Mrs. Sol Rathburn, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Peter Favors, died at the home of her parents in St. Paul,
Thursday, April 19. She was twenty-one years of age. The death is a
sad one indeed. The young woman, highly respected and the possessor of a
hose of friends, was also the mother of a baby daughter only a few hours
old. This child is now left in entire ignorance of the love its mother was
so anxious to lavish upon it.
