called to Murray in consultation with
Dr. J. F. Brendel of. that place in the
case of Mrs. Herman Richter, resid
ing west of Murray, and the patient
was found to be suffering greatly, and

save her life, as the condition of Mrs.
Richter was very critical. As soon as
possible after reaching the hospital a

He Had Been In Poor Health for Some
Time, and Was Unable to With
stand Attack of Pneumonia.
Yesterday J afternoon David L.
Amick, for the pasf sixty years a
resident of Cass county, was called to
his final reward after an illness cov
ering a week's time, suffering from
an attack of pneumonia. The death
of Mr. Amick will bring a feeling of
great regret to the many old friends
of the family in this city and vicinity,
where they have long made their
home, and in their hour of sorrow the
widow and son will receive the deep
est sympathy of the entire commun
ity. For the past few years Mr.
Amick had not been in the best of
health as he suffered a breakdown in
his robust health about three years
ago, from which he had never fully
recovered, and during his stay in
Arkansas a little over a year ago
suffered very much from his health,
due to the climatic conditions there,
and in his weakened state of health
was unable to withstand the attack
David L. Amick was born April 24,
1856, on a farm in Des Moines county,
Iowa, twelve miles west of Burling
ton, and when but an infant of a few
months was brought to Nebraska by
his parents. George D. Amick and
wife. The family settled on a farm
in Cass county and since the fall of
1850 made their home in this county.
The parents passed away several
years ago and after their death Mr.
Amick continued the management of
their farm, two miles east of old
Eight Mile Grove. In 1S80 Mr. Amick
was united in marriage to Miss Ruth
Hickman, whose parents had been old
friends of the Amick family and came
west with them, locating on the Iowa
side of the Missouri river, where they
made their home on a farm. After
the marriage Mr. and Mrs. Amick re
turned to Cass county and continued
to reside on the farm until a few
years ago, when they moved to Platts
mouth to make their home, and for a
short time Mr. Amick served as chief
of police of the city, resigning to look
after his farming interests. Later
they spent about a year in Arkansas
with their son, Theodore, near Monti
cello, returning to Plattsmouth about
a year and a half ago. and three
months ago came to Plattsmouth,
where Mr. Amick and son had since
operated the Smith garage on Vine
To mourn his loss Mr. Amick leaves
the widow and one son, Theodore
Amick, both of whom reside in this
city; one brother, John P. Amick, of
near Weeping Water; two half
brothers, Judge M. Archer of this city
and Charles Archer of Lincoln.
The funeral services will be held
tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock at
Eight Mile Grove, and will be under
the auspices of Plattsmouth lodge No
739, Benevolent and Protective Order
of Elks. The funeral will leave thi
city at 1 o'clock and the burial wil
be held at the Eight Mile Grove ceme
tery in the family lot.
MRS. ANNA RICHTER
PASSED AWAY LAST
NIGHT AT HOSPITAL
Mrs. Anna Richter of near Murray
who underwent a Caesarean operation
at the St. Joseph hospital in Omaha
Tuesday night, passed away last eve
ning at eleven o'clock, after a brave
fight for life to care for the three
little sons who were born to her and
for 'whom she had laid down her life,
The serious condition of Mrs. Richter
on reaching the hospital early Wed
nesday morning after being brought
by an auto from her home at Mur
ray made the operation necessary at
once, as she was suffering from con
vulsions. This is the first time in
the' history 'of Omaha surgery, where
such an operation was performed that
tripletts were born. The children are
reported as doing as well as could be
expected under the circumstances
Mrs. Richter had no time to be pre
pared for the operation on reaching
the hospital, but cheerfully submitted
to the ordeal insisting that she was
ready and willing to withstand it
Dr. C. C. Allison and Dr. A. L. Der-
mmody performed the operation.
Mrs. Richter was twenty-three years
of age and was married at Carrollton,
Mo., to Herman Richter two years
ago, and they have made their home
on the farm west of Murray a greater
part of the time since their marriage.
Her husband and mother, Mrs. Emma
Walker were at her bedside at the
time she passed away.
