Merle Dixon, who has been sick with typhoid fever for about three weeks, passed away last Saturday morning at 6 o'clock.

Merle was born at Oldham, South Dakota July 10, 1989. When he was two years of age his parents moved to Old Otranto where the family lived for a few years. About seven years ago the family took up their residence in Lyle and here he became well known to us all.

The funeral was held at the Congregational church Monday afternoon and interment was made in Woodbury cemetery. Rev. Washington had charge of the services. The scholars in Merles' class at school attended the services in a body.
