There will be an outdoor service at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 11 for the Prairie Lutheran Parish at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, rural Iroquois. Everyone is welcome.

Phil Larson of Broken Bow, Neb., arrived last weekend to pick up Connie and Jasmine. They returned with him on Sunday after spending the past two weeks with Harriet Hattervig.

Mark and Lisa Hinkley of De Smet took Harriet Hattervig to a medical appointment last week in Mitchell. Miranda Hattervig and Auden stopped Saturday to see Harriet after helping Tate move to North Dakota.

From “Carthage, Gem of the Redstone,” by Sally Madison.

The Campanile on the campus of SDSU in Brookings was given by Charles Coughlin from Carthage. He was born in Carthage in 1885 and attended school in Carthage and at the college in Brookings. He graduated as an electrical engineer and accepted employment with the Briggs and Stratton Corporation in Milwaukee, Wis. He rose to the position of president for 35 years. In 1929, he presented and dedicated the campanile.

Mr. Coughlin enjoyed hunting and returned to Carthage often with friends and executives of the company. The family home is still in Carthage and is known as “The Coughlin House.” It is a B&B. Coughlin died in 1972.
