To many the sudden death of Theodore Day was a great surprise and this was especially true to those who knew him best. Mr. Day was a young man just entering upon life and his future was a bright one, hence his death, seemingly untimely, is the more a great blow to his friends and relatives. Mr. Day was 28 years old, and was the son of John H. Day, an old and respected citizen of Jordan Township. He began teaching school at the age of seventeen, teaching his last summer of '87 he studied law under W.B. Durborow of this place, and during the winter of '87 and '88 attended the law school at Ann Harbor, intending to make the law his chosen profession. About three years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Mattie Goens of Attica, and they lived very happily together until his death. Mr. Day but recently moved to West Lebanon from the farm in Jordan, where he began the practice of law. About three weeks ago, it became known that he had Bright's disease, from which he died last Saturday night about 11 o'clock. It was known that Mr. Day was not dangerously ill until within about a week of his death. The funeral services took place from the M.E. Church, which was tastefully decorated in West Lebanon, Monday at 2 p.m., conducted by the Rev. Conner, after which the remains were taken in charge of by the K of P lodge of West Lebanon, of which Mr. Day was a member. The services were very impressive, interment being made in the West Lebanon Cemetery. The unusually large attendance attested the universal respect, which all who knew him had for the deceased. Miss Anna Conner of Kickapoo, died Saturday morning of consumption and was buried Sunday at Kickapoo Cemetery.
