Funeral services for Carl N. Guth were held at the home of his daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bleck, at Clintonville, last Friday at 10:30 a.m. and interment was made at the family lot in the Dorchester Memorial Cemetery with the Rev. G. E. Zellmer, pastor of the Salem Evangelical Church at Clintonville, officiating. The choir sang "The Blessed Lights of Home", "Going Down the Valley One by One", and "Gathering Home."

Carl N. Guth was born near Germantown on Feb. 10, 1851 and was 84 years and 7 months old at time of death. He grew to young manhood at the family home and on Jan. 13, 1874, he was united in marriage to Miss Emma Miller, who passed away in 1922.

Mr. Guth was engaged in the harness making trade until his health compelled him to retire from the business. He then engaged in farming, which he followed for the remainder of his active career, living near Clintonville, Marshfield, and Dorchester, Wis. After retiring from farming he made his home with his daughters at Clintonville, spending the last five years at the Bleck home where he was cared for.

Mr. Guth leaves one son, Edwin, of Dorchester, and two daughters, Mrs. William Gould, nee Elizabeth, and Mrs. Henry Bleck, nee Alma, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and many relatives and friends to mourn his loss. Besides his wife, two sons, one at the age of two years, and Byron, of Dorchester, have preceded him in death.

Mr. Guth was a member of the Evangelical Church and was vitally interested in the spiritual and education of his children. He was a public spirited man whose presence and personality was felt by all who came to know and love him. Wherever he lived his interest was centered around the building of a better community and home life and his host of friends will greatly miss him.
