Harold, the eight-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Weimert, died last night at his home east of town. The death is a very sad one. The little fellow had just gotten over a severe attack of the whooping cough and was thin and worn out with the long siege but it was thought that he was regaining his strength.

About 6 o’clock Wednesday evening he was seized with a fit of coughing which they were unable to check and Dr. Ewing was called and worked over the poor little boy for several hours but the little fellow in his exhausted state was unable to clear his lungs and choked to death in spite of all that could be done.

Harold was the only boy out of a family of six children and was the youngest child, a favorite of the family. His parents and sisters have the sympathy of the community in their sad loss.

The funeral will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at the house. The services will be conducted by Brother Kellar of the Dunkard church, interment will be in Larned cemetery.
