SAMUEL L. ROGERS IS SUMMONED BY DEATH
Samuel L. Rogers, a well-known attorney of San Francisco, died this morning at his home on Vermont avenue, Fruitvale, in the seventy-third year of his age.
The deceased had been suffering from typhoid fever for some time. He fancied that he was not dangerously ill and, accordingly, refused to send for or be treated by a physician. This morning, however, a physician was sent for and Dr. Callen responded. The disease, however, had gained a hold upon the patient, which could not be loosened. The deceased was a man of ability and respected by his acquaintances.
