Knut Thompson died very suddenly at his home south of Mona Wednesday morning after a lingering illness of about seven years. While apparently no worse than he had been for some time he felt that the end was near. Tuesday he was able to be about the home and in the evening requested the family to sit up with him and asked to have a bed made for him downstairs. Several times during the night Mrs. Thompson asked him how he was getting along and he said that he was feeling pretty well. At 5 o'clock when she again called, his spirit had taken its flight.

The deceased was born in Norway October 20th, 1842 where he lived until the year 1880 when he with his family came to America and settled in this community. About 20 years ago he moved onto the farm where he passed away. For seven years he has been a patient sufferer with rheumatism from which there seemed to be no relief until death came. He leaves besides his wife one brother and one sister in the fatherland, two sons Oscar and Adolph of this community and three daughters, Mrs. Onstead of Superior, Wis., Miss Ella Thompson of Mecknick, N.D., and Miss Tillie Thompson also of Superior, Wis.

The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon from his late home at 1 and at the church in Mona at 2 o'clock. Rev. Moe will have charge of the services.
