Mrs. George Zelle died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. August Schulz, in the town of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., last Sunday morning, Oct. 24th, 1909, of general debility, incident to old age.

She leaves five daughters to mourn her death, Mesdames Chas. Meyer, Aug. Schulz and Chas. Radtke of Colby, and Aug. Hannemann and Chas. Schoenemann of the town of Wein, all of whom are here for the funeral.
