Died--On Thursday, July 9, 1885, May Robinson, of scarlet fever, aged three years, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Robinson, of Byron.
The little one had been sick some two weeks with this dread disease. The funeral services were very brief, conducted by Rev. J. Gibson, at the house. She was interred at the Byron Cemetery on the same day. Four more children of the family were also ailing, but under the care of Dr. Mix are now recovered.
