Death from Blood Poison
Edwin Sisk, the 9-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Walker Sis, of Elk township,
died Sunday night, the cause of his death being blood poison. About a week
before the boy had stepped on a rusty nail which penetrated his foot. Soon
afterwards the injured member commenced to swell and gave him great pain.
Medical attendance was at once secured, but blood poison had set in and nothing
could be done for the little sufferer and death came to his relief Sunday night
about six o'clock.
Funeral services were held on Monday. The deepest sympathy is extended to the
bereaved parents by neighbors and friends.
