Ethel Faye Eaton, 6-year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Eaton, Route 4, Mart near Prairie Hill, died in a Waco hospital Friday night of gunshot wounds sustained a few hours earlier in a neighbor's smokehouse. The child had gone to the farm home of Jesse West, and was playing with his small son when the rifle was knocked from a rack and discharged, bullet entering her forehead. She was rushed to the hospital where surgery and blood plasma failed to revive her.
Her mother had left her at the West home while she went to the postoffice to mail a package to her son who is a prisoner of war in Germany. Eleven brothers and one sister survive besides the parents.
