April 23, 1889
April showers have done lots of good.
Farmers are pretty well along with work and we hear that some are intending
to plant corn this week.
Fencing is becoming popular among society girls. The Marion lasses are
still kicking on the wire variety and are not likely to get over it.
Arizona boasts of a woman who can drive a nail with a bullet at forty yards.
If Marion could produce a woman able to drive a nail with a hammer at a
distance of one foot without pounding her fingers, we would have a curiosity
worth boasting about.
There was a meeting last Sunday morning at the Ruth school house. A large
attendance and interesting services resulted.
John Smith had another sick spell last Saturday night and had to be taken to
the doctor. He is better now.
Most people would think that tin ware was cheap to hear the way the boys

as hens teeth, but a little nonsense now and then, and the more important
facts as they occur. ~FARMER’S BOY.
HOYT—At her home in Marion township, on Saturday morning, April 20, 1889, of
congestion of the brain; Mrs. Belle Hoyt, age 37 years. She was a daughter
of J. W. Clark and came to this county from Wisconsin with her father’s
family 11 years ago and was married ten years ago to G. W. Hoyt. She leaves
a husband and four children, and a large circle of friends to mourn her
The funeral services were conducted yesterday by Rev. J. E. Snowden.
WERNLI—On Saturday evening, April 20, 1889, of diabetes, Adolph Henry
Wernli, aged 29 years, 7 months and 25 days.
The deceased had been a great sufferer for years, but was always patient,
scarcely ever complaining and attended to office work up to a short time
previous to his death. He was careful and patient, taking in his business
transactions and had become well established in the Iowa insurance and
steamship passenger agencies.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the family residence of Prof.
J. Wernli at two o’clock and later at the German Methodist church. A large
attendance of friends were present and the clergymen of several churches
joined in conducting the services.
The deceased was a man of great natural ability and had his life not been
blighted at an early age by sickness, he would have taken a prominent place
in the world.
