SPIRIT OF HOMER AUSTILL
SEEKS REST IN ETERNITY.
DEATH OCCURRED AT THE FAMILY
RESIDENCE SUNDAY MORNING.
At the home of his mother, at 19th
and South A streets, Homer Fremont,
son of William H. and Sarah C. Austill,
died at 11:15 o'clock yesterday morning
after a brief illness with Brigjt's dis-
ease. He had been in ill health nearly
all winter, but up until last Thursday
was able to be up and about town.
Thursday evening he was taken to his
bed and sank swiftly and steadity to the
Homer was born on June 22, 1880, at
the old Austill homestead on East Main,
near what is now 20th street, and at the
time of his death lacked but a few
months of being twenty years of age. A
cripple from childhood but few persons
were better known than he and likely
no young man could lay claim to a larger
circle of friend. Just as man-
hood was approaching, just as he was
about to enter upon his life's work, he
was called from earth. Truly may it be
said that death loves a shining mark.
Funeral services will be held at the
Christian church Tuesday afternoon at
2 o'clock, with Rev. C. W. Evans of the
M. P. church, officiating. The remains
will be laid to rest in the city cemetery.
