Last night at 10:30 o'clock occurred the death of Erwin O'Meara, aged ten years. He was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. T.J. O'Meara and was a very bright and intelligent boy, the pride and joy of his parents, and his death will be a most grievous blow to them. He was taken with the dread diphtheria on Monday, and, although the best medical skill was invoked, and at the hour above named his young spirit fled.
The funeral will take place at 10 o'clock this morning from the residence of his parents, corner of Sixteenth and Main streets.
