DEATH OF HENRY SMITH.
Henry Smith, the 18-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Smith living four miles southwest of town, breathed his last on earth Tuesday morning at 10:30 o'clock, after an illness of about ten days of tiphoid [sic] fever. In life, Henry was an examplary [sic] young man, a kind and considerate friend and a favorite with his many young friends and companions who deeply feel the pangs of sorrow at his sudden demise. He leaves father, mother, two brothers and two sisters, and a large number of friends and relatives (with whom the writer is listed) to mourn his death. During sickness, he was perfectly rational to the last and divided his earthly possessions among the members of the family. He calmly bid the family and friends goodbye and closed his eyes in death as peacefully as in going to sleep. The family have the sympathy of all in this, their time of sad affliction. The funeral services were held at the Harper school house yesterday, Wednesday, and a large concourse of sympathizing friends followed the remains to their last resting in the Willoughby cemetery.
