The sudden death of Archille GIORGI Saturday night at 10 o'clock came as
a shock to relatives and friends here. Mr. GIORGI was born in Luca,
Italy and at his death was 40y 18d. He came to this city six years ago,
establishing a gent's furnishings business in the Kruse building, later
moving to the corner of West and Matheson. His death was caused by
inflammation of the brain and so swiftly did its work that a few hours
sufficed for its ravages. Leaving his place of business at 6:30p.m., his
death occurred that night. The funeral was held Monday afternoon under
the auspices of Healdsburg Lodge #123, F. & A.M., of which Mr. GIORGI
was a member. Healdsburg Lodge and Healdsburg Encampment I.O.O.F were

A marriage license was issued to Valton G. ROACH, 30, of Watsonville and

Mrs. Margaret A. NOWLIN, mother of the editor of this paper, for over 20
years a resident of Sonoma Co., 10 of which she had lived in Healdsburg,
died at her home on Piper St., Tuesday evening, Sept. 7th, at 5 o'clock.
She had been in poor health for about a year, but seriously ill only a
few weeks. Interment took place on Thursday morning, Sept. 9th, at
Shiloh Cemetery, Windsor, beside the grave of her husband, John NOWLIN,
who died 10 years ago. Miss Margaret BRAIL was born in N.Y., 87y 3m and
14d before she died. Of Dutch parentage, her ancestry may be traced
directly back to old Peter STUYVESANT, govenor of New Amsterdam, when in
the historic battle with the Duke of York that colony and city changed
from territory of Holland to territory of England and it's name was
changed to New York. Her girlhood days were spent in Michigan, where she
married John NOWLIN. They moved to Nebraska, thence to Kansas, living
there during what is known as "the grasshopper period," and in that time
of John BROWN'S raids and border wars. Then to Florida and from that
state to Ca. They lived in pioneer countries during pioneer days. In
three undeveloped states they established homes, planting them in the
wilderness and developing them to a state of plenty and of comfort. And
then, in the crimson and gold depths of a splendid sunset God dropped
for us a tear - and mother was gone. She had lived an active life, but
one of serene quietude, even beauty, until a little over two years ago,
when a son was unwarrantably and unjustly attacked and assasination of
his good character undertaken. Then for over a year, while self
appointed enemies struck, a few openly, some from hiding, she took his
troubles into her own heart, for the poison did not halt at the
threshold of her home, and it ate its way there through tearful days and
bitter nights, leaving the noble soul burdened with a grief she could
not control; and nighly since then terror held the dear old heart, and
tragedy lurked in feeble days. Grave illness came and with it delirium.
For hours she lived again the days of youth. Plucking flowers with her
mother, dead many years ago. Then came the fear of bitter days when
feeble memory brought belief that her dread was real and she was about
to be attacked by her son's caluminators. Loving and tender care availed
nothing. So deep had the fear of nght and days become imbedded in memory
that it would not down. Then came sleep, sweet as the hallowed sleep of
babe upon mothers' breast and this continued until the worn heart ceased
to function and God gave her rest as peacefull and as sweetly and as
holy as the calm beauty of a summer Sabbath eve. She is survived by 8
children, Mrs. Elizabeth WEST and Mrs. Artie GHEER of Kansas; Mrs. Dora
M. SMITH of Ala.; Albert E. NOWLIN of Florida; Mrs. Hattie ISAACS,
George H. NOWLIN, Ernest C. NOWLIN and Ande NOWLIN of Ca.

Mrs. Mary E. LORENZINI died suddenly Tuesday evening, while on her way
to attend a moving picture show. She was riding in an automobile with
her son and a party of friends when death came. She had been suffering
from chronic valvular heart trouble for some time. She was a noble lady,
a devoted mother and of the highest type of home-loving, home-making
woman. Mrs. LORENZINI had lived in Healdsburg for 32 years. She was born
in Switz. on Apr. 15, 1858. She leaves three children, Mrs. Ida MAGGENTI
and Miss Elvezia LORENZINI and Edward LORENZINI all of Healdsburg.
