           Jacob Weidner  died suddenly of heart trouble at the home of his niece, Mrs. Benjamin Miller, St. Paul at 11 o’clock Tuesday morning aged 72 years 8 months and 11 days.  The end came as he was sitting in a chair and occurred before shocked relatives could summon medical aid.  He had been in failing health for several months, but his condition was not considered serious.  Mrs. Miller was alone with him at the time he was stricken and she at once summoned Dr. Wilcox, but the aged man was dead when the physician arrived.  Mr. Weidner was a life-long resident of Noble township, and was widely known as a successful farmer and thoroughly dependable citizen whose character was above reproach.  He was a brother of the late  Daniel Weidner, of Noble township.  His wife died several years ago and for a time he made his home with John Hinkle, in Noble township.  He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Flora Taylor  of Crupp, Washington.  The funeral will await her arrival, and will be held at the Valley church at ten o’clock next Sunday morning, April 30, Rev. Mr. Bevin, of St. Paul officiating, and the interment will be made in the Ogden cemetery.  The deceased leaves three sisters,  Mrs. Gross,  Mrs. Hannah Hinkle  and  Mrs. Katherine Dodds, and a brother, Leander, who lives in Arcola, Illinois.
