MRS. DESSIE TRENT COLLINS died at her father's home near Van Wert last Thursday. The funeral services were held at the M.E. Church in Lacelle, July 22d, in charge of Rev. Tennant, in the presence of a large assembly of sympathizing friends. She was only nineteen years of age. She married about six months ago but consumption developed soon afterward and carried her to an untimely grave. It is a severe shock to her parents, the young husband and a large circle of friends.
