MEETS DEATH
BY DROWNING
Monday evening the town was greatly
excited when it was made known
that the little six year old Darrell Luce
was missing. He had come into the
house with his sled and his mother,
Mrs. George McCann, asked him to
take it out to a shed, and when it began
to get dark and he had not come
into the house search was made for
him and it was in the river where his
little body was found. The river was
frozen over and indication's were that
he had laid down on his sled and given
it a push with his foot out onto the
thin ice about five feet where he broke
through, into four feet of water.
Coroner Smittle at Waucoma was notified
but he decided that an inquest was not
necessary. The little corpse was taken
to Albert J Buenneke's undertaking
parlors where it was prepared for burial
and the last services were held
Wednesday afternoon at the Methodist
church.
Darrell Kenneth Luce was born. Au-
gust 7, 1913, at Waterloo, Iowa, and
met his death November 17, 1919, aged
6 years and 3 months. ..
Darrell was of a quiet, lovable nature
and will be greatly missed in the
home as well, as in the school and
from his class in the Methodist Sunday
school.
The sorrowing relatives have the
sympathy of the whole community.
