Ernest Bryant, son of Jerome M. Bryant, of Louisville, died the other day after a strange illness of about three months, which attacked another son about the same time.
The disease at first resembled hydrophobia, being succeeded by convulsions of a different type, ending in catalepsy, from which the child recovered, and related the most wonderful stories of heavenly millions of angels, golden streets and other beauties of the other world. His death, however, soon followed, and the brother is not expected to recover. Physicians are at a loss to explain the nature of the disease.

Tribute of Respect
BROTHER H. H. BRAYNT is no more.
The sad itelligence of his tragic death in a neighborhing state comes to us with the force of an electric shock. There is an unspeakable pathos surrounding his death that strikes a chord of tenderest sympathy in every heart. Away from his home on a pleasure trip, enjoying the camp life and the chase, no one had the remotest dream that he would so soon be numbered with those who have taken their place in the silent halls of death. It was only a few days ago
that he walked among us in the full vigor of manhood and glow of ruddy health. Tonight he sleeps the last, long sleep.
There was no trace of disease, no halting of the step, no pallid cheek, no hectic flush, no premonition whatever that the hour of his departure was at hand. He was so strong and robust, such a splendid specimen of physical manhood, and wish such illimitable power for good that his sudden death confounds us. Standing thus in the prime of life, his young well spent, his future full of hope, he was pierced by the shaft of the insatiable archer - Death. The last enemy was riding upon the passing breeze and caught his life away.
Brother Bryant was born in Trigg County, Kentucky., Feb 9, 1843, and was therefore closing his fify sixth year.
His devoted wife, formerly Miss Mary E. Guthrie, and six children survive him.
It is unnecessary to review the life work of our brother. He was a brave and gallant soldier fighting for the Confederate cause under the command of the intrepid Morgan.
Though modest and unassuming, he was a man of pronounced courage. Upon the record of his life there rets no blot
or stain. In peace and in war he was ever true to his colors and he leaves the priceless heriage of a Christian patriot s death.
Devotion to the causes of right has always been the rule of his civil conduct. A lover of Right, he was a foe to Wrong. At no time did he lag or falter, in the world s broad field of battle  and in the  bivouac of life . No man was a brighter example of the idea that man s first duty here is to those who, by the ties of home have claims upon him. He found the greatest charm about the fireside of his own home, in the presence of his loved ones, upon whom he lavished the affections of his heart. For them I is hard to realize that he is gone, and they give him up not without pain but with all the consolation that can soften a mighty sorrow. His place willb e hard to fill in this Castle Hall, and the loss of his earnest work and wise counsel will be felt.
He was indeed a worthy companion for loyal hearted and chivalric Knights, and  when he approached the river that Marks the unknown shore, his hands were filled with deeds of charity, the golden rays that ope the palace of eternity.  Therefore be it: Resolved, That in the death of Brother H.H. Bryant, Cumberland Lodge No. 17, Knights of Pythias, has lost one of the truest of men and most loyal of Knights, whose memory will be cherished and whose cousel will long be remembered.
That we extend to the bereaved family our sincerest sympathy to this hour of deepest grief, and big them  look through the gloom of sorrow night to the stars that shine beyond.  That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the family of the deceased, published in the city papers and spread upon the minutes of the lodge.
