Never before has death caus ed so universal, so sincere, so heart felt an expression of sorrow, and there is mourning, genuine and unaf fected in our city. With loyal and loving heart, and with purest hands she faithfully discharged the duties of daughter, sister, wife and mother. She was pure of soul, kind of heart, generous disposition, devoted and faithful to all public trust. This brave and tender woman, this oak and rock, this vine and flower has passed to silence and pathetic dust, to that glorious world, where there is no more night, and where the sunbeam of love is eternal. The funeral of Mrs. Rice will take place at 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon on Monday, February 16, 1914. There for, as this hour is given to contem plate the grand example, a rich inher itance, a noble life worthily ended, I, E. C. Wellin, Mayor of the City of Willmar, Minn., hereby request and direct that all factories, shops, stores, offices and all other places of busi ness be closed and remain closed on Monday, February 16, between the hours of 1:30 o'clock p. m. and 4:00 o'clock p. m. of that day, And I res pectfully urge that every citizen of Willmar abstain from work on that day between the hours named, And that those who are unable to accom pany the remains to its last peaceful resting place, there to say farewell for a very little while to Mrs. Rice, that they observe that hour in their homes and bend with solemn thoughtfulness and render there the offerings of a faithful tear. Yet let the tribute be in silence between God and our soul. Dated at Willmar, Minnesota this 14th day of February, A D. 1914. E. C. WELLIN, Mayor.
