Was born in Green county, Wis., June
23,1884, and came to Mower county,

ents on a farm south of Austin until
two years ago when her father pur
chase the Towers'hotel in Lyle where
she has lived until her death. She was
married July 4.1902, to S. A. Johnson
Of Lyle. Bright prospects and high
hopes centering in a lovely character
a womanly woman, a true friend, an
affectionate wife, are laid away with
her mortal body, but we see in contrast
the more beautiful life beyond this
vale of tears. Yes, she is gone, and it
is like a dream to those left to mourn
what seems an untimely death/ Rev,
C. D. Beldenof Austin conducted the
funeral obsequies at Enterprise Friday
afternoon and spoke from 1 Samuel
20:3, "There is But a Step Between Me
and Death" and his hearers were forci
bly reminded that we are all close to
the same dark river. Her sickness was
of only, a short duration although she
had known for some time that she was
not going to stay long here, and had so
told those nearest and dearest to her,
She made her wishes known as to the
arrangements of the last sad rites and
during the days and nights of suffering
she never murmured nor complained
She bore the pain with great fortitude
and when the end came at 7 o'clock
Wednesday morning she passed to the
great beyond in silent peace. As she
was in life so she was in death. The
large attendance to the last resting
place plainly showed the high esteem
in which she wafe held i)y those with
whom she had been acquainted. She
leaves behind to mourn her absence a
loving husband, an infant daughter,
also rather and mother,, three sisters
and five brothers besides numerous
other relatives and hosts of loving
Peaceful in the grave so low
Thou no more wilt join oar numbers,
Thou no more Our Sorrows know
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When this spark of life has fled,
And again In Heaven to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed."

proven so much of a success that imitations
galore have sprung up this year. All claim
"they are just as good as the MONITOR/'
and some cheaper, buf they are not as good.
They have never been tried and tested.
It's It.
You know, or your neigh-
bor does, just what the MONITOR will do.
They are the best you ever saw or heard of
and always will be. Like all imitations,
these cheaper machines bear a faint resem
blance to the MONITOR, hut they fail to
have the main features. The MONITOR is
protected with ELEVEN U. S. PATENTS.
Dealers liandle. cheaper imitation machines
because they can make more money on
them. If you insist on having a MONI
TOR you can get it. Go and see our agents,
