Former Resident Dead
Word has been received here of the death of Nyle Pearce, a former resident of Lowell. His death occurred at Valparaiso on April 8th. He was living at Momence when he was taken sick with the "flu" which later developed into pneumonia. He recovered sufficiently to be taken to Valparaiso but later was taken worse, and passed away a week after arriving at Valparaiso. Funeral services were held and interment made at Valparaiso.
During his residence in Lowell Nyle made many warm friends, who will regret to hear of his death.
