Death has again entered the home of MR. and MRS. F.L. JENKINS, and took from their home their only daughter, WILMA, aged 6 months and l6 days. Little WILMA was sick for a few days being taken seriously ill on Saturday night and all that loving hands could do was done to relieve her sufferings, but on Wednesday morning, October 23, at 8:30, her spirit wended its way to God who gave it. She suffered intensely with bone erysiplas. Thus another tender plant budded on earth to bloom in Heaven. During her short life on earth she became a treasure to her parents and all who knew her, but our dear Savior has said, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.
