  • Yorkville, Wis. - May 21 - Little Gordon Harry Fritchen, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Fritchen, died 10 minutes to 1 on Sunday night of scarlet fever and pneumonia. Little Gordon was sick only one week. Everything was done that possibly could be done for him but death ended his suffering. He was a handsome and bright little boy and the pride of his home. Before he got so bad he sang in his childish way the few words, "There is smiles that made us happy" that put a different feeling in his loved ones that were doing all they could for him. Rev. Collins of Somers preached a very nice sermon, while Mrs. Collins sang "The Vacant Chair" and "Sweet Peace the Gift of God's Love." Little Gordon was buried in Yorville cemetery. Sympathy is extended to the bereaved parents.

Hayes, Peter "Pat"
  • The funeral of Peter Hayes, of Tornado, took place last Thursday, the remains being interred in the cemetery near Maplewood. By the death of Mr. Hayes a wife and family of eleven children are left in helpless and entirely destitute circumstances. The deceased was a hard-working and industrious man, and the immediate cause of his death was produced by overwork. The town authorities of Brussels were called upon to afford relief, but this has been dealt out so sparingly that at the time of Mr. Hayes's death the household was in condition bordering on starvation, and only for the kind offices of the neighbors the family would have had to suffer the pangs of hunger in this land of plenty. To still add to the misery of the family, the poor widow is about to again become a mother, which renders this one of the most deplorable cases that can well be imagined.
