The following remarks on the deaths published last week [were] crowded out last week, but will be appropriate now:
Five days little Annie suffered from the terrible disease with which the community has become too familiar, when the welcome messenger came to bear her disembodied spirit to the Angel World. Realizing that death was near she said, then I'll go to be an angel, which thought is the mother's only comfort.
