About the saddest incident I ever witnessed happened last Monday evening. Mrs. J.D. Bacon, of Grand Forks, Dakota, was visiting with her parents, Mr. & Mrs. G. W. Brundage. Her little boy not quite three years old who was a bright, intelligent little fellow, was playing around all day apparently enjoying the best of health, was across the way to one of the neighbors until 4 o'clock; then went home and asked for food. His grandma gave him one piece of bread and butter; he ate it and asked for a second. She also gave him that, he told her he would go to the door to eat it to keep the crumbs off the carpet, and in about one minute Mrs. Brundage heard something fall and on going to him found there was something wrong with him. They worked over him until nearly midnight but nothing did any good; he only breathed twice after they picked him up. The doctor pronounced difficulty heart failure. It was surely a sad blow to all of them. J.D. Bacon arrived here Tuesday night from Grand Forks. He was taken to Des Moines for interment.
