Death of Allie Bright

One of the saddest deaths that has taken place in this city for some time occurred last Saturday at 5:30 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Leasure, when their son was taken from them, after a brief illness of but a few hours.

“Allie” Bright, as he was known to every one, has been a sufferer for many years from an acute form of stomach and liver trouble, the attacks of severe pain coming upon him at intervals and on account of these he had been unable to work any length of time for several years past.

Up until a few years ago, when the disease got such a hold upon his system, Allie was one of the most promising young men in the county, being unusually ambitious and anxious to make the most of his opportunities, and when the disease began to manifest itself he made several trips to Colorado in hopes of being benefited but after a severe attach of typhoid fever, his heart became affected and he was unable to endure the high altitude there any longer.

Although of late there did not seem to be any perceptible change in his condition he had undoubtedly been growing weaker, and his system could not rally after the last attack which came upon him suddenly, late Friday evening, and lasted until Saturday afternoon, when he apparently went into a quiet sleep from which he never awakened.

Services were held at the home of his parents Monday afternoon at two o’clock, Rev. Dr. Coltman officiating. They were short but very beautiful and the many flowers tokened the esteem in which the young many was held by his friends and acquaintances.

Daniel Alexander Bright was born in Larned December 22, 1878, and died June 29, 1907. A mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Leasure, two sisters, Mrs. George Norton and Mrs. Claude Grove, and a half-brother remain to mourn his absence and the heart-felt sympathy of a large circle of friends and acquaintances is extended to them in this sorrow which has come upon them.
