Carrollton Chronicle
October 7, 1904


A particularly sad and inopportune death occurred near the city this week. It is peculiarly lachrymose on account of the victim's tender years, and of his popularity with the entire community.

For a protracted period, the deceased, Ike Kern, son of C. Kern, who has a farm three miles west, suffered from a complication of typhoid fever and appendicitis though he possessed a rugged constitution, the ravages of the fever left him too week to withstand the fortitudes of an operation.

He lay helpless as loved ones constantly watched the diminishing life spark flitter out.

Of but some 16 years, the lad had a bright and promising future, being popular and highly respected.

Religiously inclined, honest to a fault, with a deep conception of integrity and manliness, his death, though anticipated, comes as a great fortitude to those who knew him.

Everything medical science could do was done, but to no avail, and it was a sweet relief from his sufferings when he closed his eyes in that sleep that knows no morning. His soul passed to Jesus Wednesday eve.

His remains will be interred at this place Thursday morning, funeral services being held at the Union Church.

The Chronicle extends condolences to the bereaved family and offers them the sweet consolation that He who marks the tiny sparrow's fall has his spirit with him.

Death is but the Christly summons; "Little children come to me; Mourn not, weep not, earthly loved ones-Live that ye may Jesus see."
