Obituary WILLIAM ROBERTS TOYNTON William Roberts Toynton was bom August 3, 1885 on ther old Toynton farm a half mile North of Edgerton, where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Will iam Toynton Sr., made their home. Orphaned early in life, Will was reared and cared for by his grand parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Toyn ton. His education was obtained in the graded and high schools at Edg erton. On April 12, 1917, Mr. Toynton was united in marriage to Hattie Marie Slagg, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Slagg, formerly of Al bion Prairie, now of Atascadero, California. To this union a daughter Bonnibel was bom August 23, 1918. On Friday, October 4, the young husband and father was stricken with influenza, rapidly developing in to pneumonia, which caused his death on Friday, October 11, just one week later. This untimely end was a shock to the entire community. William Toyn ton, commonly called “Bill,” was known and loved by everyone, espe cially the children, who could always draw a smile and a cherry welcome from his lips. He was an intense lover of nature, of animals, and of outdoor sports. His word was his honor; and universally respected. A giant in physique, his heart was still larger, so that he never stooped to any mean or unkind act. The numberless kind deeds he performed endeared him to everyone with whom he came in contact. How, hard, then, must the parting be for the near and dear ones he has left behind. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife and infant daughter, his three cousins, John and Lila Toynton of this city, Bessie Toynton of Spokane, Washington, and a host of friends. Funeral services were held at the Watts farm, .just East of the 6ity limits, where Mr. and Mrs. Toynton have made their home since their marriage, at one-thirty Monday aft ernoon October 14th. The services were conducted by Rev. Hooton of Edgerton. Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Ro berts of Fort Atkinson rendered a touching duet “Asleep in Jesus.” Those present from out-of-town included; Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Ro berts, Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Roberts, and Floyd Roberts of Fort Atkinson; Mr. and Mrs. John Slagg, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Simpson, Mrs. Otto Krue ger and Mr. F. A. North of Albion; and Mr. C. M. Slagg of Madison. MRS. HENRY PIERCE. Harriet Belle Park was born Sep tember 26, 1886 and died October 7, 1918. Growing into bright girlhood, vivacious and yet studious, she after graduating from the High School at Milton Junction became for* seven years a successful teacher, greatly loved by her pupils and prized by the school communities. She was happily married to Henry E. Pierce March 18. 1911. ' The men tal and moral qualities of Mrs. Hen ry Pierce have been recognized as of high order. She early consecrated herself to the service of the Lord Jesus, was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She was always ready for active duty and efficient in its dis charge, having held the offices in Newville of S. S. Superintendent and President of the Young People’s So ciety. She was always thinking and planning for the good of others and like her Lord and Master unselfish, and full of kindness. She was deep ly affectionate and devoted to the dear ones of the heme counting it a delight to give up a year of her work as a teacher to tenderly care for her much beloved father in his sickness. The charming traits of her charac ter for which her memory will be lovingly cherished blossomed in the vernal toil of her nature as natural ly as any of God’s flowers grow. Our God makes no mistakes. “God gives us love, something to love, He leads us then when love is grown to ripeness That on which it throve, Falls off, and love is left alone.” We know where Harriet has gone She is with Jesus, the wife, the Sister the Child of our affection. Gone where she no longer needs our protection, and Christ him self doth dwell. We will be patient, vassage the feeling We may not wholly stay By silence, sanctifying not con cealing The grief that must have way. The relatives left to mourn her loss are her husband, Henry E. Pierce, her mother, Mrs. Park, her twin sister, Violet and another sis ter, Mrs. L. A. Anderson of Rugby, North Dakota. —We have for sale a Ford with a Marfer ton truck attachment, platform body, cab and windshield complete. This car is just overhauled and in A 1 shape.

Pennsylvania. Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 9, 1918. Now that the 1918 tobacco crop has been harvested, with none of it having been sold on the field (fully three-fourths of it having been sold in that manner last year), there is much speculation among both growers and packers about the buying of ihe crop. Some packers who have investigated the situation are now convinced that the grower upon being approached rel ative to the sale of the tobacco will not speak in terms of thirty cents and up ward. One prominent packer, who has an order for several thousand cases of tobacco, makes the assertion that he can go out among the growers and buy all he needs at less than twenty cents. As yet there has been no indication of a sign of buying on the part of the big concerns. For this reason the smaller packers with orders on hand for tobacco are making no attempt to make purchases, feeling assured that when the time comes for buying that they will be able to fill all their de mands. To start buying now would be to give pretty much what the growers demand. To delay until the big inter ests show whether they are going to buy or not would mean in case of the latter event a big tumble in prices, which it is worth while to wait for; in short, there is everything to be gained by delay and nothing to lose. Among the dealers in tobacco prices for old goods are lower now than they were two months ago. New England. Springfield, Mass., Oct. 8, 1918. With the New England tobacco crop safely housed, and never in the history of the industry in better condition, at this date as regards the cure, interest turns to the warehouse season, prob able prices which the manufacturers will pay for the new crop, and in a gen eral way to the 1919 outlook. The amount of tobacco in the barns is easily the largest on record. The acreage planted would insure this if the crop was only normal as regards weight. Early in July there were in dications that irreparable loss had been suffered through drouth. Rain came at the psychological moment and the crop made a recovery little short of miraculous. This does not mean that there were no lasting effects from the drouth. Asa matter of fact hundreds of acres were stunted in the weeks in which no rain fell. Estimates vary widely concerning the probable yield. The percentage of the sungrown acreage which was primed was larger than ever before. The sun grown crop should yield a big supply of wrappers. Every wrapper, of course, means one less binder leaf. In any case the largest supply of binder to bacco in recent years is assured. +++. Auction Sale.
