A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is still
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled
God in his wisdom has recalled
The boon his love has given
And though the body moulders here
The soul is safe in heaven

U. G. Cooper, seventeen years old, died of typhoid pneumonia in his home near Aden Sunday noon.  The funeral took place from the home Monday afternoon, and interment was in Valley View church cemetery.

The pall bearers were: M. S. Kerun, R. T. Jones, Joe Horn, Capper Knupp, Gordon Bailey and O. W. Brill.

A sister of the deceased was extremely ill of the same dread disease at the time of her brother's death, with little hope of recovery, both having contracted the malady at about the same time.
