At One O'Clock
          Mrs. Regina Brummer, one of Shelby County's best known and most highly esteemed women, died Sunday morning at 1 o'clock at her home at the north edge of the city on State Road 29.  A complication of aliments incidental to her advanced age was the cause of death.  She was a widow of the late  Frederick August Brummer.
          Born February 27, 1849 in Batesville, Mrs. Brummer was aged 83 years, one months and twenty-one day.  She was united in marriage to Mr. Brummer on December 9, 1869, to which seven children were born, two of whom survive.  Mr. Brummer died on February 26, 1913.
          Surviving are a son, Charles, and a daughter, Mrs. Anna Schuler, north of this city, three grandchildren and one sister who lives in California.
          Mrs. Brummer was a woman of fine christian character, was active in the interests of the community and was devoted to her family.  Her husband Frederick Brummer, had a distinguished career in public life in Shelby county, serving on the county council from 1902 until 1913, the time of his death.  Just before his death, he became president of that assembly.
          Funeral services for Mrs. Brummer will be held at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in charge of Dr. L. O. Richmond, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of this city, and burial will take place in Forest Hill cemetery in charge of C. F. Fix and Son, local funeral directors.

Had Suffered With Paralysis For Several Months
And Had Been Retired For The Past Nineteen Years
          August Brummer, president of the city council of this county, died at his home a short distance north of the city, Wednesday morning at 5:30 o'clock of paralysis.  Mr. Brummer had been ill with the disease for the past several months and several times his death had been expected by his relatives and friends.  Mr. Brummer suffered his last stroke on the last Thanksgiving Day and since that time had steadily declined.
          He was probably one of the best known farmers in this county and was known by many outside of the county
          He was elected to the county council in November, 1902, and for a number of years has acted as president of that body.  During his health he took an active part in the affairs of the county and also of this city.  Because of his ill health he was forced to give up most of his activities and seek the open and more healthy pursuit of farming.
          Mr. Brummer was born in Cincinnati, Ohio July 28, 1848, and at the time of his death was sixty-four years, six months and twenty-eight days old.  He lived in Batesville several years and while still a child, his parents moved to Batesville.  From Batesville Mr. Brummer came to this city, moving here in 1875.
          For nineteen years he was superintendent of the old Conrey-Waller-DePrez Furniture Company, now the Conrey Furniture Company of this city.  December 9, 1869 he was married to  Miss Regina Schmidt  of Ripley county.  To this union seven children were born, three of whom survive.  They are  Mrs. Anna Schuler, of this county;  Mrs. Frank Allbright, of Indianapolis and  Charles Brummer, who resides at home.  He is also survived by his wife, one brother,  Fred Brummer, of Batesville; three sisters,  Mrs. Frank Weatherhead, of this county;  Mrs. Theodore Saleshurst, of Covington, Kentucky and  Mrs. Henry Severinhouse, of Batesville and one grandchild,  George Schuler, of Anderson.
          Mr. Brummer was a staunch member of the Lutheran Church and held his membership in the Batesville church.  He affiliated with that church during his residence there.  The funeral services will be held at the late home north of this city, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. S. Caldemeyer officiating.  Interment will be made in Forest Hill Cemetery in charge of Ralph J. Edwards.
