Sad Death of Little James Dillon

James Oden, the infant son of Dr. and Mrs. J. A. Dillon, died at their home in this city, last Friday afternoon at 7:00 o’clock after a severe illness lasting several weeks.
The child was but little over three years old, having been born in Washburn, North Dakota, January 1, 1904, and was the only child of Dr. and Mrs. Dillon.

He had been suffering for several weeks from a severe attack of whooping cough which resulted in hemorrhages of the brain. Everything was done for the little one that human hands could do, but he never regained consciousness after the last stroke, and went quietly and peacefully into his last sleep.

Services were held at the house on Saturday, Dr. Coltman of the Presbyterian church officiating, after which the little body was laid quietly to rest in the Larned cemetery.

Dr. Dillon and his wife have lived in this city but a short time, about the many warm friends they have won during their residence here join in extending to them their sincere and heartfelt sympathy during this, the time of their bereavement.
