A Sad Death
The little babe of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Mahlum died Tuesday [May 5, 1896] evening at about 7 o’clock from an obstruction in the larynx. The little one was playing about the yard and was suddenly taken with a fit of choking. A doctor was immediately called, but arrived too late to render any assistance. A post mortem examination showed that death had resulted from the lodgement of a bean in the windpipe. The little one was but 20 months old, the only child and the idol of its young parents. The grief of its sudden taking away has almost prostrated them. Many friends extend sincerest sympathy in this dark hour. (Emmet County Republican, Estherville, IA, May 7, 1896)
