Huldah Johnson

Local Items.
A sad accident happened last Monday, in which a well-known Westchester girl lost her life. Miss Huldah Johnson and her sister, daughters of Nils Johnson, of Baillytown, were employed as servants of the Hinchliffs, father and son. Miss Huldah worked for the elder Hinchliff, and on the night in question, retired to her room, and turned off the gas. In doing this, she turned the valve enough to extinguish the light, but not enough to completely shut off the gas. The following morning, after repeated failures to awaken her by knocking on the door, her employers entered the room to find Huldah a corpse. The remains were shipped to this place yesterday, and the funeral will be held to-day from the Baillytown Swedish Lutheran church, Rev. Sandeen conducting the services. Her sudden death is a sad blow to the bereaved family. The deceased was about twenty years of age, bright, and a favorite among those who knew her.
