The death of Mrs. James Garten of this township, which occured Thursday night of last week, is an
event peculiar in its sadness because of its unexpectedness. Nearby friends not knowing of her illnes until informed of her death. We are not in possession of the facts in detail, but we understand she was ill hardly a day. Dr. Bond was called and pronounced her ailment congestion of the stomach, and despite his best efforts he failed to stay its progress. Mrs. Garten was yet young, having but recently reached her 39th birthday. In all instances the wife and mother is the one member of the family whose loss is most deeply felt, whose place can not be filled. Mr. Garten and his family of seven children will realize this as the weary days pass slowly by. The funeral services were held at the residence and were attended by a large concourse of sympathizing friends and neighbors.
