Death of Mr. Leonidas Whiteman

    Again, sorrow has laid her heavy hand on another one of our happy homes here in Sunny Slope, and took from our midst a loved and respected friend and front a sorrowful and grief stricken wife and mother, woman's greatest solace and comfort on this earth, a kind and loving husband and father. Mr. Leonidas Whiteman departed from this life, May 15th at 7:00 o'clock a. m.
    In my items a short time ago I mentioned Mr. Whiteman's sickness, but at that time we thought he would soon be well and out among at again. But that Great Supreme Ruler knew of a brighter and more beautiful future for Mr. Whiteman than this earth could ever afford, and took him home to where sickness, death and parting await us no more.
    And now, may God bless and protect Mrs. Whiteman and her three little children, Cudell, Mary and Jack, and abide with them through all this life and ever after.
