FIRST OF QUINTUPLETS TAKEN IN DEATH

Death broke the rank of the famous Dionne quintuplets when Emilie Dionne died at a Roman Catholic hospital near Ste. Agathe, Quebec, Aug. 6.

Reports concerning her death revealed that she had been the frailest of the five sisters and in poor health since she was three. She had been a victim of polio 17 years ago and since was afflicted with fainting spells.

Burial was made in a small Catholic cemetery at Corbeil, Ont.
