Charles Michel, son of Henry Michel and wife, who live in Third avenue, between Twelfth and Thirteenth streets, New Kensington, Pa., is dead.
Charles was 12 years and 7 days old, his passing occurring last Friday evening, November 15, about 6:30 o’clock. The boys demise was caused from typhoid fever, superinduced by a weak heart from which he had been suffering for years. He was a bright, lovable fellow and his death occasions much sorrow among his young friends and associates. His parent especially, have the sympathy of all in this, their dire affliction. They can only be commended to that power who doeth all things well. The lad was only sick a week. Besides his bereaved father and mother, three children are bereft at the joy and sunshine of their brother, who has crossed the great divide and entered that land from whence no traveler returns. Funeral services were held Sunday, Rev. N. S. Fiscus, of the first Presbyterian church, conduction a short service at the house. The remains were then taken to Bethesda church, where a short, but fervent prayer was made by the pastor and burial took place in the graveyard of that church.
