In Four Weeks Occurs in the Ketchum Family


     Wilbur, the 14-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ketchum of Virginia avenue, died yesterday morning (Nov. 26, 1906) at 10 o'clock of diphtherial croup.  A six-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ketchum died about four weeks ago of the same compliant.

     The Ketchum home was quarantined for over two weeks on account of diphtheria and the family was released from quarantine only a short time ago.

     Mr. Ketchum is employed as a motorman on the street car line.  His family seems to have had more than its share of sickness recently.
