    • Drowning Victims Laid to Rest

      A double funeral was held here last Saturday afternoon for Andrew Eichler and Earl Huehn, the two young boys who so unfortunately lost their lives by drowning below the mill dam last Wednesday afternoon. Private services were held at the homes after which the two corteges proceeded to Trinity Lutheran church where a joint funeral service was held by the pastor, Rev. Mr. Mosig. The church was filled to the doors by sympathizing relatives and friends of both bereaved families. Following a very impressive funeral sermon the two small caskets were placed in the funeral coach and the two funeral processions proceeded side by side to Riverside cemetery where the little bodies were laid into their last resting places. The pall bearers were all schoolmates and playmates of the two departed boys. Many beautiful floral tributes were sent by sympathizing relatives and friends. Rev. Mr. Mosig also had charge of the services at the grave sides. The Eichler boy leaves his sorrowing parents, six brothers and four sisters and his grandparents. The Huehn boy leaves his grief stricken parents and two brothers.
