HOMES IN MOURNING.
TWO BOYS BURIED IN A SAND BANK.
Earl Davis and Lloyd Funk the Victims\emdash
Elmer Morrow Narrowly Escapes.
Earl Davis, aged 16, was completely buried and must have died almost instantly. Lloyd Funk aged 7 years was covered except his head and hands. Elmer Morrow, aged 11, was more fortunate and soon freed himself.
He began to assist Lloyd, but before he could succeed another large bank of earth came rushing down, and little Lloyd's life was gone out forever.
The bodies of Earl Davis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Davis, and Lloyd Funk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Funk, of St. Louis, were brought to Clinton. The former was taken to the home of his parents and the latter to the home of A. M. Sackett, Mrs. Sackett [should be Mrs. Funk] being a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sackett, and was visiting them. A short time before the family was informed of the accident, a telegram was received from Mr. Funk, saying he would arrive in Clinton on the Diamond Special to spend Sunday with his family.
The funeral of Lloyd Funk was held at the Methodist church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Kumler, who delivered an impressive sermon. Many beautiful floral offerings were place about the casket by the hands of loving friends. The interment was in Woodlawn.
