We are pained at being under the necessity of chronicling the death of Laron, the eldest son of Brother Laron Pratt, who had been suffering for some time with typhoid fever, pneumonia and rheumatism, and finally succumbed to heart disease at 11:45 this morning.  He was a bright and promising boy of 15 years, and was universally beloved by his acquaintances.  The bereaved parents have our heartfelt sympathy in this their hour of sorrow.  May the Holy Spirit comfort their hearts.
