Jonas William Aikin, the little son of Mr. and Mrs. Ollie Aikin, was born in Nuckolls County, Nebr., February 19, 1904, and died at home 5 miles north east of Nelson, Saturday, Sept. 22, at 4 a.m. age 2 years, 7 months and 3 days. Little William was only sick a few days and his death came suddenly, making the blow to parents and loved ones a hard one. It is a sad thing to be called upon to give up one of these beautiful buds that God has permitted to commernce developement (sic) in our homes and made O so hard when like little Willie, the one who has been so loving, so patient, so tender - and yet we are made the better because of having loved such a treasure. The funeral service was conducted from the Christian Church Sunday at 2 p.m. by the pastor. Sermon from I Cor 13:12: "Then Face to Face," pointing out that God will be with us in our sorrows, comforting the loved ones with the assurance of the scriptures saying they were all made richer and will be better by having little Willie in heaven to beacon them onward and upward. With the poet we say:

There is a Reaper whose name is Death,
And with his sickle keen
He reaps the bearded grain at a breath,
And the flowers that grow between.

And the mother gave, in tears and pain,
The flowers she most did love;
She knew she would see them all again
In the field of light above. -- Longfellow.

Interment in Nelson Cemetery.
