Mrs. William Anthony, 75, passed away on Monday. Mrs. Anthony, nee Alice Eliza Sweet, was born in Herrick township, Pa., on Aug. 3, 1866, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Sweet. She came to Wisconsin with her parents when she was 15 years old. They purchased a farm at Romadka in Clark county, where she lived until the death of her parents. Then she went to live with her sister, Mrs. John Breese, who lived in the same neighborhood. There she made her home until her marriage to William Anthony on Dec. 5, 1894, and has since lived in the town of York.

Her husband and two children survive, the two children, Claude and Ruby, living at home. Her sister, Mrs. Angie Breese, town of York, also survives. One son, Rella, died at Algiers, France, shortly after the first World war on Dec. 17, 1918.
