MRS. MARY OLSON-LAMB
Mary Olson-Lamb, the daughter of
C. E, Olson of Dallas, was born at
Norse, on August 30, 1880, and died
on September 14, 1928 at Los Ange-
les, California, at the age of 48 years
and 16 days.
Death was caused by blood-poison-
ing which set up after a tooth had
been extracted about a month before

Her mother and two brothers pre-
ceded her in death.
Although she had not made ber
home here for some twenty-five year'
she had been born here, grew up
here, and loved this community, and
always felt herself a member of it
Baptized in infancy by Rev. J. K.
Rystad, she grew to young girlhood
under the Christian influence of the
Lutheran Church, and was confirmed
into this church at the age of fifteen
She never transferred her member-
ship, but always remained a member
of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church of
Norse, and loved it and visited it as
often as she had opportunity. And
when death drew near, she let it be
understood that she wished to be
buried there in the cemetery of her
childhood church, to that she might
lie beside her departed mother. Her
wish was granted.
The funeral services were conduct-
ed by Rev. E. R. Larson of Norse,
at the Martin Olson home and at the
Norse Lutheran church on Thursday
afternoon of last week, the body
having been shipped here from Los
Clarence (Moco) Carpenter of
China Springs was here Tuesday for
a visit with relatives and friends.
Young Carpenter has won the admi-
ration of many Clifton friends who
have seen him on a number of occa-
sions in the boxing ring. He is a sci-
entific fighter and has won quite e
reputation over this and adjoining

ton were here Wednesday and Wed-
nesday night the guests of Mr. and
Mrs. C. E. Swenson and other Clifton
Waco. Mr., Hill is well-known in thi&jiriends. Bill spent several of hia boy-
hood years in Clifton when his par-
ents made this their home and his
father, Rev. W. M. Lewis, now de-
ceased, was pastor of the First Pres-
byterian Church of this city. Mrs
Lewis never lived here but Bill re-
membered many of the Clifton peo-

been away seventeen years and was
a mere boy when he left here.
Death is as natural as birth. When
cur time comes we must all pass on
Why should death then be regarded as
a blow or unexpected tragedy? A sen-
sible man should make preparation
for death, as he makes plans for oHfe.
He should by means of life insurance
so ararnge that his dependents will
not be thrown into economic suffering
at his departure.
