Minnie Langholff
   Mrs Carl Langholff was called to the eternal rest early Wednesday morning, May 21st, after an illness of about four months.
   The deceased was taken ill last February and althouth suffering considerable pain, her condition, for a time, was encouraging. But later she grew worse and it developed that she was suffering from tuberculosis of the throat. Everything that medical science, devoted nursing and tendered care could devise were given in an attempt to stay the dread disease, but to no avail. During the last few weeks she suffered untold agony. But she faced the inevitable with true Christian fortitude and sought to comfort her beloved ones when the hour of parting drew near.
   Some weeks ago the Langholff home had been closed by the illness of the little son, and the mother, to be fteed from the worry and to insure every comfort, was taken to the home of Albert Mumm, Sr., while the devoted father remained at home to aid in nursing the little one back to health. As a last request Mrs Langholff asked that she be taken home and here the end came peacefully Wednesday morning.
