Mr. Hartung was born in Sibley County, Minnesota, June 6th, 1880, where he lived until moving to the Potlatch with the rest of the family in 1901, making and holding the friendship of every resident of the Potlatch section, being universally esteemed as a young man of upright character.

The death of August is the first break in a family of 8 children, surviving him, besides a father and mother, are two brothers, Carl and Wm. A., both living near Cameron; and five sisters, Mrs. Theresa Mielke, Mrs. Helena Schwarz and Misses Eda and Emma Hartung, who live in this section, and Mrs. Johanna Schmidt of Spokane.

Funeral services, which were very largely attended, were held Tuesday, March 1st, with burial at Cameron cemetery.

We miss thee from our home, dear son
and brother,
We miss thee from thy place;
A shadow o'er lives is cast;
We miss the sunshine of they face,
We miss thy kind and loving hand,
Thy fond and earnest care;
Our home is dark without thee, son and
We miss thee everywhere.

Card of Thanks

We desire in this manner to express our sincere appreciation for the kindness and sympathy of the many neighbors and friends during the sickness and death of our son and brother.

By the Family.
