Owen Savage, a son
of J. A. Savage died at their home west of this city last Friday, and
was buried Saturday. The boy was attacked with brain fever and spinal
meningitis following measles and his condition was alarming from the first
and death ensued in spite of the loving care of the parents, and the best
medical skill of the physicians. The funeral was from the family residence,
and was conducted by Rev. T. S. Hawley, of the Presbyterian church, and
was attended by a large number of neighbors and friends. Owen was a most
promising boy, and his death is a severe shock to the family and friends.

people attended the funeral of the late Owen Savage at the home of his
father, Al Savage 2 ½ miles west of town. Rev. T.S Hawley of the
