Herman J. Berke Dead


    Herman J. Berke died Tuesday morning of heart trouble.  He was up town on the street the day before and was talking of reviving his mill interests here.  His death was unexpected and was quite a surprise to the community.

  He was a miller by trade and understood the milling business thoroughly.  He built a large flour mill in Montrose and operated it until the grain became scarce here.

  He leaves his wife and a family of six children to mourn his loss.  He was a man of considerable enterprise.  He erected a large building in Montrose which was used as an opera house until the war came an and then it was sold to Oscar Hegre for a garage.

  Mr. Berke was a man of decided opinions and withal, had many friends.  He will be missed in business circles and the usual sympathy is extended.  He was about 65 years of age.
