YOUNG LADY'S SAD DEATH.
Ulu Sdl Knot Pihh Aw; In Huffalo
Foster, Sept. 5. The people of
our community were shocked on
learning of the death of Miss Sadie
Kranz, who parted this earth for the
world beyond the 1st inst. at the
home of her brother William, who re
siles in Buffalo Prairie. Miss Kranz
had just opened her fall term of
school at that place the week before
and was taken ill suddenly while par
taking of dinner at her boarding
place a week ago Sunday. The fol
lowing day she was taken to
her brother's home and had
anxiously hoped that she might
be taken to her own home,
but her condition would not permit.
Medical aid was summoned and some
relief obtained, LuLUMfeUoclurs were
somewhat alarmed at ber condition,
and as time wendon it was decided
that her only hopt2ajr, in undergoing
moderates n A
an operation, which was performed at
1 ox-lock Thursday afternoon. She
soon recovered from its effects and
seemed to be quite cheerful and it was
hoped that all was well, but as the
day drew to a close she began to fail,
and at 6 o'clock Friday morning sank
to eternal rest. Miss Kranz was widely
known and beloved by all, as was
manifested by the large concourse of
friends and dear ones who congregated
to pay their last respects to a loved
one. She will be sadly missed by
all, owing to her kind, cheerful ways,
and we might well say that a bright
shining rose has been plucked from
our midst. Miss Kranz had attained
the age of 22 years, 6 months and 5
days. The funeral occurred last Sab
bath from the Baptist church, con
ducted by the German M. K.
minister. Rev. Stulken, of the Wray-
ville church, at which place Miss
Kranz was a regular Sabbath school
attendant. Rev. Ryder, of the Bap
tist church, assisted him. When the
funeral cortege arrived at the church
the pupils of her late school formed in
line bearing a large pillow; then came
the teachers of an association of which
she was a member, bearing a wreath.
Six of deceased's cousins acted as pall
bearers. The services were very im
pressive and solemn and many a tear
was shed. Thi was the largest and
saddest funeral known to have taken
place in our community. Over one
hundred and fifty teams'followed the
remains to their last resting place.
