A little three year old baby boy of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Perkins of this place swallowed a watermelon seed on Sunday evening last, the seed lodging in his windpipe and finally passing into his lungs. On Monday evening, an operation was performed by Drs. Tedrowew and Gregoire, but it was too late to give relief and the little sufferer passed away Tuesday morning, September 15, 1908. The remains were interred in the Cheyenne Cemetery.
