Mrs. Mohatt arrived Saturday, expecting to spend some time here

She was feeling unusually well Monday and she and her father had planned
on driving over to Yuma to see an old friend of Mrs. Mohatt, who was going to
accompany them home and spend a few days with them at Otis. After dinner she
told her father that she felt well, but was sleepy. He told her there
was no hurry about the trip and for her to go and lie down for awhile;
this she did and got up after awhile and said she had a fine nap
an was feeling good. She then went to an outhouse and her
father after waiting a short time he becam uneasy and told Mrs. A. J. Loy
that he wished she would go and look for her. Mrs. Loy went immediately
and found her crumpled up on the floor. A doctor was summuoned, but upon

It's a sad ending of an anticipated happy visit, but

a mattcr of time until the Grim Destroyer visits our homes and
takes away those whom we hold most dear. — Otis Independent."
