One of Our Well Known CitizensGiven Write Up in Northwood
The following article is taken fromlast week’s Northwood, lowa, Index,and will be read with interest by themanpr friends of Mr. Hustvedt:
“Mr. H. B. Hustvedt of Decorahwas one of North wood’e distinguish-ed visitors of this week when he wasmainly the jucst of his life longfriend, T. L. Ringham. Thirty-sevenyears ago Mr. H„ then in his youngmanhood, was serving the North-wood Synod congregation as its ablepastor. We well remember his goodwork in the amendment campaign of1882. It was sometime that yearthat his vocal cords failed him, an 1he abandoned the active work of theministry to take a position with theLutheran Publishing House and thePosten of Decorah. We also thinkbeen in ministerial, literary and edu-cational work almost ever since. Hehas certainly grown gray in* the ser-vice, but we recognized him —as anold friend—almost at the firstglance. He lias seven worthy child-ren, all engaged in honorable ser-vice. His oldest son, Prof. S. B. Hust-vedt, has a fine position with theUniversity of Minnesota. Prof. H.won his degree as Doctor of Philoso-phy at Harvard, and later as winnerof the Parker traveling fellowship,had the advantage of a year of studyand travel in Europe, mainly in Eng-land, tho’ he spent some time inNorway, Denmark and Germany, andwas glad enough to get out of thelast named country during the firstweeks of the war. Prof. H. utilizedthis town as his birthplace, in 1881.so Northwood has a claim on himand his honors! Another son, OlafMandt Hustvedt having the blood of
the Vikings in his veins, is a lieu-tenant Commander on board theBattleship Utah, on service in theEnglish Channel. His wife is adaughter of Judge Church of Hono-lulu. Thomas is an employee inthe Decorah postoffice, and Williethe youngest boy, is in service inFrance, if not already on Germansoil, he being a soldier of the fam-ous third trmy. Of the three daugh-ters of the Hustvedt family, one isat home in Decorah and two are liv-ing at Granite Falls, Minn.
As an old friend we secured thisinformation from a most unassumingman, by hard pumping. We pass iton to other friends who will be glad 1to hear anything good, and whowould not expect to hepr anythingelse of tfcfe Hustvedt family.

which baker Dotseth was about tocook doughnut*, burst into flame at6:30 p. m. and caused a fire alarm.It was a bad looking blaze for a fewminutes, especially as the hospitalwith u number of patients is locatedin the second story of the building,but w;:en Mr. Dotseth recovered hispresence of mind and put the lid onthe caldron the danger was over.The interior of the bakery wr asscorched and blackened by the smokebut the damage was light.*—WaukonJournal.

,'natei influenza the special hefclth
