Police Justice - Henry Ver Hulst

Constable - Garret Lemkuil

Mrs. Peter Roelse, who recently moved to Sheboygan to make her home with her sister Mrs. Sinner, died at Sheboygan last week Friday as a result of heart trouble. She was well known to every citizen of Oostburg as she was formerly a resident of this village, occupying the first floor of the residence of J. H. Nyenhuis, and her many friends were greatly shocked to hear of her sudden death.

Last Saturday, Hon. Peter Daane, Sr., celebrated his seventy-fifth birthday anniversary surrounded by relatives and friends. Mr. Daane is one of the oldest residents of Sheboygan county, coming here long before the Civil war. During the Civil war, he served with credit to himself and his country. Not alone does he enjoy a wide circle of friends in our village, but throughout the county and at the present time is president of the Oostburg State bank and justice of the peace.

The family record of this pioneer of Sheboygan county will be interesting. He has nine children, all living, the eldest being 55 years of age and the youngest 33 years; thirty-eight grand children, the eldest Susan Lemkuil, aged 34 years and the youngest, Peter, son of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Daane, aged 2 years. Mr. Daane has 12 great grand children, the oldest being Florence Lemkuil, aged ten years and the youngest, the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rietsema, born on the tenth of this month. The Reporter joins with the many friends of Mr. Daane in wishing him many years of continued good health. His life has been one of activity and he has been identified with many movements which have been for the interests of the county of Sheboygan.

Other Members Deserve Credit

In our mention of the Fest Zeitung publication last week, we are informed by D. Mahlsted that we were in error in giving him full credit in securing the large number of advertisements for the same. Allied with him in his work were Joe Rieck and Gus. Reinke, particularly, who deserve credit with him.

Mr. Mahlsted states that every member of the Harmonie Singing Society is taking an active interest in the arrangements for the Saengerfest to be held here in July, which together with the encouragement being accorded them by our citizens as a unit, gives indications that the Saengerfest to be held will eclipse any similar event in the history of that body.
