THE WESTERN STAR, 31 March 1916
Obituary of GAGE INFANT
(Gage child)
Mrs. Fred Webb of Protection-tp, received a visit last week from a sister, Mrs. Gage, whose home is in New Mexico. The visit, however, was brought to a sudden and very sad close. Mrs. Gage was accompanied by her 10 month old son. In Wichita, Mrs. Gage visited with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Schrock. While there she borrowed from her mother a suit case for use on the Protection visit. While at Mr. and Mrs. Webb's, the child was taken sick suddenly, the symptoms indicating that some form of poison had been swallowed. A physician was hurriedly called, but the
child lived only a short time. An investigation revealed the fact that in the suit case a few mercury dichloride tablets had been used by Mrs. Schrock for disinfecting purposes, and, by an oversight, one or two of the tablets had been left in the suit case. These, evidently, the child had found while playing about the open suit case and had swallowed them. It was an exceedingly sad death for the little one. To the bereaved parents the sympathy of all goes out in this their hour of severe
affliction. On Friday the body was taken to Artesia, New Mexico, for burial.
