[NOTE: if you would like more info about this article, please email me.]
We are very sorry indeed to chronicle the sad fact of Mrs. Harriett Yale's death. She was a resident of Worthington for a number of years and won the love and respect of all who knew her. She was of a kindly and sincere disposition and won many friends here who will deeply sympathize with her little daughter, Bernice, and her bereaved mother, sisters and brothers. The following obituary is taken from a Jefferson, Iowa, paper:
The funeral services over the remains of Harriet (Beard) Yale, occurred last Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, from the residence of Mrs. Samuel Beard. The exercises were conducted by Rev. W.C. Halbert, of the Baptist Church, of which society Mrs. Yale had been a member since early girlhood. Quantities of beautiful flowers covered the casket as it was lowered away from sight under Thursday's calm sunshine, and every feature of the service was most appropriate and honoring to this dead daughter of Jefferson.
Harriet Beard was born in Jefferson, September 14, 1866. One of a large and happy family of children, her girlhood in our schools, in the church, and in society was a period of great happiness. The Beard home was one of the centers ofsocial enjoyment and Harriet had friends by the score. In October, 1894, she was married to Bruce Yale and since that time her life has been spent elsewhere. One child blessed this union, Bernice, now aged nine years, and her grief in the loss of her mother was most pitiful.
A husband, a mother, three brothers and two sisters survive the deceased. Of the latter, Will Beard, of Chicago, Mrs. Jessie Lower, of Scranton, Mrs. Dorothy Johnston and Mr. George Beard, of Butte, Montana were here for the funeral. The brother Frank who is in Los Angeles, Cal., was unable to be present. In company with many old friends The Bee expresses a deep sense of loss in the death of this daughter of our city, and sympathy for the family who are so sorely tried in this hour of bereavement.

The Last Old Soldier.
Say boys, have you heard what the newspapers say:
One hundred and fifty soldiers a day.
Footsore and weary have dropped out at last,
Back on the road where the column has passed?
Every week -- seven days -- keep the number in mind,
Another full regiment lagging behind;
We bid them "good bye" with a tear and a song,
And the column keeps steadily marching along.
Every three weeks, another brigade
Back in the quiet old churchyard is laid;
One look at the spot where they peacefully sleep,
And each to his place in the column must keep.
Sixty days, a division forever at rest,
No pickets thrown out, no foe will molest;
And let it be morning, at noon or at night,
The column moves on and is soon out of sight.
Every six months, a full army corps
Goes into camp on the furthermore shore,
No break in the column, the evening is damp,
But never mind, boys, we'll soon be camp.
Soon there will be but an invalid's corps,
Of an army that numbered two millions or more;
A division, a brigade, then a regiment small,
Too feeble to note when a comrade shall fall.
At last but a company, then a platoon,
A few struggles left, then soon; Oh, how soon,
They will read this small item: the news came today,
The last old soldier has just passed away.
