Mr. and Mrs. Tonjes Kruse were greatly shocked on finding their seven months old baby dead in it's bed Sunday morning. The little one was not sick, but about two o'clock in the morning the little one aroused them by fretting. It was attended to and after a time went to sleep. In the morning the parents thinking that their child must be nicely resting were very careful not to waken it and went about doing up the morning chores but on entering the room they discovered that their little darling was indeed resting; and in the arms of the great Comforter who had taken home the sweet, little spirit. The bereaved parents have the heartfelt sympathy of a host of friends who can only repeat the words of Jesus "For of such is the kingdom of heaven."
