--Elder E. A. Davis of Independence, Mo., who has been holding a series of services at the Latter Day Saints church, gave several very interesting discourses. After hearing his sermon you would be convinced that it is worth while to be a real true Christian. You would also feel that you knew there is a God who is unchangeable and kind and watches over those who obey His laws. To hear Bro. Davis is to know he is an able defender of all truth and right. He has started a series of cottage services at the home of Bro. Chas. McKusker 166 Ave. N. to last each evening this week.
    He is assisted by Elder L. Houghton of Madison, Wis., who is a speaker you'd love to hear. Come out.
All are Welcome.

   Many of the older residents will remember Nathanial H. Baldwin, who at one time resided in Oelwein. By way of the Callaway, Neb., Queen we learn of his death in that city. He has two brothers-in-law and a sister-in-law living in Oelwein, Mrs. Minnie Brown, Clarence Hockings and A. L. Hockings. The Callaway paper has the following obituary"
   Nathanial N. Baldwin was born at Gaines, Orleans County, New York, October 24th, 1832. When a baby he went with his parents to Michigan by ox team via Canada.
   His mother dying when he was three years old, he went with his father to Illinois at the age of fourteen. Here he lived with he was about twenty-one he went to Iowa where he worked for many years on the railroad helping to construct a large number of bridges especially on the Rock Island.
He helped elect Abraham Lincoln, but was prevented from enlisting as a soldier in the Civil War by an accident which partially disabled him at that time.
   In 1873 he was married to Fannie J. Hockings. To this union was born seven children, five of whom are living, two dying in infancy. They made their home at Oelwein, Fayette County, Iowa until 1885 when they moved to Custer County, Nebraska and shared the hardships of the early pioneer days of this country.
   He was converted in 1886 and became a charter member of the Evangelical church, of which he remained a faithful member until his death.
   His wife preceded him to the better world three years ago in February since when he has made his home among his children, who have tried to make up as best they could the loss of his companion at the age of ninety years.
   His has been a life a noble devotion and self sacrifice to all those he loved and he was a friend to all who knew him.
   He departed this life at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edith J. Province, January 15th, 1926, at the age of ninety-three years two months and twenty-one days. He leaves to mourn his departure five children: Edith J. Province of Oconto, Annie E. Pierce of Oconto, John W. of Eddyville, Wm.

-Last night at the Green Lantern a good boxing tournament was staged before a good crowd, and held under the auspices of the American Legion.
The curtain raiser was between the Rizzo brothers, paperweights who went at it hammer and tongs for four rounds.
The next bout was between young Voelker and Aliano, and the latter had the shade over the former in four two-minute rounds of read out work.
Smokey Hodges and Turkey B. Parker then went four fast and furious rounds to a draw. Both were from Oelwein.
Gerald Glenn of Oelwein and John McGraw of Waterloo went four good rounds, with the points favoring the Oelwein man.was
Red Fanta of Oelwein and Ralph Courghan of Waterloo, also put on four good rounds, with the odds favoring the Waterloo man.
     Billy Hoon of Muscatine won in a six-round go with Albert Schumack.
     If decisions were rendered Cally Franks of Cedar Rapids would probably have been handed the contest with Hamilton Woods of Oelwein.
    The big event came when Glen Lage of Marshalltown and Jack Lamb of Muscatine started out at a merry clipp on an eight round go. During the fifth round Lamb went down and it was found his ear was so badly lacerated that before the referee could give the count his seconds threw the towel in the ring. Several stitches were taken in the ear. Lage is touted as the welter weight champion of Iowa, and his work last night indicated that it would require a nightly good man to wrest the title from him.
   This made 39 rounds of boxing in the tournament and three more would have been added had the last bout gone the limit.
