Miss Young who is a freshman in the Darlington HS was taken with a hemorrhage of the lungs following a fit of coughing yesterday and her death followed in a few minutes after the attack. The deceased has been in poor health ever since an attack of spinal meningitis about 3 years ago which left her afflicted with curvature of the spine. She has been able to attend school, however, although her lungs have always been weak. She was feeling bad all the last week and has not attended school since last Friday. No one thought her seriously ill however and the news of her death came as a great shock to her friends and schoolmates here. Pearl Young has always lived in the vicinity of Darlington and has gone to school here. She has many friends both in town and in the vicinity to whom the report of her sudden death will be a very sad news. Besides her mother and father she leaves one married brother Ralph and one sister, Fern. No funeral arrangements have yet been made. - transcribed by kbz

Pearl Orinda, youngest child and daughter of Albert A. and Almira M. Young, was born near Beckville, Indiana Oct 27, 1897a nd departed this life April 18, 1916 age 18 years, six months and one day. At an early age she with her parents, brother and sister moved to their present home and from it Pearl by her natural disposition has done a daughter's full share in helping to radiate kindness, cheerfulness and hospitality. Her sunny, kind and cheerful disposition have won for her a host of friends among neighbors, schoolmates, associates and teachers. All have admired the splendid courage with which she has borne her affliction the past few years. Anxious to procure and education she, despite handicap of health entered the freshman class of Darlington HS last fall and by her untiring efforts won the praise and admiration of her teachers and classmates. She united with the Gravelly Run Friends Church in November 1915 and will be sorely missed by those with whom she was associated by reason of her church membership. All that loving hands could do to restore her health has been done but the will of the Heavenly Father cannot be overruled. Since it is His will to have taken Pearl away from our midst, it is from Him only that strength to hear the present sorrow can be received. To the father, mother, sister and brother, then we can only say that He who has seen fit to take their dear one will supply their every need. The funeral was conducated at the home on Thursday morning at 10:30 o'clock and was attended by a large concourse of people. Rev. Lindley Reagan of Marshall, Ind former pastor of the Friends church,a ssisted by the present pastor, MIss Lydia Hoath, conducted the funeral. The pall bearers were Messrs.

The many beautiful offerings bore testimony of the place which the decease d held in the hearts and the minds of the people. - transcribed by kbz
