Andrew Olson was called by death last Sunday [October 7, 1917]morning at the City Hospital. He had been taken to the City Hospital for an operation, having been sick only a short time.

For twenty-five years he had been section foreman and was a man that could be trusted with the responsibility of his position. He was always working for his employers interests and was respected by all who knew him for his upright life.

The services at the house are at one o’clock and the services at the Norwegian Lutheran church are at 1:30 p.m. The family have the sympathy of the entire community in this hour of bereavement.
