Married at Spencer, Iowa.
The following clipping taken from the Clay County News,
published at Spencer, Iowa, will be of interest to the readers of the
Advance-Herald, as Mr. Jones and family were formerly residents of Nobles
county, having resided in Dewald township some years ago, and a son, C.S. Jones,
is now principal of the schools at Dundee.
"The home of Mr. and Mrs. H.S. Jones was the scene of a happy
wedding yesterday morning. The bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.S.
Jones, and the groom is Frank W. Bowman of Winchester, Indiana. Rev. O.M. Bond
was the officiating clergyman. Only relatives and immediate friends had the
pleasure of witnessing the interesting ceremony. The bride is well known in and
about Spencer for her personal charms and social and intellectual qualities --
qualities which fit her for making an ideal home, the most to be desired of
anything this side of heaven. The groom is a stranger to most Spencer people. He
is a commercial salesman, possessed of fine business qualities and prudence, and
by his energy and industry has acquired a sufficiency of this world's goods that
the howl of the wolf at his door has no terrors for him. Mr. and Mrs. Bowman
left on the two o'clock train yesterday for Jefferson, Iowa, where Mr. B. has
business interests. Blessings on them!"

An Interpreter Necessary.
Richard Engstrom, a well-known character about the village, was
arrested Tuesday night by Officer Duel and locked up. The specific charge
against Engstrom was intoxication, a habit he is addicted to, and after a night
in the lockup he was brought before Justice Dow to answer to the charge, but
when the case was called and the warrant read to Engstrom he could not be made
to understand the nature of the proceedings, so an interpreter was sworn in in
the person of S. Kinlund, and through his efforts the defendant was made to
realize that he was charged with drunkenness, which constitutes a breach of
village etiquette, to which charge he pleaded guilty and was fined $5 and costs,
amounting to a trible over $8, which he paid and was released from custody.

Rev. Fletcher and Wife Celebrate Their Tenth Wedding Anniversary
Saturday, October 10, marked the tenth milestone in the
matrimonial journey of Rev. William Fletcher and wife, and in accordance with a
time honored custom the minister and his wife arranged to celebrate the event.
Accordingly invitation was extended to a number of their friends to be present
and assist in making the tin wedding anniversary an event to be remembered. The
reception was held in three relays, from 8 o'clock to 10:30. During that time
about a hundred called and paid their respects to the esteemed pastor and his
estimable wife. A delicious luncheon was served and the reverend gentleman and
his helpmate were the recipients of many beautiful and expensive presents. While
the anniversary was the tenth and known as the "tin" wedding, all presents were
of more substantial material than tin. All who attended enjoyed a pleasant time
and it is the prayer of all that the worthy pastor and wife may be spared to
celebrate many more anniversaries of their wedding day.
GIDDY COUPLE WED
Round Lake Couple Wed, but Want the Event Kept Quiet
That Cupid is no respecter of persons or ages was aptly
demonstrated Monday when the marriage of Charles Marr and Sophie Baumeister was
consummated. The groom gives his age as 68 and the bride has reached the tender
age of 52. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Fletcher at his residence on
Monday afternoon in the presence of the minister's family. There is an air of
romance connected with the marriage, and the contracting parties do not wish
their friends at Round Lake to know of it, so for goodness sake don't mention
it. When the reporter called at the county clerk's office to secure the names of
those to whom marriage licenses had been issued he was repulsed and consequently
could get no information regarding the event, but with true newspaper instinct
got buy along other lines and above is the result of his investigation. There
were several amusing incidents in connection with the marriage which we forego,
owing to the fact that the happy couple do not want the marriage known for a
time, and to mention the humorous side of affairs might result in too much
publicity. Now, whatever you do, do not mention that Mr. Marr and his bride were
married here Monday, as they want to surprise their Round Lake friends and

DEATH OF MRS. BUCHAN
Former Resident of Worthington Passes Away at Custer, Wash.
Mrs. Delia a. Buchan, mother of E.F. Buchan, of this city, and
W.H. Buchan, of Bellingham, Wash., died at Custer, Wash., on October 12, death
being due to a complication of troubles.
Delia A. Blandin was born at Tornby, N.Y., April 25, 1836. When
about ten years of age she removed with her parents to Racine county, Wis.,
where she grew to womanhood. May 6, 1857, she was united in marriage to Andrew
Buchan at Yorkville, Racine county, Wis., and in the spring of 1861 she and her
husband removed to Sheldon, Houston county, Minn., where both united with the
Presbyterian church. In the spring of 1862 her husband enlisted in the army,
going first into the Indian war and afterwards south to Vicksburg, the wife
returning to Wisconsin with the two sons which had in the meantime been born to
the union. At the close of the war they returned to Sheldon and in the year 1872
came to Worthington, where they resided until 1888, when they removed to
California, and in 1890 went to Custer, Wash., where they have since resided.
Their third son, Alfred, died while they were on their way to visit Worthington
in 1891, his death occurring at Ogden, Utah. At that time Mr. and Mrs. Buchan
spent a year with Worthington relatives, returning again for another visit in
1904, at which time they spent seven months with their sons, Edward F. and Wm.
Mrs. Buchan was an earnest Christian worker, a devoted wife and
loving mother, always sacrificing for others to the full limit of her strength.
For over thirty years she has been a sufferer and the strain told upon her
physically, and on October 12 she passed to her reward, aged 73 years, 5 months
and 17 days. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, two sons and a multitude
of sorrowing friends.
The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from the Presbyterian
church, Rev. Wilder conducting the services, and the remains were followed to
the last earthly resting place by a large concourse of friends. The funeral was
announced for Monday afternoon, but owing to some unforeseen intervention the
funeral party were unable to reach Worthington on Monday as was expected. The
remains were accompanied on their long journey by her aged husband and son,
William. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the surviving
relatives in their great bereavement.
Taken Ill at Hotel.
William Mosser, a traveling salesman from Indianapolis, Ind.,
was taken to the Worthington hospital Monday morning suffering from an attack of
liver trouble. Mr. Mosser, who is a very large man, arrived in the city Sunday
and registered at the Worthington, and was apparently in good health. On Monday
morning he was stricken suddenly, and although the employes of the hotel could
hear his calls for aid it was some minutes before they could locate where they
came from, and Mr. Mosser was finally discovered sitting on the steps leading to
the toilet room in the basement. It was evident that he was in great distress
and a physician was called, and upon the patient expressing a desire to enter a
hospital a conveyance was called and he was removed to that institution, and is
now out of danger.

AN ESTIMABLE CITIZEN
Life of Charles J. Smallwood One Well Worth Copying.
As noted in these columns last week, Charles J. Smallwood was
suddenly stricken with death on Thursday afternoon last, the details of which
were given at that time. In his death the village of Worthington loses one of
its most worthy and influential citizens, a loss which we can ill afford to
sustain, but "God works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform."
The funeral services were held from his late residence on Sunday
afternoon, conducted by Rev. Wm. Fletcher and were largely attended, but
interment was not made until Monday afternoon, when a private funeral was held
attended only by immediate relatives, with short prayer service at the cemetery.
Mr. Smallwood was one man of whom no one spoke aught but good.
He had no enemies. To know him was to like him, and his death cast a gloom over
Worthington greater than any death that has occurred in the village for many
months. Out of respect to the deceased the public schools were dismissed on
Friday afternoon and again on Monday afternoon, the telephone office, of which
the deceased was the proprietor was closed during the services Sunday afternoon,
and again Monday afternoon, and on Monday all the business houses in the village
were closed from 3 o'clock to 4:30 p.m., as a mark of the esteem. It was a
fitting tribute to a worthy man.
Charles J. Smallwood was born in McHenry county, Ill., September
25, 1865, and died Thursday, October 22, 1908, consequently was but a few days
over 43 years of age, his father Thomas B. Smallwood, being born in Yorkshire,
England, but removed to this country when a young man, and settled in McHenry
county, Ill., where the subject of this sketch was born.
At an early age he removed with his parents to Milwaukee where
he received his education in the public schools and an academy. After he had
finished school, Mr. Smallwood learned telegraphy and was first employed as
operator for the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railway and was promoted to the
position of train dispatcher. In 1881 he accepted a position as train dispatcher
on the C., St. P. M. & O. railroad, with headquarters at St. Paul, but after
about a year of service at that point he was promoted to the position of chief
train dispatcher for the Omaha with Omaha as headquarters, where he staid until
1893, when he removed with his family to Worthington where he has since resided.
He was engaged for a number of years in the grocery and lumber
business and put in the first telephone system at Worthington, starting with
about 45 subscribers, but by energy and efficient service he built up the
system, until at the present time there are a trible over 400 subscribers with a
number of rural routes operated in connection.
He was married at Rochester, Minn., August 11, 1881 to Miss
Florence Moulton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Moulton, of this city. To this
union were born three children, Justin T., at present a practicing physician in
Minneapolis, Mary E., wife of attorney J.A. Cashel and Charles Moulton.
Mr. Smallwood had been honored by his fellow citizens by
election to various village offices, all of which he filled with credit to the
village and honor to himself. In 1895 he was president of the village council
and for the past eight years has been a member of the board of education,
serving as treasurer of that body. He was also secretary of the Chautauqua
association and a member of the Carnegie library board.
He leaves to mourn his untimely death, a wife, three children,
as above mentioned, a brother, Clifford Smallwood of Rockfield, Wis., and a
sister, Mrs. A. Pagels of Milwaukee, besides a multitude of his fellow townsmen.
He will be greatly missed by all who were accustomed to meeting and dealing with
him either in a social or business way, and the sympathy of the entire community
goes out tot eh sorrowing wife and family in their great bereavement.
Submits to Operation.
W.H. Buchan on Friday submitted to an operation for the removal
of a small tumor from his right foot, from which he has suffered for some time.
The operation was a success in every way and he is now at Dr. Weidow & Mork's
hospital where he will remain until his wound is entirely healed.
The following letters remain uncalled for in the postoffice at
