At her home, two miles north of Lyle, on Wednesday, Oct. 9, Mrs. Mary Nelson, wife of Rasmus Nelson, aged 75 years.

Mrs. Nelson had been sick for several weeks with typhoid fever and had been slowly improving until it was thought she was out of danger, but she caught a severe cold which terminated in her untimely death. She leaves a sorrowing husband and twelve children to mourn her departure. The remains were interred in the new cemetery south of Mona last Saturday, and the funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. M. Eggen.
