    Notes 
    • Friends, neighbors and relatives mourned last week the passing of another of their dearest citizens, a lady young in years, a kind and loving mother, and a good friend. Mrs. Otto Mindrum passed away following an illness of several years duration, entering into the final sleep at 12 o'clock Tuesday, April 16 at the age of 44 years, 4 months and 12 days. Olga Overland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Overland, was born on December 3, 1890, at her parent's home on Highland Prairie. She continued to live there until her marriage on June 30, 1915, to Otto Mindrum, after which she and her husband established their own home on the Prairie. Mrs. Mindrum was a member of the Highland Prairie Lutheran church, a kind and loving wife and mother who took an especial interest in the welfare of her home and children. Besides her husband, she is survived by her three sisters and three brothers, Alette Overland, Mrs. Alfred Peterson, Mrs. Hans Evenskaas, Peder, George and Eddie Overland. Funeral services were last Friday, April 19 at the home, Rev. N. S. Magelssen officiating. Songs were rendered by the choir and a ladies sextet, Mrs. Magelssen accompanying. Interment was made in the Highland Prairie cemetery. Pall bearers were: Selmer Overland Jr., and Olaf Anfinson. Beautiful floral offerings were given by the Freshmen and Sophomore classes of the Rushford High School. The Record joins with the many friends in the extension of sympathy to those who remain to mourn her passing.

But dear me my cold has been enough to kill me and if I should have got more I am afraid it might have been serious. I think I shall be better soon. I have had a headache all day and I am so hoarse. I was so homesick Sunday, such a lovely day and I had to sit here like a bump on a log. Write to me soon and tell me all. Lovingly, Selma
