Bright hopes that burn like stars sublime
Go down the skies of freedom
And kind hearts perish in the time
We bitterest need them
Yet never sit down and say
Thereís nothing left but sorrow
We sow the golden grain today
The harvest comes tomorrow
And our dear dead in shrouds today
Shall rise again tomorrow.
Hope shines like a star.  No man can aspire beyond his nature any more than a bird can fly beyond the compass of its wings.  Aspirations may be realized; we have no argument but our need, no language but our cry.  We take Thee because we need Thee; we need Thee because we were made for Thee.

Surnames: Holmes, Bump
This community was much shocked on Friday morning to learn of the death of Ezra S. Holmes, at the residence of his brother-in-law, G.L. Bump on the evening before.  Mr. Holmes had arrived at Mr. Bumpís Thursday morning for a few days visit before returning to his home in Brownton, Minn., and was accompanied by his wife and two children.  During the day he complained of not feeling well, but refused to have a physician, as he did not consider the case was dangerous and retired at an early hour.  About 10:00 he sprung from his bed, geasping his throat and seemingly in great agony.  Mr. Bump came to his relief but when the patient was laid on the bed life was extinct.  Dr. Roberts was called and pronounced the cause of his death as laryngitis.  Mr. Holmes was born on the farm Mr. Bump now lives on and grew to manhood there.  He went to Brownton, Minn when a young man and has a handsome property there.  The remains were shipped home for interment.  Mrs. Bump and Mrs. L.G. Holmes accompanied the bereaved wife and children.  Mr. And Mrs. Holmes have two other children living at Brownton.

Mrs. Lawrence HORAN
Surnames: Horan, Clemmer
Mrs. Lawrence Horan, who had been in poor health for some time past, died at her late residence at 3:30 oíclock Thursday morning.  Mrs. Horanís maiden name was Clemmer; she was a native of Wisconsin, and would have been 31 years of age next April.  She was married in Algona October 13, 1892 to Mr. Horan, who had come shortly before that and provided a home for her.  Since that time Mr. And Mrs. Horan have lived in Algona and occupied the same residence with Mr. Horanís brother and wife, who was Mrs. Horanís sister.  About a year ago last June her health began to fail, and despite all that could be done in the way of medical treatment and affectionate care, she grew almost constantly worse until the end came.  She had but recently arrived home from a two monthsí visit with her parents in Monroe.  She leaves no children.  Anticipating the end her father and mother were here at the time of her death and her sister from Wisconsin and other relatives from Charles City are expected today.  The funeral will take place from the house at 2:00 tomorrow afternoon and will be conducted by Rev. Stiles of the Baptist Church.  The whole community sympathize with the bereaved husband and realtives of the deceased.óAlgona, Iowa Courier, January 27.

Died, at his home in the town of Sylvester, Monday, Feb. 17, 1890, Erastus Hulburt, aged 48 years, 8 months and 20 days.  Brother Hulburt was born at North Manlius, NY and came to this state in March, 1859.  He united with the Baptist Church at the age of 12 years and was a faithful member until death.  He had been in feeble health for a number of years, but never in all these years has he neglected Christian duty, either at the family altar, the covenant meeting or church work.  He has been a member and regular attendant of the Monticello Prairie Church since his advent into the state and has worked faithfully in Sunday School as superintendent, or as teacher of the bible class.  His constant plea has been, even when many others were discouraged and when the church was without an under-shepherd, that we must persevere in the Christian work.  He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his departure, his youngest child being but eleven years old, but he had the satisfaction of seeing them all in the fold of Christ.  The funeral was held at the Gap Church on Tuesday, the service being conducted by Rev. J. Andereck of Juda, assisted by the pastor of the M.E. Church at Albany, and the remains were interred in the adjoining cemetery.  The bereaved family has the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends.  J.A.
