Two Died In Same Family
Albert Thompson of Strool, S.D., father of the two so suddenly summoned from this life, left here Monday for his South Dakota home leaving Mrs. Thompson with their daughter, who had shown encouraging improvement from a critical condition. Arriving at Strool he found a telegram awaiting him with the news that his son, Orvis Adolph Thompson, aged 18, died March 5 of suppurative pleurisy at the naval station in San Francisco. He left immediately upon the return trip to New England. Yesterday he telephoned from Hettinger an inquiry as to the condition of his daughter, to learn that she had passed away several hours before.
