The reaper death has visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. HENRY S. HARRIS, of Norton, Kan., and on Dec 5th, 1891, took from them their eldest child, Maurice Eaton HARRIS, aged 9 years, 11 months and 20 days. Maurice was an unusually bright and intelligent boy, of a sunny disposition, always anxious to be a good boy and the pride and joy of the now desolate home. The parents are nearly heart broken and all we can do is to ask them to turn to the all wise Father who sent little Maurice to brighten their home those few happy years and now has seen fit to call him home, where he will join his Grandma HARRIS and Grandpa EATON and other loved ones on that bright golden shore where there will be no more parting. And in it all we can only say "Thy will be done".

Note: mother was Amanada Eaton, daughter of Wells Eaton of Postville.
