Well Known Topeka Woman Dies Suddenly in Kansas City

   Hattie Throop Doolittle, wife of Irving W. Doolittle, clerk of the Midland hotel of Kansas City and formerly of the Throop hotel of this city, died very suddenly of peritonitis Saturday afternoon at the hotel. She had been in ill health ever since going to Kansas City, about five weeks ago, but her condition was not considered serious even to the time of her death.

She was born in Topeka in 1867, and would have been 34 years old in May. She was married in Washington in 1886, and lived in Topeka, where her husband was the manager of the Throop hotel for 15 years.
