Dan Chute, of Worthington, called on us Wednesday and was one of our contributors. While here Mr. chute informed us that he was about thru his seeding and that he would reside on his farm one and a half miles east of Wilmont this summer, which we presume is so that he will be near at hand to superintend the work on the large building he is going to erect this summer. Mr. Chute did not say anything to us about his building, the reason for which we think is his desire to bring a great surprise on the people of Wilmont in the near future, but we learned that Mr. Chute will put up a large three story brick building opposite C.W. Mead's barber shop this season. The first and second floor will be known as the Metropolitan Hotel, and the third floor will be the Grand Opera. Mr. Chute certainly has a great eye to business and has elected the most opportune time fore such an enterprise, for all indication point to the most prosperous time in the history of this section of the country. We hope Mr. Chute will not feel that we have been premature in announcing his intentions but it seems so good that we cannot refrain from letting the people know what they may expect. --Wilmont Initiator.

JOHN B. SHARP DEAD
Died of Apoplexy at His Home Thursday, April 6, 1905.

On Wednesday April 6th 1905 at his home near Worthington Nobles Co., Minn. occurred the death of John B. Sharp of apoplexy. Mr. Sharp was born in Edinburg, Scotland Feb. 14th 1824. When quite small he came with his parents to America locating in Orleans County Vermont where the rest of his boyhood days were spent. When he attained his majority he came to Iowa living for a short time near Maquoketa, but later moving westward to Tama county where he purchased land about 1857, on which himself and family lived until Feb. 27th 1900 when they again moved to Nobles County Minn., where he resided until his death. Mr. Sharp was a just and upright man, quiet and unassuming in manner, thinking no evil of anyone, and of him none thought evil. It can be truthfully said that in his long life of eighty-one years he made no enemies, and it is of very few that this much can be said.

Mr. Sharp was married in 1860 to Miss Ann U. Worden, who survives him. Eight children were born to them; Mrs. Lillie Gregg, of Hawarden, Ia.; Mrs. Alda Miller, of Winans S.D.; Ira Sharp, of Worthington; Mrs. Gretta Goodrich, of Worthington; Mark Sharp, of Sunnyside, Wash.; and Gerald Sharp, of Worthington. Two children, Winnifred and Mabel, died when small. Sincerely mourned by all who knew him, "He died in the fullness of years" and "His children shall rise up and call him blessed."
