- Katherine, the bright little two and a half year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. R. Blakemore, of Chicago, died at their home on Tuesday night with diphtheria. Mr. Blakemore arrived with the remains of the sweet little child yesterday morning, and the funeral procession proceeded from the 11 o'clock train to the Paris cemetery for burial.

Services were held at the grave by Rev. Dr. E. H. Rutherford.

Mrs. Blakemore, nee Miss Mamie Neely, of this city, has the sympathy of many friends in the loss of her bright and interesting little daughter, who but recently was here on a visit with her mother and who had won the hearts of every one she came in contact with. Mrs. Blakemore was unable to accompany the remains, and her sister, Mrs. John A. Lyle, who was visiting her, remained in Chicago with her.
