After fifteen days of intense
suffering, death came as a relief
to little Lavelle at 9 o'clock last
Since the accident on Jan. 29th
everything that mortal could db
had been done to relieve the little
one's suffering and to bring about!
her recovery; Dr. McArthur and
a trained nurse being inconstant
attendance at the bedside.
Poisons generated in the sys
tem as a result of the terrible
burns brought on a plural pneu
monia, which was the ultimate
cause of death.
Lavelle was a beautiful child
of sweet disposition, and it is sad
and deplorable in the extreme
that her life was sacrificed by
man's uncontrollable thirst for
alcohol. Heaven will welcome
her spirit, and God in His infinite
mercy pass judgment.
The funeral will be held to
morrow, presumably in the after
noon, and the little body laid to
rest in the Eagle Valley cemetery,
