Two Children of the Henry Milburns Die

The second time within the month death struck in the Henry Milburn home, with the death of their 11-year-old son, Richard, who passed away Monday, October 28.

The family left Lusk last summer and moved to Hubbard, Oregon, where two of their children were taken seriously ill the latter part of September. Their 5-year-old daughter, Elvira, died on October 3, from polio and the boy passed away a little more than three weeks later.

He had been a patient in a hospital at that place for about four weeks, having undergone an operation for ruptured appendix and a bowel obstruction.

Richard, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Milburn, was born in Lusk, where he attended grade school. His teachers speak of him as a very loveable child.

Besides his parents the boy is survived by a sister, Rosabelle, and two brothers, Stanley and Elvin, all of Hubbard, Ore., and his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Knittle and Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Milburn of Lusk.

Funeral services will be held in Hubbard today (Thursday) and he will be laid beside his little sister.
