MOTHER OF TWINS SUCCUMBS IN CITY HOSPITAL

One of the saddest deaths that has occurred in this vicinity for some time occurred yesterday (August 12, 1912) afternoon at the city hospital, when Mrs. Audrey Smith passed away, leaving twins three weeks old to the tender care of the husband.

Immediately after the birth of the twins Mrs. Smith developed a tumor, which, under ordinary circumstances, would have been adjusted with a minor operation that her present condition would not admit of being undertaken, as it was impossible to administer an opiate.

Mrs. Smith was well known. She had lived on Fifth street, diagonally across from the hospital for a considerable period. The twins are thriving despite of the loss of their mother. Funeral arrangements had not been completed at a late hour last evening.
