Lake City, Nov. 7 - the funeral of Edward F., son of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Urie of this city, took place yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the Methodist Church and was largely attended, principally by pupils of the public school, the deceased having been one of the brightest and most proficient students of the high school. Rev. I. C. Jenkins conducted the impressive services and flowers were in great abundance.

The death of this proming youth occurred Sunday evening at 7 o'clock, very suddenly, after a week's illness of malarial fever, which was not considered serious. On Friday last he attended his classes at the high school and only on the day of his death did his illness show any signs of being of a serious nature.

He was also the grandson of the late Dr. E. F. Brown, a physician and faithful Christian gentleman, well known throughout the area, and whose death occurred only just a year ago.

Had he lived until the early spring he would have reached the fourteenth anniversary of his birth. His record at the high school had been and exceedingly bright one and full of great promise. An ambition to be a minister of the gospel, he had continually borne in mind, having taken as an example his noble grandfather.

He leaves a mother and father, a number of brothers and sisters and many friends to mourn his death.

Note: Edward's parents were: Henry Francis Urie 1866-1926 and Annie M. Brown.
