Since last January Mr. and Mrs. Clark, whose home is on Randolph street in this city, have been staying with their eldest son who lives at Stoughton. Mr. Clark has not been in good health for several years, and since last new year his ail ments increased, and during the last couple months he was confined to his bed, until death came and released him from his trials. The body was brought down to Edgerton to be prepared for burial. Spencer Clark was born in New York state Jan. 27, 1840. In ihe early sixties he came west together with his parents who settled in the town of Al bion on a farm some distance south of the Gravel Store corner. In 1860, on the 24th of May he was united in mar riage to Miss Emilie White, and if the Lord had spared him until the 24th of this month, Mr. and Mrs. Clark could have celebrated the golden anniversary of their wedding day. Two sons and one daughter came to bless their home; the eldest, Eugene, and the youngest, Fred, live at Stough ton; the daughter, May, died many years ago as the wife of Wm. Bardeen, and left one daughter, Esther, now liv ing at Madison. These children and grandchildren together with Mrs. Clark are mourning the loss of a kind, up right, and worthy man. Mr. Clark was a mason by trade, but he was a man unusually clever with his hands and could do mo3t anything that he had in his mind to undertake. Many years ago he was a member of the firm of Toynton & Clark in the gro cery and bakery business. He was known throughout the neighboring vi cinity for the sorghum mill that he op erated here, and gave his attention to this work for more than half a century, lie was a devoted member of the M. E. church and a staunch and earnest advocate of the cause of temperance, and at one time belonged to the order of Good Templars. The funeral services were conducted from the home and from the M. E. church Friday at 2:30 p. m., and the body laid to rest in Fassett Cemetery. The Rev. Boyd W. Kramer officiated at the church and the grave. WHITFORD. Minette Ernestine Coon, daughter of Daniel and Drusilla Coon, was born De cember first, 1862, at Albion, Wiscon sin, where she grew to womanhood. She graduated from Albion academy and attended boarding scnool at Wal worth, Wis. On March 25, 1882, she was married to William Henry Whitford of the same vicinity and together they started life on a farm, where they remained two years. Mr. Whitford fitted himself for a teacher and spent the years after 1893 in the educational work of the state of lowa. As the wife of a school superin tendent, she took an active part in the church and social circles of every com munity in which she lived, and left in every place a host of friends and ad mirers whose lives were richer for her genuine kindness and sympathetic un derstanding. She was a devoted member of the Congregational church, always inter ested in furthering the work of her Master. Mrs. Whitford was for years a mem ber of the Order of the Eastern Star, accepting office and attending meetings whenever her health permitted. Later she joined the White Shrine at Cedar Rapids, dropping her membership there to become a charter member of the chapter at Cedar Falls. Always deeply interested in these organizations, it was most fitting that she should be chosen the first honorary member of the Achoth Sorority which is composed of college Eastern Star girls. The Home, Social and Literary society was honored by her membership as was also the Woman’s club. Having made Cedar Falls her home for some fifteen years, she leaves a host of friends and neighbors who will deeply feel her loss. She is survived by her husband and their only child, Mrs. James A. Hos kins of Waterloo, who has been almost constantly with her mother during her last illness. With them also is a nephew, Earl Whitford, wi o was re garded as a son of the fa nily during his college course here. A brother, D. F. Whitford of Edgerton, Wis., came to be with the family at this time. Mrs. Whitford was always cherry, despite years of suffering, was ever an inspiration, and her brave spirit in passing leaves a benediction.

Mrs. J. Bates and Family, Mrs. Ida Bates and Family. Letter from Argentina. Through the courtesy of Mrs. A. Thompson, The Reporter has again ob tained permission to tell a few things about Buenos Aires, the present home of a former Edgerton girl, Mrs. R. Holmes, who together with her hus band are there as representatives for the General Motors company. She says among other things: “We have an apartment of seven rooms with bath on the second floor. The rooms are large and airy and fur nished in the foreign fashion prevailing here, and we are very comfortable. We have a balcony where we can sit and view the street. Front porches are not in use here. Most houses are built close to ther sidewalks as the stores are in the States, but the homes are built around an open court called a patio, genendly paved, with flowers and small shrubbery and often a foun tain. All homes have a patio. Houses built in the style of the U. S. are few and far between. In the morning we have coffee and rolls served in our room at 8:00; break fast is served at 12:30; at 4:30 tea is served in our room if we are at home; dinner at 8:00 in the evening. The shows open at 9:00 or 9:30 in the even ing. People who are not tied to an of fice sleep during the warm day and be gin to wake up about midnight. Buenos Aires is a city of about two million people and has many fine stores. The traffic is taken care of by tram ways, subways, autos and many old fashioned, but comfortable, horse drawn coaches. That is the cheapest convey ance, and in many ways the most com fortable. The buildings are not tall even down town. Mild earthquakes visit this part of the country, and sky scrapers would not be a safe proposi tion. The days are warm, but the evenings are cool and pleasant. Christmas at midsummer was a great disappointment to us. It did not seem like Christmas at all, except for the gifts which accompanied the season also here. There are many American and Eng lish people living here, and there is considerable entertaining.” Mrs. Holmes describes quite fully their journey across the Andes moun tains from Valparaiso (Vale of Para dise) to Buenos Aires via Santiago and many other interesting towns and cities. The scenery of the Andes is described as most beautiful, and the ascent of the railway takes one from the lux urient vegetation in the valley to the bare rocks and snowclad peaks, cliffs and gorges of the South American Rockies. Crystal lakes glitter in the sunlight, and streams pitch in wild falls down from the heights into the valleys below. The highest point of the cross ing is 10,486 feet above sea level. Coming down from the mountains the road stretches over large plains of fertile farmland like our own prairies with great cattle ranches, wheat fields, corn and other grains. Ostrich farms are also common. The slopes toward the Argentine plains are covered with fruit farms and vinyards. The grapes were as large as small walnuts. “On the whole, while conditions, na ture, the people and the language and customs are different than those we are used to, it is a most interesting and at tractive land, and we are very happy here, ( ” says Mrs. Holmes.
