son of Chief of Police and Mrs. W. H1.
Bagwel) died at his parents' hoie
-Saturday night after a short illness
of inflamatory rheumatism. The child
had been in a precarious condition for
several days, so his death, while a
great shock to his relatives and young

ducted by Rev. M. I,. Lawson, Pastor
of the Baptist chitch. Ills classimat es
of the sixth grade in the city graded
school acted as honorary pall bear
ers and the mayor and other city of
ficials acted as active pall bearers:
That the child was 'an unusually
popular one among his playmates at
school and among the older associates
of his father was bountifully attested
to by the steady stream of visitors to
the homne Sunday morning offering
consolation and bearing floral tri
butes. The grave of the youling son
after the burial services was literal
Ily burdened with flowers.
The young fellow was a very bright
and manly youth, the oldest son in
the failly, possessing characteristles
that gave promise to develop hin in
to a man of ability an(d usefilness. In
his death, the parenis have the syin
pathy of their friends and all those
who knew of the boy's flie qualities.
