- The death of Egidius Reitzel, a student of St. Jerome's College, Berlin, occurred last Tuesday evening. He was preparing for graduating this week. On Tuesday his classmates had driven up from Berlin to see him, and they found him bright and cheerful though very weak. His doctor held out hope for only about two weeks more. Soon after the members of the graduation class had left the sick room the young man weakened and passed away in the evening. The funeral was held on Friday in St. Clements and was one of the largest seen in the village for a long time. The school children and members of the Societies marched in a body. Solemn High Mass was celebrated by Rev. A. L. Zinger, with Rev. W. V. Kloepfer as deacon and Rev. Father Halm [?], the parish priest, sub deacon. The classmates of deceased assisted in serving at the altar and Rev. W. Kloepfer preached a touching funeral sermon.
