Infant Three Weeks Old Smothered by Bed Clothing During Festivity.

Chicago, March 12.—The christening of Agnes Slavin, three weeks old, at the residence of her parents, 712 North Wood street, Sunday night, was followed a few hours afterwards by the child's accidental death.

Among the neighbors who attended the christening festivities were four women who brought their babies along. After midnight Agnes was placed in bed, and because of the crowded condition of the house the four other babies, somewhat older, were put to sleep with her. When Mrs. Slavin went to look at the children at 4:00 o'clock she found her baby had been smothered to death by the bed clothing.
