Conrad Heimbigner was born in Frank, Germany, April 15, 1860 and after an illness covering the past two years, passed away Sunday night, September 9. Death resulted from an ulcer of the stomach.

Mr. Heimbigner came to America with his parents in 1878, and settled in Nebraska. From there they meved to Walla Walla, Washington and in ]887 he was joined in wedlock to Katherina Schiffner. To this union twelve children were born, ten of whom are now living, to mourn the loss of their father. They are David Con, Lucile Dorothy, Anne Mary,
J()ses>h George, Henry Frank, Walter Clarence, Samuel Martin, Harry Alvin, Frederick William and Clara Emma.

He and his family came to Montana November 8, 1909 and homesteaded a half section 6-1/2 miles north east of town. He entered farming on a large scale and up till 1916 met with big success. But the dry years, worms and grasshoppers came and during this period he still farmed extensively, firm in his belief that this section would "come back."

Funeral services will be preached by Miss Nelle Phillips this afternoon at 2 p. m. at the M.E. church, and the body will then be shipped to Retzville, Wash. for burial.
