Ernest Butler, Aged 14, has Hemorrhage of the Brain
The life of Ernest Butler, the fourteen and a half year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry G. Butler, of Sunny Brae, came to a sudden and tragic end yesterday afternoon when he was seized with a hemorrhage of the lungs while on his way to school for the afternoon session, and died before he could be taken to his home. The young lad attended the Sunny Brae school in the morning at which he was a pupil in the fifth grade and at the noon hour had eaten his dinner and seemed to be in his usual good health. He had started out after dinner for the afternoon session and was walking along with one of his chums, Billy Milton, to whom he suddenly complained of feeling ill, asking to be taken home. The Milton boy started to take his companion to his home and was assisted a few minutes later by Mrs. Alexander Cale and together they virtually carried the sick boy to his home but on arrival it was found that he had passed away.
The family physician was summoned and after conducting an examination he stated that the boy had come to his death from a hemorrhage as the result of a burst blood vessel.
The lad had always enjoyed good health and never complained of being unwell right up to the moment he was stricken. His sudden death came as a great shock to his parents and other members of the family as well as his classmates at school, among whom he was highly thought of and was a most studious and industrious pupil.
Besides his parents, the youth leaves four brothers: Fred, Walter, Cecil and Raymond, also two sisters, Mary and Elsie, all of whom are at home. He was born in Moncton and his father is an employee of the C.N.R. shops.>
The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon with service at the home at two o'clock, leaving at 2:30 p.m. for Elmwood cemetery where interment will be made.
