It is with deep regret, and much sympathy to her bereaved parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. McDonald, that we publish the death of Fay McDonald, aged 13 years and 30 days, which occurred on Friday, march 30, 1906. She had been sick a few days with a sore throat, but nothing of a serous nature was apprehended until Thursday, when blood poison set in, and on Friday at noon her spirit took its flight.
The funeral service was conducted by Rev. D. Rees in the M. E. church, where a large concourse of friends assembled to pay their last tribute of love and respect to the dear little girl whom has been taken from us.
"For of such is the kingdom of Heaven."
