ARNHALT, Dallas

MT STORM = A very sad death occurred in this community last Thurs when Dallas Aronhalt answered to the "Roll Call Up Yonder". He was taken with that dreaded disease, Scarlet Fever, on Sun in a very malignant form, and was sick only four days. He said he did not want to get well and almost absolutely refused to take medicine. Dallas was the younger son of Mary E and D W Aronhalt. He had but recently passed his 18th birthday, and bid fair to live many years. Thus again we are reminded that youth is no security against death. Our sympathies go out to the bereaved parents. Their little daughter, Helen, now has the same disease but seems to be getting along very nicely. Mr Aronhalt is also confined with symptoms of the same disease.
