Robert, the seventeen month old son of Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Helton, died at Texline last Saturday night, while being taken to the mountains.
The baby had been ill for three weeks with a complication of whooping cough and summer complaint, and Dr. Wallace had advised his removal to the mountains of Colorado as the only chance for recovery. The remains were buried at Texline and Mr., and Mrs. Helton returned home, where their little daughter Julia is quite ill with whooping cough.
