Viola Hanson

Viola, the little four year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Peter Hanson of this place was taken sick last week with acute osteomyelitis, an infection of the bones of the leg. Dr. Staley was called Sunday, and in consultation with Dr. Bartron of Watertown it was decided Tuesday to remove the little sufferer to the hospital for operation which was performed Wednesday, but the disease had progressed to the point where she failed to rally and death resulted a few hours after the operation.
