Orville Karr, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander S.and Elmira (McLaughlin) Karr, departed this life last Friday and was buried Saturday. The cause of death was scarlet fever and erysipelas. On account of the contagious disease with which he died no funeral was held, simply a prayer and reading of scripture by Dr. H.P. Wallace at the grave and the remains of him who was deafly loved by relatives, friends and schoolmates was lowered to their resting place in the presence only of the family and a few others. The family is now quarantined and as soon as the quarantine is lifted public memorial services will be held in honor of the young man.
Orville Karr was born August 29, 1888, at the home farm north of Ireton where he passed away. At the age of twelve years he became a member of the United Presbyterian Church and has always lived an honorable and upright life.
The parents have the sympathy of all in their sad loss.
