EDWIN PEARL CAVE, son of MR. and MRS. ED CAVE, died at the home of his parents, north of Decatur City, February 21, 1902, aged 15 years, 10 months and 22 days. He was born in Dallas County, Iowa, March 30, 1886. He was a kind and obedient son and a loving and affectionate brother.

The funeral services were held at the Christian Church in Decatur City on Sunday last, conducted by Rev. O.E. Hamilton, interment being in the Decatur Cemetery. He leaves a father, mother, two sisters, two brothers and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.

'Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart,
'Tis hard so hard to speak the words,
Must we forever part?

Dearest one we've laid thee
In the peaceful grave's embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished
Till we see thy Heavenly face.

EDWIN PEARL CAVE died at the home of his parents, MR. and MRS. EDWARD CAVE, north of Decatur City, on Feb. 21, 1902, aged 15 years, 10 months and 22 days. He died of that dread disease, hemorrage of the cappilaries. PEARL has only recently, apparently recovered from a siege of pneumonia and seemed to be gaining strength. He had been to Leon once and also out hunting. After hemorrage began its activity, quickly was the life taken from the home. He was a loving and affectionate brother and son. In his death a flower has been plucked from youth's fair and pure state in the garden of life.

The deceased was a neighbor boy of the writer who preached the funeral at the Decatur Church of Christ, the following Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Interment was made in the Decatur Cemetery. the family have the heartfelt sympathy of a host of friends in this lonely hour.

(Same poem/words as other obituary)

-- O.E. HAMILTON.
