Miss Alena Johnson of Moe township passed away at St. Luke's hospital Sunday, August 1st, from burns received the preceding Tuesday. Her mother, Mrs. Matt Johnson poured kerosene on live coals to hurry the fire. The kerosene exploded and Miss Johnson rushed to her mother's aid and was so badly burned that death resulted as above stated.

Alena Johnson was born in Minnesota April 18th, 1898 and was twenty-eight years, three months and twelve days of age at the time of her death. She was a graduate nurse from the Illinois post-graduate training school and practiced her profession for about four years. One year ago she started a beauty parlor at Oak Park, Illinois and had been visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Johnson in the town of Moe for about a week when the accident happened, which ended her life.

Besides the bereaved parents she is survived by five brothers, Emil, William and Isaac at home, Edward at Upsala and Francis in Chicago, four sisters, Mrs. Josephine Haabala of Moe township, Mrs. Alma Helin of Holmes City and Mamie and Helen at home.
