Cawker City Free Press
- DIED--In this city, Saturday, April 29, 1882,
at 10 o'clock A. M. at the Whitney House,
Addie, infant child of Arthur and Lizzie
Whitney, aged four years and two months.
The funeral services were held at the Whit-
ney House at half after two Sunday after-
noon; Rev. J. Baay officiating. The cere-
mony was attended by a very large concourse
of our citizens; in fact, all Cawker being
represented and the string of carriages that
followed to the grave, where the last sad
rites were performed, attested to the strength
of the bond of sympathy extended to the
bereaved family be their hundreds of friends.
Little Addie, a golden haired little fairy,
beloved by all, represented the fourth gen-
eration, then living, of the Whitney family,
and not only the father and mother are left
to mourn the loss of an only child, but the
grand- and great-grandparents, too, are losers
by what is Heaven's gain. That was a dark
day for them all, for the sunshine of the
household's idol was overshadowed for
ever. The deep grief of these parents had
touched the tenderest chord of sympathy in
the bosom of all, and THE FREE PRESS
among the rest, wishes to offer what poor
consolation may be in its power; but 'tis on
such heart-rendering occasions as this wherein
speech is silver, and silence gold.
