Baird-At the residence of her parents in Bonaparte, Iowa, on Tuesday evening at 11 o'clock, Miss Gertrude Baird, age 27 years and 28 days
Upon hearing of this sudden death our people were surprised and shocked for it was not generally known the young lady was seriously ill, and in fact her case was not considered dangerous by either her folks or the attending physician.
Deceased was born in Bonaparte which place had always been her home. She was a kind and obedient daughter, and an affectionate sister. Her aged and afflicted father, her almost heart-broke mother, and one sister and one brother who keenly feel the pangs of bereavement, are left to mourn her loss. They have the sympathy of many friends.
Funeral services were held in the Baptist church this afternoon at 2 o'clock by Rev. G. W. Barber of Pulaski, after which the remains were interred in Bonaparte Cemetery.
