Obituary.
The New London Times gives the
lollowiug particulars of the deceased
M. O. Olson, whose death we men
tioned in last issue:
Mr, Olson was born in Bjorketorp,
Westergotland, Sweden, Feb. 19th,
1820. In 1841 he married came to
United States in 1854, and shortly
after his arrival his wife died. Six
chilaren were born him in his first
marriage, all of whom are dead. In
1855 he married a second time. He
lived at Peru, 111., about seven years
and came to Carver county, this state,
in 1861. He came to Nest Lake, this
county (then Monongalia county) the
jear following, but must soon after
tlee for the Indians. In 1864 he re
turned again to this county and lived
on his homestead a mile and a half
west of this village until about six
years ago, when he built a house and
moved into town.
Mr. Olson always took an active in
terest in religious work and has
served as deacon in the Sw. Lutheran
church here, continuously for 28
years, with the exception of one term
and died a Christian, steadfast in his
faith.
His second wife, with whom he had
eight children, four of whom .are dead,
died Jan. 21st, 1898.
A few months ago the old gentleman
was married to Mrs. Emma Peterson,
of Kandiyohi- For the iast few
months he'has been failing somewhat
physically and mentally, and death
was welcome to him. He leaves a
widow and four sons William, who
lives in Spicer, Alfred, of Minneapo
lis, Victor, who now owns the old
homestead, and Martin, of Webster,

WILLMAR,
LIES AND SLANDERS
Usually react upon their authors.
A certain insurance agent of Willmar
and a member of the insurance trust
has been circulating the statement
that the Minneapolis Fire and Marine
Mutual Insurance Co., which is repre
sented by F. P. Olney had a policy on
the building known as the Bonde
building which was recent'y damaged
by fire and refused to pay. Also that
the company is not good and does not
promptly pay its losses. The facts
are that neither the company nor Mr.
Olney had a policy on that building
nor the contents and it was a "board"
company that did the kicking if any
was done, but then these people must
say something to induce people to pay
two prices for their insurance, and a
man who will enter into a combination
to do up his neighbors and friends
must not be expected to tell the truth
where a lie will make him a dollar.
