conscious to the last.

to Joseph Baer. Soon after their
marriage they came to New Ulm where

the same house on North Broadway and
the^neighborhood in which she lived
so long will hardly seem the same
with her gone. Her husband preceded
her in death. February 17, 1902..

Mrs. Joseph Gabriel, St. Paul

noble woman. ,.
