Hugo Lichte lost most of his winter
feed Saturday evening. A fire started
in his north stacks and the wind being
strong and from that direction he
could save none of it. It also des
troyed several loads of wood which he
had used for a corral. About 50 tons
were consumed. The origiu of the fire
is a mystery, as he had not been to the

Mrs, Amy Earnest died at her home
in this village on last Friday evening
it half past seven o'clock. Burial took
place the following day, Rev. Burleigh,
the Methodist minister, conducting a
funeral service at her home. Mrs.
Earnest was born in or near Palmyra,
Ohio, August 31, 1837, and grew up
there. Early in life she married Ho
ratio Nelson Earnest. Her oldest
child, a daughter, was born at Palmy
ra. Mr. and Mrs. Earnest later moved
to Berrien county, Michigan, where
they resided until moving here when
the county was first being settled. Mr.
Earnest homesteaded land near Non
pareil and later came to Hemingford
and went into business. He died here
several years ago and both are buried
in Hemingford cemetery, Besides the
daughter already mentioned there were
two sons, Clyde and Wilber. The
former was here for several days prior
to the funeral, attending his mother
and doing all in his power to make her
last hours as painless as possible.
Her affliction was cancer and she had
been troubled with the disease for
years, at one time going to the hos
pital at Omaha where an operation
was performed, which, however, could
not cure her. but prolonged her life
several years. Since the death of Mr.
Earnest she gained her livelihood by
nursing. But it was only partly for
the remuneration that she did this it
was because her heart was kind and
sympathetic and because she loved to
be of use in the world. Her patients
Joved her for her cheerfulness, useful
ness and genuine interest in their wel
fare and it is pleasant to note that
many whom she nursed during sickness
came and ministered to her during the
long, painful days of her last illness.
She came of one of the best families
that Ohio boasts of atid throuhalljjter
life, though environment was often
distasteful and somctimos bitter, she
kept true to herself and to her youth.
A shallower nature could not come so
true through the tribulations of u life
such as hers. She achieved success in
this life because she
did good in the

place Monday night on their return

Charles Posvar and family of Lawn
were down on Monday . The immed
iate cause of Mr. Posvar's coming to
town was an item which he saw in the
Marslaud items last week in The Hek
ald. The item was made to read that
L. Snow had a contract for shipping
several cars of "hogs" to the hills,
which was a compositor's error and
should have read hay. . Mr. Pasvor has
twenty fat hogs to sell and thought he
had struck a chance.
One of the most interesting enter
tainments to take place in our schools
occurred last Friday afternoon. Miss
Addic Harris and her pupils enter
tained the mothers of the district at a
"schoolhouse party." Neat invitations
were issued by the pupils and they
were quite well responded to, notwith
standing the busy time. A fine literary
programme was carried 'out consisting
of songs, recitations and drills, all of
which were well rendered, the songs
being exceptionally good. After the
program, refreshments were served.
Orangeade and cake, popcorn balls and
mixed nuts constituted the bill-of-fare
and were partaken of with much relish.
We can not refrain from compliment
ing the school board on securing go
able an, instructress as Miss Harris.
Every department of her work indicates
thoroughness and demonstrates the
fact that she is amply qualified for her
