An old saying that trouble never comes singly has been verified very forcibly in the family of Mr. & Mrs. Elmer Dennis. Last week we chronicled the death of their baby boy and this week we are called upon to chronicle the death of their only daughter, which occurred last Thursday morning. Irma Dennis was very bright and considerate child, and would have attained her sixth birthday had she lived until the 10th of January. But God did not will it so and called her home to dwell with Him in a brighter and a better land that this. Her remains were interred in the cemetery here on Thursday afternoon by the proper authorities, as her death resulted from diptheria. The aching hearts and lonliness at such a sad hour can better be imagined than any pen can depict or describe. It will also be remembered that this unfortunate family lost their barn, granary, one horse and harness and nearly all of their hay by fire last fall. All join with us in extending profound sympathy to the bereaved family, but human words cannot pacify their aching hearts.
