RAY, the seven year old son of PROF. and MRS. GABLE, died yesterday evening at 4 o’clock, of diphtheria. He had been ill but a few days, and it was only last Sunday that it was thought necessary to summon medical aid. The indications of diphtheria were then slight, but on Monday the anti-toxine treatment was administered. This gave relief and was thought to have conquered the dread disease, but on Tuesday it renewed its attack on the little sufferer, who was no longer able to battle against it.
RAY was a bright, sunny dispositioned boy, whose manly ways and cheerful manner had endeared him to the hearts of many; he was just at the age when developing youth, like the opening bud shows life full of promise and usefulness. In the taking away of RAY, not only has the home of loving parents been robbed of its priceless treasure, but the community has sustained a loss that awakens every sympathy and feelings of deepest regrets.
The funeral was held from the family residence at 11 this morning.
