William Schultz, in his 87th year,, died at 10:30 p.m. Thursday at he home of his son, Henry, in Fairmont township.

38 years ago Mr. Schultz brought his family to Mankato, where he resided on a farm until his retirement 8 years ago. He then came to Fairmont to live with his son, Henry, who has given him tender care during the years of his helplessness.

Mr. Schultz' wife departed this life four years ago. Six children survive: Mrs. Lizzie Mathews, Aberdeen, S.D., Mrs. Augusta Zemple, Wheaton, Minn., Mrs. Bertha Head, Saskatchewan, Mrs. Ida Faust, St. Cloud, William, Fargo, N.D., and Henry of Fairmont township.
