■ J| EMU: MEu ■ ■ > Vol. V CARMEL, INDIANA, RiDAY, NOV. 3, 1911 No. 2» MRS. NANCY JANE KINZER Mrs. Nancy Jane Kinzer the wife of William Kinzer died at her home one mile east of Carmel on Monday night at 1 o'clock, October 22, 1911. Her sickness extended over a period of over one year and many times it was expected that she could not survive but for a very short time. But often she rallied and seemed to be much better with a hope for recovery. These hopes always proved delusive. Paralysis was the main trouble, at first light strokes but later one that para- lized the entire right side, also destroying her power of speech. This was a great drawback in caring for her. She could not tell her wants. During all of her sickness she eared for by her husband and three sons. She thought a great deal of her sons and often when they would pass the window she would salute them with a wave of her hand and they would re im the greeting with a gesture and kind smiles. She emphatically believed in her sons and they in her. Years ago n she was sick and did not ct to get well she called them to her and gave some good motherly advice. Her death came calm and jeful, her last hours were just like a lamp going out for it sinking lower and bvvar with no movement of a muscle. No one could tell when really the spirit took its flight. The funeral was held Wednesday evening from the home conducted by undertaker Nutt of Carmel, Willis Bond, of Danville, lnd. conducting the religious services. Mrs. Kinzer was not a member of any religious denomination, but was a good woman according to the general acceptation of the term. Mrs. Kinzer was born in North Carolina December 14th, 1839, In 1868 she came to Indiana and for a few years resided near Carmel and worked as a domestic in many homes in and near Carmel and some in the factory at Westfield. On the 2d of January 1872 she was married to William Kinzer and spent the rest of her life upon the farm east of Carmel in camparative peace and quiet. To this union were born Albert, John, Henry and Mary Jane Kinzer. The latter died at 9 years of age. Those who survive Mrs. Kinzer and were near and dear to her are her husband, three sons, a mother, two sisters, and five grandchildren. Mrs. Kinzer from the time she was 15 years of age worked al most continuosly in the cotton mill either spinning or weaving at all times. The factory day was from early until late. Es pecially was this the case in time of the civil war, when the factories were crowded with orders. During the war nany boys and men were caught up and rushed into the rebel army. These factory girls and others took an active part in hiding out and feeding these boys and men to keep them out of the army. Food would be left at soma agreed on place and at night they could step out and get it. Some times the boys would be furnished wcmen clothing so the better to escape, being caught. It meant death to many of these union boys if caught, so thev owe a great debt of gratitude to these women and they appreciate it. These factory girls stand by each other about as a company of soldiers. Mrs. Kinzer and these girls were active workers in the relief of such as these and much of their means and time went to help the needy and waiting on the sick. May we profit by the lesson and live so as to have a clear conscience. William Kinzer. HOLD INVESTIGATION J. A.

HUNTERS START ON TRIP The hunting party from Carmel, departed Tuesday for their annual hunt in the northern wilds. The party consisted of John Graves, Fred Johnson, Austin Sheets, Milo Hershey, Dr. K. C. Hershey, H. A Roberts, all of Carmel, and George Younq, of Sheridan. Lew Eller, of Carmel, accompanied the party in the capacity of cook. The party this year will go to Glidden, Wis., and from there will procure teams, and transfer their baggage overland through the woods a distance of fourteen miles. Owing to the condition of the woods for travel, the capacity of the two wagons will be taxed with the supplies for the camp, and the hunters will be required to "hoof it." The camp will be established in the north-western part of Wisconsin, near the state line of Minnesota. As a representative of the Standard accompanied the party, full details of the expedition may be expected in this paper each week hereafter until the party returns.

WILL VOTE ON LIGHT PLANT An election has been ordered for November 24th to determine the matter of electric lights and electric power for Carmel. The proposition embodies the expenditure of $6500 by bonding the town for this amount, current being taken from the Traction line. The board has put the matter up to the voter and it is for the citizens to determine. A careful consideration should be given the proposition before the voter enters the booth. He should determine for himself by investigation and not by the testimony of someone who is for it or "forninst it." This fact should have due consideration that the bonding of the town will not call for any additional tax and if this proposition is turned down then the only resource to get the lights and power will be by taxation and several now claim their taxes are too high. Westfield is making arrangements to install an acetylene lighting system but they have not as yet determined the way in which they will secure them. Probably by issuing bonds.
