Lonie Dickerson

We announced last week the deathly sickness of Mrs. Dickerson's children with scarlet fever, and on Saturday, at 4 p. m., the youngest, Lonie, died. Her body has been since in charge of Undertaker Noel at his shop awaiting the prospective death of Eva, 8 years old, whose case was almost as desperate before her youngest sister was much sick, and has been ever since till now, but is to-day perhaps more hopeful. Mr. Curtis, Mrs. Dickerson's father, who resides near Lowell, Lake county, came out Wednesday of last week to aid and comfort his afflicted daughter, and intends to stay till Eva died or shows fair prospect of recovery, and then to take the dead, and living too if practicable, home with him, and bury the dead child or children by their father near his home. Mrs. Dickerson has been distressingly afflicted in the fatal and protracted sickness of her bright and lovely children, and has had abundant sympathy from neighbors, though but little present aid for fear of spreading such a dread contagion.
