We hear it stated on the street that Capt. J H Hubbard, has succeeded, and that Mrs. Capt. Hubbard is happy, and that the male facilities of Princeton are improved about eight pounds. This is said to be a "fatter take" than the Captain ever made in California, that land of wonders. May joy come with the boy. 11 Jan.

Dr. I W DeVoe, of this place, came within one of being as happy as Mr. A See. A boy, weight eleven pounds. 11 Oct.

We learn that Mr. Albert See, who lives upon Grand Prairie, is happy, very happy. In fact, he is said to be the happiest man in that section of the country, and what man would not be happy when his wife presents him with twins? 11 Oct.

Mr. Aldis Stevens died at his residence near this village, on Monday last, after a short illness, at the advanced age of nearly 73 years. Mr. Stevens was an old resident and a man respected by all who knew him. He has at different times held offices of trust in the town, and in all proved himself a true man. Much of his life had been spent on the frontier, his habits were plain and simple, and up to within three or four days of his death, his person was as erect as an Indian's, and his step as elastic as most men's at 40 years of age. At the time of his death, his sons were both absent, one traveling in the west, and one somewhere near Green Bay. 11 Jan.

We learn from Marquette of the death by consumption of Mr. George Mackey. He died at his residence one mile east of the village, on Sunday afternoon, the 12th inst. Mr. Mackey was an old resident of Marquette, and leaves many friends to mourn his departure. The funeral services were to take place at the M E Church in that village, on Tuesday. 18 Jan.

Mulligan: On the evening of February 12th, at her home in St. Marie, Mrs. Catherine Mulligan, wife of John Mulligan, aged 46 years. Mrs. Mulligan had been a great sufferer for the past four years, having been almost lifeless for that time, and death was a welcome release. Her funeral was largely attended, the procession of mourners being nearly a half mile in length. 15 Feb.

A Sad Accident, Another Life to be charged up to the Account of too much drink.
On last Friday evening, as Mr. Ferdinand Ferch was driving home from Princeton with a one horse sleigh, he was run over and killed by a team belonging to a Mr. Louis Tuehol. Ferch had been in the village with wood, as frequently of late, with his one horse, and had been drinking some, though was not considered intoxicated. The report is that Tuehol had been drinking to excess, and could not manage his team. Mr. Gotlieb Klingheil was the first to find the above parties after the accident, and says that when he came up with them, the teams were standing still. Tuehol's team having run, one on either side of Ferch's sleigh, the end of the sleigh tongue apparently having hit Ferch in the back, and thrown him forward with his head in front of the sleigh, and one of the horses was standing with his fore feet inside of the thills of the single horse, and close to Ferch's head, which was turned out in front of one runner, the body lying up in the sleigh. Mr. Ton soon came up with his team, having picked up Tuehol several rods back on the road, too much intoxicated to help himself. Mr. Ferch's body was taken to his home, where a wife and five small children were made very sad by this sudden and great affliction. Mr. Ferch is said to have been a very industrous and kind hearted man. He lived some five miles south of Princeton. We hear that an inquest was held at his late home across the lake from Marquette, but of which we have no particulars. 15 Feb.

The funeral of August Dumdi, whose death is mentioned elsewhere, was held at the Lutheran Church on Thursday and was largely attended. 1 March
Sudden Death: Mr August Dumdi, of St. Marie, son of Andrew Dumdi, a well known and able farmer of the Black Creek neighborhood, died suddenly on Tuesday morning, Feb. 25th. August had been in Princeton the night previous to a German Bal Masque, but as we learn, did not take a part in the dance. He went home three miles, about midnight, and at half past one o'clock called his mother, who, upon going to him, found him in great agony from fits of cramping. This continued for nearly two hours, when death released him from his great sufferings. 1 March

Attempted Suicide: We learn from Marquette that during last week, a Miss Bemus, aged bout 18 years, attempted to heal the ills of life she could not bear, by swallowing a quantity of morphine. The dose taken was too large, and vomiting ensued, which was aided by physicians and friends, and an unhappy life was spared. There is a history connected with this matter, which we will not touch today. Had the letter written and deposited in the post office by this young lady, for the Republic, been allowed by her friends to reach us, we might have felt at liberty to say more. It is a sad case at best, and the unhappy girl should have the sympathy of friends. 15 March

See: At his residence in the town of Green Lake, on the 17th inst, David See, aged 74 years. The above announcement comes to us from Green Lake, bearing with it sadness to very many who have known Mr. See from the early settlement of this County. Some twenty four years ago, Mr See, or, as he was more familiarly known, Col. See, came here from the State of New York, to find a home. In company with his son, Albert A See, he took up his abode on the then new and undeveloped prairie farm in Green Lake which has ever since been his home. Here, together, they have created one of the most pleasant homes of the county, and here, as a family, they were happy and prosperous until about eighteen months since when death called away Mrs. See, wife of David See. Since that time the Col. had been gradually failing until death on Monday last released him from the cares of the world and allowed him to rejoin the friends that had gone before. Mr. See had long been a member of the M E Church, and as such had tried to adorn his profession with a "well ordered life." He was to be buried today (Wed). Having been so many years among us a prominent citizen, Mr See will be missed and mourned by almost the entire people of the county. 22 March

Please insert in your paper notice of the death of Mrs. Nancy, wife of Mr. S V R Greene, formerly a resident of Green Lake, but who a few years since removed to Cannon City, Minn. where they resided at the time of her death, March 23d, 1873, of congestion of the lungs. Mrs. Greene being a kind and affectionate woman, she left many warm friends in Green Lake. She has left a large family of children to mourn the loss of their mother. 19 April

Mooney: In the town of Green Lake, April 13th, Mrs. Elizabeth Mooney, the mother of Calvin and Cephas Mooney. The deceased was born in Concord, NH in the year 1784, and was in her 90th year when she died. About 70 years ago she united with the first Congregational Church in Concord, and continued to live a worthy and exemplary christian life till the last. 19 April
Mrs. Mooney died at the residence of her son "Cal." Mooney, on Green Lake prairie, Sunday, the 13th inst., aged 89 years. 19 April

Mr. David Sample, of the town of Kingston, died suddenly last Wed morning. He had been plowing all day Tues until about 4 o'clock pm when he was taken with a violent pain and cramp in the stomach. A physician was immediately called, but all efforts to relieve his sufferings were unavailing. He died about 9 o'clock next morning. Mr. Sample had made arrangements to build a cheese factory this summer, and had laid his plans well. He was young and enterprising and will be missed by the public at large. Surely, "In the midst of life we are in death." We had hardly heard of Mr. Sample's death when our ears were saluted with the solemn tolling of the etc. . . 19 April

Smeaton: On Tuesday in the town of St. Marie, of consumption, Maud, daughter of Robert and Francis Smeaton, aged one year and four months. 10 May

Clark: In this village on Sat, May 3d, of consumption, Mr. Byron Clark aged 40 years. Mr. Clark had recently come here from Busti, Chatauqua County, NY, in search of that greatest blessing of life, health. He was brother-in-law of S M Eggleston, of this village, and had been resting his weary body only two weeks at the residence of Mr Eggleston when death suddenly put an end to his life dream. We learn that he had been sick about two years but since arriving here he had almost thought he was getting well. Only a few moments before he breathed his last he was sitting on the doorstep apparently quite comfortable. From thence he passed into the house and sat down on the lounge, when it was discovered that he was laboring for breath. He went to his bed and lying down passed away almost without a struggle. Mr. Clark leaves a wife here who had accompanied him to care for his every want, and two little boy 12 and 14 years of age who remained at Busti. He was buried on Sunday afternoon, Rev W M Richard officiating. 10 May

Mrs. David Green, long time a resident of the village of Marquette in this county, died at the residence of her son, D M Green, in Princeton, on Wed. pm, She was 75 years old in Feb last. 17 May

Hamer - In Princeton, Green Lake Co., Wis., Wed morning, May 21st, 1873, Edward Hamer, aged 72 years. The subject of this memoir was born in Clunn, Shropshire, England, Nov 9th, in the year 1801. Was married to Miss Mary Ann Chantry, daughter of Adjutant Chantry, of His Britannic Magesty's Draggoon, in 1827. In 1833 he was induced to sail for this country, to try his fortune. Making for the west he readily found employ in Cleveland, Ohio, as a carpenter and joiner, that proved quite lucrative, and enabled him to send for his family. Here they remained until the year 1850 at which time the west seemed to invite him farther on. Coming to Wisconsin he sought the Fox river valley, pitched his tent among the first settlers in Princeton, where he resided up to the day of his death. His patriotism for his adopted country can never be questioned, giving four sons for the army, and often said he was ready to go himself if he was sure of acceptance. Three sons returned, bringing no news of the fourth, the eldest, who entered the "wilderness fight" came not out. The place in which he fell is not know; his grave, if he had one, cannot be found. Edward Jr. was a "whole burnt offering" on Freedom's Altar. Etc. . . . . . 24 May
"The young may die, the old must die" has again been brought forcibly to mind by the death, in this village at one o'clock on Wed morning, of Mr E Hamer, aged 72 years. 24 May

We learn with much regret, the sudden death of Mrs. A W Pettibone, of Ripon, on last Tuesday morning. 31 May

Boy Drowned: A five year old son of Gottlieb Kruger, living on the Westside of the river, strayed from the house a short distance, to the mill ditch, on last Sat afternoon, and fell into the ditch. Another little child was with him, who took the little hat and went back to the house and told the sad story. Search was made and the body soon recovered, but life was extinct. 31 May.

Ash - In the town of St. Marie on Saturday, May 31st, of inflammation of the bowels and kidneys, Mr Thomas Ash, in the 66th year of his age. Mr. Ash has been a resident of the town of St Marie for twenty years, and was highly esteemed by all who were acquainted with him. 7 June

Harmon - At Vivian, Wauseca county, Minn, Esther Harmon, wife of Wm. H Harmon, aged 44 years. Mr. Harmon and family came to Wisconsin in 1850 and were among the first settlers in the town of Pleasant Valley. Though 16 years have elapsed since Mr. H and family left this state, yet many of our readers will remember them, and sympathize with him in his bereavement. 7 June

Another Old Pensioner Gone: Mr. Hurd, of the town of Brooklyn, in this county, and a soldier of the war of 1812, died at the residence of his son Levi, in Ripon, a few days since aged, as we are informed, 78. Mr. Hurd had, for some time, been living with a son in law, David Wilson, in Brooklyn, and has been able to plow corn this season; in fact, was quite hale and active up week before last when he took his gun saying he would get it fixed up and shoot a little for a holiday. To do this it was necessary to go to Ripon. He was taken sick soon after reaching the city and lived only a few days. His remains was buried in the beautiful cemetery at Dartford. He leaves an aged wife at Mr. Wilson's; his son George is also a resident of the town of Brooklyn. Thus one by one the old pensioners are gathered to their rest. 19 July

John Parrott, Jr., died at Marquette on Wed of last week, and now John won't have to support the baby. 26 July

The following obits read at the funeral services in Dartford, Sunday, Aug 3, 1873, of those lost in the Green Lake disaster July 4th, 1873:
Mrs. Carman, Mrs. Russell and Child: Martha E Thompson was born in Central New York, March 28th, 1836; was married in Valparaiso, Indiana, to Albert P Carman, Oct 15th, 1857.
Lizzie C Russell was born in Lake Co, Indiana, June 29th, 1813; was married in Ste. Marie, Wis., to Marion C Russell, July 10th, 1864.
Mary F Russell, only child of M C and L C Russell, was born in Ste. Marie, March 9th, 1866.
The former two were daughters of the late Rev. Robt. Thompson, the memory of whose devoted Christian life was been a beacon, guiding them to a safe heaven, where storm clouds never gather, and where wild waves can never dash them from the presence of precious loved ones. They leave husbands, a mother, three score years and twelve, a brother and four sisters to follow them into Heaven home. God grant that at the reunion the family circle may be complete.
Mrs. Carman received the baptism of the Holy Spirit before she was ten years old, while attending a camp meeting near her home in Indiana, and has ever since been a devoted member of the M E Church.
Mrs. Russell gave her heart publicly to the Savior when she was about twelve years of age, though she attained a richer experience in 1860 or '61 while attending the Valparaiso, Indiana, M and F College, then under the presidential care of Rev. C N Sims.
Each possessed a marked personality, yet their natures had many traits in common. Retiring and unobtrusive, they were firm and independent in principle, and though physically frail, they were endowed with spiritual and intellectual strength, and talents of a high order. Theirs were untarnished lives. From infancy "they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord, blameless."
Darling Matie went in her purity. Though so young, the careful mother training had left impressions on heart and brain, and "of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
William Bloxam, Wife and Child: William Bloxam was born in England, July 6th, 1844. Emigrated to this country in 1854. Married to Miss Melissa Jane Reed Nov 5th, 1869.
Mrs. Melissa Jane Bloxam, wife of Wm. Bloxam, and daughter of __Reed, was born Sept 22d, 1851, in Bradford County, PA. Came to Dartford when four years old, and continued a resident until her death.
Charles Bloxam, son of William and Melissa Bloxam, born Feb 28th, 1870. Aged three years and four months.
Mrs. Mary Ann Baird: Mrs. Mary Ann Baird, wife of John Baird, was born in Minisink, Orange County, New York, Oct 19th, 1819. She was married Oct 4th, 1852. She was converted in Rome, New York, about the year 1838 or 1839 and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. When she came West with her family she lost her church membership. Etc. . . 16 Aug.

Mr. E H Brown of Markesan, died at his home in that village, on Friday last. The funeral services were on Sun. Mr. Brown has been engaged for several years, dealing in agricultural implements, and was formerly a partner with his brother, A J Brown, in the same business. His brother, A J., died a little less than two years ago. Mr. Brown was ever an active business man, and by industry . 30 Aug.
Again we are called upon to pay our last sad respects to one of our citizens and neighbors, Mr E H Brown. Mr Brown has been doing business in Menominee, Dunn County, this season, his health being poor the most of the time. About two weeks ago he was taken worse, but had been making calculations to return to his old home in the town of Green Lake, when he was taken violently ill of typhoid fever, but succeeded in getting home and only lived eight days. Mr. Brown was a stirring business man and of strict integrity, and will be missed by a large circle of acquaintances. (Markesan) 30 Aug.

Many will learn with sadness, as we do, the death of Mrs. Ruth Sergant, at her daughter's Mrs. Luman Sergant, in Fairchild, Wis., on Tues, the 26th day of Aug, last. Mrs. Sergant, formerly Mrs. Ruth Anjer, of Marquette, was well known by very many of the old citizens of this and adjoining counties, and wherever known was highly esteemed. She was a mother of L L Anjer of this village, as also of Mrs. J S Elkins, recently removed from Marquette to Nebraska, and besides leaves one son in Pittsburg, Pa. She was also sister to C B Wheelock, of Marquette. We are not apprised of her exact age, but she had passed her allotted three score and ten years, and passed away, happy in the belief that she would have a part in that blest immortality beyond the grave, of which Christ and his apostles taught. 13 Sept.

Brown: In the town of Green Lake at the residence of I V W Severson, on the 22d day of August, Edwin N Brown aged 34 years and 6 months, of typhoid fever. 13 Sept.

We learn that the wife of David Johnson, of Harrisville, was buried last Saturday. 11 Oct.

Mrs. Joseph Baldwin died last week of spinal fever. (Marquette) 11 Oct.

McIntyre: On Tuesday, November 11th, 1873, at his home in this village, Rev. Hiram McIntyre, aged 43 years, 6 months and 21 days.
Mr McIntyre was born in Bolton, Warren county, New York, April 21st, 1825. He removed from Bennington, Vermont, to Wisconsin about 18 years ago, since which time he has been known to very many of our readers as an industrious and honest man, and also as an every day Christian.
In the spring of 1864 he enlisted in Co. F 36th Wisconsin Vol Infantry, as a private, and performed the arduous duties of a soldier, with the same earnestness, integrity and zeal that he had at home, always marked his life. To do right and obey orders, was his soldier maxim. He was slightly wounded at the battle of "Melon Patch', before Petersburg, while making a charge on the rebel works. At that time he was Orderly Sargent, but for meritorious conduct in that charge, he was brevetted Lieutenant. His comrades of the 36th all say, that if there were ever an honest Christian soldier, Hiram McIntyre was one. He remained in the service until the close of the war, when he again took his place among us in the same quiet, unobtrusive way, ever faithful in religion as in temporal duties, striving to do his Master's work well.
He was licensed to preach in the M E church, about four years ago, and many will long remember his earnest efforts as a minister for the salvation of souls. He died as he had lived, a true Christian in the full faith that he had fought a good fight, and that henceforth there was laid up for him a crown of righteousness in the city of his God.
The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. W M Richards, from the words of 1 Cor., Chap 3, verse 11: "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ;" which was chosen by Mr McIntrye before his death for the occasion. Many friends gathered to pay the last tribute of respect to the memory of a good man, too soon taken from us. 15 Nov.

We are pained to learn of the death of a son of our esteemed County Treasurer, Homer Nelson, of the town of Green Lake. Young Mr. Nelson had been in failing health for the past two years or more, and last summer made a trip to Nebraska in company with his father, to try what effect a change of climate might have. Arriving in Nebraska, they visited Mr J S Elkins, who had just got his family established in his hew home, having left this county on the April before. There Mr Nelson concluded to leave his son, providing him with an outfit to hunt buffalo, or ride for exercise, as his inclination might turn. For a time it was thought he was improving, but lately it became apparent that his end was approaching, and he started for home, arriving on Sat. last, to lie down and die with lived ones at home, on Sunday. We hear that he is to be buried today, Wed. We mingle our sympathy with the sympathizing friends and neighbors of the bereaved, although we know it can be but a poor solace to the afflicted hearts of that stricken household.
Thus are friends, severed and loved ones taken from us, and only the hope remains of a glorious hereafter, where we shall meet them. 22 Nov.

Died in Green Lake township, Nov 23d, 1873, of consumption, Frank W., son of Homer and Miranda M Nelson, aged 17 years, 9 months and 17 days.
His sickness was during most of the last five years. It originated with a cold, which so seriously affected him that he was sent to the Health Institute at Battle Creek, Mich. Here he was greatly benefited, and it was thought that his health was fully recovered. Returning to school he applied himself with great diligence to his studies. The next spring he took another cold, which resulted in consumption. His father took him to Nebraska, hoping that the change of climate might benefit him, but it was in vain. Becoming assured that his recovery was impossible, he returned to his home, where he died eight days after his arrival.
His mother's prayers were answered and her labor rewarded, in seeing him give his heart fully to the Savior. Struck down in his youth, at an age when this world looks so fair, and its pleasures are so alluring, it would be expected that there would be a shrinking from the dark valley and shadow of death, but his trust was indicated by an expression to his mother as they conversed on the subject of his resting in the grave. He said, "Jesus can let me gently down," and he was not disappointed. He died in clam and peaceful confidence, and his friends have the comforting assurance that he sleeps in Jesus, to wake in the morning of the better resurrection.
The funeral was in Markesan. Services at the Congregational meetinghouse. Sermon on 2 Cor,4:17, "Four our light affliction which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." 6 Dec.

Swett: On the 19th inst., of paralysis, John Swett, aged 71 years. Mr. Swett was born in Gilmanton, near Concord, NH, Sept 3d, 1801. He removed to Waushara County, Wis, in 1856, and to Dartford in 1863. In the fall of 1861 then 59 years of age, he enlisted in the Regiment Wisconsin Volunteers, under Capt. Edward Mace, and participated in the two day's battle, of Shiloh, in April, 1862. After serving over 13 months in the army he was honorably discharged. His funeral was at the Methodist Church on Sun last, attended by his three sons, the only surviving members of his family. Sermon by Rev. D O Jones. 27 Dec.
We learn from Mr. Bela Davis that Mr. Swett, who lives in the town of Brooklyn, near Green Lake Station, died last week Friday of apoplexy. 27 Dec.

We learn from Mr. J. Luce, of this place of the death of Mr. Balcom, an old resident of Kingston. Mr. Balcom was buried Tuesday. Mr. Luce also informed us that Mrs. Edmond Millard is very sick and is not expected to live. 27 Dec.

Family reunion: The family of S A Hake, one of our oldest citizens, had a reunion on Wed, July 2d, it being the first time for thirteen years that the family had been together. The three sons came from southern Iowa, during last week, and this week the daughters, three in number, came from their various localities to all have an old fashioned family sit down together. Although the family are considered poor talkers, yet it was feared they might become garrulous upon this occasion and to prevent any trouble in that line, A C Nye, of Ripon, son in law to S A Hake, was at some expense, got over here for moderator. Now A C is known to be one of the quiet men of the State, and we have no doubt he succeeded in keeping the family from going off a la balloon, with real happiness. If Aaron couldn't do it, who could? 5 July

Indian Land
Have you lately visited that far famed country "behint Princeton" known as the Indian Land? If not, a trip in that section would repay you or anyone interested in the development of that section of country. Many of the "blacksoilers" have spoken and do speak derisively of trying to cultivate such soil. But the trip I took last week convinced me that such persons would have to look well to the their laurels for the Indian Land crops this year will equal, if not surpass much of those raised upon what is naturally far better soil. The farmers are principally Germans, which, in all probability, you were aware was the case, and they go upon the principle of giving back to the soil in the shape of fertilizers, what is taken away by the crops. This is the only true way to farm and it is that which is bringing the Indian Land to the front rank of the agricultural lands of the State. The rye crop will be unusually large this year which will be good news to many, as it will have a tendency to decrease the price of "Old Rye." Corn ditto, wheat with no untoward circumstances will yield well. 26 July

Sad Accident: Quite a serious accident occurred near the depot in this village on last Monday evening. A boy about five years old, named Joseph Wienetzki, whose parents live near the south end of Farmer's Street, was standing on the railroad looking at the engine of the six o'clock train which had switched off, as usual, on the sidetrack leaving the cars to run down the main track. The boy was so engaged in looking at the passing engine that he did not notice the cars until they were close upon him, and several persons on the depot platform noticing his situation at this moment shouted to get out of the way, whereupon he ran off the track but becoming frightened ran on again and was caught underneath one of the wheels and his right leg horribly mangled just below the knee. Both bones were entirely cut off. Drs. DeVoe and Holly were called upon and dressed the wound and it is thought that with good care it may heal and amputation be unnecessary. This is the third serious accident that has occurred among the boys of our village since the introduction of the railroad and we sincerely hope that this will prove a lesson to those boys who are perpetually around the cars and engines. Later: It is now feared that the boy will die. 23 Aug.

Terrible Disaster, A New York Steamship Sunk at Sea, 226 of her Passengers Lost
News comes from London of another terrible marine disaster. At 2o'clcok in this morning of the 23d of November, the steamship Ville du Havre, which left New York Nov 15, for Havre, France, collided with the British ship Loch Erne, and sank in twelve minutes. Two hundred and twenty six passengers of the Ville du Havre were lost, eighty seven being saved by the ship Trimountain. The ill-fated vessel was struck amidships by the Loch Erne. The latter vessel immediately lowered her boats, which rendered all the service possible by them. Fifty three of the crew were saved, including the Captain, and those go to make up the eighty seven saved. Among the passengers lost were several members of the late Evangelical Alliance, returning to their homes. Etc. . . 13 Dec.
