| || Notes for WILLIAM B. BENTLEY:|
Littie Willie Bentleys Short Career.
There is profound sorrow in the household of Thomas W. Bentley, the silk manufacturer, at 21 Huron street, over the death of little Willie, his precocious six-year-old son, who died yesterday from congestion of the brain.
Willie was a remarkably bright child, admired by everybody and a great favorite with his teacher at school. On Friday he left school as well as ever and was having a good time when he returned home, enjoying his few hours of liberty as only a boy can. In some inexplicable way he fell down stairs while playing and fractured his skull. Medical assistance was summoned, but the flower of the household was destined to bloom no longer, and yesterday afternoon the little fellow's brief career ended in a peaceful manner, his death almost unnoticed by those who were watching over him. He will be buried tomorrow at Cedar Lawn.
