James Mackey will leave Saturday for Chicago, where he will
enter the Carey Jones school of auctioneering for a three weeks' course. This is
the foremost school of its kind in the country, and while it is a question in
the minds of those who have seen Jim conduct a sale, whether or not he needs any
tuition in that line, still the "best is none too good," so he selected the
Jones school. Jim, however, thinks the school will improve his already
extraordinary ability in his line and when he finished the course there will be
no better auctioneer in this section of the state.
Death of Dow Mitchell
the sad news was heralded about town Monday morning that Dow
Mitchell had passed away during the night. Although not unexpected, still the
intelligence cast a gloom over the entire community, where Dow's friends were
limited only to his acquaintances. To know him was to like him. Death came early
Monday morning, following an attack of blood poisoning, from which he had been a
sufferer for several weeks.
The injury which ultimately resulted in death was received last
spring. While making some repairs on a fence at his farm residence in Lorain
township, he accidentally drove a nail into his knee. Little attention was paid
to the injury and it apparently healed up and was to all appearances as well as
ever, but the bone was injured and about chautauqua week it began to pain him.
Thinking it merely a soreness resulting from the old injury, and failing to
realize the seriousness of it, he worked all week at the chautauqua grounds. The
next week, however, the inflammation had become so intense that he was compelled
to seek medical attention, and took to his bed, from which he never arose. In
spite of all that surgical skill could accomplish, he continued to decline until
it was deemed advisable to amputate the limb. This Mr. Mitchell refused to
consent to until last Sunday, when Dr. Weidow, assisted by Dr. F.S. Hough, of
Sibley, removed the injured member. It was necessary to amputate the bone twice,
as it was found upon examination that the bone was diseased higher up than at
first supposed, so the extremity was moved about three inches further up to a
point a little more than half way between the knee and the hip. The patient came
out from under the anaesthetic in good shape and had apparently a chance to
recover, but the magnificent physique had been too strongly undermined by the
poison and about four o'clock he went into a sinking spell from which he never
rallied, death being due directly to heart failure.
Dow Mitchell was born in Winnebago county, Ill., February 2,
1861, consequently he was aged 47 years, 5 months and one day, at the time of
his untimely death. Deceased was for a number of years engaged in the meat
business in Worthington, where he made friends with all with whom he came in
contact. He was married and the father of a bright little daughter, who
with his widow and adopted son are left to mourn his loss.
Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Tuesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock, attended by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and
The remains were sent to his former home at Peccatonica, Ill.,
for interment, leaving here Tuesday afternoon.
There will be a lawn social held at the home of G.M. Walker on
Thursday evening, August 13th. Everybody is invited to attend and enjoy
themselves. It will be under the auspices of the Christian Endeavor.

PIONEER PASSES AWAY
E.L. Wemple Prominent Citizen of Rushmore Died Monday.
On Monday, August 24th, at 11 o'clock Hon. Evert Lansing Wemple
passed away at his home in Rushmore, after a year of ill health caused by
paralysis. Up to about three years ago Mr. Wemple was a rugged man and in
excellent health, but since that time he has gradually declined in body, though
his mind was as clear and active as ever. About six months ago his voice failed
him, due to paralysis and this made it very hard for him and his family, as he
was naturally energetic and loved to discourse with his neighbors and friends.
Few men of his age retained the power to remember both ancient and modern
history as did Mr. Wemple. Always a great reader and thinker, he was able to
discourse on all subjects with ease and always commanding attention.
Mr. Wemple was born of revolutionary parents in New York state
May 31, 1835, and has ever carried the patriotic spirit with him, both in his
public and private life. Others may have forgotten the national holidays, but
Mr. Wemple never. He remembered them with a patriotic feeling and often did his
national flag from civil war times remind others of the occasion as it floated
from the flag staff on his lawn.
On January 17, 1858, deceased was married to Elizabeth Sieber,
who has ever been his helpmeet and a kind and loving wife. On January 17th last
they celebrated their golden wedding at Rushmore with all the members of the
In 1878 Mr. Wemple came to Rushmore with the New York colony,
when the town was scarcely a spot on the map and that place has been his
residence until the day of his death. With Mr. Al. Seney he helped to lay out
the town site and has had more or less to do with the town ever since, having
charge of the original townsite to the time of his death. No public matter came
up in the town, township or county that Mr. Wemple was not interested in. He was
ever ready to lend his services to old and young for the upbuilding of good
principles and high motives; always had a good word for everybody, yet was ever
ready to denounce wrong doing and conditions unfavorable to town or state.
Mr. Wemple was active in public life as well as private. Evera
staunch republican he made his stand and both the voter and the office seeker
knew where he stood on all questions. In early times he served as one of the
first judges of probate of Nobles county, was justice of the peace for several
years and served on the township board of Dewald. For twenty years he was an
active member on the school board, being treasurer the entire time. For six
years he served as post master, but was forced to resign on account of ill
Mr. Wemple is survived by his wife and five children, all of
whom have been with him during his last sickness. His children are: Edwin S., of
Rushmore; Sheldon, of Minneapolis; James, of St. Paul; Mrs. A. Schafer, of St.
Paul, and Mrs. W.H. Booth, of Sioux Falls.
The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon from the M.E. church,
where deceased had been a contant [constant?]
attendant for thirty years, and the remains taken to Sioux Falls and laid to
rest with other relatives in the family lot.
Rushmore has lost one of her oldest and most highly respected
citizens, a good neighbor and one who was always ready to lend a helping hand.
He will be missed by old and young for it is hard to forget a face such as that
of Mr. Wemple after thirty full years of continual association on the corner,
where he has lived and where he passed away.
