Mrs. Harry Klemme
Killed in San Francisco.
HONOLULU, August 10. Harry
Klemme received a cablegram this
morning conveying the distressing
news that his wife was killed in an
accident in San Francisco yesterday.
There is no further news excepting
that Harry, the seventeen-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. Klemme, was
safe from which' it is surmised that

Mrs. Kleninie's death occurred on
her husband's forty-third birthday.
She was born in New York and was
thirty-seven years of ago. Fur many
years she was a resident of Hqno
lulu. She leaves one son, Harry

is overcome with grief at the sudden
