Abram Alonzo Burton was born in Columbia county, New York, January 19,
1826. He was married to Mrs. Mary Streever March 27, 1866. With her he came
west in Nov. 1867 settling on a farm in Winona county, Minnesota. From there
he removed to Nobles county in 1890, locating on a farm six miles east of
Worthington. After the death of his wife about eight years ago he made his
home with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Haggard, with whom
he changed his residence to Worthington about two months ago.
Mr. Burton had been somewhat indisposed all winter but no alarming
symptoms developed until last Monday. He passed to his eternal rest Friday
morning, painlessly and peacefully, closing his eyes in the sleep that know no
waking to sorrow and trouble and pain. He joined the Methodist Episcopal
church in his youth and in its faith he lived, and in the faith of Christ he
closed his eyes on the scenes of earth. A pioneer who had endured the
hardships of frontier life in this state, he has gone to that better country
for the rewards of his long industrious life. Besides other relatives three
children remain to mourn the departure of a father beloved. Wm. A. Burton,
Pillager, Minn., John W. Burton and Mrs. S.J. Haggard, Worthington. A host

"WHISKEY" DITCH TO BE RE-OPENED
Mr. Sykes Arranges With Committee to Use Old Ditch for Water Supply
DITCH COMMITTEE APPOINTED
Who Will Look After the Lake Level and Conditions of the Ditch
In a recent issue of the Globe appeared an article relative to the
construction of a new ditch to take the place of "whiskey" ditch west of
Ager's and a committee was appointed to investigate the matter.
Arrangements have been made by the committee which was composed of Daniel
Shell, H.S. Hobson and J.A. Cashel, whereby the old ditch will be re-opened
and thus save considerable annoyance and expense.
This committee and Mr. Sykes agreed to a committee consisting of Daniel

and who will see that the lake does not overflow its banks as it formerly
did during the wet seasons and damage Mr. Sykes' property, and they will
also take steps to preserve the good condition of the lake's inlet.
A meeting was held at the City Hall Wednesday night to explain the
situation to those interested but the weather prohibited a large meeting so

MRS C.B. MACKEY DIES
Was a Victim of Kerosene Explosion Recently
Mrs. C.B. Mackey, of Amor, passed away at her home near that place on
Tuesday evening, after nearly four weeks of intense suffering.
Four weeks ago today Mrs. Mackey was at the home of her father, Hans
Jorgenson, when her brother poured kerosene over a fire out of a three
gallon can. The flames reached to the can, the kerosene exploded, burning
both of them. The young man was not badly burned and soon recovered, but
Mrs. Mackey was considered in a serious condition from the first, and it
would seem that her life was prolonged through these weeks of suffering
because she was a woman of grit and would not give up. The best medical aid
was procured and all that loving hands could do was done in an effort to
relieve her of the pain and save her life. During the last week hopes were
entertained for her recovery, but it was not to be, and she passed away
Mrs. C.B. Mackey, formerly Miss Annie Jorgenson, lacked one month of
being twenty-one years of age. She came out here with her parents about
three years ago, and on November 3, 1909, was united in marriage to C.B.
Mackey, a prosperous young farmer near Armor. Of this union one child was
born, which with the bereaved husband survives. At the time of the accident
this child was in the room where the explosion occurred, but received only a
slight burn. There are also left to mourn her demise, her parents, her
brothers, and her sisters, Mrs. Rosenberg and Mrs. Buchholz.
The funeral was held here on Friday at 10 o'clock, services being held at
the home of M.T. Rosenberg Rev. E.S. Eidesvik, pastor of the Lutheran church
officiating. The interment will be at the Bowman cemetery in the afternoon
of that day.

NEWS OF YESTERDAY
Items of Interest Clipped from the Advance Thirty
June 14, 1877
Arrival of Mr. Taylor
We have stated several times recently that Mr. F.C. Taylor was expected
from England with the vanguard of a number of English settlers. He arrived
Thursday night accompanied by two English gentlemen, as stated elsewhere. Mr.
Taylor has spent some months in England endeavoring to turn English capital
and English settlers in this direction. Of course, the grasshopper
affliction is known in England and Mr. T has this to contend with, but most
of those who wish to come propose growing stock, the grasshopper objection
is not difficult to overcome. Mr. Taylor is doing our people great service
by turning English capital and introducing English farmers to this county.
Some of our Graham Lake friends claim that Mr. Horton, of Indian Lake, is
mistaken in claiming that he was the first to put the plow in to Nobles
county soil. The Mucks settled at Graham Lake about the 19th of June, 1867,
and ploughed some that year. B.W. Woolstencroft and Chas. Drury came in on
the Fourth of July of the same year and did some breaking on the 5th. B.F.
Tanner, O.B. Lacey and J. Ingalls also came to Graham Lakes that same year.
Minor Arrival Lyndon, May 20, 1877 Mr. Miller. -- I am going to
write to you and tell you that I have a little baby brother, and I see that
his name has not been put in the paper; but I hope that the next paper we
get will have it in. He was born March 31, 1877, and his name is Willis A.
Maxwell. I want you to be sure and put it in the paper. We expect to come
back there this summer and live there all the time. Our garden is up and
growing nicely. The wind is blowing very hard today. I shall have to close.
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Eastman and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Eastman and family
have moved to Round Lake, where they will make their future home.
Nick Meller, of St. Cloud, arrived here last Thursday and will work for
William Burchard, proprietor of the Worthington Creamery. Mr. Meller is an
experienced ice cream and butter maker.
