Palmer Arthur was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter P. Dock and was the oldest of a family of five children. He was born at Lyle, Minn., Jan. 27th, 1890. Here he lived for eight years, until his parents moved to Hawley to reside.

About two years ago, he was troubled with his heart for a short time but was soon as well as usual. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and also of the Luther League, and it was at a meeting of the latter that he passed away Sunday evening, about seven o'clock after having spent the day apparently in the best of health. He had gone to the church in company with his brother and as he entered stopped to speak to some friends, when he sank to the floor a lifeless corpse.

He leaves besides his parents, one brother and three sisters to mourn his sudden demise. Besides the family, who accompanied the remains here for burial, were Theo. Dock of Thief River Falls, Knut Dock and Ben Benson of Blooming Prairie.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of all in their hour of sorrow.
