For several years Mrs. Kivett has been a sufferer from heart trouble and has several times seemed almost at death's door, but she would rally again and apparently be improving when she would again be seized with a return attack of this most treacherous disease. Lately symptoms of dropsy began to make its appearance and on the advice of her physician, Dr. Nelson, she went to Topeka a couple of weeks ago for treatment at Christ's Hospital. She received no benefit from the hospital treatment and so notified her father, who immediately went to Topeka and finding that her death was only a question of a few days, brought her home Tuesday night that she might spend her last few hours among her friends at home. She lingered until Wednesday morning when she quietly breathed her last.
