Little Child Dead.

The 14 months old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Burton Slavens of this city died last Sunday morning after a month's illness, its first trouble being pneumonia. Its final taking away was with something like consumption.

Rev. C.M. Aker held funeral services at the home Monday afternoon, after which the body was taken to Laddonia for burial. Deepest sympathy is extended the afflicted parents.
