Sad Death of Little One

Lincoln John Horien, the
eighteen month old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Leo J. Horien, was in-
jured fatally late Tuesday after-
noon when he stumbled and fell
on a long spouted oil can while
playing in the house. He was
rushed at once to the St. Luke’s
hospital at Thief River Falls,
where an operation was perform-
ed with the hopes of saving the
little fellow’s life, but it was
found that the spout of the oil
can had deeply penetrated the
brain above the right eye, and
very little could be done to pro-
long his life.

He passed away that same
evening at 12 o’clock. The date
of his birth was Feb. 12, 1931.

The funeral was held here
yesterday after noon from the
Nazareth Lutheran church at
one o’clock p.m., Rev. Redal
officiating. Interment was made
in the village cemetery.

The sympathy of the entire
community goes out to the be-
reaved parents in their hour of
sorrow.
