The funeral of the late Carl Gustave Peterson was held from the Lutheran church Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock and was conducted by Rev. G. Storaasli. Interment was made in Six Mile Grove cemetery.

The deceased was a resident of Lyle since the summer of 1893 and was a conscientious, hard working loyal citizen and friend. For about ten years he worked for Larson brothers, who commended him very highly, as an efficient and painstaking employee. He had a quiet and reserved disposition and those who knew him best were his closest friends.
For the past three years he has been in poor health.

The deceased was born in Drammen, Norway, August 24th, 1863, and came to America in 1882. For a while he lived in St. Paul and a few years later moved to Wisconsin, then to Otranto, Iowa. In 1893 he was united in marriage, by Rev. Muller Eggen, to Bertha Arneson and since that time he made his home in Lyle.

Twenty-six years ago he joined the Lutheran church at Mona and was later transferred to the local church. At one time he served as chief of the Lyle fire department, and he was a member of the Woodman and the Masonic orders, at the time of the death.

He leaves besides his wife, one son, Lester, and two daughters, Mable and Nettie also one brother, Ingvold Havskjold, of Kemlin, Mont., and a sister, Mrs. A. Drohn, of Janesville, Wis. A host of friends also mourn his departure.
