The sad tidings comes to us of the death at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Larson, in Marion twp., Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock, after a short illness with pneumonia, Mrs. J. S. Quam. Her baby, Curtis Blaine, born Aug. 7th, 1909, followed her in death three hours after.

Miss Sophia Peterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert L. Peterson, of St. Olaf, was born April 15th, 1884, in Marion twp. In August, 1906, at Minot, N.D., she married Mr. J. S. Quam, and with her husband located on a farm near Sawyer, N.D.

The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon from the home of M. C. Larson about 2:00 o'clock. Services to be held at the Norway church. Mrs. Quam will be remembered by many friends in Elkader and all express their sympathy for the beloved family.
