Carl O. Lein was born in Norway, June 13th, 1864, came to Hesper with his parents when about three years old, and, with the exception of the last five days of his life had made this his home. He was married on March 11th, 1891. to Miss Louise Tamnes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Tamnes. About two years ago disease began its deadly work, and in spite of the physicians and. a six months’ sojourn in Texas, on Aug. 10th, 1898, Carl passed away, leaving to mourn his loss his wife and three daughters, besides all who over made his acquaintance. The funeral services were held at the Lutheran church on the 12th, and were conducted by Rev. Mr. Linghaugh, pastor of the churches at Mabel and Hesper, assisted by Rev. Mr. Arveson, a former school mate with Carl at Luther College, who gave a short but ernest address in English. Miss Mae Decker, Mrs. G. R. Oren, Mr. C. A. Hiatt and Mr. H. C. Rowe sang hymns from the Methodist hymnal Carl was one of the best of boys, always ready to help in every good work. Being a good musician and possessing a fine voice, he was often called upon to assist at Sunday school and Memorial exercises, and always cheerfully responded to the call. While living in La Crosse he was a member of the Grieg Quartette and also of Normanna Sangerkor. Yes, as Mr. Arveson said, "Carl was a good boy," and we shall all miss him.
