Cora Mae, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ilenry Wilsey, aged 10 years, 9 months and 3 days. Cora, as she was fainiliarly calied, was a bright, interesting little girl, a loving and affectionate child. She loved to attend school, always aiming for a good education. lier illness was brief but severe, but she was patiënt and anxious to get better; and although loving hands did all that skill could do to relieve her, it was in vain. She was conscious to the end, and when she could no longer speuk to the sorrowing and griefstricken parents she put her little arms around her papa's and mamma's neck and kissed them, showing that she knew how deep their grief was and her affection for them. It is a severe affliction for her parents, and her little brother who survivea her, as they were attending school together when she was stricken down with the lisease, doublé pneumonía.. Although there is a vacant seat at the table, aud at the school she loverï to attend, we trust our loss is her gain. The funeral services were held froni the house on Tuesday. the pastor. Rev.
