Last Saturday morning, September
2, 1!)22, the sad news came to Ham
burg that Mr. Nick Wells, who for a
number of years has been a resident
of our town, had passed away at two
forty-five o'clock that morning at the
home of his brother in Monticello.
Mr. Wells was born September 1,
1S73. and came to Hamburg a num
ber of years ago to make ids home.
He was married to Miss Willie White
side, who with their little daughter,
Carolyn, and two brothers and two
sisters survive him.
Mr. Wells was one of our best citi
zens, prominent in church and busi
ness circles of Hamburg. He was local
manager of the Dermott Grocer Co.
In the Methodist church he was one
of the leading and most active officials,
Chairman of the Board of Stewards
and a teacher in the Sunday school.
He possessed thi* true Christian spirit,
the spirit of unselfishness, thinking of
the comfort and welfare of others,
rather than self. In his church work
he never tried to shift the hard tasks
to others, but always willing to carry
the biggest burden himself and ask
ing others to do the easiest task.
Funeral services were conducted in
the Methodist church in his native
town. Monticello. last Sunday after
noon, at three o'clock, by the lb v.
T. P. Clark, his pastor, and the Uev.
W. P. Whaley, his Presiding Elder,
and his body was laid to rest beside
that of his mother in the Monticello
The church was filled with many
sorrowing sympathetic friends from
Montioello, Hamburg and other neigh
boring towns. The active pall bearers
were Mr. .1. F. Tiln- and Mf\ Oscar
I'.iuoiy of tliis place, and four of his
business assoc ates from Oermotl.
while the honorary pall bearers were
the members of his Sunday school class
in Hamburg.
He was a good man. What greater
epitaph could be written of any one?
If this could be said of all of us when
we come to the end of our earthly
journey, then we would know that
this life had not been lived in vain,
that this world is a better place, be
cause we have lived here.
The flowers that covered Ids casket
and grave were many and beautiful.

Mr. Wells will be greatly missed in
many places. He proved by his life,
that he believed in the scripture that
“Faith without works Is dead.” Many
hearts are sad because he has passed
away and hosts of friends sympathize
with Mrs. Wells and Carolyn and
other loved ones in their great be
reavement. but their real solace and
consolation must come from the
“Father of Mercies, and the God of
all comfort who comforteth us in all
our sorrow.”—Ashley (Vainly Leader.
