Adam Medill Died at Early Hour Today

The many friends of Adam Medill were grieved to learn of his death which occurred at the home of his parents this morning at 3 o'clock. The young man was struck by lightning several months ago, from which he suffered for a long time. After his recovery he went to Denver where he was attending a business college when he was suddenly stricken. It was thought he had scarlet fever but in all probability the illness was caused from the shock of his accident. At this time his life was despaired of but he slowly improved, and Mr. and Mrs. Matt Medill, his parents, and his wife brought him home to Rock Springs where he recuperated.

Two weeks ago last Saturday he returned again to Denver to continue his studies but was again taken ill and his father went to Denver and brought him home the following Friday. He continued to grow weaker until death came this morning, from heart trouble.

Funeral arrangements had not been completed as we go to press, the family waiting for replies to telegrams to relatives before making definite plans.

Deceased was a Rock Springs boy, receiving his education here and graduating from the Rock Springs High School, and was 22 years of age at the time of his death. He was married to Miss L. Berquist about three years ago, and his wife and a little son two years old survive him. Besides his widow and son, left to mourn his untimely death are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Medill, sister, Miss Kate, and one brother. The many friends of the bereaved relatives offer sincere sympathy.
