Carl Frederick Kloph, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred.Klopf, of this city, died of typhoid fever at Milwaukee last Tuesday at 12 o’clock P.M., after an illness of seven days, aged 21 years and 26 days. The deceased was known to this community as a bright intelligent boy, whose goodness of heart was as boundless as his spirits were of buoyancy, and the announcement of his death is received with universal regret. He came to this place nearly eight years ago with his parents, and resided here until about two years ago, when he went to Milwaukee to learn the tinsmith’s trade with Henry Daniels, of that city. During that time he has visited his friends at this place several times, and during each visit gave abundant evidence that he was the same generous, good-hearted boy that he was when he went out into the world to carve out for himself a name and fortune. On Friday last his parents received a telegram stating that he was dangerously ill, and that evening they started for Milwaukee, remaining with him until Monday morning when they returned, owing to the illness of Mrs. Klopf, and his brother Henry went to attend him during his sickness, only to find on his arrival, the lifeless form of his beloved brother, Fred, the name by which he was generally known. The remains, accompanied by his brother Henry, Mr. Daniels, his former employer, and wife, were brought to this place yesterday morning and interred, the funeral taking place from the Presbyterian church at 2 o’clock P. M. Though dying among strangers, he had all the care and attention that could have been bestowed, and the friends he had made during his residence in that city to-day mourn with the friends here the loss of one they had learned to respect and love.
