FUNERAL OF CHAS. SCHULTE.
Aug 19, 99 (hand written)

Moscow, Iowa, Aug. 22.-Yesterday afternoon occurred the funeral of one of our best citizens, and many old friends and neighbors were gathered with sorrowing relatives to do the last honor to a beloved friend who had passed away so untimely. Rev. H.R. Osborn, of Sweetland, conducted the services in a most impressive way and the church choir of the M.E. church of Moscow sang a few selections fitting to the occasion. All that was mortal was laid away in the family lot in the Overman graveyard, near Atalissa.

Charles Schulte was born in the Rhine province, Germany, Jan. 15, 1840, and died at the Post Graduate Hospital, Chicago, Aug. 19, 1899, age 59 years, 7 months and four days. He received his education in Werden, Germany. When seventeen years of age he came to America and settled in Muscatine county, Iowa. On Sept. 11, 1854, he was married to Dianna Stonebruner.

Several times he was elected assessor for Moscow township. He served the county for three years as one of its supervisors, and was treasurer of the Moscow school district for many years and had the full confidence of everybody, his word being as good as gold.

The weakness which eulminated in his death first made its appearance in February last. He was a member of the Lutheran church of the Fatherland. He died in the faith of a loving Savior. He leaves his aged and feeble wife and many relative and friends to mourn his death. A kind friend, good neighbor and noble man has gone to his reward.
