Miss Maud Isbell of Larned, Pawnee County, Kansas and Mr. Ellsworth E. James of Northeast Overbrook were married at Lyndon Kansas on 11-30-1908. Miss Isbell spent some time in our town about the time of the Street Fair, and the acquantance, which we are told began somewhat accidentally, soon ripened in attachment, in fact, perhaps it would not be too much to say it was love at first sight. Mr. James is well known here, and makes a business of threshing during the season. His friends will extend a cordial welcome to his bride. We wish the young couple a long and happy married life.

2828 WAHOO WASP - JUNE 20, 1929




Overworked by his attempt to farm 240 acres without help and ill health led Arthur Walin, 29, farmer of Ceresco to take his own life early Tuesday morning, according to Sheriff's officers.
Walin's body was found hanging in a rafter in his barn at 7 o'clock Tuesday morning by his wife Christiana, when she went to tell her husband breakfast was ready. He rose early Tuesday morning and went to the barn to do the chores, his wifd officers.
She summoned Dr. Noyes of Ceresco. When he arrived, he pronounced Walin dead and notified Sheriff Hensell. Walin had been dead several hours, Dr. Noyes said.
In addition to his wife, Walin leaves a 2-year old child, his father and mother, five sisters and two brothers all living in Lancaster County. The body was removed to the C. E. Ericson mortuary at Wahoo.


Mr. Arthur Lawrence Walin was born at Ceresco, Nebr. February 10, 1899. He became a charter member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church, when it was organized just ten years ago, and has been a faithful member of said church until his death.

On February 23, 1927, he married Miss Christiana Heiser, and from that time Mr. and Mrs. Walin have made their home four miles south-west of Ceresco. A baby boy was born to them February 1, 1928.Our departed friend has always lived a consistent Christian life. He has loved and used the word of God faithfully.

Of late his health has failed, and his suffering has been far greater than we can realize. During these weeks his good wife stood by his side and strengthened and comforted him with the word of God.

Mr. Walin passed away Tuesday morning, June 18, 1929, at the age of 30 years, 4 months and 7 days. He leaves to mourn his departure the widow, Mrs. Arthur Walin and little Stanley Leroy; the parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Walin, the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Brodd; brothers, Carl and Edward; sisters, Mrs. Theo Anderson, Mrs. Herbert Nelson, Mrs. Henry Heiser, Mrs. Willie Widman, Mrs. Edward Heiser, and many other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services wer conducted from the C. L. Walin home at 2:00 o'clock and from the Lutheran church at 2:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon, when Rev. Peterson spoke on these words from Psalm 39:13 - "Oh, spare me that I may recover strength, before I go hence and be no more."

The pallbearers were Herman Walin, Martin Trued, Clemens Brodd, Herbert Brodd, Harold Brodd, and Herman Pearson. Burial was made in the Swedeburg Lutheran Cemetery.

May God sustain and comfort the bereaved and guide them in His wisdom and love, to the end that they "may be strong to applaud with all the saints what is the breadth and the length and depth and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge that you may be ??? until all the fullness of God."
