Miss Pauline Pfund Succumbed to Ravages of White Plague—Was on Way to Ada, Minn.

The remains of the late Miss Pauline Pfund, who died at one of the local hospitals on Sunday evening, will be taken to her home in Ada, Minn., this evening. The deceased, aged 39 years, had been living on a claim near Dutton, Mont., for the past three years, where she had gone in the hopes that a change of climate and conditions would lead to her recovery from tuberculosis.

She was taken seriously ill a short time ago and her brother and sister went to her home and were taken {sp} her to Ada, Minn. They brought her as far as Grand Forks and were compelled to change cars here. While waiting for the train, the victim of the white plague was taken violently ill and was removed to the hospital. Her sister, Mrs. C. R. Ahlers, and her cousin, Louis Pfund, arrived in the city today and took charge of the remains.
