Lourenda Osgood

Death of Mrs. C. H. Osgood.

It becomes our duty in this issue to record one of the saddest events of the season. Death is a grave visitor in any case, but when the young and good and beautiful are stricken down, those for whom we would have prophesied long life and much hapiness, we feel more forcibly its terrible realities. The death of Mrs. C. H. Osgood casts a deep gloom over the entire city. She was taken ill last Wednesday and rapidly grew worse despite every possible effort made by skilful physicians and loving friends [lone of type is creased and unreadable] absent at the time in Michigan, was sent for and arrived Friday night, but too late for a recognition from his loved companion, who sank rapidly and died at about seven o'clock Saturday evening. Her two brothers came just in time to see her breathe her last. Only a few short months ago the writer of this, attended Mr. Osgood's wedding, and penned a description of the same for our readers, little thinking as he told of the happiness of the bridegroom in the posession of so amiable and talented a lady that it would soon be his lot to speak of the same man's grief over the loved one lost. Mrs. Osgood has the respect and love of all who knew her, and much sympathy is felt for the grief stricken husband, mother and brothers. The funeral had a large attendance Tuesday afternoon from the house, Rev. E. S. Riley officiating.
