Glimses From The Past

From the Glenwood Herald June 17, 1915

Rev. H. Soltau on account of his poor health has resigned as pastor of the Glenwood Methodist Church and will for the next year follow farming on his forty acre farm near Barnum, Minn.  Rev Soltau preached his farewell sermon a week ago last Sunday.  In the 18 months of his pastorate the church has prospered and Mr. and Mrs. Soltau have made a host of friends that regret to see them leave Glenwood and hope that he will have a speedy recovery of his health.  Rev. Geo. A. Hanna, who for the past four years has been engaged in the newspaper business in Paynesville and Annandale, Minn., has been appointed to fill out the conference year.  Rev. Hanna has had eleven years’ experience in the pastorate in the southern part of the state.

The Herald has contracted for the exclusive use in this county for the coming year, beginning with next week, of a series of cartoons to be drawn by Charles L. Bartholomew, known as Bart, formerly cartoonist for the Minneapolis Journal.
