Esther Hobson. The sympthy of the whole community goes out to Mr, and Mrs Clinton Hobson in the death of their only child, Esther, which occurred Friday evening last at the family residence two miles southwest of town. The cause of the death was pneumonia. On Wednesday preceding, the child had slight symptoms of cold. On Thursday the symptoms were more pronounced, but no alarm was felt. Suddenly on Thursday night she grew seriously ill, and on Friday evening the little one passed away in her mother's arms while the father was gone to a neighbor's for assistance.
Esther Hobson was born July 12, 1904, and died February 1, 1907, aged 2 years, 6 months and 20 days. She was a child of unusual promise and attractiveness, a sweet spirited, bright minded, loving hearted [---] one. Although still so young she could repeat a great number of scriptural tests and sing verses of some of the simple gospel hymns. Her first text was, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God " This was made the text of the address at the service Monday afternoon. She could sing two verses of "Blessed assurance Jesus is mine." This hymn was also sung at the service. She seemed full of natural piety, and lived her brief years as God's own little angel is an earthly home. "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord."

The funeral was to have taken place Monday afternoon, and friends gathered to perform the solemn service. Mrs. Hobson's mother was expected on the morning train from Oai? ; then on the afternoon train, but through some failure in the train connections did not arrive. The religions service was held at the appointed time, but the burial was delayed so that the grandmother might see the mortal remains of the little one which she loved in life, though she had never seen her. The interment will likely take place this afternoon. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Feb 5, 1907
