Werle, the young son of Dr. and Mrs. Kirby, died July 14, 1906, from cholera infantum. Everything was done to save the life of the little one but to no avail. Werle was a bright eyed golden haired little fellow 2 years, 11 months and 24 days old, and his parents deeply grieve his loss and have the sympathy of the entire community.

The funeral services were conducted in the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon.
