Last Thursday occurred the death of little Kent Albert Day, aged two years, one month and fifteen days. His illness was of short duration, but severe. The best attention was given him, everything being done that the doctors and friends could do, but God had called him and all earthly means failed. The funeral was held in the Presbyterian Church at Alamo Saturday at 10 o’clock. The funeral sermon was delivered by the pastor of the Christian Church, R. L. Brown. It was a beautiful tribute to the dead, and comforting to the parents and friends. Interment was at the Indian Creek Cemetery.

Kent was a dear little soul to his fond parents and a pleasant playmate to his little brother. His toddling footsteps will be missed about the silent rooms and along the winding paths. Many a little word and innocent action will be recalled by the mother and father. At the table will sit his vacant chair and by the bright fireside at eventide will sit only one little child; one little boy talks to his mamma and papa by the fireside while the other beckons to them from heaven.
