"OLE C. LANGLAND DEAD

One of the Most Prominent and Respected Men in Story County, Was Native of Norway.

Ole C. Langland, one of the pioneer and best known Norwegian citizens of the county, died at his home near Roland Tuesday afternoon and was buried in the cemetery Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Langland, a man about 65 years of age, was a native of Norway. He enlisted in the Union army with an Illinois regiment, during the civil war, and immediately after his return home, following a five years' service he moved with his wife to a farm about two miles southwest of Roland where he has since made his home. He was a father of eight children. Mrs. Langland died a few years ago and a few years afterwards he contracted a second marraige, which did not prove at all successful and culminated in a divorce.

Mr. Langland died very wealthy, although he had been unfortunate in a number of financial ventures some years ago. He was one of the heavy losers in the well known Hammond Land Company which was pulled off by L.J. Tjernagle and others of Story City a number of years ago. He was easily considered one of the most successfull farmers and stock raisers in the county, was prominent in local politics and church affairs and was one of the most respected men in this part of the county.

He had been a sufferer for some years from some sort of a cancerous growth, which was the cause of his death. The funeral was a large one and attended by people from all over the county."
