Theodore Plassman. Late Editor of the "Leader" Died of Congestion of the Lungs
Great Falls, Sept. 12--At an early hour this morning Theodore Plassman was found lying in his bed in an unconscious condition, and before a hastily summoned physician could arrive at the house he passed into death. He had been ill for several days, but his condition was not regarded as critical or even serious and Dr. Frezzel attributes his sudden demise to congestion of the lungs.
Mr. Plassman came from an aristocratic family in Germany, and at an early age went to England and subsequently to Scotland, where he was educated. He came to the United States 12 years ago and entering the signal service of the army, was sent to Montana, where he has resided for 6 years. At one time he invested considerable money in cattle, but the venture proved unsuccessful and he lost is all. Three years ago he entered the service of the late Herbert P. Rolfe, and after the latter's death became business manager of the Leader, a position he held until July last, when the newspaper was sold to F.N. Fletcher. In October last Mr. Plassman was married to Mrs. Herbert P. Rolfe, who then occupied the position of editor of the Leader, and he has since resided with the family at their residence in the Rolfe addition. Mr. Plassman was a kind and generous man and had many friends who regret his death. He was a member of several secret societies and carried a $3,000 policy in the lodge of Maccabees.
