Death Of  Walter MOSS Double Pneumonia the Cause of his Death 
Which Occurred Wednesday Morning 

Walter Dwight MOSS, the third son of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. MOSS, 
died at the family residence 121 North 12th St., at 8:20, Wednesday morning, 
the cause of his death being double pneumonia. His age was 12. Walter had been 
sick for six weeks, and had patiently borne all his sufferings, making a hard fight for 
life, but the little fellow's fight was in vain. A favorite with his playmates, always, and 
ever ready to take part in all their sports. His death has been expected for several days, 
but recently he showed slight signs of improvement, which gave the family hope that he 
might be spared. 

The funeral will be held at the First M. E. church Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, 
conducted by Rev. J. A. TAYLOR. The body will be laid to rest in Oakwood.
