Died at Hot Springs

The whole community was plunged in sorrow when tidings were received yesterday morning that Chas. M. Thomas had passed away, following an operation for appendicitis. He and Mrs. Thomas had gone to Hot Springs, S D., last week and as his case was diagnosed as serious it was decided that an operation would be necessary. Accordingly, on Monday he was operated on and passed through the ordeal safely and Mrs. Thomas wired to Lusk Tuesday that everything seemed to be all right, but a change for the worse took place during the night and he passed away at 5 o'clock yesterday morning.

Chas. M. Thomas was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Thomas, Sr., who live 15 miles north of Harrison, Nebr. He was married to Mary Turner of Boston, Mass., and three children were born to them, Albert, Addie and Robert. Besides his widow and three children, and his father and mother, three brothers and one sister survive his untimely loss, namely Ira Thomas of Lance Creek, Sam Thomas, Jr. of Indian Creek, Henry Thomas, who lives at home with his parents, and Mrs. Tracy Lewis of Indian Creek.

About 8 years ago Charlie Thomas, as he was affectionately called by his host of friends, bought the Harry Rogers Ranch, about 22 miles northeast of Lusk, and known as Plum Creek. From here he moved with his family to Lusk last September, at first occupying the Edwin Hall residence, and later purchasing the Dr. Stephenson bungalow on Main street where the family make their home.

The remains arrived in Lusk today on the westbound passenger train, as also Mrs. Thomas and other relatives. The funeral will be held from his late home, interment being in Lusk cemetery. The local Masons will have charge of all arrangements, Mr. Thomas having just recently become a member of Harmony Lodge.

The death of Mr. Thomas is a decided loss to the community and to his family it is irreparable. The HERALD joins with all sorrowing friends in tendering sincerest sympathy to the distressed relatives in their sad bereavement.
