As noted last last week Willie
Christensen went to work and put up
a new house on the north of the Jus
tesen & Son's store, but the feed stable
has turned into a veritable blacksmith
shop with Mr. Christensen at the
head of it and Mr. S. Jeppersen, a
practical blacksmith, to do the work.
It may be alright but the community
can't see where two shops can both
run and make it profitable.
Miss Bonita Bryan, a graduate from
Drake College of Oratory and English,
gave a pleasing recital at the M. E.
church, Tuesday evening, under the
auspices of the Epworth League.
Her audience was not what her en
tertainment deserved, but was a
highly appreciative one, our best
literary people being in attendance.
She is pronounced by far the best
elocutionist appearing before a Coon
Rapids audience. She has excellent
talent in this line and her platform
work is of the best. The audience
was delighted with her well chosen
selections, and should she again de
cide to come before our people she
can be assured of a full house.—Coon
Rapids Citizen.
Mrs. Isaac Worley Dead.
Rebecca Holden was born in Bed

In 1838 she was married to Isaac
Worley in Bedford county and soon
after they removed to Blandinville,
111. Here two of their sons, Jesse and
Marion were taken from them by
death. Four or five years later Mr.
and Mrs. Worley removed to this
county where they have lived ever
since. In 1888 their son, Edward
Worley died. The children now re
maining are John L. Worley of For
mosa, Kansas Will II. Worley of Au
dubon Mrs. W. II. Warner, of Ham
lin and their daughter-in-law, Mrs.
Maggie Worley, of this city.
Mrs. Worley was a good woman,
one who strove to follow in the foot
steps of Him who died that men
be saved. Through all the four score
years and more of her life she followed
His teachings and at all times was a
consistent Christian, a good wife and
mother. The world can ill afford to
lose such women as she. The funeral
services were held yesterday (Thurs
day) at the home and the interment
made in the Atlantic cemetery.—
Cass County Democrat, Nov. 12.
