Our kid nine came home from the Hoi

to feel pretty good considering the fact

news ever reached her. Little Lois died
the same evening of the accident and was
buried the Friday following. The entire

hotel Sunday morning, July 5th, at a
o'clock. Mr. Popp was taken very ill Fri
day evening, at the close of a day's work
building fence, He was in too great pain
to be taken to his own home some distance
away so was taken to Mr. Ashbrook's,
which was nearer, by his wife who was
with him, A phone message was sent for
Dr. Willis who reached the bedside of the
sick man about 9 o'clock. Upon examina
tion of the patient he found a case of ap
pendicitis in a very advanced stage and
gave no hope of his recovery, but advised
the removal of the man to town where
other physicians were also summoned.
It was decided to operate as a last chance,
but ere arrangements were completed and
the arrival of Dr. Dellwood of Alliance
who was summoned, the spirit took its
flight and the suffering was ended. Henry
Popp was 34 years old and leaves a wife
to whom he was married twelve years ago.
They came here two years ago from Dlue
Hill, Nebr., and settled on a homestead
near Ashbrook P. O. Two brothers. John
and William Popp, live in the same neigh
borhood. He was highly respected by
those of his neighbors who knew him best
and much sorrow was manifested at his
sudden death. The remains were shipped
to Dlue Hill Monday.
