The rest of the children, Elmer, Maurice and Johnny, have had the dread disease. Elmer and Maurice are all right again, but little Johnny was quite sick yet when the news was received, but the doctor said that he was on the road to recovery and would be all right again If ho did not take cold. Tho disease was contracted on the train. A lady with a sick child got on the train at McGregor, and it is supposed the child had scarlet fever. Mrs. Kelley and children departed for their new homo four weeks ago last Monday evening. This is certainly a sad beginning in their new home. Mrs. Kelley is a daughter of Mr. J. W. Curtis, of this place. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to them in their sad hour of trouble. IN MEMOBIAM. , •;. Little Howard-Curtis Kelley, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. M, Kelley, died Friday, March 23,1895, of scarlet fever, «t,the age of 1 year 7 months and 16 days.. He seemed to be getting along: all right until Friday morning, then the fever changed and,went to his brain; he was too weak to bear any more suffering and yielded up his little life Friday evening at ten o'clock. He was a very bright little fellow and hi death is a crushing blow to his parents and grand-parents. And we miss him, how we miss him in the dark or In the day; Miss his voice, our sweetest music; Miss the life yet in the dawn; . Miss the pattering of his footsteps In his happy baby play.
