Thirty-five years ago S. F. Cass started a little neighborhood store in his house on the prairie in Bremer Co. In time a little town grew up about him that was named Sumner, and he prospered until his wealth was rated upwards of half-a-million dollars, but a few days ago he died, as all must, and others reap where he has sowed. There may be millions to make but it is well to remember death is in the world just the same for rich as poor.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he is buried in Union Mound Cemetery in Sumner and that he was born Jan. 31, 1839 and died March 11, 1900.
