MISS Florence Brehm Suffered an Attack of Hemorrhage of the Lungs on Wednesday Evening and Passes Away the Following Day.

This community was shocked yesterday by the announcement of the death of Miss Floorence Brehm, daughter of Mr. and MRs. John Brehm, of Hungerford township, after an illness of only a few hours. Miss Brehm and a number of other high school girls were at the school house Wednesday evening practicing for the pageant to be given May 30th, and later went to the picture show. On the way home from the show Miss BRehm was suddenly taken ill with hemorrhage of the lungs and had to be assisted to the home of R. E. Turnipseed, where she boarded. Physicians were at once summoned and she was given every attention, but her condition grew steadily worse and she passed away shortly after 1 o'clock Thursday afternoon.

The family were notified of her illness Wednesday night and were all at her beside during the morning except a sister, Mrs. J. O. Osmundeon, of Sioux Rapids, who did not reach Le Mars until later in the afternoon.

Miss Florence was born January 14, 1898, on the farm in Hungerford where her parents still reside. She was a bright and ambitious girl, and for the past two years, had been a student, in the Le Mars high school. In the home neighborhood and in Le Mars her sweet and unassuming manner mad her many warm friends who share with the father, mother, three sisters and three brothers the sorrow they feel in the loss of this loved one.

The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon, services being held at 1:30 o'clock at the BRehm home and at 2 o'clock at Melbourne church, of which deceased was a member.
