MERL ADAMS DIED
Merl Adams, the 19 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Adams of near Cullison died suddenly early Thursday morning of heart trouble.
Young Adams had been ill for some time and had consulted a specialist at Wichita not long ago. He was not considered in a serious condition however and his death was a heavy shock to his parents and his many friends. He was a young man, but well known in his community and was industrious and kind to all. He will be sadly missed from his place in life.-- January, 1924, Pratt Tribune.

He took, He will restore,
A precious one from us has gone,
He doeth all things well:
A voice we loved is still.
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled
The boon His love had given!
And though the body slumbers now.
The soul is safe in Heaven."
