Duluth Young Man Dies Here

Richard Aldrich [Aldridge], son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Aldrich [Aldridge] of Duluth, died at the Walker hospital, immediately following an operation, Monday evening. Richard came here with his father a week ago for treatment. As the case seemed very serious, the doctors felt that an operation was just a chance for his life. Dr. Thabes came up Monday, and with Dr. Wilcox, the operation was performed by the father's wish. Richard was only 22 years of age, and his death is a great shock to his parents. Mrs. Aldridge, his mother, was wired at Duluth, and came on at once. The body was cared for at the Kinkele undertaking rooms and sent to Backus on Tuesday night's train, where funeral services were held on Wednesday. Richard farmed on what is known as the Aldridge farm, out from Backus. The sympathy of many friends goes out to the bereaved family.
