Nellie F. Fowler, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. T. Fowler, was born on
a farm in Honey Creek Township,
Delaware County, Iowa, on August
17th, 1880. She died at the home of
her parents, in Edgewood, Iowa, on
January 19th, 1916, at the age of 35
years, 5 months and 2 days. Her
home continued at the family resi
dence on the farm, until about six
years ago, when with her parents,
Frank Toomer, at jshe removed to Greeley, Iowa. Two
years later they purchased a resi-
idence property in Edgewood, Iowa,
where th-y have since resided. On
January 17th, 1915, a year and two
days before she left this world,
Nellie united with the Congregation
al church at Edgewood, and continu
ed a most faithful and worthy mem
ber. She was president of the Chris
tian Endeavor Society, a position
she filled with ability, and to the
work of which she gave her energy
with untiring devotion. In the Sun
day school she was always present
when her health permitted, and in
her faithfulness, was an example
to all. No one could have been call
ed away, who would have been more
missed than will she, and each one
with' whom she has thus been asso
ciated, will feel a personal loss, and
will mourn her absence. Three bro

with the parents are left to mourn
the departure of this loved one. Fun-,
eral services were held in the Con
gregational church in Edgewood, on
Saturday, January 22nd, at 10 o'clock,
a. m., and were conducted by the
pastor, Mrs. C. W. Smith, assisted
by Rev. G. L. Heiserman of Edge
wood, and Rev. E. E. Starrs, of Gree
ley, The remains were taken to Gree
ley, and laid to rest in the family
burial lot at that place. A large gath
ering of people completely filled the
church at the impressive services,
while the silent form reposed be
neath the beautiful floral offerings
from her S. S. class, the C. E. so

still were the tears which silently
told of the affection for the departed
in which all' shared.

The journey to Des Moines was al
most a continuous ovation, but the
president did not draw all the cheers.
At Davenport, where he gave the first
of his five-minute rtilks, 15,000 persons
cheered him when he appeared on the
rear platform of his car.
"It encoift&ges me very much to

president began. As he stopped for

I have," answered Mr. Wilson, who

Teeth Chatter at Iowa City.
President Wilson's teeth chattered
and his breath froze about his face
when he stood before the residents of
Iowa City. Before he left the national
capital, he said, "they told me there
was some kind of lethargy and indif
ference in this part of the country to
preparation for national defense, but
I have seen evidence to me that there
is nothing of the kind."
About 2,000 students of the Univer
sity of Iowa, all in uniform and mili-.
tary formation, were at the station
when the president arrived. They
greeted him with the college yell.
"I need not tell you, my fellow citi
zens," the president said, "that I love
peace profoundly, and that I will do
everything within my power to pre
serve it. I know that the love of peace
is the predominant passion of the
American people, but in the world as
it is now disturbed we do not control
the movement of affairs.

over which we have no control may at

MEXICAN CHIEF SLAIN
GENERAL ORNELAS TAKEN FROM
TRAIN AND KILLED.
Former Commander at Juarez Is Ex
ecuted by Villa Troops Near
El Paso, Tex., Feb. 2.—Former sol
diers of the disbanded Villa army' of
the north were responsible, according
to information brought here, for the
killing of General Tomas Ornelas, for
mer commandant at Juarez, who was
taken from a Mexican Central train, a
few miles north of Chihuahua City
and shot to death after other passen
gers, including two or three Ameri
cans, had been robbed, and the mails
and express boxes rilled.
Ornelas, charged with treachery by
Villa, a short time before the garrison
at Juarez surrendered to agents of
Carranza in December, saved his life
by a flight to the American side of the
border. He \yas afterward granted
The belief is expressed here that
information of his departure from
Juarez for Chihuahua City was com
municated by spies to the bandits,
who lay in wait between the stations
of Laguna and Suas, a few miles north
of Chihuahua City, and held up the
train, robbed the passengers, and then
carried out Villa's sentence of death.
This exploit was the first intimation
that bandits were operating so close
to the Chihuahua state capital, where
Carranza military officials claim to
have a garrison of 3,000 men.
