Marriage of Mr. John A. Cashel and Miss May E. Smallwood Solemnized Thursday Evening

A marriage of more than ordinary interest to Worthington society was solemnized on Thursday evening, Jan. 23rd, at the handsome residence of Mr. and Mrs. C.J. Smallwood, when their daughter Mary E. was joined in bonds of holy wedlock to Mr. John A. Cashel, one of the promising young attorneys of Nobles county. The wedding was a quiet affair, only a few intimate friends being present. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Father John Sherman, according to the impressive ceremony of the Roman Catholic Church.

The bride was attended by Miss Ada Montgomery and Miss Marjorie Shell, and the groom by Mr. Jesse Smallwood. The ceremony was followed by a very dainty wedding supper. Mr. and Mrs. Cashel took the 2 o'clock train for Winona, where they will spend their honeymoon visiting his parents.

The bride is one of the best known and most popular young ladies of Worthington having grown to womanhood in this community. She is admired by all who know her for her many womanly qualities.

Mr. Cashel is one of the most popular young men in the county and an attorney of great promise. He has been a resident of Worthington for about three years, and during that time has gained the highest esteem of all who know him and that is nearly everyone in town.

When Mr. and Mrs. Cashel return from their honey moon they will make their home in Worthington.

Friday, January 31, 1908


Mrs. Julia H. McCune died at her home in Worthington, Minnesota, January 23, 1908 at 4:00 o'clock a.m.

Julia Millicent Hall, daughter of Hudson B. and Aratheusa Hall, was born at Tecumseh, Michigan, July 27, 1839. The family moved to Toledo, Ohio, where Julia was educated in the Public Schools, and where, as a young woman, she was identified with the Westminster Presbyterian church, taking an active part in Sunday School and Mission work. From this city she went with her parents to Dundee, Michigan, and while making that village her home, taught school in Sylvania, Hillsdale and Tecumseh, Michigan.

February 28, 1883 she married the Rev. Robert McCune at her home at Dundee. Mr. McCune was then pastor of the Congregational church at Kokomo, Indiana, where, during the four years following her marriage, Mrs. McCune also rendered efficient service as member of the church.

In 1889 Mrs. McCune with her husband and family came to Worthington where she has since resided with the exception of six months spent in Sherburn, Minnesota, to which city Mr. McCune accepted a call after a long pastorate in the Union Congregational church of this place. His labors in the new field were soon ended by his death, whereupon the people of Sherburn, who esteemed Mrs. McCune highly, asked her to continue her residence in their midst, insisting that she remain in their parsonage with the daughters, Hattie and Carrie, until spring. This they did, but in May 1898 they returned to their old friends in Worthington where the father and other members of their family are buried.

Mrs. McCune has been actively engaged in church and other benevolent work in this city for nineteen years, at different periods as President and Secretary of the Congregational aid society, and for the past seven years she has been Secretary of the Woman's missionary society. Upon her removal to Sherburn this society made her a life member of the Woman's Board of Foreign Missions.

In our village no eulogy is needed for Mrs. McCune, we all knew the beauty and strength of her character.

Small, modest and frail in appearance, the brave spirit never found wanting, was expressed in the work of her capable hands, and by her wise, cheerful counsel. When sickness or sorrow visited her friends, which means the whole community, she was ever the friend in need, the one who knew "just what to do."

Rest from her labor of love is well deserved and peace after long, brave endurance of her final illness. It may be truly said, "she has done what she could," it also can truly be said, "that we shall miss her."


Henry Apel, Sr., of Worthington township, died Wednesday morning, January 29, from gall stones.

The deceased was born in Germany, January 11th, 1835, and emigrated with his parents to America in the year of 1855. They settled in Peru, Illinois. He was united in marriage to Charlotta Graling in 1862, who died Nov. 23, 1881 and to this union six children were born, Margret who is at home, Mrs. H. Hughes, of Pontiac, Ill., Herny [Henry?], John and Mrs. W.F. Kasdorf, who live near Worthington, one died in infancy.

In Dec. 1882 he was married to Gertrude Friesboen. To this union one child was born, Sena, who is at home.

Beside these there are two brothers and two sisters and six grandchildren to mourn his death.

He united with the German Evangelical church in his youth and was a faithful member until his death.

The funeral was held this afternoon from the German church.

Mail Carrier in Wreck

J.P. Rippberger, carrier on Route 2, had an exciting runaway accident on Tuesday in which he was badly bruised and disfigured, but fortunately not seriously hurt. His broncho mare broke the bit at W. Wickstrom's mail box and ran from there to N.M. Nelson's place, where she stopped in the grove. The rig and harness was damaged more or less, but no serious damage was done. His substitute is carrying the mail for a few days.


Mr. D.P. Moore, of Sioux Falls, arrived in the city Monday morning to accept a position with A.P. Rose, and is engaged in gathering data for the Nobles county history.
