Death of a Bright Little Boy.
Willie Prescott, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Blair, died very suddenly last Tuesday morning about 5 o'clock, at the age of 14 year and 4 months. Willie had not been well since last Friday, when he complained of having a head-ache. Nothing was thought of it as he was subject to head-aches, but on Saturday he was not so well and a physician was summoned, who prescribed for him, and he was at no time considered dangerously ill. The moring of his death, as his parents were seated near him, he felt for his heart, gasped and all was over. Willie was a bright, gentlemanly little fellow and was loved by all who knew him. His young mind was always filled with good, hid life was unstained and left bright evidence that his home was on the other shore.
The parents and brothers and sisters have the heartfelt sympathy of all in their sad bereavement. The funeral will take place from the residence on Orchard avenue this afternoon at 1:30 conducted by Revs. Reed and Scott.
