Obituary.
 
Mrs. E.M. Horton died at her residence in this city last Saturday of consumption, aged 44 years. The funeral was held on Monday from the family residence the service being conducted by the Rev. J.E. Evans, pastor of the Congregational Church, of which she had been a member. Many relatives and friends from out of town were present and the service was otherwise well attended. There was a great profusion of floral tributes, testifying eloquently to the high esteem in which the deceased was held. Interment was made in the Worthington cemetery.
 
Mrs. Horton's maiden name was Miss Bell Demby. She was born in Grassvalley, Cal., in 1863, and while a child came with her parents to Illinois. She also lived a while in Wisconsin. In 1888 she was married to Mr. E.H. Horton, at Sioux Falls, S.D. They came at once to Worthington, but shortly went back to Sioux Falls, where they lived fifteen years, when they again moved to Worthington, where they have lived ever since.
 
Mrs. Horton was a victim of the dread white plague, consumption, and suffered a great deal, especially during the last two months, but she bore her affliction with Christian fortitude and resignation. She leaves a husband, a son and daughter, besides aged parents and three brothers and seven sisters to mourn her sad demise. The bereaved ones have the deepest sympathy of the community.
 
Death of Mrs. Bigelow.
 
Mrs. Hattie H. Bigelow was a native of Connecticut, having been born in Portland, Middlesex Co., Nov. 20th 1839. Her girlhood was spent in the vicinity of her birthplace and in 1859 she was married to Otis Bigelow. The young couple came west in 1869, finding a home in Iowa. They removed to Worthington in 1872, becoming pioneers of this county and have resided here ever since. Mrs. Bigelow had united with the church as a mere girl, and with her husband became a charter member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Worthington. For thirty-five years she continued to be one of its most active and interested workers. She was always the friend of the pastor and his family and the church and its interests had a large place in her life.

Her death occurred May 18th, 1907, after four weeks of suffering as the result of an injury received from a fall. The funeral service was held Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock at the Methodist Church.
 
Rev. G.A. Cahoon, the pastor of the church, spoke briefly from the text 1 John, 2; 17-25, his subject being "The Immortal Hope."
 
He spoke also of the life history of the deceased and paid a tender tribute to her memory. Rev. W.J. Robinson, of Pine Island, a former pastor and particular friend of the family, spoke of his acquaintance with the deceased and her splendid worth, and gave added words of consolation to the sorrowing relatives.
 
A mixed quartet furnished several beautiful selections.
 
The ladies of the church had the large auditorium decorated with flowering plants, the altar being banked with them. Each society of the church presented a floral tribute, as did the Eastern Star and others. The members of the Eastern Star attended the service in a body. There was a large attendance of relatives and friends. All the business houses were closed during the hours of the service.
 
Mrs. Bigelow was a most estimable woman. She took delight in helping others and her true Christian life has been a blessing and inspiration to many. She is spoken of in the highest terms by all who were privileged to know her.
 
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the stricken husband and relatives.

Mrs. L.S. Rowland and her daughter, Grace, are this week calling on their old friends and neighbors here in Ransom. Mr. and Mrs. Rowland were among the early settlers in Ransom, and they lived here for a good many years. Mrs. Rowland and her daughter now make their home in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where the daughter has a position in a printing office. The other day they made us a short visit, and on the same day two other old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Bennett of Sibley called on us. It is always a real pleasure to meet our old friends.
 
One day last week we received a short call from an old friend who is still a young man -- Elmer Green, second son of J.F. Green, one of the first settlers in Little Rock township. In the pioneer days the writer taught school in the district in which Mr. Green lived, and our young friend, then a boy, of twelve or thirteen, attended school. Since that time he has gained a college education and is now a minister, and is engaged largely in visiting the different churches and Sunday Schools of his denomination. Another brother, Albert, the oldest, has a good position in a railroad office in the state of Washington, where he has been employed continuously for a dozen years or more. And the remaining brother is in the government service at Washington, D.C., with a salary of $1,800 a year. The brothers have all done well, and are good samples of the truth of the old saying that "life is what we make it."  Robert Shore.

Married.
 
Miss Mary Moberly and Mr. Thomas Moore of Chickasha, Indian Territory, were married on Tuesday afternoon, May 28th, at the residence of the bride's brother, R.B. Moberly, Rev. I.H. Darnell pronouncing the mystic words that made the twain one. Owing to the serious illness of the bride's mother Mrs. R.W. Moberly, the wedding was a very quiet affair, only members of the immediate families being present. The young people took the afternoon train for their home in the Southland, and at the depot they were given an enthusiastic sendoff by the many friends of the bride. They boarded the train amidst a shower of rice, old shoes and good wishes.
 
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.W. Moberly, pioneers of Worthington, but for some years residents of Indian Territory, and is a most charming and accomplished young lady who has a large circle of warm friends. The groom is a sturdy young man of Chickasha, where he holds a position in the postoffice.
 
The Advance joins the many friends of the young people in extending congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness. The wedding, which was otherwise a most auspicious event, was shorn of all the usual festivities on account of the feeble condition of Mrs. Moberly, who has been an invalid for more than a year. The climate of Indian Territory did not agree with her and last summer she returned to Worthington in the hope of regaining her health, but her recovery has not been as rapid as anticipated. Mr. Moberly also came up a couple of weeks ago to attend the wedding.
