moved as
soon as these two concerns move into
their new building just north of the
post office.
Mr. Knaul is indeed fortunate to se
cure such a fine location as the Miller
building, located as it is in-the heart
of the business district. The room is
amply large enough to accommodate
his fixtures and will maJte alight and
airy toon*.
The'reason* for this change of loca
tion of "the Kikaul drug store is due to'
the fact that the First National bank
desires to enlarge their banking room
and are going to install additional
vaults. The First National has owned
for a number of years the building oc
cupied by the Knaui drugstore^
