The illness of Robert was of a
week's duration and was serious
•Imo*? from the beginning Tna
funeral aervices were conducted
bv Rev. C. M. Rowell atthei ca-
dence of the child'® parents Fri-
day 10 a. m.
Notices announcing the funer-
al at the home were distributed
and in response to the announce-
ment every business ho ho \v:\'°
closed from ten until eleve.i
the morning. The rooms of the
home would not contain a» n in
as came to respect the parents
of the child; for the young
Father and Mother are dear to
the community. Rev. Powell read
an appropriate lesson from the
New Testament, then addressed
the parents and friends upon the
Ministry of Child-life. With
simplicity and ease he pictured
in realistic word—colors the
character of a child. He de-
clared the ch Id to be our only
object -lesson of Heaven; we do
not know what Heaven will con-
tain except that children will bt;
sesn among the purities of that
sinless realm. His words were
comforting and found their wav
into the hearts of those who
heard him speak. After the
pa^toritil address tin wreith of
flowers was removed from the
casket and the parents and
friends looked upon the form of
the little one for ths last time.
As we who passed the cas'cet be-
held the quiet, innocent, heaven-
ly expression of the sleeping in-
fant we sang in our souls that
song of comfort—"Asleep in
Jesus". When upon earth, "He
took them up in his arms, P: t
his hands upon then. and bless-
ed th;m; and said. "Suffer li-tie
children to come unto me and
forbid tha n not, for of such is
the kingdom of heaven." The
remains were laid to re3t in the
city cemetery south of town.
The bereaved parents have
