Was a Graduate of the Worthington High School

Died, Sunday afternoon, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Cale, Miss Edith Cale, aged 26 years and 9 months.

Miss Cale was born in Nobles county. The greater part of her life has been passed in this vicinity. She was a graduate of the 1901 class of the Worthington High School. After her graduation she spent several years in teaching and then went to Macalester College to complete her education. She finished her college course in 1908 and received the degree of Bachelor of Arts.

She had chosen teaching as her profession and took up that work immediately after graduating and continued it until failing health forced her to desist from active labor.

The past year has been one of severe suffering. Those who mourn her departure cannot but rejoice in her release from pain. She has departed but the memory of a life singularly brave, sweet and hopeful will continue to be an uplifting influence to those who knew her.

A beautiful floral offering was sent as a memorial by her college class mates. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. David McMartin, of Round Lake, Minnesota. Mr. McMartin was a college friend of the deceased. Interment was made in the cemetery at Excelsior, Minn., G.W. Cale, Miss Flora Cale, Max Cale, and Rev. McMartin going to that place to be present at the burial.

Miss Cale leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Cale, her sisters, Misses Artemis and Flora, her brother, Max, besides other relatives and numerous friends mourn her loss. The sympathy of all is theirs in this trial.

It is fitting that this brief notice should close with a favorite quotation of Miss Cale's. One she wished to have used at her funeral. "For when from out this home of time and place, The flood shall bear me far I hope to meet my pilot face to face, When I have crossed the bar."

DR. RAY HUMISTON DEAD
Comparatively Young Man Dies at Height of Ambitious Success

Dr. Ray Humiston died at his hospital early Wednesday morning, May 10th, after several days of intense suffering and a hard fight against pneumonia, a fight rendered hopeless by heart failure.

Dr. Humiston was the son of Mr. and Mrs. E.R. Humiston, of this city. He was born in Cleveland, Minn., March 29th 1868, hence was 43 years old. In 1872 he came with his parents to Worthington where he has ever since lived. He graduated in pharmacy a short time before he was twenty-one years old, and for about ten years engaged in that business in this city. Nearly all of this time he was a member of the State Board of Pharmacy. He finally entered the medical department of the State University and graduated with honors eight years ago and took up the practice of his profession in his home town, where he has displayed marked ability and met with phenominal success and endeared himself to a large number of families in and about Worthington.

Eighteen years ago the 13th of last June the deceased was united in marriage with Miss Kittie L. Moulton, of Mankato, Minn. Two children, Burr and Katheryn, were born to them and will be the comfort of the bereaved and otherwise lonely wife and mother. Besides these and the aged parents, the following brothers and sisters are left to mourn his departure: Fred, Will and John, all of Worthington, and Mrs. A.E. Jones, of Minneapolis. One brother, Harry, died nearly seven years ago.

Dr. Humiston was one of the leading members of the Congregational church and was always active in religious and every other cause which makes for the betterment of humanity and the glorifying of God. The whole city recognized that he was a good man, an able physician and an upright citizen and they sympathize and mourn with the stricken family.

He will be buried from his late residence where a quiet funeral is being conducted by Dr. L.L. Sowles as we go to press. Interrment will be made in the Worthington cemetery.
