Died of Diphtheriatic Croup.
Leona, the oldest daughter of C. H. Becker and wife died Sunday after a sharp attack of diphtheriatic croup, aged nearly five years. The remains of the beautiful little sufferer were followed to the cemetery by quite a number of friends who sympathize with the young parents in their affliction. Owing to the nature of the disease, it was not possible to hold a public funeral ceremony and the friends were obliged to stand aloof from the flower decked grave where the burial service was read.
